My mind wants to be anywhere but on God. If I open my eyes, my mind goes to the things around me, and if I close my eyes, it goes to imaginings about what the future might look like. My problem isn’t self-control and discipline—it is delight and vision. If I could see God as He is, how could I look away? Lord, let me see you this morning. For the sake of your Son and His kingdom, and let me behold His glory.

I think that one of the deceitful tricks of my heart is dwelling on what I might do for God instead of dwelling on God Himself. It is good to know my enemy, so I can better fight Him. Reveal to me, oh God, my heart’s hidden ways and sins that I might be at the work of putting them to death.

My chief help is prayer. I have NEVER in my life begun to study one single part of divine truth, without gaining some light about it, when I have been able really to give myself to prayer and meditation over it. … This I most firmly believe, that no one ought to expect to see much good resulting from his labours in word and doctrine, if he is not much given to prayer and meditation.

— George Müller
