MOVING FORWARD IN SURRENDER

 

He went on a little farther and fell to the ground. He prayed that, if it were possible, the awful hour awaiting him might pass him by. “Abba, Father,” he cried out, “everything is possible for you. Please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” Mark 14:35-36

 

Surrender is a military term that means to stop resisting and submit to the authority you are opposing. If we surrender to God, He has the best plans laid out for us and working for our greater good. Let us surrender to God and He will lead us forward into a life of freedom, excitement and blessing only if we surrender to Him.
