Words to Chew On

These are some exerpts from some of Beth Moore's books/studies that are compiled in a little min-book of mine. Thought I'd put some out there that leaped out at me and I believe are worth chewing on.

--Please beware! A head full of biblical knowledge without a heart passionately in love with Christ is terribly dangerous, a stronghold waiting to happen. The head is full, but the heart and soul are unsatisfied. Satan knows that we all long for passion. If we are not given to godly passion, we will be tempted by counterfeits.

--A powerful motivation for believing God in our present is intentionally remembering how He's worked in our past.

--If in our pursuit of knowledge, God seems to have gotten smaller, we have been deceived.

--The key to answered prayer is sharing the mind of Christ over any given matter through His words actively abiding in us.

--Part of Satan's ploy is to make his victims "feel" addicted and powerless.

--Believers are only powerless in their own strength, yet God has promised to provide a way of escape for every temptation.

--God's Word is our Sword of the Spirit, but we have to learn to use it if we are to be a powerful force for the kingdom and against the darkness.

--People with a genuine heart for God cannot remain in a practice of sin. At some point they will cry out in total desperation for deliverance. For those who have walked closely with God, the desire for a return to His intimate favor finally exceeds the lure of the seducer.

"Lord, many or the woes of the wicked, but your unfailing love surrounds the one who trusts in You." Ps. 32:10

"The Lord is the stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? Ps. 27:1

"They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor" Isaiah 61:3

"The LORD will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail." Isaiah 58:11
