Quotations from the Writings of Ellen G. White

            “It is your privilege to trust in the love of Jesus for salvation, in the fullest, surest, noblest manner; to say, He loves me, He receives me; I will trust Him, for He gave His life for me.  Nothing so dispels doubt as coming in contact with the character of Christ.  He declares, “Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out;” that is, ‘there is no possibility of my casting him out, for I have pledged my word to receive him.’  Take Christ at His word, and let your lips declare that you have gained the victory.”  TM 517

            “Simple faith, with the love of Christ in the soul, unites the believer to God.  While toiling in battle as a faithful soldier of Christ, he has the sympathy of the whole loyal universe.  The ministering angels are round about him to aid in the conflict, so that he may boldly say, ‘The Lord is my helper,’ ‘the Lord is my strength and my shield;’ ‘I shall not be overcome.’  ‘By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.’”  TM 147-8

            “It is our privilege to say boldly, yet humbly, ‘The Lord is my helper, therefore I shall not be moved from my steadfastness.  My life is hid with Christ in God.  Because He lives, I shall live also.”  TMK 228

            “The Lord declares that the gates of hell shall not prevail against His church.  Every sincere member of the church may include himself in these promises and say, “I am the Lord’s.  In His strength I am invincible.’  Then do not put on a doleful attitude and misrepresent my Lord, and act as though He had insulted you by giving you promises that He does not fulfill, as though you are having a hard time and are left alone to battle against the powers of darkness.”  UL 312

            “God will give a most wonderful experience to those who will say:  ‘I believe Thy promise; I will not fail nor become discouraged.’” 6T 335-6

            “Christ teaches humanity never to be self-sufficient.  He says, ‘Learn of me; I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls’ (Matt. 11:29).  Learn of the One, who was meek and lowly in heart – the One who has promised, “Ye shall find rest unto your souls.’  This glorious experience will come, and you will say, ‘I know Him!  I know Him!  I have tested Him; I have proved Him, and He has never failed me.’” UL 256

            “The time has come when all who work in Christ’s lines will have the mark of God, in words, in spirit, in character, in their honor of Immanuel, while so many of our people have been hovering about the mystery of faith and godliness, they could have solved the matter by proclaiming, ‘I know that Christ is my portion forever, His mercy, His gentleness hath made me great.’”  TDG 231

            “The language of the soul must be, ‘He is mine; I will never let go his arm.  He will bless me; the cleansing blood will be applied to my soul: ….  The language of the soul should be, ‘Because Jesus lives, I shall live also.’”  2 ST 370

            “The power of Christ is to be the comfort, the hope, the crown of rejoicing, of every one that follows Jesus in his conflict, in his struggles in life.  He who truly follows the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world, can shout as he advances, ‘This is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.’  (1 John 5:4)”  TMK 166

            “It is necessary to maintain a living connection with heaven seeking as often as did Daniel – three times a day – for divine grace to resist appetite and passion.  Wrestling with appetite and passion unaided by divine power will be unsuccessful; but make Christ your stronghold, and the language of your soul will be, ‘In all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us’  (Rom. 8:37).”  MM 144

            “It is the privilege of each to be able to say, ‘The Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and he will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom; to whom be glory forever and ever.  Amen.’” 5 RH 342

            “Every soul may say” ‘Lord, without thee I can do nothing in saving or keeping my soul from sinning against thee; but thou art able to keep me from falling, and to present me faultless before the presence of thy glory with exceeding joy.  To thee I commit the keeping of my soul as unto a faithful guardian, and I leave all in thy hands, knowing that thou doest all things well.’”  3 ST 40

            “Christ is called ‘the Lord our righteousness’ and through faith each one should say, ‘The Lord my righteousness.’  When faith lays hold upon this gift of God, the praise of God will be upon our lips, and we shall be able to say to others, ‘Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world’  (John 1:29).  1 SM 331

