When we surrender ourselves to Jesus completely, He empowers us to do His will. He is the Almighty and Sovereign Lord. The things God has called us to accomplish will be completed. No plan can succeed without Him and no plan can fail with Him. 

Deutoronomy 31:8 says: 

“The LORD Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

All the things that God has done through you, showcases His faithfulness. Yesterday will never be the same because what He does tomorrow will be better. Isaiah 43:18 encourages us to “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing.” 

God does not want you to go back to the way things were – to worry over yesterday nor worry about tomorrow. It’s easy to get caught up in thoughts like: “What will the future bring?” “What should I do now?” How will things last?”

Jeremiah 17:7-8 offers this encouragement:

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream and does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

As Christians and worshipers of Jesus, we are to follow Him first and to be ready to do His will. Christ is our reward and He is enough. Keep your eyes fixed on Christ and allow Him to provide the right steps to take in your walk with Him.

God understands our thoughts better than we do. He desires us to put our trust in Him. He provides for our needs; He covers us with His protection. If you are struggling to surrender your life situations to God then pray and ask God to teach you His ways and to follow His paths instead of your own.

Psalm 86:10 – 13 says:

For You are great and do marvelous deeds; You alone are God. Teach me Your way, Lordthat I may rely on Your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear Your Name. I will praise You, Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify Your name forever. For great is Your love toward me; You have delivered me from the depths, from the realm of the dead.
