Surrender (Jeremiah 10:23-25)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “surrender.” Jeremiah was a dude who knew a little about what it meant to live life for God. He was given a pretty tough task in delivering God’s message. Prophets were not always the most popular peeps on the block for the fact that they brought what needed to be heard – not always what others wanted to hear. Nevertheless, he was bold in this speech, knowing that God was with him. I love this verse here because after his address to Israel, Jeremiah prayed…

“I know, O Lord, that a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps.”
~Jer. 10:23

Jeremiah knew his life was not his own. My question is: How willing are you to allow God to direct your steps? Sometimes we want to do things our way. We get so focused on school, work, family, friends, and other madness that we forget that we are God’s creation. My prayer is that each of you surrenders your heart to the Lord. Let the Spirit renew you today as you remember God’s covenant, both with his peeps back then… and in your own life.

Praying for you,
