“Satan and God do not engage in hand-to-hand combat, with Satan sometimes getting the edge. That’s not the Bible; that’s Star Wars.”
“If we come to see the purpose of the universe as God’s long-term glory rather than our short-term happiness, then we will undergo a critical paradigm shift in tackling the problem of evil and suffering.”
—Alcorn

 Lord, every single gift comes from You…“Lift my gaze to see life from Your perspective. Help me to understand-and treasure-every good thing You send…”

(From James 1:7)   One Thousand Gifts   http://www.aholyexperience.com/

 471. “If we have the Lord Jesus, we have all–without Him, we have nothing. You can be happy without money, without liberty, without parents, and without friends, if He is yours. If you have not Christ, neither money, nor liberty, nor parents, nor friends can make you happy. Christ, with a chain, is liberty; liberty without Christ is a chain. Christ without anything is riches–all things, without Christ, is poverty indeed.” 
— William H. Hewitson, 1846

472. “There is no greater life and purpose than to live in communion with, and dependence upon, our great God. All things are from Him, through Him, and to Him (Romans 11:36), and to live our lives without giving Him the preeminence in all things is to be content with second best and to fail to live out the purpose for which we have been redeemed. 2 Corinthians 5:15, from the Amplified Version, says it well: “And He died for all, so that all those who live might live no longer to and for themselves, but to and for Him who died and was raised again for their sake.” Paul says it another way in 1 Corinthians 8:6: “Yet for us there is one God, the Father, and we exist for Him…” (Danny writing from prison Nov 2011)

474. Psalm 46: 1-3  GOD IS our Refuge and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and well-proved help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains be shaken into the midst of the seas, Though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling and tumult. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

475. I fly out to S.C. tonite–gone til Tuesday night.  Thank You Lord for this special gift  of physical, spiritual, and emotional rest and refreshment! 🙂
