When did you last hear anyone praying for revival, praying that God might open the windows of heaven and pour out his Spirit? When did you last pray for that yourself? I suggest seriously that we are neglecting this almost entirely. We are guilty of forgetting the authority of the Holy Spirit. . . . When God sends revival he can do more in a single day than in fifty years of all our organization. That is the verdict of sheer history which emerges clearly from the long story of the Church.
I say that we must talk to oursleves instead of allowing ‘ourselves’ to talk to us. Have you realised that most of your unhappiness in life is due to the fact that you are listening to yourself instead of talking to yourself?
