Surrender. It’s not an easy word to say let alone put into action. In the context of war for instance, to surrender, would mean to “give up”, “give in” to the opponent. It’s like saying I can’t go on any longer for I am outnumbered, out skilled and the odds are not in my favor. But when it comes to God and surrendering to His will, the word takes on a whole other meaning. To surrender to Him means that you have “accepted” not “resigned” to the fact that God knows what’s best for your life. You are handing the keys to the one who has been driving for years, He knows the potholes, He knows when the road curves, where the bridge is out, what path leads to destruction and which path leads to blessing. That is not to say the road may not be bumpy and that doors may not always open right away but through it all you have someone to join you on the ride. In order to accomplish this feat one must first add commitment to this recipe; make a decision that God knows what’s best for your life and stand firm. Next stir in some faith and perseverance believing and pressing forward knowing that God wants only the best for you, Psalm 37:4, “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Throw in cupfuls of Jesus and soon enough you will see your life unfold in ways that go beyond anything you could ever imagine in your mind.
Serves those ready to accept that God loves us and desires only but the best for our lives.
