Give My Heart
My son, give me thine
heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways. Prov. 23:26
The Lord says to every one of you,
"My son, give Me thine heart." He sees your disorders. He knows that
your soul is diseased with sin, and He desires to say to you, "Thy sins
are forgiven." The Great Physician has a remedy for every ill. He
understands your case. Whatever may have been your errors, He knows how to deal
with them. Will you not trust yourself to Him?
The blessing of God will rest upon every
soul that makes a full consecration to Him. When we seek for God with all the
heart, we shall find Him. God is in earnest with us, and He wants us to make
thorough work for eternity. He has poured out all heaven in one gift, and there
is no reason why we should doubt His love. Look to Calvary. . . .
God asks you to give Him your heart. Your
powers, your talents, your affections, should all be surrendered to Him, that
He may work in you to will and to do of His good pleasure, and fit you for
When Christ dwells in the heart, the soul
will be so filled with His love, with the joy of communion with Him, that it
will cleave to Him; and in the contemplation of Him, self will be forgotten.
Love to Christ will be the spring of action. Those who feel the constraining
love of God, do not ask how little may be given to meet the requirements of
God; they do not ask for the lowest standard, but aim at perfect conformity to
the will of their Redeemer. With earnest desire they yield all, and manifest an
interest proportionate to the value of the object which they seek.
It is the submissive, teachable spirit
that God wants. That which gives to prayer its excellence is the fact that it
is breathed from a loving, obedient heart.
