Page 1 /Page 2 /Page 3 /
Trust in yourself and you are doomed to disappointment;....but trust in GOD, and you are never to be confounded in time or eternity.
Dwight L. Moody
Peace comes when there is no cloud between us and God. Peace is the consequence of forgiveness, God's removal of that which obscures His face and so breaks union with Him. The happy sequence culminating in fellowship with God is penitence, pardon, and peace - the first we offer, the second we accept, and the third we inherit.
Charles H. Brent
The foundation of the Christian's peace is everlasting; it is what no time, no change can destroy. It will remain when the body dies; it will remain when the mountains depart and the hills shall be removed, and when the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll. The fountain of His comfort shall never be diminished, and the stream shall never be dried. His comfort and joy is a living spring in the soul, a well of water springing up to everlasting life.
The Works Of Jonathan Edwards
Christ's life outwardly was one of the most troubled lives that was ever lived: tempest and tumult, tumult and tempest, the waves breaking over it all the time. But the inner life was a sea of glass. The great calm was always there.
One day when a certain man who wavered often and anxiously between hope and fear was struck with sadness, he knelt in humble prayer before the altar of a church. While meditat ing on these things, he said: "Oh if I but knew whether I should persevere to the end!" Instantly he heard within the divine answer: "If you knew this, what would you do? Do now what you would do then and you will be quite secure." Immediately consoled and comforted, he resigned himself to the divine will and the anxious uncertainty ceased. His curiosity no longer sought to know what the future held for him, and he tried instead to find the perfect, the acceptable will of God in the beginning and end of every good work.
Thomas a Kempis
Biography and Works
Peace does not dwell in outward things, but within the soul; we may preserve it in the midst of bitterest pain, if our will remains firm and submissive. Peace in this life springs from acquiescence to, not in exemption from, suffering.
Francois Fenelon Biography
If we have not quiet in our minds, outward comfort will do no more for us than a golden slipper on a gouty foot.
Christ died He left a will in which He gave His soul to His Father, His body to Joseph of Arimathea, His clothes to the soldiers, and His mother to John. But to His disciples, who had left all to follow Him, He left not silver or gold, but something far better - His PEACE!
Man is not at peace with his fellow man because he is not at peace with himself; he is not at peace with himself, because he is not at peace with God.
Let thy desire be the vision of God, thy fear the loss of Him, thy sorrow His absence, and thy joy in that which may take thee to Him; and thy life shall be in great peace.,
Teresa of Avila
Peace of heart lies in perfect resignation to the will of God. What you need is true simplicity, a certain calmness of spirit which comes from entire surrender to all that God wills, patience and toleration for your neighbour's faults, and a certain candor and childlike docility in acknowledging your own faults.
Francis Fenelon Biography
We want to see results, and preferably instantly...But God works in secret and with a divine patience.
Henri J. M. Nouwen
The turmoil caused by unbelief is brought to rest by faith. The strife rooted in unforgiveness is removed by love. Our fearful thoughts, He arrests through trust; our many questions are answered by His wisdom. Such is the mind which has entered the rest of God.
Ministries of Francis Frangipane
A great many people are trying to make peace, but that has already been done. God has not left it for us to do; all we have to do - is to enter into it.
Dwight L Moody
If we only desire a small piece of God in our lives, we will similarly have only that same measure of His peace in them.
Brian G. Jett
Where does your security lie? Is God your refuge, your hiding place, your stronghold, your shepherd, your counselor, your friend, your redeemer, your saviour, your guide? If He is, you don't need to search any further for security.
Elisabeth Elliot's Website
Cultivate peace; be deaf to your too prolific imagination; its great activity not only injures the health of your body, but introduces aridity into your soul. You consume yourself to no purpose; peace and interior sweetness are destroyed by your restlessness. Think you God can speak in those soft and tender accents that melt the soul, in the midst of such a tumult as you excite by your incessant hurry of thought? Be quiet, and He will soon be heard. Indulge but a single scruple; to be scrupulously obedient.
Francis Fenelon Biography
Peace is the deliberate adjustment of my life to the will of God.
Satan loves to go to the tranquil mountain you're on, and toss your joy into the valley. Peace is the huge pillow that cushions the falling joy. The greater the peace is, the more insured we can be that our joy is less damaged.
T. J. Cox
If God be our God, He will give us peace in trouble. When there is a storm without, He will make peace within. The world can create trouble in peace, but God can create peace in trouble.
