I despise the thought of giving up or giving in to anything or anyone. It makes one seem weak to do so. However, after reading Day 10 of this 40 day journey I’m on…for the love of God, I must surrender myself to Him.
Surrendering sounds like we’re giving up everything but in reality we’re setting ourselves up for victory. Surrendering is the natural response we should have to God’s love and mercy towards us. We should desire daily to give ourselves away.
Well, the more we let go and let God use us, the more we discover who we truly are and what we’re truly meant to be here for. The more we give ourselves away, the more our personality matches God’s personality which should be the ultimate goal of our lives anyway--to be like Him. We must stop fighting with God so much about how we want to live our lives. If we agree with what His Word says, we will find peace and things in our life will start to go well.
The question is…
Do we trust Him enough to surrender completely? Remember, if we don’t surrender to Christ now, we’ll surrender to chaos eventually. What will you decide to do?
