Psalm 110:3 Your people will offer themselves willingly / In the day of Your warfare, / In the splendor of their consecration. / Your young men will be to You / Like the dew from the womb of the dawn.
God NEEDS us. How does that sound? We might be familiar with the fact that we need Him; however, it is important for us to note that He is actually in need of us. Doesn’t that sound so important? He needs us, He cannot do what He wants without us. Young people, the Lord needs you. Yes you! Today, He is eagerly waiting for us to give ourselves willingly to Him. This phrase, “willingly giving ourselves to Him’, may simply be a ringing phrase in the back of our mind and not be of much meaning to us.
We need to open our hearts and truly see Him and His desire for this age. What is His desire? His desire is still the same as it has always been from the beginning. He wants to gain His bride; His counterpart. For this to be fulfilled, many ages have passed, many persons have been used by Him, much time has gone and yet, we are still here today.
Why are we still here today? We are still here today because one last age needs to be ended. It has not been ended yet because no one has been faithful enough to give themselves willingly to Him. Not one group of people on this earth has been found who would give their whole being and their entire life to Him. There is no way for Him to use us if we do not allow Him. And yet we say that we do not want to miss out on the most important moves of the universe, throughout all of ancient history.
The greatest event of history has not happened yet – but it will happen! Don’t you want to be a part of the greatest dispensational move in the entire universe? Nothing compares to this. For this, we MUST give ourselves without reluctance. We must desire for Him to use us so readily. We cannot be those who hold back on things of our own. We cannot be those who plan our future and set out what to do with our life.
We simply need to realise the importance of giving up everything we have ever hoped for and stop striving to make our lives worth our existence. We need to set all else aside, and start anew with God’s goal in view. We need to do everything for the fulfillment of what He wants to do. So many who have gone before us have left us a pattern of how they willingly gave themselves for the purpose of being useful to Him.
Today is the day; right now is the time to present yourselves as a willing sacrifice to Him. How is He able to make us useful if we are not open to Him? He needs to be able to impart Himself into us so that we can learn what’s on His heart. No Egyptian food, no golden calf, no murmuring, no hard labour, no entertainment, no money can impart this Christ into us. Only Christ can dispense Christ into us.
And where is this Christ? He is in the Word, He is in the ministry, He is in the church, He is with the saints. He is all around us; so available. Yet, what are we going to choose? The world and its entertainment is just as available to us. Are we going to miss this opportunity to be a part of the most phenomenal move?
What are we going to miss it to? Are we going to miss it to possessing temporary happiness, entertainment, and holding on to our dreams? How many days can we afford to miss? We have enough time to get ready for Him. We have enough time to become useful to Him but we do not have time to waste. He needs us – but if we waste our time, He cannot do anything. He depends on us. He is waiting for ONE people that crazily fall in love with Him and occupy themselves solely with His purpose.
And I can testify that He is gaining this group of people right now! All over the world, there are young ones who have consecrated themselves to do the will of God, who are willing to be thoroughly used for His purpose. We need to be those who voluntarily consecrate ourselves to Him.
Acts 20:24 But I consider my life of no account as if precious to myself, in order that I may finish my course and the ministry which I have received from the Lord Jesus to solemnly testify of the gospel of the grace of God.
