Some Inspiring thoughts from Johny (Late John George Samuel)

¨     God expects His children to be confident in Him so that in any crisis they become 
       reliable.(Heb. 13:5,6; Is. 41:10; 43:2, 18-20)

¨      Look, He is coming with the clouds.(Revelation 1:7)
If there were never any clouds in our lives, we would have no faith. They are a sign that God is there. What a revelation it is to know that sorrow, bereavement, and suffering are actually the clouds that come along with God! (Mat. 17:21; Ps. 58:11; Eccles. 8:11; Heb. 12:11)

¨     We also can do marvellous things by trusting in God.(2 Sam. 22:29; 2 Kin. 3:16-23; 2 Chr. 20:22)

¨  Time spent in prayer gives more power to overcome temptations(Mat. 14:23; Mark. 14:32; Luke. 22:40)

¨  When I come into contact with the every day occurrences of life as an ordinary human being, is the prayer of God’s eternal Son being prayed in me? (Ps. 51:17;  Rom. 8:8; 15:1-3; Heb. 11:5)

¨  The point of prayer is not to get answers from God, but to have perfect and complete oneness with Him. When you seem to have no answer, there is always a reason.(John. 15:7; Ps. 66:18; Mark. 11:24)

Facing Difficulties
¨    Trials, when very heavy, kill very few people. But they make great ones.(2 Tim.2:3; Heb. 11:17; Job. 42:5)

¨ The path of sorrow and that path alone leads to the land where sorrow is unknown.(Heb 12:10; Gal. 5:24; Jer. 9:7)

¨  “The glory of tomorrow is rooted in the drudgery of today”.(John. 9:1-3; Ps. 34:19-20; Is. 26:16)
