I allowed my heart to cry unto the Lord during Sunday’s corporate worship and these words followed…
Surrender all. Surrender all. Surrender all.
Those words were uttered as I pleaded before Him to help me. I needed Him so much; to renew and change me in His likeness and power.
Almost at once, He spoke His word to me…
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
Mark 12:30 (NIV)
Does God have my whole heart? Or 99% or 50%?
To love God with all my heart, my heart needs to be fully devoted and faithful to Him.
Is my mind, my thoughts and all submitted to Him? How am I feeding my mind if it belongs to God?
If I love God with my mind, I will keep watch against things that would corrupt and distract me from Him.
Am I wholly given unto Him and His cause by serving His Church? Or am I only using my daily strength in indulging in the things I take pleasure in?
In loving God with all my strength, I must be available to Him and use all that I have for His service.
Lord, I SURRENDER ALL!

Not by might, not by power, but by the Spirit of GOD (Zechariah 4:6)
Extracted from Nelson:
Through expectation and reliance on GOD’s power, HIS miracles will flow 🙂
2 Corinthians 12:9
And HE said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”
Bro, indeed GOD is glorified because of your heart for HIM. Your transparency and realness is a truthful testimony of the in-working of the HOLY SPIRIT in the Christian’s life. Jia you, jia you! 🙂
