“I believe firmly that the moment our hearts are emptied of pride and selfishness and ambition and self-seeking, and everything that is contrary to God’s law, the Holy Spirit will come and fill every corner of our hearts.  But if we are full of pride and conceit, ambition and self-seeking, pleasure and the world, there is no room for the Spirit of God; and I believe many a man is praying to God to fill him when he is full already with something else.  Before we pray that God would fill us, I believe we ought to pray Him to empty us.”

Dwight L. Moody, Spiritual Power. Chicago; Moody Press, 1881/1997, page 32.
