There is a verse that must be truly believed to be able to go on in our consecration song. “Him that comes to Me I will in no wise cast out.” If we have been given the desire from the heart to say, “take my life Lord” Can he go against his Word?
Havergal points out that conversion and consecration might be a dazzling simultaneous experience, but she points out that this is not often times the experience. It is more of a gradual one. As we walk and experience the goodness of the Master, our desire to be bound not in law but in love spurs us on in our consecration. It is “founded on experience and love.”
It is a done deal. If God has placed in you the desire to give your life, and you have indeed entrusted Him with it, then go on praising because He has heard and He has taken your life, your will, your all, not because of anything in and of yourself but because God is true to His Word!
“He that comes to Me I will in no wise cast out.”
