The war. The victory.

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?

About cleavinghearts

I go to church in Troon Scotland. I want to see men from every nation rise up in Christ and be who they are called to be. I am interested in men getting together to praise and just do men's things. I also want to see women rise above their pain and turmoil so they are free to follow Jesus without the hindrances of their past.
