If I’m honest, I spend far more time working and striving to do things for God than I do simply surrendering; simply laying down my ideas and plans and saying, “Here I am; use me.”
What might I have missed out on by stubbornly insisting on my way?
Lets face it, God doesn’t NEED our work. Things God could do with a word, He lets us roll up our sleeves and step into. Our wildest plans pale in comparison to what He has for us...if we would just be still; just surrender; just follow His lead.
The pressure is off. These are His plans. We don’t have to be perfect because Jesus is perfect for us. We simply have to say, “yes.”
