Quotes by Leonard Ravenhill

“A man who is intimate with God is not intimidated by man.” 

“No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few pray-ers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters. Failing here, we fail everywhere.”

“A man may study because his brain is hungry for knowledge, even Bible knowledge. But he prays because his soul is hungry for God.”  

“Entertainment is the devil's substitute for joy. ”  

“If we displease God, does it matter whom we please? If we please Him does it matter whom we displease?”  

“You can't live wrong and pray right.”  

“LORD strengthen me where I am too weak and weaken me where I am too strong!”  

“My goal is GOD HIMSELF. Not joy, not peace, not even blessing but HIMSELF...my GOD.”  

“Satan fools and feigns, blows and bluffs, and we so often take his threats to heart and forget the "exceeding greatness of God's power to us.”  

“The apostles had no gold, but lots of glory. We have lots of gold, but no glory.”  

“Today God is bypassing men—not because they are too ignorant, but because they are too self-sufficient. Brethren, our abilities are our handicaps, and our talents our stumbling blocks!”
