DuBois

POWERFUL QUOTES

“Spiritual things are not to be boasted of. One can boast of worldly riches, and the paper money will not fly away unspent nor will the amount magically decrease, but the spiritual riches you boast of vanish with the telling” – Watchman Nee

“Until a man is nothing, God can make nothing out of him” – Martin Luther
”Humility means two things. One, a capacity for self—criticism. . . . The second feature is allowing others to shine, affirming others, empowering and enabling others.

POWERFUL QUOTES

COMFORT

It is a comfort to hear the words of God in times of stress. God doesn’t comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters?

Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has done.

We should go to no place that we would not go in His Presence But He is not with us just to judge or condemn us; He is near to comfort, protect, guide, encourage, strengthen, cleanse, and help.‘ There are countless opportunities to comfort others, not only in the loss of a loved one, but also in the daily distress that so often creeps into our lives.

Because tragedy happened to you, it gives you a greater sense of oneness with others who experience tragedy.

Because we have been comforted through the Word of God we in turn may he able to comfort others.

When we are a comfort and encouragement to others, we sometimes surprised at how it comes back to us many times over.

Humanity wants comfort in its sorrow, light in its darkness, peace in its turmoil, rest in its weariness, and healing in its sickness and diseases: The Gospel gives all of this to us.
