~ I 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 eternal life.
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.
