When D.L. Moody was a young man, he heard someone say that something wonderful would be worked out on this earth if a man would offer himself fully to God, to be unreservedly possessed and occupied by Him. When he heard this word, he immediately responded to it by giving himself fully to the Lord. Through such a consecration at a young age, D.L. Moody became one of the most prevailing evangelist in the history of the church, being personally responsible for the salvation of millions of people around the turn of the 20th century. I hope that we would take this fellowship and tell the Lord:
Lord, I thank You that I am still young. I do not want there to be anything set, settled, or occupied with me. I want to be fully open to You for Your new move on this earth. Lord, I give myself to You. Come in and occupy, take, and possess me for Your up-to-date move on this earth.
