PREFACE

How To Use This Book
      This is a source book. Each chapter is a unit of thought complete in itself. You do not have to begin at page one and conscientiously read through to the end. You might want to read one chapter and then another, beginning wherever your interest indicates. Or, you might want to read portions of several different chapters at one sitting. You will find inspiration in abundance in every chapter and on every page.
      If you are not averse to marking books, we would suggest that you mark statements freely as you read them, and eventually you might put cross references in the margins, plus your own personal index of the promises you find most appealing on the blank pages at the end of the book.
      Rich and inspiring promises such as these deserve to be read more than once. We predict that you will not read this book once and then lay it aside. The compilation is a gold mine of inspiration, and each statement is a nugget that will not be tarnished by time or circumstance but will retain its undimmed luster until time shall be no more. (Emphasis by italics is supplied)


      He bore my soulís disgrace, that in His name I might be an overcomer, and be exalted to His throne. Tell of His power, sing of His matchless love. In every trial He will be near you, and will give you grace and power according to your need.
                                      ó;Ellen White, Review and Herald, July 19, 1892
