DAY 11  Surrender your will

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; Proverbs 3:5

One who is called “Lord” is owner and master of something or someone, or who has supreme authority over a territory. After His resurrection, “the Father exalted Jesus to the highest place,” and made Him Lord “in the heavens, the earth and beneath the earth“ (Phil. 2:9-11). However, Jesus is a gentleman. He doesn’t force us to give Him any area of ourselves. Many say that Jesus is their Lord, but they have many areas in their lives that they refuse to surrender; and in those areas where He is not made Lord, He does not tend to it or its needs.

However, when we surrender our will, God becomes the supreme authority. When Jesus is the owner, the enemy cannot touch that area. For example, if you make Him Lord over your finances, He will be in charge of your prosperity; providing for you, obtaining the best contracts for you, and He will pour His grace and favor over you. We need to die with Jesus so we can arise with Him in the power of the resurrection. When you surrender your life, He becomes your savior, healer, protector and unconditional friend. Today, surrender every area of your life to Jesus, so that His will may be done.

No matter the place where you come from or what you’ve done, if you surrender every area of your life to Jesus, He takes you out of the filth and uses you for His glory.

Pray with me
Lord Jesus, I regret having acted in rebellion, but today I come before You and I surrender every area of my life. I choose to die to myself, I ask that You be my Lord and Master. Today I depose my arms and allow that, from now on, You transform my mind and guide my every step. I want to do Your will!

Proverbs 22:19
That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee.

Job 13:15
Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.

Proverbs 28:26
He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.
