Total Surrender

Mark 14:35-36
And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.

Surrender defined: an act of relinquishing control or possession to somebody or something.

What would total surrender look like on you? The same way it looked on Jesus, beautiful.

It is time to relinquish all control of every area of our lives. We must completely give up all rights to be the boss, without coercion or being forced to do it. Total surrender involves absolute resolve. We must never look back or be tempted to regret our decision to surrender all to Christ. To give up all we have, to receive all He is and all He has is simply no comparison. God’s least is greater than our all.

Surrender should not be perceived as drudgery but rather a privilege and an honor. Go a little further, yield today and begin to reap and experience the priceless fruit of total surrender.

  1. Very powerful, keep in mind as we surrender to God, this ultimately will lead to us surrendering to people in our lives
