Surrendering everything means being willing to say, “Lord, whatever You want me to do I’ll do it. I say yes to anything You ask of me, even if it means dying to myself and my desires. I will give up the things of the flesh that I want in order to have more of You in my life.” This attitude of surrender means putting God first and submitting to His rulership.
God is not only Lord over the universe; He is Lord over our individual lives as well. Whether we acknowledge that or not will determine the success and quality of our life. If we would drop everything and say, “I give up, Lord. I surrender. Take everything. I will do whatever You say,” our lives would be better in every way.
Lord, I bow before you this day and declare that You are Lord over every area of my life. I surrender myself and my life to You and invite You to rule in ever part of my mind, soul, body, and spirit. Lord, I love You with all my heart, with all my soul, and with all my mind. I commit to trusting You with my whole being. I declare You to be Lord over every area of my life today and every day. I surrender my relationships, my finances, my work, my recreation, my decision, my time, my body, my mind, my soul, my desires, and my dreams. I put them all in Your hands so they can be used for Your glory.
In Jesus name I pray
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your way acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your cares upon Him for He cares for you.
1 Peter 5:6-7
