“Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness” Hebrews 3:7-8, ESV.
There are rich blessings that you only get to experience when you completely surrender to God. If you are on the fence, you won’t experience the full life He has for you. It’s not until you completely surrender everything to Him that He comes and fills your life completely.
More of Him will always cost all of you.
If you’re looking around at others who are receiving from the Lord, look closer, and you will see a completely surrendered life. There’s never a reason to envy another believer because you too have the power to surrender. It comes down to a decision only you can make. You can either remain where you are or completely dive into things of God with reckless abandonment. You can either stay on the fence, or you can take the leap of faith and see how God causes you to soar.
No more games. “No more!” God says, “Now is the time of salvation. Do not harden your hearts. Now is the day to give Me all of you and receive all of Me. Now is the time when you must choose who you will serve. If I am God, serve Me.”
Prayer: Father God, I give my life to you. My past, my present and my future. My heart, my mind, and my soul. I give you everything I have, and I receive all of you. All of your love, all of your grace, and all of your Spirit in me. Completely pour yourself into me, Lord, I come to you empty, and I’m determined to leave full. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
(Read Matthew 16:24-25)
