The solution is surrender…founded on trust.
The surrender isn’t the hard part, trust is the hard part.
Surrender comes naturally when the trust is there, is proven, is secure.
But it is not easy or natural to trust, is it?
“This is why the fulfillment of God’s promise depends entirely on trusting God and his way, and then simply embracing him and what he does. God’s promise arrives as pure gift.
That’s the only way everyone can be sure to get in on it, those who keep the religious traditions and those who have never heard of them.
For Abraham is father of us all. He is not our racial father—that’s reading the story backward. He is our faith father.” (Romans 4:16 MSG)
Faith begins with trust, is walked out in trust and ends with trust.
Surrender is the by-product of faith, not the other way around.
Work on building,living and walking out your trust in God and the surrender will come.
Surrender is the solution and trust is what gets you there.
