Open Doors – Surrendering One’s Life to God - Monday, May, 4th

.... See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut .... Revelation 3:8B (NIV)

That is what is meant by the Scriptures which say that no mere man has ever seen, heard, or even imagined what wonderful things God has ready for those who love the Lord. But we know about these things because God has sent his Spirit to tell us, and his Spirit searches out and shows us all of God’s deepest secrets (purposes and opportunities KBH). 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 (TLB)

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

We talk a lot about "Living Fully for God" at Cape Cod Church. God has placed an open door before us for this kind of a life. We haven't even imagined what wonderful things God has ready for those who love the Lord and want to live fully for him. God is waiting to reveal and unfold the "living fully for God" kind of life he has in mind for us. It is not uncommon for those who want to live fully for God and want to enter into the wonderful things God has in store, to feel like the door to that kind of life is not so open to them. Perhaps the problem is that we confuse "living fully" with "living fully for God." We get caught up in merely pursuing "living fully" because we get in the way, but in "living fully for God" we are learning to get out of the way.

The door to "Living Fully for God" and finding the wonderful things God has ready for those who love him begins with the door of "Surrender." Making a commitment to the lifetime pursuit of surrender to God is the key to everything. When we make this commitment we are saying to God: I want you to be in charge of my life. I want to be a new person with the new life that you have in mind for me. I want your will and not my own. I am willing to be anything you want me to be, go anywhere you want me to go, and do anything you want me to do. I am willing to give up anything you want me to give up and to steer clear of anything that does not fit in with your will for my life. Perhaps the real issue with surrender is whether we believe we can trust God with our lives. If we can trust God, then it would seem that surrendering our lives to him makes all the sense in the world. Perhaps you have never made the commitment to pursue a lifetime of surrender to God or perhaps you find yourself at a spot where the commitment you have made is severely lacking. Either way, now is a great moment to come before the Lord in full commitment to a lifetime of surrendering to him.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, Here I am, take my life and all that I am and make everything new and right. Help me not to be afraid of anything that might happen as a result of surrendering to you. Help me to let go of everything. Help me to take hold of you completely. I release myself into your arms of love. I know you will lead me through the open door to the blessed life of living fully for you. Amen!
