Do you really want victory in your life? Have you tried all you can to become victorious and failed? The answer is surrendering all your worry to Christ. If you know in daily life what absolute surrender is, that is what you have to do to God. Living implies life. Life is an everyday experience. Offering ourselves to God is not something that should be contained every time. A living sacrifice is a sacrifice that is alive and continuous in action. God expects your surrender as you wait for his blessings. Who is God? He is the Fountain of life, the only Source of existence, power and goodness. Throughout the universe there is nothing good but what God works. God has created the sun, the moon, the stars, the flowers, the trees, and the grass. Are they not all absolutely surrendered to God? Do they not allow God to work in them just what He pleases? When God clothes the lily with its beauty, is it not yielded up, surrendered, given over to God as He works in it its beauty? And God's redeemed children, oh, can you think that God can do His work if there is only half or a part of them surrendered? God cannot do it. God is life, love, blessing, power, and infinite beauty, and God delights in communicating Himself to every child who is prepared to receive Him. But ah! This one lack of absolute surrender is just the thing that hinders God. And now He comes, and as God, He claims it.
You know that everything has to be given up to its special, definite object and service. I have a pen in my pocket, and that pen is absolutely surrendered to the one work of writing. That pen must be absolutely surrendered to my hand if I am to write properly with it. If another holds it partly, I cannot write properly. A coat is absolutely given up to me to cover my body. This building is entirely given up to religious services. And now, do you expect that in your immortal being, in the divine nature that you have received by regeneration, God can do His work, every day and every hour, unless you are entirely given up on Him? God cannot. The temple of Solomon was absolutely surrendered to God when it was dedicated to Him. And every one of us is a temple of God, in which God will dwell and work mightily on one condition-absolute surrender to Him. God claims it, God is worthy of it, and without it God cannot work His blessed work in us. Surrender your future, your past, your dreams, your worries, and everything so that he uses you in the way he wants to use you.
James 4:7 (KJV)
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
