If you are living your life outside of why you are here, you’re living in your own strength. How is God going to empower you if that is what is happening
If you are living in your own strength, how is that working for you? You have to give everything to him. You can’t hold back the parts that you want control of. That is not how it works
It is time to surrender. If you think you have surrendered whatever it is that you need to surrender and you don’t have any peace about it, I would submit to you that you have not surrendered it completely yet.
Matthew 16:24-25 (KJV) 24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
23 He then looked everyone in the eye and said to them, “1Joining me in 2close companionship in your 3daily walk, involves perceiving my mission as fully representing you. Get 4over and done with any idea of “self” that contradicts your true I-am-ness! Here is how you do it: 5lift up your cross once and for all, by seeing it mirrored in mine! My cross is your cross!”
