It is extraordinary power from God, not talent that wins the day. It is extraordinary spiritual unction not extraordinary mental power, that we need. Mental power may fill a chapel, but spiritual power fills the church with soul anguish. Mental power may gather a large congregation, but only spiritual power save souls. What we need is spiritual power. Quote by Charles H. Spurgeon. Taken from: When God renews people by Bennie Mostert. Heavenly Father, please strip us from our own abilities. We humble ourselves before You and confess that we have done things to promote ourselves and not the fame of Your name. Convict us by Your Spirit and draw us back to You.
