The answer is: First of all, give up everything for it. You have heard how in the South African Republic not many years ago the war of liberty was fought. An excerpt: "I must accept His will in every providence. Whether it be a Judas that betrays, or whether it be a Pilate in his indifference who gives me up to the enemy; whatever the trouble, or temptation, or vexation, or worry, that comes, I must see God in it, and accept it as God's will to me.

Trouble of any sort that comes to me is God's will for me. It is not God's will that men should do the wrong, but it is God's will that they should be in circumstances of trial. There is never a trial that comes to us but it is God's will for us, and if we learn to see God in it, then we bid it welcome. This sermon which originally appeared in the South African Pioneer was later republished in a condensed form in the Northfield Echoes. Focusing on what it means to have Christ dwelling in us, Murray shows that where Christ is present, His light will shine through us brightly.

Read Murray's sermon Christ dwelling in us. It is a birth that we leave behind us all the old methods of living. The chick in the egg gets its nourishment in a certain way, and has a certain mode of life.

When it is born it leaves the egg-life behind, and gets nourishment in a new way, and enters on a new mode of life. It has a new environment; and so do we when we are born again. The old associations are for ever left behind, and we reach out to perfectly new possibilities. Old things have passed away, and behold, all things have become new.

Give God time to produce in you this blessed birth, and then you will find that all the worrying and complaining, and fretting, and unbelief, and disobedience will vanish. The pride, and the envy and jealousy that ruined your life, will go too. Christ will be formed in you.

The blessed birth! It will prove to be the path into the blessed life. If you would be blessed, you must be born again. Well-Pleasing : Pleasing God in everything.

Keswick was a much appreciated holiness gathering, at which Murray was a featured and much appreciated speaker. An excerpt: "It is far easier to the flesh to submit without the answer than to yield itself to be searched and purified by the Spirit, until it has learnt to pray the prayer of faith. An excerpt: "According to this teaching of the Master, prayer consists of two parts, has two sides, a human and a Divine.


The human is the asking, the Divine is the giving. Or, to look at both from the human side, there is the asking and the receiving—the two halves that make up a whole. No; there must be something in the prayer that is not as God would have it, childlike and believing; we must seek for grace to pray so that the answer may come.

It is one of the terrible marks of the diseased state of Christian life in these days, that there are so many who rest content without the distinct experience of answer to prayer. Some cry for mercy, but take not the trouble to know what mercy must do for them. Others ask, perhaps, to be delivered from sin, but do not begin by bringing any sin by name from which the deliverance may be claimed. To all the Lord says: And what is it now you really want and expect Me to do?

Each believer has his own circle, his family, his friends, his neighbours.

It is when in such distinct matters we have in faith claimed and received answers, that our more general prayers will be believing and effectual. That the Lord, who is so loving and longing to bless, should have to be supplicated time after time, sometimes year after year, before the answer comes, we cannot easily understand. When, after persevering supplication, our prayer remains unanswered, it is often easiest for our slothful flesh, and it has all the appearance of pious submission, to think that we must now cease praying, because God may have His secret reason for withholding His answer to our request.

He prays, but it is more because he cannot rest without prayer, than from a loving faith that the prayer will be heard. But what a blessed release from such questions and perplexities is given to the soul who is truly abiding in Christ! He realizes increasingly how it is in the real spiritual unity with Christ that we are accepted and heard.

The union with the Son of God is a life union: we are in very deed one with Him—our prayer ascends as His prayer. It is because we abide in Him that we can ask what we will, and it is given to us. This document is adapted from his introduction to the book the Ministry of Intercession. Here he points out that he wrote With Christ in the School of Prayer to make two points: 1 That God wants to answer our prayers; 2 That those answers depend on certain conditions being met.

Accordingly he wrote the second book to promote more intercessory prayer that would obtain answers. Note the following paragraph:. A life abiding in Christ and filled with the Spirit, a life entirely given up as a branch for the work of the vine, has the power to claim these promises and to pray the effectual prayer that availeth much: Lord, teach us to pray.

This is considered by many one of the best books ever written on prayer. It should be required reading! An Excerpt from Murray's wonderful book—Dan.

We see it in Scripture, how it was in intercession for others that Abraham and Moses, Samuel and Elijah, with all the holy men of old, proved that they had power with God and prevailed. It is when we give ourselves to be a blessing that we can specially count on the blessing of God.

It is when we draw near to God as the friend of the poor and the perishing that we may count on His friendliness; the righteous man who is the friend of the poor is very specially the friend of God. This gives wonderful liberty in prayer. I have a needy friend whom I must help. As a friend I have undertaken to help him. If I, being evil, am ready to do for my friend what I can, how much more wilt Thou, O my heavenly Friend, now do for Thy friend what he asks? Andrew Murray developed problems with speaking in , and went through several years of silence, which limited his public ministry.

There he was completely healed. Out of this experience, Murray developed and promoted views that God wanted all believers to be in health, and would heal them if they only had sufficient faith, similar to A. Unfortunately some significant disappoints later occurred, when healings were not obtained even though there was much faith and much praying.

In my opinion the Bible does not support such views.

  • The fact that Andrew Murray was healed is encouraging and instructive—we should be praying more for healings! The Bible says much on healing and needs to be carefully studied to find the complete answer on healing—something we will try to do elsewhere on this website.

    We were taught what there was in Scripture to encourage us to faith and complete surrender. Let him call for the elders of the church, and let the elders pray for him. In the time of James there were physicians, but it is not to them the sick believer must turn. The elders then were the pastors and leaders of the churches, called to the ministry not because they had passed through schools of theology, but because they were filled with the Holy Spirit, and well known for their piety and for their faith.

    Why should their presence be needed by the sick one? Could not his friends have prayed? Yes; but it is not so easy for everybody to exercise the faith which obtains healing, and, doubtless, that is one reason why James desired that men should be called whose faith was firm and sure. Besides this, they were representatives to the sick one of the Church, the collective body of Christ, for it is the communion of believers which invites the Spirit to act with power.
