It takes that one step. That moment of surrender. That swallowing of pride. The decreasing of you.
You may wonder how you can be yourself when you are giving up you, but in fact, you are more of yourself that you've ever been because you are becoming who God made you to be.
And when you consciously give yourself to Him, oh the victory that He makes! All because of His power in you. We still forget that He's SO much bigger than anything else we could ever do. Trusting Him is the only logical choice--don't you want to trust someone bigger than yourself? That can handle who you are?
And the guarantee that He will always be there, and has already won in the end....wow. Transforming power and strength He gives those who love Him.
So take that step, have that moment of surrender...and see what comes next.
"Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually."
"Because of your great power your enemies cringe beore you."
"Because your steadfast love is better than life..."
"Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us."
