Surrendering your life is not a foolish emotional impulse but a rational, intelligent act, the most responsible and sensible thing you can do with your life. Your wisest moments will be those when you say yes to God: “So we make it our goal to please him …” (2 Corinthians 5:9 NIV).
Everybody surrenders to something or someone in life. If not to God, you’ll surrender to popular opinion, to money, to resentment or fear, or to your own pride, lust, and ego.
So give it all to God: your past regrets; your present problems; your future ambitions; your fears, dreams, weaknesses, habits, hurts, and hang-ups. Don’t be afraid; nothing under his control can ever be out of control.
