Often when we hear someone say, “I give up,” it tends to leave a negative mark in our minds. But the other day in prayer, the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said that these three words known to signify quitting something can actually mean surrender.
Surrender is a beautiful act of worship to God. We allow Him to have full control and lead us in His path for us. As Pastor Rick Warren says, many times we have been trying but we need to be trusting.
So I encourage you today to give up the need to control the situation. Give up doing things your way. Give up leaning to your own understanding and lean into His. God promised to never leave or forsake you. He’s got you. When you give up in Him, you’re giving up in a good place.
