Coming to God – DL Moody

Some people think God does not like to be troubled with our constant coming and asking. The way to trouble God is not to come at all.

The Height and Depth of God’s Word – DL Moody

I thank God there is in (God’s Word) a height I have never been able to reach, a depth I have never been able to fathom, a length and a breadth I know nothing about. It makes the book all the more fascinating and proves it divine.

Finding the Bible Ever New – DL Moody

Do not expect ever to exhaust the full meaning of Scripture. A supernatural God must have a supernatural Book. Finite minds cannot grasp the infinite. That is one reason why men who know the Bible best find it ever new.

You Need the Holy Spirit – DL Moody

There is no use in running before you are sent; there is no use in attempting to do God’s work without God’s power. A man working without this unction, a man working without this anointing, a man working without the Holy Ghost upon him, is losing time after all.

I Believe Jesus – DL Moody

I believe Jesus of Nazareth sooner than those unbelievers who say you do not need to be born again.

Crying for the Filling of the Holy Spirit – DL Moody

I was crying all the time that God would fill me with His Spirit. Well, one day, in the city of New York — oh, what a day! — I cannot describe it, I seldom refer to it; it is almost too sacred an experience to name. Paul had an experience of which he never spoke for fourteen years. I can only say that God revealed Himself to me, and I had such an experience of His love that I had to ask Him to stay His hand. I went to preaching again. The sermons were not different; I did not present any new truths, and yet hundreds were converted. I would not now be placed back where I was before that blessed experience if you should give me all the world — it would be as the small dust of the balance.
