Oswald Chambers Quotes:


Holiness, not happiness, is the chief end of man.

We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties. 

We are not responsible for the circumstances we are in, but we are responsible for the way we allow those circumstances to affect us; we can either allow them to get on top of us or we can allow them to transform us into what God wants us to be.                                                                         

We pray when there's nothing else we can do; Jesus wants us to pray before we do anything at all.                                                                             

The great thing about faith in God is that it keeps a man undisturbed in the midst of disturbance.                  

God is not concerned about our plans; He doesn’t ask, “Do you want to go through this loss of a loved one, this difficulty, or this defeat?” No, He allows these things for His own purpose. The things we are going through are either making us sweeter, better, and nobler men and women, or they are making us more critical and fault-finding, and more insistent on our own way. The things that happen either make us evil, or they make us more saintly, depending entirely on our relationship with God and its level of intimacy.                  

True intercession involves bringing the person, or the circumstance that seems to be crashing in on you, before God, until you are changed by His attitude toward that person or circumstance. People describe intercession by saying, "It is putting yourself in someone else’s place." That is not true! Intercession is putting yourself in God’s place; it is having His mind and His perspective.

Andrew Murray Quotes:

Each time, before you intercede, be quiet first, and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do, and how He delights to hear the prayers of His redeemed people. Think of your place and privilege in Christ, and expect great things!

Humility is nothing but the disappearance of self in the vision that God is all.   

Our forgiving love toward men is the evidence of God's forgiving love in us. It is a necessary condition of the prayer of faith.

The great thing in prayer is to feel that we are putting our supplications into the bosom of omnipotent love.

Humility, the place of entire dependence on God, is the first duty and the highest virtue of the creature, and the root of every virtue. And so pride, or the loss of this humility, is the root of every sin and evil.

As natural and easy as it has been to be proud, it must become natural for us to be humble
