Failure? Impossible.

I have decided to do a bit of compiling of powerful quotes, this time. I need them, and maybe you do too. I'll keep them to about a sentence or two...

"Centuries, ages, can never lessen the efficacy of His atoning sacrifice. Neither life nor death, height nor depth, can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus; not because we hold Him so firmly, but because He holds us so fast." -The Acts of the Apostles, pg.  552. 

"In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."             -John 16:33

" Look upon the wounded head, the pierced side, the marred feet. Remember that Christ risked all. For our redemption, heaven itself was imperiled. At the foot of the cross, remembering that for one sinner Christ would have laid down His life, you may estimate the value of a soul."           -Christ's Object Lessons, pg. 196.  

"The greatest victories gained for the cause of God are not the result of labored argument, ample facilities, wide influence, or abundance of means; they are gained in the audience chamber with God, when with earnest, agonizing faith men lay hold upon the mighty arm of power."  -Gospel Worker, pg.  259.

"God and Christ and the heavenly angels are fighting with you. . . . In the strength of the Redeemer, you can be more than conquerors." -The Faith I Live By, pg.  79.   

" When Satan tells you that you are a sinner, and cannot hope to receive blessing from God, tell him that Christ came into the world to save sinners..." -The Desire of Ages, pg.  317.  

" When the enemy tells you that the Lord has forsaken you, tell him that you know He has not; for He declares, "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee" (Hebrews 13:5). Dismiss the enemy. Tell him you will not dishonor the Lord by doubting His love. . . ."  -In Heavenly Places, pg. 275. 

"The moment of greatest discouragement is the moment when divine help is nearest."                                       -Colporter Ministry, pg. 108



What more can I say? A Savior that cares enough to give me promises like that... and then keep them...

Will carry us all through.

And we'll praise Him through eternity for His matchless love...



  1. I love that IHP quote. What encouragement!!

  2. Amen! Thanks for compiling and sharing.

  3. Such a blessing to read the promises, blessing, and encouragements from our Father, isn't it?! :D

  4. What encouraging words! Thanks for sharing those precious promises!

    1. Praise the Lord for encouraging words! "Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust." 2 Peter 1:4
