Prove Me Now ..... A Spiritual Personal Journal #17
This last week I received the rest of William C. Burns' papers. There were quite a few hand written notes of his included. One note that I was searching for ....revealed the information I was hoping he would reveal!!! God used him for years worth of revivals in Scotland, and China. Here is the information of wealth he reveals:
"I was rejoiced to hear that several prayer meetings have been formed among the people. In holding these I would encourage them to persevere, always remembering that the Lord hath said, not only "where two or three are gathered together, there am I in the midst of them," but also when thou prayest enter into thy closet, and pray to thy Father who is in secret. Public religion, without closet fellowship with God, is hypocrisy, which may deceive the world and deceive the soul itself, but cannot deceive a heart-searching God. Oh! let the dear people be much in secret prayer and meditation on the Lord's word, if they would be with Jesus and be like him."
Writing the Complete Works of William C. Burns has given me a wealth of spiritual insights that have never been published from this man yet. What a wonder of spiritual practices and blessings!
The secret is spelt out for all to see what he did and why God used him to bring millions to Christ!
