Absolute Surrender, and Other Addresses, by Andrew Murray.
And Ben-hadad the king of Syria gathered all his host together: and there were thirty and two kings with him, and horses, and chariots: and he went up and besieged Samaria, and warred against it. And he sent messengers to Ahab king of Israel into the city, and said unto him, Thus saith Ben-hadad, They silver and they gold is mine, they wives also and thy children, even the goodliest, are mine. And the king of Israel answered and said, My lord, O king, according to they saying, I am thine and all that I have. 1 Kings 20:1-4
What Ben Hadad asked was absolute surrender; and what Ahab gave was what was asked of him-absolute surrender. I want to use these words: My lord, O king, according to they saying, I am thine, and all that I have, as the words of absolute surrender with which every child of God ought to yield himself to his Father. We have heard it before, but we need to hear it very definitely — the condition of God’s blessing is absolute surrender of all into His hands. Praise God! If our hearts are willing for that, there is no end to what God will do for us, and to the blessing God will bestow.
