What do you wish God would never ask you to give up?
What are you holding on to that God is asking you to release? What’s occupying the throne of your heart?
Abraham did not withhold Isaac his son from God when God asked him to give Isaac to God. Because Abraham was ready to sacrifice his son, God said, now I know that you fear and revere God, since you have not held back from Me or begrudged giving Me your son, your only son.
Moses preferred to share the oppression [suffer the hardships] and bear the shame of the people of God rather than to have the fleeting enjoyment of a sinful life.
Daniel gave up security, political power to honour God. Just like the three Hebrew boys he was prepared to lose his life in honor of God (see Daniel 3 & 6).
Jesus says, “Remember what happened to Lot’s wife! If you grasp and cling to life on your terms, you’ll lose it, but if you let that life go, you’ll get life on God’s terms” (Luke 17:32-33 MSG).
Let nothing hold you back from surrendering all to God. Surrender all – your life, your every thing to God.
