"A Surrendered Life has Power"
“Quit quarreling with God! Agree with Him and you’ll have peace at last! His favor will surround you if you only admit that you were wrong.” Job 22: 21 LB
The Bible is very clear about a benefit you receive when you worship God through surrender: “Agree with me and you’ll have peace! His favor will surround you if you will only admit that you were wrong.” Job 22: 21
Oddly enough, in surrendering you really begin to live the life God intended for you and you desire. It’s the giving up your life so that you can have the life God planned for you that gives you the peace.
In surrender you are liberated. But what are you liberated from? You are liberated from self-preoccupation. When you offer your life to God it’s no longer all about you. God is able to use a surrendered life in great ways.
Do you remember when Gabriel came to Mary and told her that she was going to have a baby? Why would God choose this little, insignificant woman to bring His child into this world?
Listen to her response to Gabriel’s news, “I am the Lord’s servant! Let it happen as you have said.” Luke 1: 38 CEV
God knew what Mary was going to say. He used her to bring the Savior of the world to itself. What will God enable you to do when you surrender your life to Him?
Peace in the Lord,
