Surrender

Bible Verse: Psalms 119:2

Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.

Surrender

After weeks of twisting and turning, periods of discontentment, heated “discussions” with the Lord, and formulation of Plan B, I have finally decided to listen, wave the white flag, and surrender.

When we find ourselves in situations not to our liking, it is human nature to want to change them. It takes practiced faith and trust in God not to move before He says move. Yet, often after we’ve customarily asked Him for guidance, we covertly take up the cause once again, trying to fashion our lives the way we want them to be. We tell God we’re leaving the situation in His hands, but in the background we’ve got our own plan of action mapped out and ready to execute.

The funny thing was that I thought I had given Him everything. I had convinced myself the troubled feelings were just because it was unfamiliar territory. I didn’t really think there were elements that I was still holding on to. Eventually I realized that my uneasiness came because the Spirit was telling me that I was getting in the way of what God wanted to do for me.

Letting go and letting God is unfamiliar territory. Believe me, it’s hard. However, it gets easier as we trust Him with more and more of our lives. When God tells us to commit our way unto Him and not lean on our own understanding, He means what He says. Only as we completely surrender every aspect and nuance of our life will we truly be blessed and at peace.

Trust Him today. Surrender your all to Him. He has begun a marvellous work in you which He will complete.
