Do you want your life to be in step with God's will in your life? Do you want to walk in the way of the Lord in your life? Then surrender yourself totally to the Lord. Surrender everything you have to the Lord- your life, your ways, your mind, your possessions, your loved ones, everything you have to the Lord. Then you will stand totally dispossessed in front of God and will not care because you know that God will provide for all your needs. It is not that we will just stand idle and wait for manna to come down from heaven. It is that we totally dissociate ourselves with everything that is worldly and do everything to please God and glorify His name. Jesus always prayed to ascertain the will of His Father and acted accordingly to that will. That was why He could safely say that He and His Father are one because He works in perfect step to the will of His Father. It is really hard to live in this world but not of this world. But so long as we keep on associating with things worldly, so long will we be pulled back to the orbit of the earth's worldliness. We enjoy the things of this world to the detriment of the development of our soul to be in step with God's purpose for our lives. We develop cravings and desires which nurture discontent in our lives. We compare ourselves with others and begin to covet what others have which we do not have. Soon a spirit of bitterness and covetousness develops in our hearts. To counteract this, we must be willing to surrender everything we got at the foot of the cross and have them nailed to the cross with our Lord Jesus Christ. Then we are born again to the transcendent world of pure joy and ecstasy in our hearts, knowing fully well that we will enjoy eternal life with our God.
