“This is being fully surrendered to me,” the Holy Spirit who indwells the Lord’s followers spoke to my heart.
“I don’t want you surrendered in one area of your life and not in others. I want you fully surrendered.”
The Holy Spirit wasn’t finished.
“This means in ALL areas,” He continued.
More? Oh, yes!
And before I continue, let me say this. This message is NOT just for me. It is for every single person on this earth! For we are to be ALL fully surrendered to the Lord Jesus Christ!
How so? In our thoughts, words, and actions. In our everyday lives, as the Lord made clear to me that day. In everything! All the time! We are to be His! Through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ as Lord who died to pay our sin penalty and was raised from the dead, through committing our lives to Him, we are to be WHOLLY HIS! Entirely! Without any exception! We are to BELONG TO HIM! Fully surrendered! Totally devoted!
Yes, we are to be fully surrendered to the Lord. Period. End of conversation.
Friend, if you are holding back anything at all from the Lord, if you have not surrendered it to Him, if you think it belongs to you and not to Him, if you are living in one area or multiple areas of your life apart from God, if you are in any kind of rebellion whatsoever against God, if you are disobeying the Lord in anything, the truth of the matter is this.
What is not surrendered to God, you and I must surrender ALL to Him!
Now is the time! May we hold nothing back from the Lord not ever. AMEN!
Father, I can hardly believe I just wrote this message! Me, who lived for so many years calling you Lord with so very little surrendered to you. Me, who lived in disobedience for so long. Me, who is so exceedingly thankful you didn’t leave me where I was and have brought me to where I am. Me, who still falls short every single day but thanks be to you knows when to repent and is ever striving to live fully surrendered to you, oh Lord. I am yours, dear Father, yes, I am yours! Now use me beyond description to please encourage others with all my heart to surrender absolutely everything to you, dear God!
Father God, with all my heart, I “implore” you to use a good Bible word to please cause in every single person who ever comes across this message a desire beyond measure to believe in you with all their hearts, to follow you with all their hearts, and to be fully surrendered to you – with all their hearts, yes! Thank you for answering my cry, oh Lord! Thank you, dear Father! AMEN!
