A Facebook friend shared this picture, and I just had to share it with you.
It’s easy for us look at this picture and think how silly it is for her to hold on when we see that He has something better for her.
Isn’t this so like us?? We have trust issues. We hold on to things we think are the better things for us. Do we really think we know better than God?
We forfeit a lot of untapped blessings by doing this.
If only we would just surrender it all to Him. Because, dear friends, He has better things for us and loves us beyond compare.
He holds no good thing from us. He can do immeasurably more than we could ever ask or imagine….if we would only TRUST Him!
The thing is – Jesus is looking for people to give more than words of belief; He’s looking to see how those words are lived out in our lives.
When we decide to believe in Jesus without making a commitment to follow Him, we are nothing more than fans. We need to become faithful followers.
What is it that you need to surrender? What things or people or hurts or pasts or (fill in the blank) are you still holding on to?
Won’t you trust Him and let go?
God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. Glory to God in the church! Glory to God in the Messiah, in Jesus! Glory down all the generations! Glory through all millennia! Oh, yes! (Ephesians 3:20, 21 MSG)
