Glory Seed Devotional’s, 2017: Anticipating and Experiencing God…
All to Jesus I surrender
All to Him I freely give
I will ever love and trust Him
In His presence daily live.
(All to Jesus I surrender verse 1)
God has Set his sights on YOU and He will not quit until He has YOU not just a part of YOU but all of YOU! And He started even before YOU were born. He started in a cow barn with the birth of Jesus, And the day YOU were born He intensified His passion for 100% YOU! A.W. Tozer in his book Knowledge of the Holy offers this hint at only a part of lies ahead for YOU when YOU wave the white flag and surrender all to Him.
“How completely satisfying to turn from our limitations to a God who has none. Eternal years lie in His heart. For Him time does not pass, it remains; and those who are in Christ share with Him all the riches of limitless time and endless years. God never hurries. There are no deadlines against which He must work. Only to know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves. For those out of Christ, time is a devouring beast…”
The easy part of surrendering our lives to the Divine is surrendering. But once the surrendering part is over next comes the hard part, staying surrendered! But when it comes to the point when we want to take our white flag back the words of Peter urge us to stay surrendered. “So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.” (1 Peter 1:6–7, NLT)
All to Jesus I surrender
Make me Saviour wholly Thine
Let me feel the Holy Spirit
Truly know that Thou art mine.
(All to Jesus I Surrender verse 3)
“May God be merciful and bless us. May his face smile with favor on us.” **
Grace and PEACE,
