Begin this day with the determination to surrender to God …. Many things happen to us on a daily basis. We cannot avoid hardships and obstacles … this is part of being human. God does not create the situations in our lives … humans do. God gives us the free will to ask Him for help overcoming these situations … but we must seek Him, and we must ask Him to help us. He never promised that we would not have trials, tribulations, or just plain ol’ problems ~ however, He did promise that we would never have to go through any of it alone!
It is such a common misconception in this world, for people to think God does certain things to them. God is a merciful, loving, and giving God. He gives us the opportunity to surrender to Him. He gives us the opportunity to look at things through His eyes. He is always there … but He will not force Himself on you. We must understand this concept. We as humans … create drama and deal with the worldly things that surround us. God as God … can and will turn those worldly things in another direction … “if” you let Him work through you to do so, which is according to His will; therefore raise the white flag today: Say I surrender …..
“Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid; neither be thou dismayed (discouraged), for the Lord thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest.”
“And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love. And he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.”
(1 John 4:16)
God is with us …..
