"Jumping the Broom" Los Angeles Premiere - ArrivalsEach day is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift to Him.

You face your greatest opposition when your closest to your biggest miracle.

If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.

God’s grace is painted on the canvas of despair.

Never make a permanent decision about a temporary situation.

Your latter days are supposed to be greater than your former days.

It is God’s objective to make your condition line up with your position.

Faith will get in the ditch with you, faith will go in the prison with you, faith will go into divorce court with you, faith will go in the hospital with you, faith will go in the nursing home with you.

You are not going to defeat this devil with will power–you need the power of God and if you lose your faith you’ve lost the fight.

Jesus did not teach people to have faith–he said have faith in God.

Faith must always pass the test of discouragement.

God has invested entirely too much in you for you to be comfortable in anything less than you were created to be.

God will give you anything as long as you understand that he is the primary and not the secondary.

The art of avoiding extremes is an art that is drawn on the canvas of maturity and painted with the abstract strokes of many experiences.

As we forge deeper into this issue of forgiveness, we must be prepared to open up and discuss things that bother us before they escalate to a crisis level. We must examine our struggles with forgiveness in which there are not overt offenses or blatant betrayals. I’m convinced that seeds of resentment take root in the silent frustrations that never get discussed. Other people cannot read our minds–or our palms!–and that is why we have tongues to speak.

Everybody in here got something that you struggle with.

I’ll give you some symptoms of a sign that your faith is deteriorating–whenever you face all of your problems and you trust only your plans to get you out–it is a sign that your faith is deteriorating.

Even when things are getting worse instead of better–I believe God!

A whole woman will always attract a whole man. And when they touch, they will fuse to create a whole marriage. Ultimately, when the time is right, they will produce whole children.

You don’t have to sin to be carnal. People who are carnal just means they make all their decisions based on their senses.

You don’t know how much you’ve grown–until trouble comes back for an encore.

In order to make this journey–you have to make it without baggage. You can’t carry loads of bags with weight on you in order to be free and Jesus gives you an invitation to come unto him. Now you have to come to him–you will not get rest from anybody else. If you go to anybody else your going to find more work.

We are the people that we have been waiting for and no one else is coming.

I can never experience the next realm of glory until I crucify myself.

A setback is a setup for a comeback.

If Jesus didn’t come here to save us from our sins, what did he come for? I don’t believe that he came to give us cars and Cadillacs and big houses and rings and diamonds and gold and silver.
