- A month of daily devotions
From the Preface...
In the will of God Creation has its origin, its existence, its happiness, its power, its glory.
In the will of God Redemption, too, has its origin, its maintenance, its blessedness, its power, its glory.
To the will of God even so the life of grace in the heart owes its origin, its maintenance, its blessedness, its power, and its glory.
In knowing and loving, in doing and bearing, in fulfilling all that will the spiritual life finds its growth, its rest, its joy, its strength, its fruitfulness, its everlasting blessedness.
The one things needful for a Christian is that he live in the will of God.
Come walk with Andrew Murray for 30 days and discover more about the blessed will of God and how to conform your will to His will. Written in brief chapters, the words of this godly man will surely encourage, stir, and move you to promptly find and do the sweet will of God.
About the Author
Andrew Murray Jr. was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1828. He was the second child of Andrew Murray Sr., a Scottish Presbyterian serving the Dutch Reformed Church of South Africa as a missionary. Andrew was sent to Aberdeen in Scotland for his initial education together with his elder brother, John. Both remained there until they obtained their M.A in 1845. From there they both went to the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands where they studied theology. Both brothers were ordained by the Hague Committee of the Dutch Reformed Church on May 9, 1848 and returned to the Cape.
Andrew pastored churches in Bloemfontein, Worcester, Cape Town and Wellington, all in South Africa. He was an amazingly prolific Christian author. All of his publications were originally written in Dutch and then translated into English. As his popularity grew, Murray's books found their way into more than twelve foreign languages during his lifetime alone. Murray is best known for his devotional writings, which place great emphasis on the need for a rich, personal devotional life. Several of his books have become classics, including: Abide in Christ, Absolute Surrender and Waiting on God.
He helped to found what are now the University College of the Orange Free State and the Stellenbosch Seminary. He served as moderator of the Cape Synod of the Dutch Reformed Church and was president of both the YMCA and the South African General Mission, now the Africa Evangelical Fellowship.
Murray was an alert and intense man. He died on January 18, 1917 - four months before his eighty-ninth birthday. For his contribution to world missions, he was given an honorary doctorate by the universities of Aberdeen and Cape of Good Hope.
