ACCEPT GOD’S OFFER TO HELP YOU
It’s not enough just to believe in God. You’ve got to plug into his power.
The only way to get God’s power is to surrender to him and let him fill you with his Spirit.
The Spirit that God has given us … fills us with power, love, and self control. (2 Timothy 1:7 TEV)
You’re not really in control until Christ is in control. How do you plug into God’s power? Real simple. Believe and receive. First believe that God exists, that He is in control of the world, and is in control of your life (because you asked Him to be), and tat he knows and cares about you, and has the power to help you. Then receive him into your life – simply say, “Jesus Christ put your Spirit in me.”
God is the higher power you can plug into. Open your heart and life to him today.
“When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up.” (Isaiah 43:2 NLT)
Committing your Life and Will
We need to consciously choose to commit all your life and will to God’s care and control.
“Happy are those who are humble.” (Matthew 5:5 TEV)
LETTING GO – THE COMMITMENT CHOICE
Meekness is not about weakness. Meekness is about strength under control. The Commitment choice is about surrendering control of your life to a power much greater than yourself.
“Come to me, all of you who are weary and over-burdened, and I will give you rest! Put on my yoke and learn from me … For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 PH)
