Some Encouraging thoughts from Johny (Late John George Samuel)

  • The glory of tomorrow is rooted in the drudgery of today. (John. 15:2; Acts. 14:22; Esther. 8:15)
  • Can I call it suffering when the Lord is there to comfort and guide me? (Is. 40:1; 1 Chr. 7:22; Rom. 15:4)
  • We don’t know how the Lord works; but of one thing we’re sure, He works! (Is. 35:3-4; 55:8-9)

  • Delayed answers to prayer give us opportunities to honor God through our steadfast confidence in Him under apparent repulses. (Job. 42:1-3; Deut. 8:2; Ps. 11:5; Job. 23:10) 
  • Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. (1 Cor. 16:13; Eph. 3:16; 6:10; 2 Cor 12:9; Is. 40:31; 2 Tim. 2:1)
  • If you start something in faith, keep the faith. Your faith will win out in the end. (John. 5:24; Acts. 14:22; Heb. 6:12; Heb. 12:2-3)

  • Prayer is the telephone system between my heart and God. The Bible is His way of communicating with me. I need both. (1 Pet. 21:1; James. 1:22; Jer. 23:19)
  • Allowing God to answer our prayer in His own way, in His own time, is well worth the waiting. (Ex. 33:20; Deut. 3:26; 1 Cor. 12:8)
  • God is there to hear us when we have a special need. But how pleased He must be when we come to Him just because we want to talk. (1 Chr. 16:11; Ps. 63:1; Ps. 119: 2-4)
