A Few Morsels of Wisdom from J. Hudson Taylor:
“How important to learn… to move man, through God, by prayer alone.”
“He gives the very best to those who leave the choice with Him.”
Speaking of his co-laborer, William Burns: “His whole life was literally a life of prayer, and his whole ministry a series of battles fought at the mercy-seat.”
Mr. & Mrs. Howard Taylor writing of their father’s journals:
“For these unstudied pages reveal a growing intimacy with God and dependence upon Him. Faith is here, and faithfulness down to the smallest detail. Devotion is here and self-sacrifice, leading to unremitting labor. Prayer is here, patient persevering prayer, wonderfully answered. But there is something more: there is the deep, prolonged exercise of a soul that is following hard after God. There is the gradual strengthening here, of a man called to walk by faith not by sight; the unutterable confidence of a heart cleaving to God and God alone, which pleases Him as nothing else can.”
“The secret of faith that is ready for emergencies is the quiet, practical dependence upon God day by day which makes [Christ] real to the believing heart.”[1oo]
