A common misconception in the Church today is believing that if a person is in “ministry,” they are doing God’s will. However, there are some people that do their own ministry and not what God desires of them. Jesus is the supreme example for surrendering and doing the will of the Father. In fact, His surrender made way for our salvation!
“.. nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done” (Luke 22:42).
Getting to the place of true surrender is getting to the end of self. It is putting aside personal agendas, desires, and even one’s life to help fulfill God’s will. Esther surrendered her life to intercede for her nation and was willing to perish if necessary. By doing so, she was highly favored by the king, and her nation and family were preserved!
In the New Testament, Apostle Paul was willing to live for the sake of the Philippians, when he could have left this earth and been with Jesus eternally. He was “poured out as a drink offering.”
You see, true surrender to God is always about someone other than ourselves.. Many people don’t realize that even though they may prophecy, pray for the sick, pastor a church, lead a Bible study, or many other “godly” things, it does not mean they are doing God’s WILL..
I encourage you to get to the end of you and let God truly have the depths of your heart, mind, soul, and will, so that you can honestly say to Him, “Not my will, but yours be done..”
Call 1-877-843-4567 and let a prayer warrior pray with you. The thing about God, there is never anything you can give up, to do His full will, that He won’t give back to you in GREATER proportions and dimensions..!!” ~David E. Taylor~ #ThyWillBeDone #ForYourGlory #ForTheHarvest
