He who gives attention to the word will find good,
And blessed is he who
trusts in the LORD. Proverbs 16:20
Augustine of Hippo
"Be rich in what matters to
What are you afraid of
in giving yourself? Of losing yourself? To
the contrary, it is by refusing to give
yourself that you lose yourself. Love itself
speaks through the mouth of Wisdom and calms
with one word the confusion into which this
saying threw you: “Give of your own self!”
If someone had wanted to sell you a piece of
land, he would say to you: “Give me your
silver” or, for some other thing: “Give me
your cash.” Now listen to what Love says to
you through the mouth of Wisdom:
“My child, give me
your heart” (Pr.23:26).
Your heart was in a bad way when it was your
own, when it was in your own hands. You were
a prey to emptiness, not to speak of evil
passions. Remove it from all such things!
Where will you take it? Where offer it? “My
son, give me your heart!” says Wisdom. Let
it only come to me and you will not lose it…
“My child, give
me your heart” (Pr.23:26).
He who created
you desires the whole of you...
"You shall love the Lord your God with
all your heart,
with all your soul, and with all your mind,"
We Can Have Confidence In Him,
For God Cannot Lie!
"So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are
unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have
fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that
lies before us"
this is the confidence that
we have in Him, that if we
ask anything according to
His will, He hears us. And
if we know that He hears us,
whatever we ask, we know
that we have the petitions
that we have asked of Him."
I John 5:14-15
It's easy to know the
will of God.
The Word of God is the will
says that He watches over
His Word to perform it. So
when you ask and believe the
Word of God, you are asking
and believing according to
His will and you will
receive, just as it says!
