Jesus prayed to the Father, “I have brought You glory on earth by completing the work You gave me to do.” John 17:5
- Have you surrendered to God and His plan for your life?
- One of the biggest struggles that I have is surrendering to God’s will. Many times I already have my own plans made up in my mind before I ever go to God in prayer and ask for His directing. Instead I make my own plans and ask God to bless what I want. But what does God want from my life? What work does God want me to accomplish on this earth?
- Jesus surrendered to the Father’s will. It wasn’t an easy surrender, because the Father’s will would eventually lead Jesus to the Cross and suffering. It’s easy to surrender to God’s will when He leads us up the mountain and we have an awesome divine experience. But what about when He leads us down in to the valley of suffering? Are we still willing to surrender to God’s will?
- Take some time and pray to God for the strength to surrender to His directing and guidance in your life. Ask Him to show you the work He wants you to accomplish.
