It Is God Who Worketh All in All

"One day I was talking with a missionary," writes Andrew Murray, "and he said to me, ‘Brother, remember that when God puts a desire into your heart, He will fulfill it.’ That helped me; I thought of it a hundred times. I want to say the same to you who are plunging about and struggling in the quagmire of helplessness and doubt. The desire that God puts into your heart He will fulfill.

"If any are saying that God has not a place for them, let them trust God, and wait, and He will help you and show you what is your place. I have learnt to place myself before God every day, as a vessel to be filled with His Holy Spirit. He has filled me with the blessed assurance that He, as the everlasting God, has guaranteed His work in me. If there is one lesson that I am learning day by day, it is this; that it is God who worketh all in all.

Oh, that I could help any brother or sister to realize this!"

Andrew Murray ~ 1828-1917

  1. Yes. God began the work, and He has promised to finish it... then He alone can say: we finished well. Afterall Jesus glorifies His Father, and as we abide in Him, He will do the work that needs to be done so we can finish this race as He would like to see it done.
