Some Encouraging thoughts from Johny (Late John George Samuel)

  • My God will accomplish all that my faith has laid on Him. (Phil. 4:19; Ps. 37:5)
  • Christ said, “Let us go to the other side”, not into the middle of the lake to be drowned. (Ps. 139:7; 116:15; 36:7; 1 Sam. 25:29)
  • No, dear suffering child of God, you cannot fail if only you dare to believe to stand fast and refuse to be overcome. (2 Sam 17:2; Ps. 138:3; 2 Chr. 15:7-8; Deut. 20: 4, 8)

  • When God says, “Ask anything”, He does not expect us to be selfish, but to be grateful. (Rom. 7:24; Luke. 2:27; Ps. 116: 16, 17)
  • God hears many and varied requests. And yet, He never makes a mistake in answering any of them. His answer may not always be our way, but His perfect way is best. (1 John. 3:20; Heb. 13:9; 1 Thess. 3:13)
  • How much does prayer really mean to us if we can so easily set it aside? (Ps. 105:4; Is. 55:6; Acts. 17:27)

Facing Difficulties
  • The burden of suffering seems like a tombstone hung about our necks, while in reality, it is only the weight which is necessary to keep down the diver while he is hunting for pearls. (Luke 15:18; 1 Pet. 4:16; Col. 3:12)
  • “The blue of Heaven is larger than the clouds”. (Ps. 91:14; 1:29; Heb. 12:5)
  • The storms of life prove the strength of our anchor. (Ps. 27:3; Acts. 27:23; Matt. 7:24)
