12 Weeks of Prayer Week 4 Day 5
VICTORY ONLY IN FULL SURRENDER
By Justin N. Citro
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths."
Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV
As believers in Christ, the only way we can have complete victory is when we have fully surrendered our lives to Christ. In this life, there are many worldly things that can prevent a Christian from fully surrendering to Christ. However, to survive in this world, surrendering everything to Christ is the best thing you can do for when you give up everything and your chains have been lifted for doing so, victory is certain! Christ commands us to lay down everything and take on His image so we can be like him. The Christian who surrenders all will receive the total victory! "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God," Romans 12:2 KJV.
What does the Bible have to say about surrendering your all to Christ? "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths," Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV. This verse clearly states that our own thinking and understanding will fail for it is only the Lord that will make our paths straight. This verse also conveys another thing we must do as Christians and that is to always acknowledge the Lord for it is only the Lord who grants us the power to be victorious! My hope to you, Brothers and Sisters, is that if you are struggling in any way, surrender everything to Christ, and He will lead you towards victory! When we give everything over to the Lord with humble and contrite hearts, we can know and be assured that if the Lord be for us, who can be against us? Heavenly Father, I thank You and praise You for the victory You have given me. Lord, I surrender everything to You. Father, I place all my problems at your feet. Lord, I thank you for delivering me from my burdens. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
