Why you can live a life of complete surrender
October 24, 2012
For you bless the righteous, O LORD;
you cover him with favor as with a shield.
It’s interesting to see the lack of confidence many people have in God’s plan for their lives. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told, “I’m afraid to surrender my life to Christ because I’m afraid He’ll send me to Africa and let me boil in oil as a missionary!”
So I’ll ask them, “Is God good? And, does He love you?” To which they’ll almost always answer, “Yes.” Then I say, “Then what makes you think He’s going to lead you down a path of destruction? Even if He does send you to Africa, you’ll be incredibly joyful because you’ll be in the middle of God’s will!”
The root of most distrust in God’s plan is either a lack of belief that He’s good, or believing He doesn’t have your best interest in mind. But as we see in passages like today’s, God always leads you in ways that will work out for your best if you are in Christ. That means even when you suffer, you do so knowing that the victory is yours in the end.
SURRENDER YOUR LIFE TO CHRIST, TRUSTING HE’LL GIVE YOU THE VICTORY IN THE END!

Become the man God desires!
You might think Jesus’ disciples were so extraordinary that you can’t possibly relate to them today.
But the truth is Jesus chose ordinary men to be His disciples and change the world—proof that He uses ordinary guys to do extraordinary things!
That’s why I want to send you two powerful resources today to help you or the man in your life become the man God desires: my 8-CD series called Why Believe – The 12, and my book, Man of God: Study Guide Edition.
In Why Believe – The 12, I give you inspiration—and words of warning—from the lives and beliefs of the disciples to help you live every day with significance and purpose.
And in Man of God: Study Guide Edition, you’ll come to understand the four vital areas of a man’s life that make him who he is!
These two resources are my gift to thank youfor your donation to help PowerPoint Ministries continue proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ, so please request yours when you give today!
