So, how do we learn how NOT to control? As I’ve mentioned several times over the last few weeks, it starts with the self-awareness that we are filled with pride and arrogance and are trained by this world to take control of our environment and circumstances. The key to freedom from the stress of control is full surrender. Surrender sounds like such a defeated word. It sounds like we gave up or gave in and have a “whatever” attitude, when in fact, it takes more courage to surrender to God than it does to control.
James 4:7 (NLT)
7 So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
So, What… for This Week?
What Does It Mean To Surrender To God? Surrendering to God means letting go of our plans, and letting God have His way in every aspect of our lives, allowing Him to guide our steps and direct our decisions. We are not meant to keep certain parts back but surrender our whole life to Him in an act of obedience and complete trust.
