Do you know who you are?… Take 2

Hello Friends,

I have shared this message before here. Ever since I have heard this message, I usually watch it every new years eve but this year something has prompted me to watch it sooner and I thought I would share it with you all again.

 

This message is so powerful and is a good reminder of many things.  Take a listen.

So with each year I get a new word from God it is kinda awesome. Here are my words so far…

2015 Love
2016 Worship

 

God has used these words and taken them farther and deeper than I could have ever imagined.  This time when I watched/listened to this sermon I thought for sure I knew what the word the Lord was giving me for 2017. He pressed this on my heart recently. I wrote about that here. You know I thought my word was going to be Deeper and I could have foolishly assumed without asking Him.

 

Thankfully I didn’t. Thankfully I asked. I waited and you know what He said….

 

Surrender…yup SURRENDER.

 

So my initial reaction was Lord… you know … surrender is a big word. I think I like deeper better. Deeper can be part of surrender. Surrender can go so many different ways, surrender  has multiple definitions….

Definition of surrender

     transitive verb
  • 1a:  to yield to the power, control, or possession of another upon compulsion or demand <surrendered the fort>
  • b:  to give up completely or agree to forgo especially in favor of another

  • 2a:  to give (oneself) up into the power of another especially as a prisoner

  • 2b:  to give (oneself) over to something (as an influence)

    intransitive verb
  • 1:  to give oneself up into the power of another :yield

 Lord, you know I surrender to you under your authority, I give my time, my life for you right? What more can I surrender?
And you know what He said….
I’ll show you. Are you ready to go deeper? We are going to go deeper.
Now I will not lie and say that I am not a bit scared. I have gotten some, for lack of a better word.. butt-spankings for God. It’s funny but as I write this out I realize that I may have a bit of a control issue still. I thought I had given that up… I thought I had surrendered that…
Ahhh
Let the surrendering begin! Lord forgive me. I give all control over to you it’s not mine to control.
Friends won’t you listen to that message above and ask Him for your word. Ask Him, don’t assume. Once you get it don’t avoid it, embrace it. He wants only good for us. I will go more into that tomorrow.
As always friends,
Be Blessed!
