I love how I know can now see clearly the truth of Jesus’ teaching when we surrender, that His power comes. Surrender is not a point of weakness but of strength.. Throughout the Bible we read that when a person finally stops trying to do things their way or chooses to surrender their will to God’s, that God steps in with power and perfection of His way to bring about victory and great blessings on His children.
Lord, I give my life to you; my God, I trust you…~ Psalm 25:1–2
Even Jesus. Yes, even Jesus wanted to be sure that we saw through His example that our weakness is not a sign of defeat but, in fact, the place where Satan had better run. Luke 22 graphically relates the humanness of Jesus as He cries out to God about what is to come. As the bloody sweat pours from His body, Jesus surrenders to God’s will. Jesus shows us that surrender may not come easily; it may not come initially with contentment but God is faithful to give me the courage and peace I need.
Sometimes “I trust You” is all that we can say. Sometimes what we are going through makes no sense and we cannot see how it will end, if ever, but just like David God asks the same of us, and this takes faith. We are choosing to take the only life we have and say, “Here, God, I know You gave me this life so I am giving it back, trusting that You have a plan for me. You know best and I trust You.” That is what David did. He gave his life to God and said, “I trust in you, my God.”All I know, based on my relationship with the Lord, is that I can trust Him. He has brought me through before and He will do it again.Today, do the same. Choose to trust God with your life. He created you and has a plan for your life. Trust Him.
Have a wonderful day as you choose to trust God with your life.
