Complete Surrender

Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this:

Psalms 37:5

When we truly love God, have a stronger relationship with the Father, not a simple passion (straw fire, which when poorly controlled can lead to perdition, for unhealthy jealousy among other things worse), not limited only friendship and servitude, it is common to want to surrender our lives completely to His will, say, choose to be in the center of His will, know Him more and more, follow the footsteps of Jesus and His teachings without reservation. We are totally dependent on Him and His grace, love, mercy, forgiveness and power, it is above everything and everyone.

Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.

Luke 9:23

But despite worthwhile is not easy to follow him, even because it is very common on our part, by instinct of our carnal nature, we want to just “our” plans, “our” way in “our” time scheduled as we find it convenient, casting lots, without absolute certainty of results, without consulting God first, which is unfortunate, knowing we are flawed, he is not.

Jesus waits cheerfully us to accept Himself as the Son of God, one and only savior of our lives, who forgives and cleanses us from all sin by His blood and is always ready to receive us, remembering that different from many doctrines triumphalist views out there preaching a gospel of only wins (heretic), Christ himself told us that it would not be easy, but we kept the firm and mirth in Him, why has secured us the victory …

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33

The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all;

Psalms 34:19

Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,

but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.

Matthew 24:12-13

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Psalms 46:10

Even as our victories we face does not come without struggles, trials, because without them there is no way to gain experience, to grow.

Christ, through the prayer of “Our Father”, by many known, taught us to first submit to the Father’s will, God’s will.

“Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as {it is} in heaven.”
Matthew 6:10

And even in the garden in Gethsemane prayers (shortly before being betrayed by Judas and delivered to death at the hands of the Pharisees, scribes, priests and teachers of the law … No fault / taint any) in a lightweight and very fast time to carnal weakness (to be man), anguish and sorrow acted as follows:

And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou {wilt}.
Matthew 26:39

We highlight the words “nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt”, even though want to be freed of what he had to suffer very soon, chosen and subjected obviously the will of the Father, not himself again teaching us to Whom we will surrender ourselves.

Surrender, surrender truly to God is not just love him and serve him, but deliver our tastes, beliefs, concepts, customs, our dreams, gifts and talents, and material possessions of emotional value, our passions and loves (family relationship, with friends and with all we live with daily), wills, give Him only, absolute control over our lives, WITHOUT RESERVATIONS (even because none of it is ours definitely, but He has given us, because we deserve and so we could manage it all) and remember that He is God, trust His promises and His will, which is good and acceptable and perfect!

Although that the beginning looks hard and painful, it is worth at the end!

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, {which is} your reasonable service.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what {is} that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Romans 12:1-2

Being living sacrifice, the term and the key word here.

It is an attitude and a plausible strategy and pleasant for us that every day, preferably in the morning, in our prayers, consecrate “our” day to God, to Him surrender every thought, decision, action, word and every step we take.

This is it,

I love you all
