A Lifetime of Surrender by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 12/20/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Becoming a Christian means surrendering the control of our lives to God. But sometimes we take that control back.

“My wife thinks I put in way too many hours, but I have a career to think about. I have a life, too.”

“Sometimes I just lose it! Why can’t my husband do things the way I would do them?”

Nancy: When it comes to surrendering control of our lives, the moment when we are converted to Christ is just the beginning. That moment sets the stage for a lifetime of surrender, continually sayingno to self and yes to God.

Many Christians I know live discouraged, defeated lives because they’re trying to manage things on their own. As a result, they’re living out of alignment with the Lord who created and redeemed them.

Could it be there are issues you are reserving the right to control your own life?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
