God’s program of instruction which is grounded in faith [and requires surrendering the entire self to God in absolute trust and confidence].1 Timothy 1:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
I surrender to Jehovah completely. He does not accept anything else. That is the reason I love that song:”I surrender all”. It is one of the anthems of my life.
It has taken me decades to learn to trust Jehovah in every aspect of my life.
There has been so many times He has asked (Jehovah never demands anything of His children. He is too much of a gentleman to do that) to do things that seemed totally absurd to me. When I surrendered my will unto His, He accomplished amazing things in my life and through my life.
There were so many times I was completely convinced in a certain course of action but He asked me not to take it. It seemed insane not to disobey Him and go my own way using my limited wisdom. Indeed many mocked me for obeying a make believe God in the sky. In retrospect I am glad to have obeyed Him because those that did take that way ended up in total disaster.
Surrender is not an act of bravery but an act of trust and love unto He who loves us so much more that we could ever love Him back.
My life is a testimony that He never leads us the wrong way nor does not warn us of the wrong trail to travel down in life. He has a one hundred percent success rate. Now that is the type of adviser I wisely listen to and obey.
“Surrender is deeply misunderstood as an act of weakness. Surrender is the bravest and most lucid thing a human ever does, and that’s why it’s so precious to the Divine.” -Andrew Harvey
Prayer: I surrender body, spirit and mind totally unto You Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) as the only voice I shall follow in every aspect of my life. This is done in the knowledge that because You love me You only desire what is best for me. Because You are the wisest of all, You know what is best for me. In humbly surrender unto You my Beloved Heavenly King I do make this pledge. Amen
May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
