There is great peace in complete surrender to YHVH. To give everything up to Him completely without holding anything back brings a calm and a release from worry and anxiety. He is waiting to loose our bonds, but we must be willing to surrender them. We hold onto the very things that keep us enslaved, when it IS His desire that we be free. True freedom…do we really know what that means?
We all suffer to varying degrees in this physical life and there are many challenges to be faced. Even those who appear to have everything, still have affliction and there are things that they must overcome. We are here to learn and grow into the people that YHVH desires for us to be.
One of the greatest lessons that we MUST learn from this physical life is that it is VERY temporary and that there is a much bigger purpose and plan being worked out here. The sacrifice that YHVH has wanted all along from each of us, is ourselves…to give ourselves up to Him in complete and total surrender, trusting and relying on Him for ALL things.
It is easy to say and MUCH harder to do. Our flesh does NOT surrender easily…it fights and resists giving in and giving up. We want control and in our blindness we seek to satisfy the wants and needs of our flesh. Our Abba has placed a great choice before us and He tells us to choose life!
To truly know life, is to surrender it to Him…we MUST lose our lives to find life!
The greatest tests are yet to come. Will we truly surrender ourselves to Him and seek His Will in all things? Will we be ready to follow whenever and wherever He takes us? Many have thought that they were…
6 Do not worry at all, but in every [matter], by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to Elohim. 7 And the peace of Elohim, which surpasses all understanding, shall guard your hearts and minds through Messiah יהושע.
Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return.
