“Everyone needs a house to live in, but a supportive family is what builds a home.”
Anthony Liccione

Charles R. Swindoll
“The size of a challenge should never be measured by what we have to offer. It will never be enough. Furthermore, provision is God's responsibility, not ours. We are merely called to commit what we have - even if it's no more than a sack lunch.”
Charles R. Swindoll

Amit Kalantri
“Respect cannot be inherited, respect is the result of right actions.”
Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

Corallie Buchanan
“When we look to God as provider, we are surrendering our independence and trusting someone else to meet our needs, over which we have no control. Letting go of our ‘dependence on independence’ and letting someone else take control goes against natural human instinct. We need to fight the urge to take over and just let God be God, because He can provide for us better than we can.”

Dallas Willard
“The cautious faith that never saws off a limb on which it is sitting, never learns that unattached limbs may find strange unaccountable ways of not falling.”
Dallas Willard

Charles R. Swindoll
“The matters we or the world might consider trivial, He cares about and wants to remedy. He longs to relieve our worries and has promised to supply our most fundamental needs.”
Charles R. Swindoll

“I still find my corrupt heart longing for tomorrow's bread. I can make a good argument to the Lord about how effective I can be if He would supply me with enough advance funds. It's a little frightening to pray for TODAY's bread. That means I must pray again for tomorrow and believe again for tomorrow. My greedy heart is willing to be corrupted by a little bit of riches so that I see my warehouse full of loaves. I can make a good argument about how God won’t have to be bothered with me every day if He would only advance me about ten years worth of bread.”
Gayle Erwin, The Yhwh Style

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“The worst of it is that while we continue to sink deeper into the muck and mire that we’ve created, in the very descent itself we ignorantly declare that in reality we are rising. And until desperation has crippled us sufficiently to confess the lie that we are lifting ourselves out of this mess, and until the panic of utter hopelessness has driven us to completely surrender all of the pathetic contrivances that we’ve fashioned that have put us there, we will never realize that God has readied solid ground that stands but a single step away”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“If where we are now and whatever we are going through does not motivate us to leave this world better than the way we met it, we are in this world for wrong reasons.”
Bamigboye Olurotimi

“Abiding does not mean sitting idly by. It means resting in the work, resting in the moment, resting in the truth, resting in the confidence that God is your provision.”

“When you eagerly depend upon the Lord for any provision, you eliminate all odds of disappointment.”

“My focus is not on the flood that surrounds me. Rather, my focus is on the God Who surrounds the flood.”

Ben Crawford
“The trail will only provide if you accept its offer. All of it. You must leave home. You must be broken. It will cost you your entire life as you know it. And then, and only then, can you receive. What you receive will be far greater than anything you had or anything you lost. It will change you. It might even heal you.”
Ben Crawford, 2,000 Miles Together: The Story of the Largest Family to Hike the Appalachian Trail

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“One day I found myself sitting utterly exhausted and wholly spent from this failed journey to secure everything that I wanted. And when the tears abated and my vision finally cleared, I was astounded to find that I had always been surrounded by everything that I needed. And I have not cried since.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“...have you ever considered that the very reason your earnings remain so small may be because you spend everything on yourself? If God gave you more, you would only use it to increase your own comfort instead of looking to see who is sick or who has no work at all that you might help them.”
George Muller

Brother Andrew
“She began by reminding me of the scriptural injunction that the ox grinding the corn must not be kept from enjoying the grain. Did I think God felt less about His human workers? Hadn't I better examine myself to be sure I was not nursing a Sacrificial Spirit? Wasn't I claiming to depend upon God, but living as if my needs would be met by my own scrimping?”
Brother Andrew, God's Smuggler

“If you want to identify the purpose of a thing, only its creator can provide you the answer”
Sunday Adelaja

“The procedure of process is when we start to correlate with all the stages and provide cyclic recurrence, connect one thing with another and close a loop”
Sunday Adelaja

Fahad Basheer
“When in doubt about provision, adopt peace of mind above money!”
Fahad Basheer

George Wither
“Yea, now I see, methinks what weak and vain
Supporters I have sought, to help sustain
My fainting heart; when injurious hand
Would undermine the station where I stand.
Methinks I see how scurvy, and how base
It is, to scrape for favors and for grace
To men of earthly minds, and unto those
Who may, perhaps, before to-morrow, lose
Their wealth, or their abused authority,
And stand as much in want of help as I.”
George Wither

“I would rather be in the middle of Beirut in a war zone, in God's will, than be in the most awesome tropical island, outside of God's will...”

“A Christian Entrepreneur's Prayer:

Dear Lord,

Thank you for the freedom to use the gifts you have given me, the wisdom to give them back to you for your glory, and the opportunity to serve you in the marketplace.

Today, I ask for strength to persevere through challenges that may come my way. Help me to rest knowing that you have fought and won every battle on my behalf.

I ask for provision so that my business would be a sustainable source of income for those that are connected to it. I ask for fresh inspiration and creativity so that I can positively impact and change lives.

Help me to run my business with integrity, diligence and compassion so that I can be a lighthouse in my industry and community.

I pray that you would turn the hardships into testimonies of beauty and that favor would follow me everywhere that I go.

Where I am lacking in faith, Father, help my unbelief.

I thank you for the confidence that I can have knowing you hear my prayers and that you will bring me to an expected end.

In Jesus’ name.
Amen.”

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“What we forget is that the past is not a place to live. Rather, it is the place that gives us what we need to live more robustly in a present that will become an even more magical past if we let it be so.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough, The Eighth Page: A Christmas Journey

“Here is the chief error that causes almost all the other errors by children of God concerning their calling. To be engaged in a business merely to obtain necessities of life for ourselves and family is not scriptural. We should work because it is the Lord's will concerning us. "Let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needs" (Ephesians 4:28).

The Lord generally meets our needs through our jobs. But that is not the reason why we should work. If providing the necessities of life depended on our ability to work we could never have freedom from anxiety. We would always have to say to ourselves, What will I do when I am old to work, or if I am sick? But if we are engaged in our earthly calling because it is the will of the Lord for us, He is sure to provide for us because we labor in obedience to Him.”
George Muller

“...in our culture, provision speaks a love language that the tongue may seldom profess.”
Cicely Tyson, Just as I Am

“God wants to prosper you because it is in your best interest...and His as well!”
Sébastien Richard, 5 Reasons God Wants You to Prosper

“All the deliverance and providence that God has re-established is now available to those who believe. The problem is...most do not believe.”
