“Truth without love is brutality, and love without truth is hypocrisy.”
Warren Wiersbe
“God doesn't bless us just to make us happy; He blesses us to make us a blessing.”
Warren Wiersbe
“The Christian who walks with the Lord and keeps constant communion with Him will see many reason for rejoicing and thanksgiving all day long.”
Warren Wiersbe
“The ability to calm your soul and wait before God is one of the most difficult things in the Christian life. Our old nature is restless... the world around us is frantically in a hurry. But a restless heart usually leads to a reckless life.”
Warren Wiersbe
“God is not in a hurry. He kept Abraham and Sarah waiting twenty-five years before Issac was born, and Issac and Rebekah waited twenty years for Esau and Jacob, Jacob had to wait fourteen years to get the bride he really wanted, and then he had to serve six more years to build up his flocks so he could be independent, a total of twenty years. Twenty-two years passed between Joseph's betrayal by his brothers and the brothers' reconciliation in Egypt. God is not in a hurry because all His works are done in love. "Love is patient, love is kind" (1 Cor.13:4). Let's be grateful that God takes His time.”
Warren W. Wiersbe , Too Soon to Quit!: Fifteen Achievers from the Bible Teach Us How to Keep Going and How to Finish Well
“When it seems as if God is far away, remind yourself that He is near. Nearness is not a matter of geography. God is everywhere. Nearness is likeness. The more we become like the Lord, the nearer He is to us.”
Warren W. Wiersbe
“We have little control over the circumstances of life. We can't control the weather or the economy, and we can't control what other people say about or do to us. There is only one area where we have control--we can rule the kingdom inside. The heart of every problem is the problem in the heart.”
Warren W. Wiersbe
“A good book is like a seed: it produces fruit that has in it seed for more fruit. It is not a picture on the wall; it is a window that invies us to wider horizons.”
Warren Wiersbe
“Never doubt in the darkness what God has told you in the light.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, The Bumps Are What You Climb on: Encouragement for Difficult Days
“You feel like quitting, like giving up. You can’t understand why the road doesn’t get easier, why God doesn’t remove the stones and straighten the path. If God did that, you might never get to the top, because the bumps are what you can climb on.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, The Bumps Are What You Climb on: Encouragement for Difficult Days
“I will be satisfied to the extent that I see everything I have as a gift from God. Here is the truth: Everything you have – your money, talent, friendships, marriage, children, material possessions, health, home, bike, car, even the country you live in – is a gift from God that He had chosen out of His generous nature to give you.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Be Satisfied (Ecclesiastes): Looking for the Answer to the Meaning of Life

Warren W. Wiersbe, Prayer, Praise & Promises: A Daily Walk Through the Psalms
“The school of suffering never graduates any students, so ask God to teach to you the lessons He wants you to learn.”
Warren W. Wiersbe
“You may think that you are insignificant in the great plan of God, but you are not. You are tremendously important to God—so much so that Jesus died for you, and the Holy Spirit lives in you. You may seem small in your own eyes, and this is good; because God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. However, don’t let your humility become sin by making you believe you can do nothing for God. God can use you to help Him accomplish His will on this earth.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, The Bumps Are What You Climb on: Encouragement for Difficult Days
“God doesn’t want us to ignore the past; the past should be a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Jesus in the Present Tense: The I AM Statements of Christ
“Many people try to avoid looking back. To be sure, there is a wrong way to look back; it is wrong to look back at past sins and failures and defeats. That can only make you fail even more today. But it is good to look back to see where we have been and what the Lord has done in us and through us.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, The Bumps Are What You Climb on: Encouragement for Difficult Days
“There is no substitute for an understanding mind. Satan can defeat the ignorant believer, but he cannot overcome the Christian who knows his Bible and understands the purposes of God.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Be Mature (James): Growing Up in Christ
“Yield your heart and life to Jesus Christ. Be faithful to Him, no matter what men may do. The important thing is not the praise of men; it is the approval of God.”

Warren W. Wiersbe, The Bumps Are What You Climb on: Encouragement for Difficult Days
“Sow a thought and you reap an action. Sow an action and you reap a character. Sow a character and you reap a destiny.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, 10 Power Principles for Christian Service

Warren W. Wiersbe, Be Comforted

Warren W. Wiersbe, The Bumps Are What You Climb on: Encouragement for Difficult Days
“The person whose happiness depends on ideal circumstances is going to be miserable much of the time.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Be Joyful (Philippians): Even When Things Go Wrong, You Can Have Joy
“At least in the world we know, it takes trials to make something beautiful and useful out of the raw materials of life. The student’s struggle with truth develops his intelligence; the athlete’s struggle with his records and his opponents helps to develop his muscles and coordination; the musician’s struggle with more difficult pieces develops his playing skill; and the soul’s struggle with the trials of life helps to build character.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Why Us?: When Bad Things Happen to God's People
“The Lord prepared Moses for his ministry and took eighty years to do it. He was raised as a prince in Egypt and taught all that the wise men in Egypt knew. Some scholars believe that Moses was in line to be the next Pharaoh. Yet Moses gave all this up to identify with the people of God in their suffering (Heb. 11:24–27). God gave Moses a forty-year “post-graduate course” as a shepherd in the land of Midian, a strange place for a man with all the learning of Egypt in his mind. But there were lessons to be learned in solitude and silence, and in taking care of ignorant sheep, that Moses could never have learned in the university in Egypt. God has different ways of training His servants, and each person’s training is tailor-made by the Lord.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Be Equipped (Deuteronomy): Acquiring the Tools for Spiritual Success
“That this complex universe should appear by accident out of nothing from a “big bang” is as probable as the works of Shakespeare resulting from an explosion in a printing plant.”
Warren W. Wiersbe, Be Basic (Genesis 1-11): Believing the Simple Truth of God's Word
