Surrender (3) Февраль 16, 2011

Posted by Lee Goodall in Today's Devotional.

»…Because you say so, I will…» Luke 5:5

One of the great leaders of the twentieth century was Bill Bright, founder of the Campus Crusade. Through the ‘Four Spiritual Laws’ tract and the Jesus film (seen by over four billion), more than 150 million people were won to Christ. When asked why God had used him so effectively, Bill replied, ‘When I was a young man I made a contract with God. I literally wrote it out and signed my name at the bottom. It said, «From this day forward I am a slave of Jesus Christ».’ Picture yourself chained like a slave to an oar, rowing to the drumbeat of a galley master until the day you die — that’s surrender! (Personally I don’t think this is a good example. There’s no choice about surrender here). Surrender isn’t just the best way to live — it’s the only way! All other approaches lead to frustration. The Bible calls surrender ‘…your reasonable service’ (Romans 12:1 KJV). Your wisest moments will always be those when you say yes to God. Sometimes it takes years, but eventually you discover that the greatest hindrance to God’s blessing in your life is you. You cannot fulfil His purposes while you’re focusing only on your own plans and self-interest. If God is going to do His deepest work in you, it will begin with surrender. So give it all to God: your past regrets, your present problems, your future ambitions, your fears, your dreams, your weaknesses, your habits, your hurts and hang-ups. Put Jesus in the driver’s seat, and take your hands off the wheel. Don’t be afraid; nothing that is under His control can ever be out of control. Surrendered to Christ, you can handle anything life throws at you.
