In Touch Daily Devotional
by Dr. Charles Stanley
Friday June 3, 2005
If you want to experience victory in conflicts and tough decisions facing you, consider how Jesus fought and won his battles. Before He got to the cross, the crucial, pivotal battle of His life was fought in
Jesus’ example reveals that the key to winning life’s battles is being on your face before the Father, alone with Him and fully surrendered to His will. Godly counsel is important, but you cannot depend exclusively on others to tell you what to do. If you don’t wrestle things out alone with the Lord until you know what He is saying, you will never be sure you’re doing the right thing.
By making it a habit to spend time alone with God, you’ll be able to discern His perfect will when you come to major decisions with significant or even lifelong consequences. When you fully surrender, you place the consequences of your decision into the hands of an all-knowing, all-loving, all-powerful God who holds the past, present, and future in His hands.
