DEVOTION: “God has you on this earth for the purpose of bringing out His character in you. He wants to destroy the power of the Devil. He wants to move you so that in the face of difficulties and hardships, you will praise the Lord. “Count it all joy” (James 1:2). You have to take a leap today; you have to leap into the promises. You have to believe that God never fails you; you have to believe it is impossible for God to break His word. He is from “everlasting to everlasting”. (Psalm 90:2) (pg 190)
He wants to move you so that in the face of difficulties and hardships, you will praise the Lord.
So…it all comes down to surrender. Surrendering to the truth that:
God never fails us.
It’s impossible for God to break His word.
That He is everlasting.
Surrendering to the truth and the realization that, amidst our egos and our desires to make things conform to the way that we think they should be….surrender.
Surrender to our own pride so that we can give God complete control. Control over it all.
Difficult..oh yeah. Not easy at all. But…Jesus.
PRAYER: Today, pray for surrender. Surrender to the plan that God has for you.
