Surrender…what does that really look like? What does it really mean?
Complete, total and utter surrender…a giving up of who WE are, what WE have, what WE want.
We can deceive ourselves very easily and make what WE want so big, overpowering and controlling in our lives that we shut out what YHVH is trying to show us.
Overcoming ourselves is the greatest challenge we face and it is easy for us to head down a wrong road and become convinced of what we are doing, when we believe that our cause is righteous…OUR cause.
Are you truly listening to Abba, or are you hearing what YOU want to hear?
How much are you willing to lay down and sacrifice, to surrender yourself to YHVH? Even in our sacrifice, we MUST be in complete surrender to Him. We must allow Him to show us what needs to be removed, what needs to be laid down and what needs to be given up.
We can’t really be within His will, if we have not sacrificed ALL to Him. The things YOU want, must be laid on the altar and surrendered. Do you want His will to be done in your life, or do you want your will to be done and to say that it is His?
To surrender completely, fully and without reservation is to empty yourself…and then allow yourself to be filled up with Him. His wants, His desires, His way, His will…that IS surrender.
1 I call upon you, therefore, brothers, through the compassion of Elohim, to present your bodies a living offering – set-apart, well-pleasing to Elohim – your reasonable worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you prove what is that good and well-pleasing and perfect desire of Elohim.
It is MORE than just words…much, MUCH more.
Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return.
