‘The promise of deliverance, the assurance that we are accepted by almighty God, is not tied to the intensity of our faith, or to the consistency of our faith, or to the purity of our faith, but to the object of our faith. When we approach God in prayer, our plea is not that we have been good that day, or that we have just come from a Christian meeting full of praise, or that we try harder, but that Christ has died for us. Against that plea, Satan has no riposte’ – D.Carson

“The assumption of Spirituality is that always God is doing something before I know it. So the task is not to get God to do something I think needs to be done but to become aware of what God is doing so that I can respond to it and participate and take delight in it.” (E.Peterson)
