Excerpt from A Full History of the Wonderful Career of Moody and Sankey: In Great Britain and America, Embracing, Also, the Best Portion of Mr. Moody's Sermons, as Preached in This Country and Abroad, Mr. Sankey's Addresses and Some of His Songs, With Everything of Interest Connected With the Work In the Lord's kingdom law prevails, and men know how to labor effectively; but there are also set times to favor Zion, critical epochs, a combination of occurrences which the right men see and take advantage Of, always under the guidance of Divine Providence and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and thus bring to pass notable results which fill the world with wonder, and extend the Redeemer's sway over human hearts. In the case Of Mr. Moody there existed an Opportunity in the new city of Chicago, and among the neglected foreigners and abandoned classes, where he began his mission enterprise; a necessity for such service as he was able to render and procure. He saw and seized the Opportunity, and achieved a magnificent triumph, and a preparation for higher and wider fields. Thus God emphasizes again the importance of doing well the duty that lies next to one's hand, if a call is expected to loftier heights and more conspicuous victories.
