Unyielding Faith to the Promises of God

Just a couple of awesome quotes that I read this week about prayer.

The first one about Jacob really spoke to me - because I feel I have a lot to learn from Jacob. I feel their is hidden gems in the story of him wrestling with the angel and I can't wait until the Holy Spirit reveals more of what I am to learn from it.

"Jacob prevailed because he was persevering and determined. His victory is an evidence of the power of importunate prayer. All who will lay hold of God's promises, as he did, and be as earnest and persevering as he was will succeed as he succeeded. Those who are unwilling to deny self, to agonize before God, to pray long and earnestly for His blessing, will not obtain it. Wrestling with God- how few know what it is! How few have ever had their souls drawn out after God with intensity of desire until every power is on the stretch. When waves of despair which no language can express sweep over the suppliant, how few cling with unyielding faith to the promises of God." GC621

"When thick clouds of darkness seem to hover over the mind, then is the time to let living faith pierce the darkness and scatter the clouds. Truth Faith rests on the promises contained in the Word of God, and those only who obey that Word can claim its glorious promises." EW72,73
