Give yourself to God …. surrender your whole being to him to be used for righteous purpose Romans 6:13
There are three barriers that block our total surrender to God: fear, pride and confusion
Can I trust God? Trust is an essential ingredient to surrender. You want surrender to God unless you trust him, but you can’t trust him until you know him better.
How do you know God love you? He gives you many evidences: God says he loves you; you’re never out of his sight; he cares about every detail of your life; he gave you the capacity to enjoy all kinds of pleasure; he has good plans for your life, he forgives you; and he is lovingly patient with you. God loves you infinitely more than you can imagine. The greatest expression of this is the sacrifice of God’s son for you: fear, pride and confusion
What it means to surrender? Surrendering to God is not passive resignation, fatalism, or an excuse for laziness. Surrendering is best demonstrated in obedeince. You say “yes, Lord” to what ever he ask you. to say “no, Lord” is to speak contradiction. Surrender is best demonstrated in obedience and trust.
The blessing of surrender. First, you experience peace. Next, you experience freedom, Third, you experience God’s power in your life.
If you don’t surrender to Christ you surrender to chaos- E. Stanley Jones
The best way to live. Surrender is not the best way to live; its the only way to live. Nothing else works.
Sometimes it takes years but eventually you discover that the greatest hinderance to God’s blessing in your life is not others it is yourself.
