Surrendering All

I recall in one of my posts, I made it clear that the will of a man is not what makes a man make his own everyday choices void of influence. The will is used to choose what or who will influence your decisions whether he knows/likes it or not. Please refer to Ye Are God’s to learn more.

Today, I write to you to encourage you on the huge importance of choosing to depend on God not only for everything but concerning everything.

You see when it comes to life as per the systems and when it comes to life as per your living, you do not have the slightest idea how it should run.

Listen, permit me to be allegorical here, when God created man, he put him in the garden for a reason not just in Eden. There are boundaries to the created life and this garden is our boundary, the words of our Lord is our garden. It is the boundary for every single human life. However, you see the moment you reject the counsel of God, the moment you step out of that boundary, there is no limit to the evil that can come out of you.

On the other hand, if you stay within the boundary, there’s no limit to the zoe that can spring out of you which is God’s preconceived plan.

I used to say that if I wasn’t a believer, I wouldn’t be so bad but recently, after reading some parts of scriptures, I decided to stop saying that.

You need to understand deeply in your heart that you didn’t make yourself. God did. You do not know yourself, God does. You have no idea the evil you’re capable of when you reject God’s counsel.

David understood that no man can discern their heart and Solomon taught us that wisdom is to guard it.

Read what David wrote.

Psalms 139:1-6 (KJV)
“O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.
Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.
Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

All these things that the Lord knows, David said it is too much knowledge for him. He can never attain it.

Listen friend, all I’ve come to do is encourage you to passionately seek God in prayer and learning of Him.

Listen, it is in knowing the Lord that the you He created is manifest. It is in knowing Him, that you live. You are not living the life He created until you know Him.

Psalms 19:12-13 (KJV)
“Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.”

Yet, the word of God has been given to us to keep us from this erroneous and destructive way.

Psalms 1:1-3 (KJV)
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”

This is why we should seek the knowledge of God and His way. Set your heart on Him, the maker of you and all things.
