So many times we try to do things on our own. We do not want to bother God with our small everyday decisions, we want to save those prayers for big decisions or trials. We keep going in our direction not looking unto the Lord. God is there just waiting for us to realize that we need Him every day in all of our decisions. In everything we do He is there with His direction for your life. He is just waiting for you to surrender your life to Him and let Him direct your path.
When we say, not my will but Yours be done, we have to truly mean it. Praying that way and then telling God “no” when you feel the nudge or pull from the Holy Spirit is not surrendering to His will. God has an amazing plan for your life. He just needs you. Not part of you, but all of you.
This is the point where you start thinking about all your worldly obligations and doubt there is room for service to God in your life. Let me tell you this, if you truly want to serve God, you will make a way. If you are still not sure, ask God for help. He will make time in your day for service.
A life living for God with complete surrender is a life filled to overflowing with God’s love. A heart burdened for others. A soul on fire for the Word. A life full of meaning and purpose. The world may never know your name, but you will make a difference in the lives that you reach for the Lord. Worth every moment.
Not my will, but Yours, be done.
