Conquered by Goodness


We might well pray for God to invade and conquer us, for until He does, we remain in peril from a thousand foes.

We bear within us the seeds
of our own disintegration…

The strength of our flesh is an ever present danger to our souls. Deliverance can come to us only by the defeat of our old life. Safety and peace come only after we have been forced to our knees… So He conquers us and by that benign conquest saves us for Himself.

–A. W. Tozer
(1897 – 1963)
