God doesn’t require much. Only everything…

O LORD, I give my life to you. 
I trust in You, my God!
Psalms 25:1-2 (NLT)

Yesterday, I felt God telling me to be still, to settle down, to let Him do. Looking back on it, I could've gotten the message sooner rather than later, but that's not really my style. I usually need a little help.

Let's talk a little bit about obedience and surrender. In the 25th Psalms, David affirms that all of our confidence belongs in God. As humans, we try our own ways, relying upon our own supposed strength, wisdom, and might, but ultimately, we are nothing without him.

Could you really trust Him? Trust as in relying upon Him for all of it? Could you really surrender, as in yielding everything to Him? According to author Jack Zavada,
When we submit ourselves to the will of God…the Holy Spirit  works through                   us. His power is  magnified through our obedience so we become an instrument in the hands of the Great Physician…
It's a remarkable aspiration, but do you really have what it takes to let go? To believe in something you may not, you may never understand? However, to be found worthy to be used by the Holy Spirit…isn't that worth everything?  

So today, with a clear heart and a clear mind, knowing I do not, knowing I need not understand, I give it all to You again, Lord. I trust You, more than anything. You've never forsaken me, never failed me; I am grateful for your Grace. You don't require much, only everything, and I surrender gladly, knowing You are good.
