Filled to all the Fullness

"A holy, joyful expectancy is of the very essence of true waiting. And, this is not only true in reference to the many varied requests every believer has to make, but most especially to the one great petition which ought to be the chief thing every heart seeks for itself---that the life of God in the soul may have full sway. That Christ may be fully formed within, and that we may be filled to all the fullness of God. This is what God has promised. This is what God's people too little seek, very often because they do not believe it possible. This is what we ought to seek and dare to expect, because God is able and waiting to work it in us." -Excerpt from "Waiting on God", by Andrew Murray. I may have posted this excerpt before...but I still like it :-). I recommend this book; it has encouraged me so much.
