Who knows or remembers that very famous song we all have probably sang; ” All to Jesus I surrender,… I will ever Love and Trust Him, in His presence daily live. I surrender all, ….. all to Thee my Blessed Saviour, I surrender all.”
Sounding very familiar right about now? Yes. Many of us have sang this song and most likely with good intentions as we thought we meant it 100% only to find ourselves in a place where we are holding back from God. Holding back our hopes, dreams, troubles, matters of the heart, mind and soul and possibly our future; in a bid to do it all by ourselves. Sometimes it is even in moments of anger, when we feel like life has let us down or man has let us down and we start blaming God. The thing is, God loves you and will never leave you, let you down, nor forsake you
Have you ever heard the saying “No man is an island?” Believe me, no matter how well educated and knowledgeable you are without God everything is meaningless. You can never do it on your own, when you try to, you will always find that you are getting it wrong somewhere and botching things up. The thing is that God is always ready and waiting (I call Him a gentle redeemer) because he never forces Himself on us but if you need Him he is always right there and on time.
Today, all you have to do is to open up your heart and invite God to take all of you, your troubles and fill you with His Holy fire.
Say this little prayer;
Father, I come before you just as I am, I lay me at your feet. This is a trying time for me right now and nothing seems to be in alignment with your will or working out in my life and I feel far from you. I know that I need You. I need your mercy, love and grace today. I truly surrender all I am, all I have, and all I ever hope to be to you God. You’re an all sufficient God, covenant making and covenant keeping God. I trust that You hold my world in your hands and I am forever safe in you. In Jesus’ name, amen.