            “Would it not be better to take the blessed promises of God and apply them to yourself, bearing your whole weight upon them?  This is faith.  It is by faith that we are to come into sacred nearness to Christ, not depending upon feeling; we are to say, ‘I believe thy promise, Lord, because thou hast said it.  Thy word is pledged; we know that we are the children of God because we comply with the conditions, because he has pledged his word.’”  2 RH 415

            “Jesus does not desire you to wait to make yourself better; he desires you to take him today as your Saviour.  This very day say, ‘He is mine, and I am his.  I will give my soul into his keeping, and he will keep that which I have committed to his trust against that day.  Through faith he will give me victory over the temptations of the enemy.  I shall see of his salvation.  I shall triumph in God.’  Do you not think that such language as this will drive back the enemy from the tempted soul?”  2 ST 368

            “Every soul may say:  ‘By His perfect obedience He has satisfied the claims of the law, and my only hope is found in looking to Him as my substitute and surety, who obeyed the law perfectly for me.  By faith in His merits I am free from the condemnation of the law.  He clothes me with His righteousness, which answers all the demands of the law.  I am complete in Him who brings in everlasting righteousness.  He presents me to God in the spotless garment of which no thread was woven by any human agent.  All is of Christ’s and all the glory, honor, and majesty are to be given to the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sins of the world.’”  1 SM 356 

            “(Mt. 7:7,8 quoted).  Will you believe the assurances?  Will you say, ‘Yes, Lord, I take Thee at Thy word.  I will begin where I am, to talk an increase of faith; I will take hold of the promises; they are for me’?  O brethren and sisters, what we want is a living, striving, growing faith in the promises of God, which are indeed for you and for me.”  NL 39 

            “We have a right to say, In the strength of Jesus Christ, I will be a conqueror.  I will not be overcome by Satan’s devices.”  MS 31, 1911.

            “Talk and act as if your faith was invincible.”  COL 147

            “Let the language of each soul be, He is my Saviour, he died for me, and I hang my helpless soul upon him.  He is able to keep that which I have committed to his trust, against that day.  This is the precious lesson that I am learning today, to do the very best I can according to the best light that shines on my pathway, and then trust the rest to Jesus.”  2 ST 150

            “Say, He has spoken to me in His word, and He will fulfill every promise that He has made.  Do not become restless.  Be trustful.  God’s Word is true.  Act as if your heavenly Father could be trusted.”  1 SM 84

            “Why not make up your mind that you will stand in your God-given manhood and womanhood, and, through Christ, be overcomers?  Why not say, God has promised the power and I will win back the moral image of my Creator and Redeemer?  Do not allow the mind to hold communion with the enemy.  Do not talk of his power to discourage you.  Talk of Christ, who is able to save to the uttermost all who come unto God by Him….  Talk of His love, tell of His power and the angels of God will be attracted to you.”  2 ST 271

            “Come to Jesus, and receive rest and peace.  You may have the blessing even how.  Satan suggests that you are helpless, and cannot bless yourself.  It is true; you are helpless.   But lift up Jesus before him:  ‘I have a risen Saviour.  In Him I trust, and He will never suffer me to be confounded.  In His name I will triumph.  He is my righteousness and my crown of rejoicing.’”  1 SM 352

            “Satan may try to bind you to his car (chariot) as a helpless soul.  But shout in victory that Christ has made you a free man.  Do not dishonor God by one expression of inefficiency and inability to overcome fully, entirely, and gloriously through Jesus Christ, who has died to redeem you, and make you a free man.  Conquer, yes, conquer.  Put your will every moment on the side of God’s will.  Think hopefully and courageously.”  HC 41

            “Say, ‘I have asked my Saviour, He has set me free, and I am free indeed.  I am the Lord’s and the Lord is mine.  I will not fear.  I know that He loves me in my infirmities, and I will not make Him sorry by showing that I distrust Him.  I break with the enemy.  Christ has cut the cords that bound me, and I will praise the Lord.’

            Thus you can educate and strengthen your mind.”  3 SM 326
