WHAT IN YOUR LIFE KEEPS YOU FROM DOING ALL OF GOD'S WILL?
Is it spiritual, moral, physical, mental, what is it? Maybe you have
fought the fight with God about complete surrender as did Judson W. Van De Venter, or yours is the fight of letting Christ live out through you day by day. Either one is God defying! God has people who He needs you to influence.
Who is it that if you surrender to do God's will, He has waiting for you to influence and show them God's will for their life.
For years, Judson fought God about full time service. Finally, he fell to his knees and said, "Lord, if you want me to give my full time to Your work, I'll do it, I Surrender all to Thee." Those words echo in his heart and mind for years and he finally wrote the hymn.
Later in his life he moved to Tampa and began to teach hymnology at Florida Bible Institue. He also spoke at the chaple where a student always set wide eyed listening to him.
This student latter wrote, "One of the evangelist who influenced my early preaching was also a hymnist who wrote, I Surrender All", the Rev. J. W. Van De Venter. He was a regular vistor at the Florida Bible Institue in the late 1930's. We students loved this kind, deeply spiritual gentleman who often gathered us in his winter home for an evening of fellowship and singing."
How would you like to influence the next Billy Graham? Surrender all and do what God had planned for time began and only you can do!!!
