Corrie ten Boom, The Hiding Place

"Even as the angry vengeful thoughts boiled through me, I saw the sin of them.  Jesus Christ had died for this man; was I going to ask for more?  Lord Jesus, I prayed, forgive me and help me to forgive him... Jesus, I cannot forgive him.  Give me your forgiveness... and so I discovered that it is not on our forgiveness any more than on our goodness on which the world's healing hinges, but on His.  When He tells us to love our enemies, He gives along with the command, the love itself."

Reason is not automatic, those who deny it cannot be conquered by it.

"The kingdom of God is the manifested glory of God. It transforms (restoration) and translates (revelation) things."

from Ray Prinzing -Daily Overcoming

To be silent, to be quieted, literally means the end of all projection of self.  The end of all action of our own will.  A ceasing from running to and fro seeking to fill up the inner void.


The word "rest" is literally, "to be silent, quiet, standing still."  There is a ceasing from our own works, an entering into His rest, and it comes as He fills us with Himself.   ... resting in His sufficiency, rejoicing in His love.

from Thomas a' Kempis (The Inner Life)

"In the Cross is salvation; in the Cross is life; in the Cross is protection; in the Cross is infusion of heavenly sweetness; in the Cross is strength of mind; in the Cross is joy of spirit; in the Cross is excellence of virtue.  There is no salvation, nor hope of eternal life, save in the Cross."

Zeph 3:17
The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior!  He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing.
