Surrender

"The freedom of Christ is worth the surrender of absolutely anything. Relief, not remorse, awaits the repentant.

Father, Your Word says that a person who lacks self-control is like a city whose walls are broken down (Proverbs 24:28).

Sometimes I feel like there is so much rubble, I can't rebuild the wall (Nehemiah 4:10). But Your Word claims that You are the Repairer of Broken Walls, and the Restorer of Streets with Dwellings (Isaiah 58:12). Please introduce Yourself to me by these wonderful names and rebuild the rubble in my life.

I confess to You that I am overwhelmed by the task ahead, but I am thankful that You have authority over all things. Heaven is Your throne; earth is Your footstool (Matthew 5:35). Therefore, anything over my head is under Your feet!"

~~Praying God's Word Day by Day by Beth Moore; March 6 prayer.

This is my prayer for myself today. God, you always are faithful to show me what I need; to tell me what I need to hear. Please help me to continue to trust you and depend on you to help rebuild the mess I've made out of my life. Thank you that you always forgive and bring me back into your loving arms. What would I do without YOU?

What would any of us do without HIM?

God be with you and bless you today.

  1. So would I, Greg; and I've found that to be so true lately. When will I learn?
