A.W. Tozer writes in the Pursuit of God: "Why do some persons find God in a way that others do not? Why does God manifest His presence to some and let multitudes of others struggle along in the half-light of imperfect Christian experience? Of course the will of God is the same for all. He has no favorites within his household. All he has ever done for any of his children he will do for all his children. The difference lies not with God but with us."

How open are we to trying something new, even if it takes a little effort on our parts.

Our spiritual receptivity or our openness to God depends on who is in charge.

The more God is in charge the more receptive we are to his voice and experiencing his presence.
