My Utmost For His Highest : "Neck Or Nothing"

April 17, 2012

Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt
his fisher's coat unto him ... and did cast himself into
the sea.
John 21:7
Have you ever had a crisis in which you deliberately and emphatically
and recklessly abandoned everything? It is a crisis of will. You may
come up to it many times externally, but it amounts to nothing. The
real deep crisis of abandonment is reached internally, not
externally. The giving up of external things may be an indication of
being in total bondage.
Have you deliberately committed your will to Jesus Christ? It is a
transaction of will, not of emotion; the emotion is simply the
gilt-edge of the transaction. If you allow emotion first, you will
never make the transaction. Do not ask God what the transaction is to
be, but make it in regard to the thing you do see, either in the
shallow or the profound place.
If you have heard Jesus Christ's voice on the billows, let your
convictions go to the winds, let your consistency go to the winds,
but maintain your relationship to Him.
