“We need to be exchanging whispers with God before shouts with the world.”
“We must be with Him before we can be sent out by Him.”
“Am I bringing the fullness of God’s Spirit into this situation or am I bringing the fullness of my flesh?”
“I’ve had lots of opportunities I’ve chosen to say no to because I’ve said yes to something that I know is much closer to the assignment that God has given to me.”
“I think we chase this elusive sense of balance more than the Lord.”
“God allows things to happen slowly. He allows growth to happen in tandem with Him developing our character to match our call.”
