Hallesby: the Spirit's direction

Wednesday, November 27, 2013
    Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him.
    —1 John 3:21-22 (NIV)
    Our prayers are rendered ineffectual in the same degree as they take a different course than that in which the Spirit would lead us. And they become even more impotent when we come in conflict with the Spirit and grieve Him.
    ... O. Hallesby (1879-1961), Prayer, London: Inter-Varsity Fellowship, 1943, reprint, Augsburg Fortress Books, 1975, 1994, p. 117 (see the book)
    See also 1 John 3:21-22; Ps. 143:10; Matt. 7:11; 21:22; Luke 11:13; 18:10-14; Rom. 8:26-27; Eph. 4:30; 6:18; Jas. 5:16; Jude 1:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead my heart into conformity with Yours.
