“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.” (2 Chronicles 16:9).
God is looking for a man, or woman, whose heart will be always set on Him, and who will trust Him for all He desires to do. God is eager to work more mightily now than He ever has through any soul. The clock of the centuries points to the eleventh hour.
“The world is waiting yet to see what God can do through a consecrated soul.” Not the world alone, but God Himself is waiting for one, who will be more fully devoted to Him than any who have ever lived; who will be willing to be nothing that Christ may be all; who will grasp God’s own purposes; and taking His humility and His faith, His love and His power, will, without hindering, continue to let God do exploits.
“There is no limit to what God can do with a man, providing he will not touch the glory.”
This is not an address but an experience I am sharing with you: “I was converted in May 1974, but I only came into the full surrender of the heart six years later, in August 1980. The love of money was gone, the love of place was gone, the love of position was gone, the love of worldly pleasures and engagements was gone. God, God alone became my portion. I found my all in Him; I wanted nothing else. And by the grace of God this has remained and has made me a happy man, an exceedingly happy man, and it led me to care only about the things of God. I ask affectionately, my beloved brethren, have you fully surrendered the heart to God, or is there this thing or that thing with which you are taken up irrespective of God? I read a little of the Scriptures before but preferred other books, but since that time the revelation He has made of Himself has become unspeakably blessed to me, and I can say from my heart, God is an infinitely lovely Being. Oh, be not satisfied until in your own inmost soul you can say, God, is an infinitely lovely Being!’ As I am writing today I can look back to my ups and downs but I am still standing in His presence where there is the fullness of joy and pleasures are at His right hand.
I chose to promote the word of our Living God through the Internet where I can reach many more readers and if only one can accept the saving grace of the Lord the angels will rejoice in heaven. For the time appointed in now and we are to be ready for we may not know the hour or minute to come, but we must be ready.
I pray to God this day to make me an extraordinary Christian.
