“Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?”
Romans 6:16 ESV
Whatever you give yourself to, that is what controls you. You are a slave to whatever you yield to. The choice is yours but once you make the decision the control is out of your hands. Many think they can control the outcome but the weakness of human flesh is evident.
God is calling you to yield to Him. He wants complete control. He wants to have you surrender your will to His. This is a decision you must make; He will not force you to yield. However, if you will yield, you will see God work in ways you never dreamt possible.
When you yield to Jesus, He will take control of your life and begin to recreate new passions and desires that will fill your soul. He alone has the power to break every other ball and chain n your life that keeps you a prisoner. Don’t continue to submit yourself to false thinking: “I can control this or that”. You can’t! But Holy Spirit will come in power and set you free if you will yield yourself to Him.
Do you feel like anything has control over you?
Do you feel out of control?
What does yielding to God mean to you?
How do you practice yielding to God?
Are you lying to yourself in an area of life?
