March 19: Total Surrender

March 19_surrenderA“He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increases strength.”  (Isaiah 40:29)

There is a place in God where we can find increased strength … strength to live a holy life according to His will for us. It seems ironic that what we call “surrender” is actually the means to the most powerful place found in God.

A soldier in wartime dreads the moment when he is cornered on all sides by the enemy and forced to surrender. He willingly gives up all his personal rights, leaving him totally vulnerable to his captor. But with God, this is exactly what He desires for us. Total surrender to Him. Willingly give up all personal rights and become totally vulnerable to Him. He wants to “captivate” us through total surrender to Him.

“To them that have no might he increases strength…”  When our might and our strength to do things our own way are surrendered to Him, we lay down our will to the Father enabling Him to increase His strength in us. He is able to empower us for service. He is able to provide everything we need that pertains to life and godliness.

“We must decrease that He may increase … to them that have no might he increases strength”!

Have you totally surrendered? Have you decreased that He may increase? Is the strength in your life His strength or are you living on your own might? Examine yourself today and make a decision to totally surrender to Him so His strength will be increased in you. He will be seen in all you do, everywhere you go, and in whatever you set your hand to. Glorify Him today through total surrender.

Father, help me surrender to You totally. Help me decrease that You may increase. Help me walk in total surrender to You. Amen.

“For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.”  (2 Chronicles 16:9)
