The Secret of Surrender

Light shining through clouds

We have heard the modern expression, “Don’t fight it-it’s bigger than both of us.” Those who are meek do not fight back at life. They learn the secret of surrender, or yielding to God. He then fights for us! Instead of filling your mind with resentments, abusing your body by sinful diversion, and damaging your soul by willfulness, humbly give all over to God. Your conflicts will disappear and your inner tensions will vanish into thin air. Then your life will begin to count for something. You will have the feeling of belonging to life. Boredom will melt away, and you will become vibrant with hope and expectation. Because you are meekly yielded, you will begin to “inherit the earth” of good things, which God holds in store for all who trust Him with their all.

Prayer for the day

Let me yield to You this day, Father, all my innermost thoughts. I cannot hide from You.

    If you seem to be running around in circles, never moving forward in life, perhaps you should quit trying to do it on your own. Not only will you never succeed, you will most likely become worse off. A much wiser choice is to surrender it all to Christ. Admit that your efforts at a good life are hopeless without him in it. He will gladly help you pick up the pieces and guide you on the right path to peace and joy with him forever.
