I have always struggled with surrendering all areas of my life to God… Why? Because I get scared that if I give it all to him he won’t give me all I ever want, but that is a lie from satan.
Sometimes I try to handle things with my own strength knowing fully well that it will not go down well lol.
I have come to a realization lately that the holy spirit is a person, he is our partner and friend. His desire is to hold our hands as we walk through this journey together. He teaches us total surrender from his word of truth, he aligns our thoughts in obedience to Christ, daily I talk to him in prayers and invite him all over again into my life, admitting my weaknesses. Transparency is key in walking with the holy spirit. I know my strength will fail me. There are days that I do not want to do things that will benefit me, there are day I have felt I cannot go on.. Guess what! That is when his strength is made manifest in my life. The holy spirit is my friend.
As I have decided to partner with the holy spirit lately, all those areas in my life that I hold unto, I find myself surrendering all to God with ease because he is the Prince of peace. I desire his peace, I desire that my life will be a total reflection of his glory. I want to be a lady who stood for Jesus and loved him with all my life. I want to be a lady who will love others genuinely without holding back.
Despite all the troubles and challenges life will throw at you. Learn to depend on the holy spirit. He is your guide, he is your friend, your all, he directs all your ways and joy unspeakable shall he give unto you.
Isaiah 1:8 say “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”.
What caught my attention in the above scripture is this “Come now, let us settle the matter”. This shows us that God desires that we have an intimate relationship with him. He loves you so dearly and trust me as you develop this relationship with him you will gradually surrender to him without holding back because your future is secured in him.
He is willing to wash all your sins away and make you brand new no matter what you have done and how far you have gone.❤
