A Place of Total Surrender.

Romans 8
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according toHis purpose.

Romans 9
15 For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion. 16 So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy.

2 families take communion daily.
Family 1 has a member who is in a car accident but comes out alive.
Family 2 has a child who falls sick but eventually dies.

2 couples in their old age have given tithes and offerings all their marital lives.
Couple 1 are very wealthy, live in the best part of town and are highly respected and known within society.
Couple 2 are very poor, can barely afford to pay their rent and are neither respected nor known within society.

Lesson 1.
It is not of him who takes communion nor to him who gives tithes and offerings, but of the Almighty God who shows mercy.

Lesson 2.
All things include not just the good but the seemingly bad also therefore;

If you survive an accident, ALL THINGS work together for good.
If you lost a child, ALL THINGS work together for good.
If you are wealthy, ALL THINGS work together for good.
If you are poor, ALL THINGS work together for good.

The condition is that you love God and you are called according to God's purpose.

I challenge you today to know God for yourself through His word and to love Him with all your heart.

Where God wants us is a place of TOTAL SURRENDER where no matter the situation or circumstance God remains God in our lives.

READ, STUDY and thereafter DO the word of God.

There's a fresh wind blowing in the body of Christ.
