I know that there are some who are reading this message that might be walking the thin line between good and not so good. Well its time to decide who you will serve. Use these instructions from scripture to seal the deal.

Today’s Prayer

“I surrender all. I surrender all. All to thee my blessed Savior, I surrender all.”


Dear Lord, like that precious old hymn goes; we want to surrender all to you, to the point that our every thought and action is related to your will and desire. We ask you to mold us and make us into the vessels of honor and blessing that you want us to be. We are yielded to you, waiting for your work and direction in our lives so that we may be all that you want us to be and do all that you want us to do. May we bless you Lord. In JESUS’ name, amen. 

Let’s eat.

The Door of Full Surrender

Job 23:10 

But he knows every detail of what is happening to me; and when he has examined me, he will pronounce me completely innocent–as pure as solid gold!


I was recently sitting with a group of spiritual leaders and I posed a question to them that had been in my spirit and I ask of myself from time to time.

 “What if there were two doors to choose from; behind one door was the complete will of God for your life and behind the other door was how life could be according to your own preference. Which door would you choose?”

The struggle for most lies in the desire to follow God completely and the fear of what might be behind the door of full surrender. Most of us desire to follow God, but few of us will do it at any cost. We don’t really believe that GOD loves us to the degree that we are willing to give Him complete permission to do as He wills in us. If we desire to fully walk with Christ, there is a cost. We may give intellectual agreement and go along with His principles and do fine; however, if we are fully given over to Him and His will for our life, it will be a life that will have adversity. The Bible is clear that humans don’t achieve greatness without having their sinful will broken. This process is designed to create a nature change in each of us, not just a habit change. The Bible calls it circumcision. Circumcision is painful, bloody, and personal.

If God has plans to greatly use you in the lives of others, you can expect your trials to be even greater than those of others. Why? Because, like Joseph who went through greater trials than most patriarchs, your calling may have such responsibility that God can’t afford to entrust it to you without ensuring your complete faithfulness to the call. He has much invested in you on behalf of others. He may want to speak through your life to a greater degree than through another. The events of your life would become the frame for the message He wants to speak through you.

Don’t fear the path that God may lead you on. Embrace it. For God may bring you down a path in your life to ensure the reward of your inheritance.


2 Corinthians 4:17  

These troubles and sufferings of ours are, after all, quite small and won’t last very long. Yet this short time of distress will result in God’s richest blessing upon us forever and ever!

Quote of the Day

When a man walks in the fear of God he knows no fear, even if he were to be surrounded by wicked men. He has the fear of God within him and wears the invincible armor of faith. This makes him strong and able to take on anything, even things which seem difficult or impossible to most people. Such a man is like a giant surrounded by monkeys, or a roaring lion among dogs and foxes. He goes forward trusting in the Lord and the constancy of his will to strike and paralyze his foes. He wields the blazing club of the Word in wisdom. ~Symeon~
