If God’s Word isn’t providing the answers you need, perhaps you’re asking the wrong questions.
“You may fear that the Lord has passed you by, but it is not so: he who counts the stars, and calls them by their names, is in no danger of forgetting his own children. He knows your case as thoroughly as if you were the only creature he ever made, or the only saint he ever loved. Approach him and be at peace.”
— Charles Spurgeon
A wise son makes a glad father,
but a foolish son is a sorrow to his mother.
— Prov. 10:1
Unlike so many today, Billy Graham kept the main thing the main thing.
I don’t have a second to waste worrying over what Joy Behar thinks about Mike Pence’s faith, or mine.
“Evangelistic preachers almost always have an altar call. They ask people to make a decision—or to make public the decision they have already made in their hearts. Why? Simply because God seems to work when they do.
“Stan used to work at Wheaton College’s famous Billy Graham Center. In his three years there, Stan never had the opportunity to see the renowned preacher in the flesh—except once. Graham and his team had scheduled a June crusade at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis, and Stan and other BGC staffers and family members were invited to ride down in a chartered bus from the Chicago area to attend.
“That warm night Graham, who was getting well on in years, needed help to get to the podium. His youth and energy were things of the past, yet his commitment to see people come to Christ was undimmed. His message, as always, was simply about our need to trust Christ. Truth be told, the sermon was not notable for its erudition, and Stan quickly forgot it.
“But he didn’t forget Graham’s simple but powerful invitation at the end—and the thousands of people who streamed forward in response. Mothers, daughters, fathers, and sons came down to floor level as the music for ‘Just as I Am’ played. The Holy Spirit, working through the prayers, preparation, preaching, and invitation, was palpably present, and people responded. He will make his presence known through us, too.”

“God is too good to be unkind and He is too wise to be mistaken. And when we cannot trace His hand, we must trust His heart.”
— Charles Spurgeon
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
— Prov. 9:10
