12.27.20 – Daily Dose of Worship. A study on prayer. Part 41. Battle.

DEVOTION: “For it is not so much of our time and so much of our attention that God demands; it is not even all our time and all our attention: it is ourselves.” (Pg 101)

Surrender.

Once again this word rises to the surface.

It’s such a stern and wonderful reminder here. We can give so much of our time and effort but God is looking for us, not the things we do.

All of our efforts are wonderful but at the end of the day. It’s us. He wants us.

Total surrender. For us to die to self. Live for Christ.

We must make room for Him in all of us. In all our ways and all our days. In every moment and every mishap. When we want Him there and when we don’t want Him there. In all of it.

It’s a daily battle of surrender. A battle that’s not ours to fight. A battle that we must surrender. There is no heroic fight that will take place here…

Just a humble surrender of it all to Jesus.

    Dear heavenly father protect me this day as I struggle each day away from my family. Strengthen me and lift up my family. I know it’s hard, but we will prevail thru the battle of being away from each other. Remind me that this is a good thing and it is only temporary. God help March come quickly and help me get thru each and every day so that I may return to my family and can excel in my career. I put my trust in you. Remind me to trust in your ways. Amen

    This devotion, reminds me of something I have been thinking and praying about all week. And it too is all about our continual surrender. Thinking we would never turn away from Jesus, never be unfaithful. We , I, like to think that i would always be faithful, even in and when enduring stressful and traumatic events in life , happen, or have happened. But I realize that is only pride speaking. Just as I was unable to save myself, I am unable to ” keep myself” as well. It brings us back to the deceitfulness of our own hearts. I am” kept” only, by the grace and love and mercy of Jesus , every moment of every day. My part is to surrender all, and die to all , that comes from , not always ” out there” , the world, the flesh , the devil, we like to think, but what comes from within. “Father, rescue me “…………………………………
