Elisabeth Elliot Quotes.

11. "One does not surrender a life in an instant. That which is lifelong can only be surrendered in a lifetime."
- Quote by Elisabeth Elliot

12. "There is no ongoing spiritual life without this process of letting go. At the precise point where we refuse, growth stops. If we hold tightly to anything given to us, unwilling to let it go when the time comes to let it go or unwilling to allow it to be used as the Giver means it to be used, we stunt the growth of the soul. It is easy to make a mistake here, If God gave it to me, we say, its mine. I can do what I want with it. No. The truth is that it is ours to thank Him for and ours to offer back to Him, ours to relinquish, ours to lose, ours to let go of – if we want to find our true selves, if we want real life, if our hearts are set on glory."
- Quote by Elisabeth Elliot

13. "To love God is to love His will. It is to wait quietly for life to be measured by One who knows us through and through. It is to be content with His timing and His wise appointment."
- Quote by Elisabeth Elliot

14. "Our vision is so limited we can hardly imagine a love that does not show itself in protection from suffering. The love of God is of a different nature altogether. It does not hate tragedy. It never denies reality. It stands in the very teeth of suffering. The love of God did not protect His own Son. The cross was the proof of His love – that He gave that Son, that He let Him go to Calvary’s cross, though legions of angels might have rescued Him. He will not necessarily protect us - not from anything it takes to make us like His Son. A lot of hammering and chiseling and purifying by fire will have to go into the process."
- Quote by Elisabeth Elliot

15. "The world looks for happiness through self-assertion. The Christian knows that joy is found in self-abandonment. 'If a man will let himself be lost for My sake,' Jesus said, 'he will find his true self.' A Christian woman's true freedom lies on the other side of a very small gate---humble obedience---but that gate leads out into a largeness of life undreamed of by the liberators of the world, to a place where the God-given differentiation between the sexes is not obfuscated but celebrated, where our inequalities are seen as essential to the image of God, for it is in male and female, in male as male and female as female, not as two identical and interchangeable halves, that the image is manifested."
- Quote by Elisabeth Elliot

16. "When obedience to God contradicts what I think will give me pleasure, let me ask myself if I love Him."
- Quote by Elisabeth Elliot

17. "The will of God is never exactly what you expect it to be. It may seem to be much worse, but in the end it's going to be a lot better and a lot bigger."
- Quote by Elisabeth Elliot

18. "We never know what God has up His sleeve. You never know what might happen; you only know what you have to do now."
- Quote by Elisabeth Elliot

19. "It is God to whom and with whom we travel, and while He is the end of our journey, He is also at every stopping place."
- Quote by Elisabeth Elliot

20. "Our vision is so limited we can hardly imagine a love that does not show itself in protection from suffering.... The love of God did not protect His own Son.... He will not necessarily protect us - not from anything it takes to make us like His Son. A lot of hammering and chiseling and purifying by fire will have to go into the process."
- Quote by Elisabeth Elliot
