DAY 3 Surrender to God

Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted over the earth.” Psalms 46:10

There are burdens, problems and yokes we struggle with every day. However, God tells us in Psalms 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God.” To not surrender to God is to choose to live a burdened, restless and stressed life with all its pressures. In contrast, when we give our problems to the Lord, we become still and receive His rest. Matthew 11:28 says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” When do we enter rest? When we stop fighting with our own strength; when we let go of the burden and surrender to God.

Today you can begin to rest, starting with this simple prayer: “Lord, I cannot fix this problem with my own strength, so I let it go and leave it in Your hands”. When you let go, your soul rests, and you let God be God. When you surrender to His will, you allow Him to intervene in your problem. Today the Lord wants to teach us how to rest in Him. While we serve and worship Him, He will work in our favor. Surrender to Him, and let God be God!

Pray with me
Lord Jesus, I repent for trying to do everything on my own strength. I apologize for not letting you act in my life. I surrender to Your Holy Spirit, and from this moment, I let You be God in my life. Today I make a commitment to love and serve You with all my heart. Thank you Jesus. Amen.
