God

  1. I could prove God statistically. Take the human body alone–the chance that all the functions of the individual would just happen is a statistical monstrosity.–George Gallup

  2. A comprehended God is not God at all.

  3. Anyone can count the seeds in one apple, but only God can count the apples in one seed.

  4. If God would concede me His omnipotence for 24 hours, you would see how many changes I would make in the World. But if He gave me His wisdom, too, I would leave things as they are.–J.M.L. Monsabre

  5. If “God” is taken out of “good,” nothing (“0”) is left.

  6. God became a man to turn creatures into sons; not simply to produce better men of the old kind but to produce a new kind of man.–C.S.Lewis

  7. I cannot believe that God plays dice with the world.–Albert Einstein

  8. God hath in Himself all power to defend you, all wisdom to direct you, all mercy to pardon you, all grace to enrich you, all righteousness to clothe you, all goodness to supply you, & all happiness to crown you.

  9. God is not waiting to show us strong in His behalf, but Himself strong in our behalf. That makes a lot of difference. He is not out to demonstrate what WE can do, but what HE can do.

  10. Chateauneuf, Keeper of the Seals of Louis XIII, when a boy of only nine years old, was asked many questions by a bishop, & gave very prompt answers to them all. At length the prelate said, “I will give you an orange if you will tell me where God is.”
    “My lord,” replied the boy, “I will give you two oranges if you will tell me where He is not.”

  11. Someone wrote on a wall in Austria: “God is dead.”–Nietzsche.
    And someone else added beneath it: “Nietzsche is dead.”–God.

  12. The most crooked tree will make timber for the temple, if God be pleased to hew it.

  13. Appearances can be deceptive. The fact that we cannot see what God is doing does not mean that He is doing nothing.

  14. God is too great to be knocked off course by the malpractice of wicked men.

  15. The world belongs to God & He wants it back.

  16. God can never be out-maneuvered, taken by surprise, or caught at a disadvantage. He is a God Who knows no crisis. … Before an emergency arises, God in His providence has made adequate & perfectly timed provision to meet it.

  17. Were the works of God really understandable by human reason, they would be neither wonderful nor unspeakable.–Thomas Kempis

  18. Were I fully able to describe God, I should be God myself, or God must cease to be what He is.–Epictetus

  19. God’s works are never above right, though often above reason.–Thomas Fuller

  20. A sight of God’s glory humbles. The stars vanish when the sun appears.

  21. God has been known to bring giants to their knees, weeping like babies; God has been known to take corrupt minds & give them thoughts as pure as fresh-fallen snowflakes. God has been known to take a home, torn by strife, & make it the sweetest place this side of Heaven. God has been known to take men rotten & ripe for Hell, & make them jewels in the Kingdom of Heaven. God has been known to displace hate with love, sorrow with joy, war with peace, ashes with fire. God can do all things possible, & “Father! All things are possible with Thee!”–Charles A. Wickman

  22. I am startled by an atomic explosion 250 times the power of the Hiroshima bomb. I am impressed when scientists develop instruments so powerful they can pick up the sound of galaxies in collision far out in space. I am amazed to see a laser beam cut through a diamond as if it were paper. But I am completely lost attempting to define the power of God. Who can express in a word or even a thousand words the magnitude & grandeur of the power of God?

  23. God is always the first cause, but there are truly second causes; & they are the means which God uses, in the ordinary course of the world, for the accomplishment of His ends. It is the exclusion of such second causes which makes an event a miracle.

  24. A religion without mystery must be a religion without God.

  25. God formed us,
    Sin deformed us,
    But God alone can transform us.
