"If we are to be sanctified, it must be by the God of Peace Himself. The power that makes the life of the saint does not come from our efforts at all; it comes from the heart of the God of Peace. Some use the phrase 'to pray through'. What we have to 'pray through' is all our petulant struggling after sanctification, all the inveterate suspicion in our hearts that God cannot sanctify us. When we are rid of all that and are right before God, then God lets us see how He alone does the work.
When our feeble efforts, And from struggling cease, Unconditional surrender brings us God's own peace."
Oswald Chambers from
