On Yielding to God


“James Mountain, a minister in England and a contemporary of Frances said ‘our souls should be like aspen leaves, responsive to the least breath of the Spirit.’ Dear one, be one of the Lord’s aspen leaves; don’t wait for great strong blasts, but yield to the least whisper from Him of ‘this is the way, walk ye in it.’ And now, expect great things! You don’t know what He is going to astonish you with. ‘Open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.’ Go to work for Him at once, put your little sickle in, and see if the Lord does not make the sheaves fall before it! Don’t hold back from letting Him use you. Your blessing will probably, if you are quite faithful with it, result in fresh blessing all around you to those who have been blessed already, and who knows what to those who do not yet know the fulness of the blessing! Keep trusting the Lord Jesus, or ratg, and draw every word from Him; ask Him always, all day long, what to do, what to say. Pray this prayer: ‘Lord, take my lips and SPEAK through them; take my mind and THINK through it; take my HEART and set it on fire!” P.S. Do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
