When it comes down to it, nothing else matters… no other decisions we can make, no hark work we can do, no truth we can say… it’s all for loss if we do not possess a surrendered heart.
And I believe that is what God is longing for from us. He created us with the purpose of enjoying us and us enjoying Him, but our pride, lack of trust and selfishness robbed us both of that end.
When you take a step back and look at your life, don’t make assessments primarily based on lifestyle — although, your life will bear the fruit of what is planted at the core — focus in on the heart.
Are you surrendered? Are you trusting? Are you willing to give up, let go, walk away and follow, all for the sake of the King that is calling you?
Our Heavenly Daddy is calling us to deeper surrender. He modeled it first when He surrendered Himself on the cross through Christ. Should our heart let go of the reigns, we will find the unending pleasure of fullness of intimacy with our eternal Lover who desires to lavish good gifts on us and lead us abundantly through the obstacles of life.
As a good friend often says, “God doesn’t want much, He just wants it all.”
