What does ultimate and complete surrender to the Lord actually look like?… Oh what an amazing thing this could be if we could actually reach and achieve this level of surrender. Of course we can do all things through the love and help and the strength of our loving Father… When we take our selves out of the equation, and completely understand that apart from God we can do nothing… Then we can begin to walk in complete surrender!
When we pray, if we truly know and fully understand that God could change things whenever He wanted to, therefore, after praying we should give it no further thought… That's what complete surrender looks like.
If we really knew and understood that when we leave our prayer requests with God, the One who causes all things to be, the One in whom all things are possible,… Then we can walk confidently knowing that God's got our prayers and the answers to them… That He purposefully inclines his ear to hear us ..and if we know He hears us, and we know that apart from Him we can do nothing… Then if we understand this and completely surrender all things to Him… Why would we ever worry?
We cannot do anything unless God enables us… So we can, and should always ask God to help us receive more sufficient strength so that we can be completely surrendering all things to the Lord.
If we relate to God in this greatest simplicity, child like faith, and having a knowledge of his grace and give it all to God in real time by praying continually and about all things… Then we can walk in God's perfect and ultimate peace!
Our whole lives should be continual relationships with God… No matter what we're doing… Do it all for the Lord… Do things with the spirit of excellence through the lens of God's perfect love. By being in a complete, and communal relationship with our Heavenly Father, then we can go about our days knowing who He is and feeling His joy and His peace even in the most mundane of things.
If we think that we have to follow some rules or do things right or we've sinned too much, then we are ultimately allowing a religious spirit to rule over us and to stop us from believing that God truly loves us unconditionally.
We must completely recognize that God is always present, His assistance will never fail us and He is never not with us… We must understand His will.. seek that! We can offer everything to Him before we do it ...and give Him thanks after we have finished.. this is the communion we should have with our loving Father… our days should be naturally, supernatural… Because we have the Holy Spirit living in us… We have a constant guide to teach us the ways to go and how to do all things by Grace!
Praise, worship, and continued prayer purely for the love of God not because we need something!
When we can walk in this kind of surrender… we will walk in peace! In difficult times we need only to turn immediately to Christ and ask for his grace to cover over our concerns… This can divert us from worry to peace just by understanding the awareness of God…
That unending Grace can give us strength to bear whatever we are facing, therefore we should fear nothing knowing that God is never not available to us and He will never leave us or for sake us…
God would never deceive us… and when our souls are perfectly surrendered to Him and when we are committed to endure all things for His sake… God will surely and wholeheartedly supply his absolute love, grace, and sufficiency to cover over us in every situation…
When we fail to surrender and we walk in worry and fear… We are essentially walking void of understanding God's love for us…
Many times we fail to accept this love because we cannot accept the fact that ALL of our sins have been forgiven by the power of the blood of Jesus!
When we can fully understand this, we are free to seek only to love Him with all our hearts and then we can take comfort in the fact that He gives us the greatest grace through this greatest surrender… These are powerful signs of his great mercy…
God is worried about nothing, fears nothing...And if we are to be seated in heavenly places with Jesus at the right hand of our Father accompanied by the complete intercession of Jesus… Then are not fear and worry just simply lies that are coming from the absence of receiving the complete love of God?
We mustn't beat ourselves up when we sin… But we must repent and turn away and then know that God has given us a grace to walk freely… It's through this love and grace that we receive that makes us want to do better, that makes us want to faithfully reject every thought that leads to sin and to live wholeheartedly for God.
The trust we put in God completely and fully honor Him greatly and ultimately draws down great blessings.
Let's walk with a complete awareness and a fresh remembrance that God is always present.. let's let his presence consume us… Let's keep our eyes completely focused on the love and the power of Jesus Christ… Therefore we should fear nothing!
All things are possible to those who believe.. they are much less difficult to those who hope . And they are easier to those who love. And they are absolutely easiest to those who persevere in the practice of all of these virtues!
And let God's grace take you to new levels in the understanding of his perfect love… God bless you all❤️
“If you would direct your heart right
And spread out your hand to Him,
and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.
I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.
