Quoting Andrew Murray #2

This is my second post featuring quotes from Andrew Murray. (The first post is here.)
Prayer is what we need to be taught. And though in its beginnings prayer is so simple that even a small child can pray, it is at the same time the highest and holiest work to which anyone can rise. It is fellowship with the unseen and most holy One. ~ Andrew Murray, Teach Me To Pray
God takes upon himself the responsibility of your being full of the Spirit, not as a treasure that you must carry and keep, but as a power that carries and keeps you. ~ Andrew Murray, The Fullness of the Spirit
The Redeemer cannot allow a ransomed soul to go from the table of the covenant without hearing this glorious word: "Go now and leave your life of sin." In the presence of the cross and what your sin cost Him, in view of His love and all the blessings He has bestowed upon you, this word comes with divine power. ~ Andrew Murray, The Lord's Table
Our power to become holy is to be found in the call of God. He not only says, "I am holy," but "I am the LORD, who makes you holy" (Leviticus 22:32). Because the call comes from  the God of infinite power and love, we may have confidence that we can be holy. ~ Andrew Murray, The Path to Holiness
If you would be full of the Spirit, be full of the Word. If you would have the divine life of the Spirit in you grow strong and exercise power in every part of your nature, let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly. As the Word abides in you, the Spirit will reveal to you the will of God in every circumstance of your life. Let the written Word be transcribed on your heart. ~ Andrew Murray, The Spirit of Christ
Simple faith in God's Word and His love opens the eyes and the heart to receive and enjoy the indescribable glory of His grace. ~ Andrew Murray, Waiting on God
May our daily lives be the bright and blessed proof that a hidden power dwells within, preparing us for the glory to be revealed. May our abiding in Christ the Glorified One be our strength to live to the glory of the Father, our enabling to share in the glory of the Son. ~ Andrew Murray, Abiding in Christ

All that He has to give or can give is only more of himself, in order that He might take the more complete possession. The presence and the power of the glorified Christ will come to them that are of a humble spirit. ~ Andrew Murray, Humility
The ground for answered prayer is God's forgiving love. When God's love and forgiveness have taken possession of our hearts, we will pray in faith and we will live in love. ~ Andrew Murray, Believing Prayer
It is in the place of quiet where we are alone with God that our spiritual life is both tested and strengthened. There is the battlefield where it is decided every day whether God will have all of us and whether our life will be one of absolute obedience. If we truly conquer there, committing ourselves into the hands of our Lord and finding a refuge in Him, the victory during the day is certain. The superficiality of our Christian service comes from having so little real contact with God. If it is true that God alone is the source of love, goodness, and happiness, and that to have as much as possible of His presence, His fellowship, and His blessing is our highest joy, then surely to meet Him alone in the morning ought to be our aim. ~ Andrew Murray, A Life of Obedience
Christ came not only to deliver us from the law and its curse, but to bring human nature back into fellowship with divine life. ~ Andrew Murray, The Spirit of Christ
