SURRENDERING TO THE NEXT LEVEL!
”Laying your life down in tender surrender before the Lord will bring life, prosperity, and honor as your reward.” Proverbs 22:4 (TPT)
[Jesus said,] “All who seek to live apart from Me will lose it all. But those who let go of their lives for My sake and surrender it all to Me will discover true life!” Matthew 10:39 (TPT)
How To Surrender To The Next Level!
1. Surrender To Making Room For The Next!
[Jesus said,] “Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.” John 16:7 (NKJV)
“My son, throw yourself into this work for Christ. Pass on what you heard from me to reliable leaders who are competent to teach others.” 2 Timothy 2:1-2 (MSG)
"Enlarge your house. You are going to need a bigger place; don’t underestimate the amount of room that you’ll need. So build, build, build.” Isaiah 54:2 (VOICE)
2. Surrender To The Process Of Preparation!
[Jesus said,] “I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” John 14:2-3 (NKJV)
[Jesus said,] “There is urgency in all this. If you’re apathetic and complacent, then you’ll miss the moment of opportunity.” Luke 12:35
3. Surrender To The Pursuit For Growth, Not Control!
[Jesus said,] “I surrender My own life, and no one has the power to take My life from Me. I have the authority to lay it down and the power to take it back again. This is the destiny My Father has set before Me.” John 10:18 (TPT)
“I know our lives are in Your hands. It is not in us to direct our own steps — we need You.” Jeremiah 10:23
Wherever you seek control, God can’t be in control!
You will either have control or growth, but you can’t have both!
“You shut God out…Plotting the future as if you knew everything. 16 You have everything backward!” Isaiah 29:15-16 (MSG)
4. Surrender To The Revelation That What We’re Part Of Is Bigger Than The Part We Play!
“Then He [Jesus] walked a short distance away, and overcome with grief, He threw Himself face down on the ground and prayed, “My Father, if there is any way You can deliver Me from this suffering, please take it from Me. Yet what I want is not important, for I only desire to fulfill Your plan for Me.” Matthew 26:39 (TPT)
“The source of revelation-knowledge is found as you fall down in surrender before the Lord.” Proverbs 15:33 (TPT)
5. Surrender To Letting A New Era Supersede An Old Season!
“Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Father, I surrender My Spirit into Your hands.” And He took His last breath and died.” Luke 23:46 (TPT)
“The best thing to do [with your old life] is give it a decent burial and get on with your new life. 14 God's Spirit beckons. There are things to do and places to go! Romans 8:13-14 (MSG)
“Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18-19 (NKJV)
