…I claimed the gift of the Holy Spirit in dogged committal on Luke 11:13. I had no vision
of heaven or of angels, I had nothing. I was as dry and empty as ever, no power or realization of God, no witness of the Holy Spirit. Then I was asked to speak at a meeting, and forty souls came out to the front. Did I praise God? No, I was terrified and left them to the workers, and went to Mr. MacGregor (a friend) and told him what had happened, and he said: ‘Don’t you remember claiming the Holy Spirit as a gift on the word of Jesus, and that He said: “Ye shall receive power…? his is the power from on high.” Then like a flash something happened inside me, and I saw that I had been wanting power in my own hand, so to speak, that I might say — look what I have by putting my all on the altar.
If the four previous years had been hell on earth, these five years have truly been heaven on
earth. Glory be to God, the last aching abyss of the human heart is filled to overflowing with the love of God. Love is the beginning, love is the middle and love is the end. After He comes in, all you see is “Jesus only, Jesus ever.”
…It is no wonder that I talk so much about an altered disposition: God altered mine; I was there when He did it….
