„Вы уже женаты 29 лет. Какой секрет удачного брака?
Я постоянно восхищаюсь своей женой. Если у твоего соседа трава зеленее – это значит, что ты не поливаешь свою траву. Я непрерывно говорю Лизе: «Ты великолепна. Ты желание сердца моего. Ты превосходна». Для чего я это делаю? Во-первых, это помогает ей расцветать, потому что женщина отображает любовь своего мужа. Во-вторых, это помогает моему сердцу быть всегда влюбленным в нее. Сила и жизнь во власти языка. Лизе сейчас 51 год. Недавно она была в Киеве и один врач ей сказал: «Я думал, что Вам еще и сорока нет». Она ответила: «Это потому, что мой муж меня очень любит». Запомните, женщина является отражением любви своего мужа.“

„The man or woman who doesn't forgive has forgotten the price that Christ paid for them on the Cross.“

„Offended people still may experience miracles, words of utterance, strong preaching, and healing in their lives. But these are gifts of the Spirit, not fruits. We will be judged according to fruit, not gifting. A gift is given. Fruit is cultivated.“ The Bait Of Satan: Living Free from the Deadly Trap of Offense

„God is seeking those who hear His call to a life of worship. Those who heed are those who will walk in His presence. They will know Him intimately as He will manifest Himself to them.“

„Christianity is not a sprint but an endurance run. Therefore it is not how we start the race that counts, but how we complete it. How we finish is determined by the choices we make, and those are often formed by patterns we develop along the way.“ Honor's Reward: The Essential Virtue for Receiving God's Blessings

„Trials in this life will expose what is in your heart—whether the offense is toward God or others. Tests either make you bitter toward God and your peers or stronger. If you pass the test, your roots will shoot down deeper, stabilizing you and your future. If you fail, you become offended, which can lead to defilement with bitterness.“ The Bait of Satan: Living Free from the Deadly Trap of Offense

„Physical growth is a function of time. No two-year-old child has ever been six feet tall. Intellectual growth is a function of learning. Spiritual growth is neither a function of time or learning, but it is a function of obedience.“ Bait Of Satan: Living Free from the Deadly Trap of Offense

„Often God will send us what we need in a package we don't want. Why? To let us know He's God and we cannot second-guess Him. We cannot search for answers merely with our heads; we must seek Him and His provision with our hearts. Scripture cannot be interpreted from our limited human mental understanding. There must be a breath of the Spirit of God. He alone gives wise counsel and correct application.“ Honor's Reward: The Essential Virtue for Receiving God's Blessings

„If we don’t risk being hurt, we cannot give unconditional love. Unconditional love gives others the right to hurt us.“ Bait Of Satan: Living Free from the Deadly Trap of Offense

„How can a good God appoint cruel people to positions of authority? The answer is simple: God is the originator of the authority, but He is not the author of the cruelty. Man is responsible for his cruel actions, not God. All authority is of God, but not all authority is godly.“ Honor's Reward: The Essential Virtue for Receiving God's Blessings

„We all have life-defining moments. They are like open-book tests, but we don't know we have been examined until it is over.“ Honor's Reward: The Essential Virtue for Receiving God's Blessings

„If you believe in the Gospel what you like, and reject what you don’t like, it is not the Gospel you believe, but yourself.“ Good or God?: Why Good Without God Isn't Enough

„Many are unable to function properly in their calling because of the wounds and hurts that offenses have caused in their lives. They are handicapped and hindered from fulfilling their full potential. Most often it is a fellow believer who has hurt them.“ The Bait of Satan: Living Free from the Deadly Trap of Offense

„We construct walls when we are hurt to safeguard our hearts and prevent any future wounds. We become selective, denying entry to all we fear will hurt us. We filter out anyone we think owes us something. We withhold access until these people have paid their debts in full. We open our lives only to those we believe are on our side.“ Bait Of Satan: Living Free from the Deadly Trap of Offense

„When those who have been placed in my life to lead me and train me betray me and turn against me, as Saul turned against David, I will follow the example of David and refuse to let hope die in my heart. Holy Spirit, empower me to be a spiritual father or mother to those who need me to disciple, love, support, and encourage them. Father, raise up spiritual leaders in our land who can lead others with justice, mercy, integrity, and love. Allow me to be one of these leaders. When I am cut off from my father [physical or spiritual] through his insecurity, jealousy, or pride, cause me to recognize that as You did with David, You want to complete Your work in my life. Holy Spirit, release me from tormenting thoughts or self-blame and striving for acceptance. Cause me to seek only Your acceptance and restoration. I refuse to allow the enemy to cause me to seek revenge against those who have wronged me. I will not raise my hand against the Lord’s anointed or seek to avenge myself. I will leave justice to You. Father, cause my heart to be pure as David’s was pure. Through Your power, O Lord, I will refuse to attack my enemies with my tongue, for I will never forget that both death and life are in the power of the tongue (Prov. 18:21). I will never seek to sow discord or separation between myself and my Christian brothers and sisters, for it is an abomination to my Lord. I will remain loyal to my spiritual leaders even when they have rejected me or wronged me. I choose to be a man [or woman] after the heart of God, not one who seeks to avenge myself. Holy Spirit, like David I will lead my Christian brother and sister to honor our spiritual leaders even in the face of betrayal. I refuse to sow discord among brethren. I will show kindness to others who are in relationship with the ones who have wronged me. Like David I will find ways to honor them and will not allow offense to cause me to disrespect them. Father, only You are worthy to judge the intents and actions of myself or of those around me. I praise You for Your wisdom, and I submit to Your leading. Lord, I choose to remain loyal to those in a position of authority over me. I choose to focus on the calling You have placed on my life and to refuse to be diverted by the actions of others, even when they have treated me wrongly. Father, may You be able to examine my life and know and see that there is neither evil nor rebellion in my heart toward others (1 Sam.24:11).“ The Bait of Satan: Living Free from the Deadly Trap of Offense

„This truth remains: Only those you care about can hurt you. You expect more from them—after all, you’ve given more of yourself to them. The higher the expectations, the greater the fall.“ Bait Of Satan: Living Free from the Deadly Trap of Offense
