David Jeremiah Quotations (2)

Nine years ago, we did a shorter version of quotations from David which was probably one of the first articles we did in the quotations series. (There were really only about six quotes.) So I decided to revisit this today.

David Jeremiah is a prolific Christian author, founder of Turning Point Radio and Television Ministries and senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church, on the southern edge of California bordering Mexico.

Note: As with all the quotations series, you’re encouraged to slow and read each one, and pause and think about it before rushing through to the next quote.


Head knowledge without heart knowledge is worse than useless; but when head and heart join forces, it changes our lives forever.

Integrity is keeping a commitment even after circumstances have changed.

Refresh your commitment today to test everything by the Word of God. The surest defense against spiritual deception is knowledge of spiritual truth.

Prayer is the way you defeat the devil, reach the lost, restore a backslider, strengthen the saints, send missionaries out, cure the sick, accomplish the impossible, and know the will of God.

God appeared to His people in the Old Testament and dwelt with His people in the New – and now abides in us by His Spirit.

You have inside you the capacity to invest your mental, emotional, and spiritual gifts in a way that glorifies God, impacts the world, and satisfies your own soul. I believe that-and I want you to believe it, too.

God created the heavens and the earth to reveal His glory. Don’t allow creation to eclipse and steal the worship God desires and deserves.

It’s not that your most important work is meaningless; it’s that your most trivial movements are also significant.

Don’t let obstacles along the road to eternity shake your confidence in God’s promise. The Holy Spirit is God’s seal that you will arrive.

Believers talk about trusting in the Lord with their whole heart and refusing to lean on their own understanding, but no one really knows what that means until circumstances cast them headfirst into a dark and painful place. If we give ourselves fully to God in those moments, we will obtain keepsakes of Him to treasure now and forever.

When you’re facing all the issues of life and you don’t know what to do, accept the fact that you are human. We all are. We don’t have the capacity to understand Almighty God. But you know what? We know Jesus Christ. He’s the wisdom of God. And He put His Holy Spirit in us. So having access to the Holy Spirit and Jesus, we can face the challenges of today with the wisdom of God.

The only way the corporate Body of Christ will fulfill the mission Christ has given it is for individual Christians to have a vision for fulfilling that mission personally.

When we share Christ, the Truth behind our transformation, we are offering people an opportunity to be transformed.

Your heavenly home was bought for a price, and that payment results in a title deed that can never be lost through foreclosure.

Many Christians have the mistaken notion that eternal life begins when they die. But that is not biblically accurate. Eternal life begins when we are born again into the Kingdom of God.

There are more on our previous quotations page for David Jeremiah from May 2012.

See also David Jeremiah’s website for daily devotionals.  Here’s a sample from earlier this week:

They’re With Me

Today’s Scripture: Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Romans 8:37

Recommended Reading:

For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.  1 John 5:4-5 (NLT)

Maybe it happens more in the movies than in our own lives, but it does happen. Someone important approaches the entrance to a restricted area where he is recognized and waved through. But the people with him are not recognized and are denied entrance. When the “celebrity” sees the problem, he turns and says, “It’s okay; they’re with me.” Suddenly the whole group is waved through. Knowing the right person has its advantages.

When Paul writes about hardships not being able to separate us from the love of God in Christ (Romans 8:35-39), he says we can overcome them because “we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us”—meaning Christ. He may have been thinking of Jesus’ words: “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33, NIV). It’s as if you and I are with Jesus when we suddenly encounter some trouble. Trouble waves Jesus past, but then He says to trouble—gesturing at us—“It’s okay; they’re with Me.”

Jesus has overcome the troubles of this world. If you are in Him, you have overcome them as well.

The Christian faith is not a way to explain, endure or enjoy this world, so much as to overcome it.  – Vance Havner
