If we find ourselves carrying the weight of our problems again today, we must surrender it to Jesus again.
You can’t be self-sufficient and totally reliant on God at the same time. Surrender your self-sufficiency again.
We can’t have faith and worry at the same time. Surrender your worries and anxieties again.
We can’t declare our independence and pray at the same time. Surrender your pride and ego and independence again.
We can’t pretend to be in control and let God take control at the same time. (Newsflash: We aren’t in control of anything in the absence of Holy Spirit.). Surrender your control and manipulation again.
We can’t fake it until we make it. Surrender your pretension again.
We can’t get out of all our debt; build our earthly empires; make a man love us; map out our lives and goals for the next ten years; make the current circumstances go away; or make people stop hating us – Surrender all that to Jesus – again. Jesus wants all of you and all your junk too. We have to surrender it all – again. Dr.J.
