Augustus Toplady — The breathing I did yesterday…

The breathing I did yesterday will not keep me alive today- I must continue to breathe afresh every moment, or my life will cease. In like manner, yesterday’s grace and spiritual strength must be renewed, and the Holy Spirit must continue to breathe on my soul from moment to moment in order that I may continue to enjoy Him and to work the works He has assigned me.

Ray Pritchard — God’s mercies come day by day…

God’s mercies come day by day.  They come when we need them- not earlier and not later.  God gives us what we need today.  If we needed more, He would give us more.  When we need something else, He will give that as well.  Nothing we truly need will ever be withheld from us.  Search your problems, and within them you will discover the well-disguised mercies of God.

C. H. Spurgeon — Ah! the bridge of grace…

Ah! the bridge of grace will bear your weight, brother.  Thousands of big sinners have gone across that bridge, yea, tens of thousands have gone over it.  I can hear their trampings now as they traverse the great arches of the bridge of salvation.  They come by their thousands, by their myriads; e’er since the day when Christ first entered into His glory, they come, and yet never a stone has sprung in that mighty bridge.  Some have been the chief of sinners, and some have come at the very last of their days, but the arch has never yielded beneath their weight.  I will go with them trusting to the same support; it will bear me over as it has borne them.
C. H. Spurgeon

Joni Eareckson Tada — Just think: Every promise God has made…

Just think: Every promise God has ever made finds its fulfillment in Jesus.  God doesn’t just give us grace; he gives us Jesus, the Lord of grace.  If it’s peace, it’s only found in Jesus, the Prince of Peace.  Even life itself is found in the Resurrection and the Life.  Christianity isn’t all that complicated…it’s Jesus.

Annie Johnson Flint — God has not promised skies always blue…

God has not promised skies always blue,
flower-strewn pathways all our lives through;
God has not promised sun without rain,
joy without sorrow, peace without pain.
But God has promised strength for the day,
rest for the labor, light for the way,
grace for the trials, help from above,
unfailing sympathy, undying love.
