Surrender Strengthens You


The paradox of surrender is that it produces power and victory. Stubborn temptations and overwhelming problems can be defeated by Christ when handed over to him. As Joshua approached the biggest battle of his life, he encountered God, fell in worship before him, and surrendered his plans. That surrender led to a stunning victory at Jericho. Surrender doesn't weaken you, it strengthens you. Why surrender? Because you belong to your Creator -- God has a right to direct your life: "We are not our own bosses to live or die as we ourselves might choose." (Romans 14:7 LB) Because Christ bought you with his sacrifice -- The Bible says, "And He died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for the One who died for them and was raised." (2 Corinthians 5:15 HCSB) When you surrender to Christ, you fulfill the very purpose he died for - not just to save you from hell, but also to save you from self-centeredness!


“and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.”

‭‭II Corinthians‬ ‭5:15‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
