Fully Surrender

military man reading Bible

Faith has legs . . . I heard about a man some years ago who was rolling a wheelbarrow back and forth on a tightrope across Niagara River. Thousands of people were shouting him on. He put a 200-pound sack of dirt in the wheelbarrow and rolled it over, and then he rolled it back. He turned to the crowd and asked, “How many of you believe that I can roll a man across?” Everybody shouted! One man in the front row was very excited in his professed belief. The man pointed to this excited professor and said, “You’re next!” You couldn’t see that man for dust! He didn’t actually believe it. He thought he believed it—but he was not willing to get in the wheelbarrow. Just so with Christ. Many people say they believe on Him, they say they follow Him. But they never have stepped into the wheelbarrow. They actually never have committed and surrendered themselves wholly, 100 percent to Christ.

Prayer for the day

Loving Lord Jesus, it was only when I surrendered everything to You that I knew the ultimate joy and peace that had always escaped me.

    This is a great reflection and perspective about how we can say we believe completely, but are we ready to get into the wheelbarrow?? I needed to think about this today, this came exactly when I needed it! This is the answer to my morning prayer, that God will give me clear direction on what I need to do to turn the negative events in my life today in a new direction! Thank you!!

    Please Lord, help me find thy path for my life to serve You. Help me to fully surrender to Your will. I know that in the past I have often fallen away from You, and I long to make the commitment that would please you and allow me to find the peace and joy that comes with serving You and others. Please let me find my place within the wheelbarrow of thy covenant, that I might be carried across to You eternally. Please bless this ministry and all those who follow these devotionals, and add their heartfelt comments. Thank you all…Amen.
