Aiden Wilson Tozer (1897-1963) was an American Pastor, Author, Editor and Spiritual Mentor.
The reason why many are still troubled, still seeking, still making little forward progress is because they haven’t yet come to the end of themselves. We’re still trying to give orders, and interfering with God’s work within us.A.W. Tozer
I really relate to these first two quotes. It is easy to feel troubled and want circumstances to go my way. Moreover, I tend to give God my “orders” and I want Him to hurry up and perform on my timeline instead of His.
God never hurries. There are no deadlines against which He must work. Only to know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves.A.W. Tozer
The man who would truly know God must give time to Him.A.W. Tozer
This is So true! I need to invest my time in Him, communicating through prayer and reading His Word, the Bible regularly!
I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by worship is not ready for heaven.A.W. Tozer
I’m not bored, I enjoy worship here on earth and really look forward to heaven where I get to see Him and worship at His feet.
Refuse to be average. Let your heart soar as high as it will.A.W. Tozer
The weakness of so many modern Christians is that the feel too much at home in the world.A.W. Tozer
It is very true that we become too comfortable here in the world.
