Seek and Surrender

Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness..   Matt 6:33

I love this verse. A simple yet profound statement. And one which always needs revisiting. Seeking God. Knowing Him.

My God, The Great I Am, loves us with an everlasting love. Passionately. And Faithfully. How well do we know Him? What aspects of His nature do you have a revelation of?  Or even a glimpse of? I encourage you to seek Him. To pursue Him. As he reveals more of Himself to us, not only do we become closer to Him, but our hearts begin to reflect more of His heart, to the world around us.

And Surrender.

I have been crucified with Christ and no longer live, but Christ lives in me.. Gal 2:20

I desire to live a life in Christ. And surrendered to Him. Surrendering is trusting. Laying down ourselves, our weaknesses, our strengths, our dreams, futures, our hearts, our loved ones, into the hand of the one who created us. Who saved us.

The journey of surrender is painful, yet it is one of beauty. We feel the heat of God. His purifying fire. It’s not an easy walk – it takes the narrow path, but He meets us with His grace.

And it’s this place of seeking and surrendering that I choose to live.
