Surrendering your life to Jesus plans has always felt a little scary to me. What will he ask of me? Will I have to give up things? What if I don't like the direction he tells me to go? Recently I read a book that challenged me and reminded me of a few key things that helped put my mind at ease. The book reminded me that God created me and knows me. He knows my strengths and weaknesses. He knows what I'm capable of. And yes, sometimes God will call us to do things we're uncomfortable with or challenged by. He'll calls us to place our full trust in him because he wants to give us the best he has planned for us. By surrendering to God we can receive his best for our life. Who better to know what's best for us than the one who created us and sent his son to die for us. When I think about it that way, I find comfort in knowing I'm trusting not only a friend, but also a savior that truly wants the best for me and guides me along his path for God's glory and for a life better than I could have created for myself.
John 14:6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.
Jesus is the way, the truth and the LIFE! Life, not burden or worry or death. Jesus is The Life. Will you trust him with your life today?
