Substantial and Dependable

"When all visible evidences that He is remembering us are withheld, that is best. He wants us to realize that His Word, His promise of remembrance, is more substantial and dependable than any evidence of our senses." C.G. Trumbull

"Groanings which cannot be uttered are often prayers which cannot be refused." C.H. Spurgeon

"Beware in your prayer, above everything, of limiting God, not only by unbelief, but by fancying that you know what He can do. Expect unexpected things, above all that we ask or think. Each time you intercede, be quiet first and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do, of how He delights to hear Christ, of your place in Christ; and expect great things." Andrew Murray

Hello Dr. Grant,
I will actually be in Nashville over the Easter holiday and I would like to attend your church services. I don't actually know where it is or even what the name of the church is! I have family in Franklin, and I would love to attend and I have no way to contact you otherwise! You can email me at Milesahead67@gmail if you have the time! Thanks so much!

I found some of his writings. Can you post the book along with the author of comments? It is great to go and read more from these great quotations.

"My last mark of the carnal state is that it makes a man unfit for receiving
spiritual truths. That is what the apostle writes to the Corinthians: "I
could not preach to you as unto spiritual; you are not fit for spiritual
truth after being Christians so long; you can not yet bear it; I have to
feed you with milk." I am afraid that in the church of the nineteenth
century we often make a terrible mistake. We have a congregation in which
the majority are carnal men. We give these men spiritual teaching, and they
admire it, understand it, and rejoice in such ministry; yet their lives are
not practically affected. They work for Christ in a certain way, but we can
scarce recognize the true sanctification of the Spirit; we dare not say
they are spiritual men, full of the Holy Spirit."
