“The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him” (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 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.”
I want to mention a man that touched many lives and though God has called him to higher service many years ago, his words still impact millions around the world: Brother Branham was born on April 6, 1909, and came into the full surrender of the heart to God, around 1933 (these are my recollections). 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 his portion. He found his all in Him; He wanted nothing else. And by the grace of God this has remained and has made him a happy man, an exceedingly happy man, and it led him to care only about the things of God.
I ask affectionately, my beloved brethren, have you fully surrendered your 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!’
I pray to God this day to make me an extraordinary Christian. I ask the Lord the same and even more for you. May Almighty God continue to bless and minister His love and grace to all of us now and always.
