Andrew Murray is a brilliantly straightforward author. There aren’t hidden meanings, or complex phrases, or deep theology to wade through; instead, he takes you right to the heart of the matter. And the heart of the matter in The Inner Chamber & The Inner Life is our daily personal devotional time with God.
Never before have I read a book like this that taught me how to prepare myself to have my personal quiet time with God each morning. I have made it a habit to pray before I open my Bible, asking the Holy Spirit to illuminate the Word to my heart. But Andrew Murray has given us 36 short chapters on how and why we should spend more time preparing ourselves even before we open the Bible.
I am a morning person, so I love to get up early to spend my quiet time with God before my day gets started. Whether you are a morning person or not, Andrew Murray makes a pretty good case for why the morning hour with God is indispensable. (I know my “night owl” friends may groan at this, but you really should check this out!)
If you would like to see your personal devotional time become a richer time with God, you will do well to read The Inner Chamber & The Inner Life.
