One week ago, Dr. Myles Munroe transitioned from this life into heaven. Last Sunday, Munroe and his wife died in a plane crash along with several staff members and associates.
Munroe, an internationally renowned author, lecturer, teacher, life coach, government consultant, and leadership mentor, profoundly impacted my life. God used Munroe’s biblically based teachings on purpose, Kingdom living, leadership and prayer to deliver me from a religious mindset into a true understanding of Christianity and faith.
Several of my favorite Myles Munroe quotes:
“The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose.”
“A wedding is and event, but marriage is a life.”
“Circumstances and crises are God’s tools to move you into your purpose and the maximizing of your potential.”
“People generally fall into one of three groups: the few who make things happen, the many who watch things happen, and the overwhelming majority who have no notion of what happens. Every person is either a creator of fact or a creature of circumstance. He either puts color into his environment, or, like a chameleon, takes color from his environment.”
“When purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable.”
“The poorest man in the world is a man without a dream.”
“One of the great truths of the Bible is that whenever God gets ready to do anything in the earth, He always works through a person or a group of people whom He has called and who have willingly responded to Him. The human factor is key for God’s activity on the earth. When God prepared to deliver the Israelites from Egypt, He called Moses. When He got ready to rescue His people from the Midianites, He called Gideon. When God wanted to warn His disobedient people of His judgment and call them back to Him, He called Elijah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Amos, and the other prophets. When God was ready to send His Son into the world, He chose Mary, a humble peasant girl, to be His mother. When Jesus Christ prepared to send His message of salvation throughout the world, He called and anointed men and women—His Church—and commissioned them for the mission. This illustrates an incredible principle under which God operates: Without God we cannot, and without us God will not. For everything that God desires to do in the earth, He enters into partnership with those to whom He has already given dominion.”
“You must decide if you are going to rob the world or bless it with the rich, valuable, potent, untapped resources locked away within you.”
“Death can never kill an idea. Ideas are more powerful than death. Ideas outlive men and can never be destroyed.”
