Praying people want all that God has in store for them

Wanting All of God

“I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day” 2 Timothy 1:3

“Praying people want all that God has in store for them. They are not satisfied with a low religious life; superficial, vague and indefinite.

Praying people constantly strive for more. They are not after being saved from some sin, but saved from all sin, both inward and outward.

They are not only after deliverance from sinning, but from sin itself, from its being, its power and its pollution. They are after holiness of heart and life.”

“In nature everything moves in the direction of its hungers. In the spiritual world it is not otherwise. We gravitate toward our inward longing, provided of course that those longings are strong enough to move us. Impotent dreaming will not do. The religious urge that is not followed by a corresponding act of the will in the direction of that urge is a waste of emotion.”

“Faith is not a notion, but a real strong essential hunger, an attracting or magnetic desire of Christ, which as it proceeds from a seed of the divine nature in us, so it attracts and unites with its like.”
