Deep down inside there often seems like a war. A war that seems to quieten down at times; then begins to rage again. It seems that I can never finally end the war.
Then one day I had a thought.
What if I surrendered fully to the Lordship of Jesus. I could allow Jesus to fight the war for me. I will hand over my whole life to Jesus including the war.
Then my pride kicks in saying ‘you cant hand over your life to Jesus!!!! You cant even handle a stupid war inside yourself!!!’. The never ending gloom keeps going on. And on. And on.
I make a decision ‘right that’s it!! My life is being handed over to Jesus. Every part of it!’. I will present my body as a living sacrifice to the Almighty God.
Things seem fine for a while.
Things quieten down for a while.
I might then be having a conversation with someone, they make a comment. I am then hurt with the pain of rejection. I have believed the devil’s lies again about myself.
Today I will choose not to believe the lies of the enemy.
Today I choose to lay down my life as a living sacrifice.
Today I choose to let Jesus fight for me.
Then in this war He will give me the victory.
Do you choose to lay your life down for Jesus today?
