inspiration


I am reading a book called "abide in Christ" by Andrew Murray. It is very good. Here's quote from the second chapter:

"These two, consecration and faith, are the essential elements of the Christian life - the giving up all to Jesus, the receiving all from Jesus. They are implied in each other, they are united in the one word - surrender. A full surrender is to obey as well as to trust, to trust as well as to obey."

And here's two verses that stuck out to me in my devotions today:

"For the Lord is our king, it is He who will save us." Isaiah 33:22

"The fruit of righteousness will be peace, the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever." Isaiah 32:17

Have a blessed night!

    Barbara and John Stafford are reading the same book right now. Barbara was talking about this passage about surrender on Monday night at our Prayer Ministry meeting. I'm going to get the book and read it. Seems that the Lord is using it.
    Love,
