“Dear friends, I am the little servant of an illustrious Master.”
“All God’s giants have been weak men, who did great things for God because they reckoned on His being with them.”
“Want of trust is at the root of almost all our sins and all our witnesses and how shall we escape it but by looking to Him and observing His faithfulness. The man who holds God’s faithfulness will not be foolhardy or reckless, but will be ready for every emergency.”
“God’s work done in God’s way will never lack for God’s supplies.
If we can only wait right up to the time, God cannot lie, God cannot forget: He is pledged to supply all our need.”
“How incomprehensible is the love of God! His ways are indeed past finding out. How many of His providences are like the cloud between the Israelites and the Egyptians – if looked on by unbelievers, or without faith, it is a cloud of darkness; but if viewed according to the privilege of the Lord’s people, it is no longer darkness, but light and safety. May this be your experience; may you feel that the Hand which inflicts the wound supplies the balm, and that He who has emptied your heart has filled the void with Himself.”
“Let people see God working, let God be glorified, let believers be made holier, happier, brought nearer to Him and they will not need to be asked to help.”
“We might be lifted up, perhaps, or lose spiritual life and power, if success were unaccompanied by discipline.”
“I have seen many men work without praying, though I have never seen any good come out of it; but I have never seen a man pray without working.”
“I cannot tell how I am buffeted sometimes by temptation. I never knew how bad a heart I have. Yet I do know that I love God and love His work, and desire to serve him only and in all things. And I value above all else that precious Savior in whom alone I can be accepted.”

In the closing months of his life said to a friend, “I am so weak. I can’t read my Bible. I can’t even pray. I can only lie still in God’s arms like a little child and trust.”
