Surrendering to God isn’t a surface issue, it’s a heart problem. It is doubt that God really loves you and that He is good. I read a quote once that said, “Satans goal is to get you to doubt God’s goodness.”
Recently Psalm 107 has really stood out to me because it reminds me of my life. It talks about how God’s people are constantly running from Him and then they get into trouble and call out to God for help. He helps them and their all like, “Oh God is so good, we’ll serve you because you are God.” And then they turn around and run from God again.
The first verse in Psalm 107 says, “O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endures forever.”
Until we truly believe in our heart that God is good and loves us unconditionally, we will never be able to totally surrender to God.
Jesus came to give us life abundantly.
John 10:10 says, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
The first step to acknowledging the fact that God is good and loves you, is to begin sharing your heart with Him. Sometimes this can sound like your arguing with Him, and that is okay. Sometimes this means crying or getting angry and telling Him about it. He already knows what is in your heart, so just tell Him. Why would it bother Him if your heart is truly desiring to surrender to Him?
I hope you enjoy this months mid-month motivation. I love you and pray you have a blessed weekend!
