Andrew Murray on humility

Andrew Murray in Humility: The Journey Toward Holiness:
Here is the path to the higher life: down, lower down! Just as water always seeks and fills the lowest place, so the moment God finds men abased and empty, His glory and power flow in to exalt and to bless.”*
The lower, the emptier a man lies before God, the speedier and the fuller will be the inflow of the divine glory.”*
Humility is the displacement of self by the enthronement of God.”
[To be] humble… is to be fully occupied with God….”
*There’s a song by Caedmon’s Call about this: Valleys Fill First.
