“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”
A.W. Tozer
“God never hurries. There are no deadlines against which he must work. Only to know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves.”
A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God: The Human Thirst for the Divine
“The reason why many are still troubled, still seeking, still making little forward progress is because they haven't yet come to the end of themselves. We're still trying to give orders, and interfering with God's work within us. ”
A. W. Tozer
“It is doubtful whether God can bless a man greatly until He has hurt him deeply.”

“Rules for Self Discovery:
1. What we want most;
2. What we think about most;
3. How we use our money;
4. What we do with our leisure time;
5. The company we enjoy;
6. Who and what we admire;
7. What we laugh at.”
A. W. Tozer
“I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by worship is not ready for heaven.”
A.W. Tozer
“Sometimes I go to God and say, "God, if Thou dost never answer another prayer while I live on this earth, I will still worship Thee as long as I live and in the ages to come for what Thou hast done already. God’s already put me so far in debt that if I were to live one million millenniums I couldn’t pay Him for what He’s done for me.”
A.W. Tozer
“I want the presence of God Himself, or I don't want anything at all to do with religion... I want all that God has or I don't want any.”
A.W. Tozer
“O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need for further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, the Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, so that I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, ‘Rise up my love, my fair one, and come away.’ Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wandered so long.”
A.W. Tozer
“Refuse to be average. Let your heart soar as high as it will.”
A. W. Tozer
“Perhaps it takes a purer faith to praise God for unrealized blessings than for those we once enjoyed or those we enjoy now.”
A.W. Tozer
“Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow. So one hundred worshipers met together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be, were they to become 'unity' conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship.”
A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God: The Human Thirst for the Divine
“One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organization do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team.”
A.W. Tozer
“Any faith that must be supported by the evidence of the senses is not real faith.”
A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy
“Jesus calls us to his rest, and meekness is His method. The meek man cares not at all who is greater than he, for he has long ago decided that the esteem of the world is not worth the effort.”
A. W. Tozer, Pursuit of God
“We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thoughts”
A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God: The Human Thirst for the Divine
“Faith is the gaze of a soul upon a saving God.”
A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God
“To have found God and still to pursue Him is the soul’s paradox of love.”

“When you kill time, remember that it has no resurrection.”
A.W. Tozer
“An infinite God can give all of Himself to each of His children. He does not distribute Himself that each may have a part, but to each one He gives all of Himself as fully as if there were no others.”
A.W. Tozer
“If man had his way, the plan of redemption would be an endless and bloody conflict. In reality, salvation was bought not by Jesus' fist, but by His nail-pierced hands; not by muscle but by love; not by vengeance but by forgiveness; not by force but by sacrifice. Jesus Christ our Lord surrendered in order that He might win; He destroyed His enemies by dying for them and conquered death by allowing death to conquer Him.”
A.W. Tozer, Preparing for Jesus' Return: Daily Live the Blessed Hope
“The man who would truly know God must give time to Him.”
A. W. Tozer
“The yearning to know what cannot be known, to comprehend the incomprehensible, to touch and taste the unapproachable, arises from the image of God in the nature of man. Deep calleth unto deep, and though polluted and landlocked by the mighty disaster theologians call the Fall, the soul senses its origin and longs to return to its source.”
A.W. Tozer
“What we think about when we are free to think about what we will – that is what we are or will soon become.”
A.W. Tozer
“Justice is not something God has. Justice is something that God is.”
A.W. Tozer
“We can never know who or what we are till we know at least something of what God is.”
A. W. Tozer

“True faith rests upon the character of God and asks no further proof than the moral perfections of the One who cannot lie.”
A.W. Tozer
“Let every man abide in the calling wherein he is called and his work will be as sacred as the work of the ministry. It is not what a man does that determines whether his work is sacred or secular, it is why he does it.”
A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God: The Human Thirst for the Divine
“We might be wise to follow the insight of the enraptured heart rather than the more cautious reasoning of the theological mind.”
A. W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy
“The vague and tenuous hope that God is too kind to punish the ungodly
has become a deadly opiate for the consciences of millions.”
A. W. Tozer
