Everything is safe that is committed to God. Nothing is safe otherwise.
Do not insist upon casual conferences or caution in dealing with God. No, go with boldness and perseverance.
Self-pity is the most reprehensible of sins in the human race.
Whoever defends himself will have himself for his defense. But let him come defenseless before God and he will have none other than God Himself for his defense.
The ancient curse in us will not go quietly - it requires something akin to the death of Abraham's love of his Isaac, his only son AND something akin to the hewing of Agag to pieces. This curse must be extracted, like a rotten, disease-infested tooth; expelled, violently like the money-changers before an angry Lord Jesus, and; excommunicated, like a whore/adulterer from the community and communion of saints.
Set thyself upon the pursuit of God. Your life and eternity depends upon finding Him, laying hold on Him, knowing Him and devoting yourself to Him forever.
