Every time Jesus sees that there is a possibility of giving us more than we know how to ask, He does so. And in order to do so He often has to deal with us in ways which are past our finding out. – Ole Hallesby*
The quiet hour of prayer is one of the most favorable opportunities He has in which to speak to us seriously. In quietude and solitude before the face of God our souls can hear better than at any other time. O.Hallesby
When He gives quietness, who then can make trouble? Job 34.29

Susan, I love the phrase “quiet hour of prayer.”
And that verse in Job is perfect. Thanks for this treasure.
Is it not? I do too!
Love this verse. I have thought about it many times. Great accompanying quote, too!
Laurie, do you not love when a scripture gives great pause for pondering?
Kate| A Hundred Affections says
I love the quote! I’ve thought often about His ways being beyond our understanding and I’ve come to peace with that. But I love that side where He’s moving to give us more than we ask. It’s the perfect balance and motivation to stay hopeful! Thanks for sharing! Coming over from Mom Gene link up!
It IS the perfect balance and motivation to stay HOPEful. And, #hopechangeseverything
