POWER FOR LIFE QUOTES BY MATT SORGER

Quotes taken from several chapters of the book Power for Life

FRUITFULNESS

Power for life is about having the internal force and ability to live life to it’s maximum potential. The power of God will be conducted in and through our lives as the fruit of the Spirit are cultivated and grown within us.

You must first see and know the hero God has created you to be, and that starts by knowing the Hero who already lives in you.

Choices are containers for power. Make the right choices, and your life will be transformed! 

True power comes from the life you live. Your hidden lifestyle will either release God’s abundant blessings or bring you into low-level living. 

It’s not enough just to start right; we also have to finish right. 

You are pruned if you do and pruned if you don’t. You might as well deal with it and let God produce His fruit in you. But there is one sure thing: it’s better to be cut back than to be cut off.

God will use your closest relationships to produce your greatest fruit.

When you are praying for someone else to change, God is looking for you to change. You might as well as die and get it over with.

When you think someone else is a “fruit tester,” remember you may be the “fruit tester” for someone else!

INTIMACY

Oh, to live constantly in His presence! This must be our highest pursuit in life.

I don’t often spend more than half an hour in prayer at one time, but I never go more than half an hour without praying. Smith Wigglesworth

Prayer, power, prayer. The power of God will be sandwiched in between our prayer life.

Seek to always cultivate His abiding presence in your life. Prayer will become as natural as breathing.

The time of business does not with me differ from the time of prayer; and in the noise and clatter of my kitchen, while several persons are at the same time calling for different things, I possess God as if I were upon my knees at the blessed sacrament. Brother Andrew 

There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful than that of a continual conversation with God. Those only can comprehend it who practice and experience it. Brother Andrew

Do you want to have a dangerous shadow? You can carry so much of God on your life that when you walk into a room, God walks in with you.

You can carry a level of power on your life that transforms people all around you everywhere you go!

When you learn to walk with God in an intimate way, His power within you is a natural overflow.

Your breakthrough into God’s presence will become a point of breakthrough for others.

GRACE

Power for life is not about how much self-effort you can put out to make your life better. It’s really about spreading your wings and flying, flying on the winds of God’s presence and grace.

God’s grace is His “well-timed help” just when we need it.

His grace truly is amazing. It lifts you above your own earthly limitations and allows you to live and experience God’s life in you.

Grace is given, not because we have done good works, but in order that we may have power to do them. Saint Augustine

God’s grace is there to help us get over ourselves.

You might not have fully arrived, but thank God you are not where you used to be. You are changing, and it is by you cooperating with God’s grace within you.

His power is flowing. His Spirit is moving. I have to slow down, look to see where His Spirit is moving, and then move into it. As I do, I receive His grace to do all He has called me to do.

You can’t cast yourself out. You have to kill and crucify your old self by God’s power within you.

Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live. The law tells me how crooked I am. Grace comes along and straightens me out. Dwight L. Moody

TRUTH

Just as a car needs to be aligned periodically, we need to have our minds continually aligned with truth, or we can go off course.

Where the mind goes, your life will follow. Don’t underestimate the power of your own thoughts. 

When people are seeking after power more than truth, they can fall into deception.

Truth causes you to soar far beyond the limitations and labels others have put on you. 

Truth is not what you feel. It’s what you know. 

IDENTITY

This is why so many people’s lives are a mess! They don’t know who they really are. They are living like Clark Kent when in reality they are Superman.

Knowing who you really are awakens your spirit to God’s unlimited potential.

Words are containers of power. They work in both the negative and positive direction. One word of life spoken over someone can have a ripple effect in their life, bringing them to a place of freedom and wholeness.

You must never take on a sinful label as your identity. 

When the enemy is able to keep a lie or stronghold undercover, he has you in his grip. But when that lie becomes uncovered, confessed, and renounced, the enemy loses his grip in that area of your life.

God’s truth forged my identity. My identity forged my purpose. 

When you connect with God through truth, you align yourself with your true spiritual and eternal DNA. 

When we are adopted by God as His children, we take on His name, His identity, His nature, His character, and His ways of thinking, talking, and acting. Our identity is no longer in our old life. Our identity is in Him.

FAITH

I am not moved by what I see. I am not moved by what I feel. I am moved only by what I believe. Smith Wigglesworth

I can get more out of God by believing Him for one minute than by shouting at Him all night. Smith Wigglesworth

Faith removes all the natural boundaries and limitations. Faith makes the impossible possible.

The secret behind getting more faith is to get to know God more. Lester Sumrall

No matter how old you are, it’s never too late for God to do something spectacular through your life.

When you make the choice to add action to your faith, you release the power of God into operation.

Faith will connect you fully and completely to His unlimited supply of power for every area of your life.

INTEGRITY

Integrity is what will harness God’s power in our lives to its maximum potential.

God is more concerned with our character than with our achievements. Achievements have importance only in the realm of time. Character is eternal. It determines what we will be through eternity. Derek Prince

Integrity involves a process of brokenness. But when we yield to this process, God’s power within us is able to reach its fullest and highest potential.

When we submit to God’s dealings in our lives, He gently breaks the areas of our stubborn wills that need to come under submission, and He empowers us to reach our maximum potential. 

As areas of self are broken, God’s power within us becomes harnessed to produce the greatest results through our lives.

The heart that can endure pressure over the long haul is a heart of character and integrity. 

Integrity is what will keep your heart strong and enduring. Integrity is what will ultimately qualify you to be a thoroughbred champion. It’s what will empower you to run your race and win.

When we are broken and release a sound of praise to God, our enemy is defeated. God’s power is released on our behalf through this divine strategy.

Ungodly cracks will leak the power of God. Godly brokenness will sustain and increase it. Godly brokenness releases the fire. Ungodly brokenness quenches it and puts it out.

Godly sorrow produces a change and transformation in our heart. Worldly sorrow does not. This carnal sorrow only feels bad for itself.

Cultivating a repentant heart is the essential key to living a life of integrity. A broken and contrite heart will fully turn to God in weakness and receive God’s strength to change.

True character and integrity are revealed in the choices you make when no one else is around. 

Integrity will cause God’s purity and light to shine in and through you with no hindrances.

It’s the unforeseen moments of decision that really mark the kind of person you are.

It’s usually the small decisions we make that can have the biggest impact.

You must every day make higher ground. You must deny yourself to make progress with God. You must refuse everything that is not pure and holy. God wants you pure in heart. Smith Wigglesworth

Association brings transference. Whatever you spend time with is what you become.
