Pieces of Words #6

I've collected a lot of quotes by Pastor Bill Johnson of Bethel Church lately, so all the quotes in this post will be from him. My next quotes post will return to being an assortment from all over. Enjoy!

"There is no such thing as worshipping God your own way."

"Favor increases your capacity to sacrifice and give to the Lord."

"On my best day, I’m alive because of mercy. On my worst day, I’m alive because of grace."

"Persistence in prayer doesn't change God. It shapes us for the answer."

"If you knew who God made you to be, you'd never want to be anyone else."

"If you don't live by the praises of men you won't die by their criticisms."

"No one has ever overdosed on encouragement."

"You know your mind is renewed when the impossible looks logical."

"What you tolerate will eventually dominate."

"Lists reveal God. They don't contain Him."

What are some quotes you've read or heard recently that stuck with you? I'd love to read them in the comments!

Oo--nice stuff! Thanks for sharing! These are some that have been going through my mind currently:

“I have wandered all my life, and I have traveled; the difference between the two is this—we wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment.” -Hilaire Bellos

“I can't decide where I want to go until I know where I am.” -Annie Chapman

“All my years to this moment
All my roads to this wall.
All my words to this silence
All my pride to this fall.”
-Songs of Sapphique (Taken from the book Incarceron.)

“I do this for freedom,” he said calmly. “In a world that offers none.” (Taken from the book Incarceron. One of the non-MC guys said it. Cannot remember his name.)
