When we go through our existence within a life of difficulties, but have been chosen for a purpose, we just accept whatever our circumstance may be while dying to our-self as a self sacrifice for God's use.

DYING TO SELF

When you are neglected, or purposely seen as non-existent nothingness, and you don't feel pain or hurt with the insult or the oversight, but your heart is happy, being counted worthy to suffer for Christ.

THAT IS DYING TO SELF

When your good is evil spoken of, when your wishes are crossed, your advice disregarded, your opinions ridiculed, and you refuse to let anger rise in your heart, or even defend yourself, but take it all in patient, loving silence.

THAT IS DYING TO SELF

When you patiently bear any disorder or annoyance while standing face-to- face in a world of people lacking proper actions with spiritual insensibility-and endure it as Jesus endured.

THAT IS DYING TO SELF

When you just accept your way life with thanks to God no matter how many difficulties and hardships you have had to live with through many years in health mind and body.

THAT IS DYING TO SELF

When you can see others prosper and have their needs met and feel no envy, nor question God, while your own needs are far greater and in desperate circumstances.

THAT IS DYING TO SELF

When you can receive spiritual correction according to the words of God from one of less stature than yourself and can humbly submit inwardly as well as outwardly, finding no rebellion or resentment rising up within your heart.

THAT IS DYING TO SELF

When you have totally submitted your entire life to God as a living sacrifice for His use and to please Him with absolutely no life of your own while knowing that you are a sinner and can do nothing without Him.

THAT IS DYING TO SELF

When through years and years of submission to God we have accomplished eleven free websites, 413 posts and a published book while living in extreme hardships with no genuine brothers and sisters anywhere with care or compassion, yet loving them regardless because they know not what they do;

THAT IS DYING TO SELF

If God has called you to be really like Jesus, He will draw you into a life of crucifixion and humility, and put upon you such demands of obedience, that you will not be able to follow other people, or measure yourself by other Christians, and in many ways He will seem to let other people do things which He will not let you do.

Other Christians and ministers, who seem very religious and useful, may push themselves, pull wires, and work schemes to carry out their plans, but you cannot do it, and if you attempt it, you will meet with such failure and rebuke from the Lord as to make you sorely penitent.

Others may boast of themselves, of their work, of their successes, of their writings, but the Holy Spirit will not allow you to do any such thing, and if you begin it, He will lead you into some deep mortification that will make you despise yourself and all your good works; and when we have no success, yet work a work consistently, its devotion to only God.

Others may be allowed to succeed in making money, or may have a legacy left to them, but it is likely God will keep you poor, because He wants you to have something far better than gold, namely, a helpless dependence upon Him, that He may have the privilege of supplying your needs day by day out of an unseen treasury.

The lord may let others be honored and put forward, and keep you hidden in obscurity, because He wants to produce some choice, fragrant fruit for His coming glory, which can only be produced in the shade. He may let others be great, but keep you small. He may let others do a work for Him and get the credit for it, but He will make you work and toil on without knowing how much you are doing; and then to make your work still more precious, He may let others get credit for the work which you have done, and thus make your reward ten times greater when Jesus comes.

The Holy Spirit will put a strict watch over you, with a jealous love, and will rebuke you for little words and feelings or for wasting your time, which other Christians never feel distressed over. So make up your mind that God is an infinite Sovereign and has a right to do as He pleases with His own. He may not explain to you a thousand things which puzzle your reason in His dealings with you, but if you absolutely sell yourself to be his love slave, He will wrap you up in a jealous love, and bestow upon you many blessings which come only to those who are in the inner circle.

Settle it forever, then, that you are to deal directly with the Holy Spirit, and that He must have the right to tie your tongue, or chain your hand, or close your eyes, in ways that He does not seem to use with others. Now, when you are so possessed with the living God that you are, in your secret heart, pleased and delighted over this peculiar, personal, private, jealous guardianship and management of the Holy Spirit over your life, you will have found the vestibule leading to the secret place of the Most High.

Truth or consequences with the choice being only yours to make.
