I Surrender All. – 10/30/14

1 John 4:19 “We love him [God] because he first loved us.”  Since God has already taken the initiative and shown his love for us by sending his son to die for us, we have only one reasonable response and that is to  repent, call on the Lord Jesus for forgiveness and surrender all to him.   The song says, “All to Jesus I surrender, All to him I freely give, I will ever love and trust him, In his presence daily live.”  Surrendering is a daily task and not just a one time event.  We recently came face to face with something that we needed to surrender to the Lord.  This “certain” thing just did not seem to be working out in God’s plan for us at this time, so we came to the reality that we had to “surrender all” of this thing to the Lord.  Upon doing so, our hearts began to be overwhelmed with a sense of relief and peace.  It was at this point that we began to pray toward the things that remained, especially regarding the missions call.  Immediately God began to bless that very same day with referrals to churches for presenting ministry.   God is so good.  His love endures forever.
