whose hearts are fully committed to him. (2 Chronicles 16:9)
God is looking for men and women whose hearts are firmly
fixed on Him and who will continually trust Him for all He
desires to do with their lives. God is ready and eager to work
more powerfully than ever through His people, and the clock
of the centuries is striking the eleventh hour.
The world is watching and waiting to see what God can do
through a life committed to Him. And not only is the world
waiting but God Himself awaits to see who will be the most
completely devoted person who has ever lived: willing to be
nothing so Christ may be everything; fully accepting God’s purposes
as his own; receiving Christ’s humility, faith, love, and
power yet never hindering God’s plan but always allowing Him
to continue His miraculous work. C.H. P.
There is no limit to what God can do through you, provided
you do not seek your own glory.
George Mueller, at more than ninety years of age, in an
address to ministers and other Christian workers, said, “I was
converted in November 1825, but I didn’t come to the point of
total surrender of my heart until four years later, in July 1829. It
was then I realized my love for money, prominence, position,
power, and worldly pleasure was gone. God, and He alone,
became my all in all. In Him I found everything I needed, and
I desired nothing else. By God’s grace, my understanding of
His sufficiency has remained to this day, making me an exceedingly
happy man. It has led me to care only about the things
of God. And so, dear believers, I kindly ask if you have totally
surrendered your heart to God, or is there something in your
life you refuse to release, in spite of God’s call?
“Before the point at which I surrendered my life, I read a little
of the Scriptures but preferred other books.Yet since that
time, the truth He has revealed to me of Himself has become
an inexpressible blessing.Now I can honestly say from the depth
of my heart that God is an infinitely wonderful Being.
“Please, never be satisfied until you too can express from your
innermost soul, ‘God is an infinitely wonderful Being!’”
My prayer today is that God would make me an extraordinary
Christian. George Whitefield
