Day1 Humility and surrender

Day 1

Humility and surrender
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you
James 4:7
Humility and surrender are the greatest indicators that we have died to the self. When God wants to use someone, the first thing He does is lead them to surrender their will and become a broken vessel. It is the way of dying to what we want and being ready for the Lord to do His will in us. So we must humble ourselves and surrender those distractions that interfere with our becoming instruments in His hands, to be used powerfully by the Lord. When we die to ourselves, all resistance to change and be transformed disappears. We stop fighting and surrender completely to Him. If we keep struggling, it means that our sinful nature still has dominion over us. When we surrender completely, we stop resisting the will of God, and we become His “property.” We are no longer interested in what others say or do, or what our medical records state, because our trust is placed firmly on God and His power. We are no longer afraid of taking leaps of faith, or to assume risks, because we know we have nothing to lose. Remember that the more you die to yourself, the more power of the resurrection will manifest in and through you. It is time to surrender to Him and stop fighting.

Do you want to die to your old nature? Surrender yourself before God! You too must die to your old lifestyle, and in the process you will be changed, healed and delivered by God. Are you ready to begin today?

Let us pray

Lord Jesus, just as You died for me one day, I too want to die to my desires, thoughts and actions. I surrender myself at the foot of the cross, because I want to be completely transformed. Lord, I surrender! I give You my will, so that You can do Yours. It is no longer I that live, but Christ who lives in me!
