We need to realize that God can use us for His purpose today if we are absolutely consecrated to Him. He used Samuel, David, Daniel, and many others for His purpose – and today God is looking for many like them who voluntarily consecrate themselves to Him for what He intends to do in this age.
Daniel and his companions were absolutely consecrated to God even from their youth, and they separated themselves unto God from an age that followed Satan (see Dan. 1:4-8; 5:12, 22; 6:10).

Today God is looking for some, those who are voluntarily consecrated to Him, some that He may use to change this age. No matter how young or how old we are, we can stand up against the tide of this age as an anti-testimony, just as Antipas did in the church in Pergamos.
