What Does Surrender Look Like? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 07/21/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: If we want to be like Jesus, we need to learn to surrender to God’s will. I asked some friends what surrender looked like to them.

“I was challenged to be more generous . . . to give some of my stuff away.”

“I had to change some spending habits.”

“I learned to be less opinionated.”

“I had to take some things off my schedule.”

Nancy: We’re all faced with the same question: Will I follow God’s will in every area of my life?

“I had to stop trying to change my husband.”

Nancy: Jesus said, “Why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?” So many professing Christians go through life without asking, “What does God want me to do about this? What does the Bible say?”

“Following God’s call for me meant moving to a new city. I had to leave my house and friends.”

Nancy: Have you asked what God thinks about the issues you’re facing? Once He shows you, then simply say, “Yes, Lord.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
