Give It To God And He Will Give It To You

Have you ever stop to think about that the best life you can live is the one you give up?  Jim Elliot once wrote, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” This is the best approach to life! Stop and think about all the times God tells us to give up and trust Him:

  • We are to give Him our bodies, mind, and will (Romans 12:1&)
  • We are to give Him our income (Malachi 3:8-10)
  • We are to give Him our care (1 Peter 5:7)
  • We are to give Him our understanding (Proverbs 3:5-7)
  • We are to give Him our protection (Job 13:15)
  • We are to give Him our marriage (Ephesians 5:22&23)
  • We are to give Him our children (Ephesians 6:1-4)

You see, when we stop trying to run our lives the way we think they should be run and turn them over to God, He will truly take care of us.  This doesn’t mean we will become wealthy, healthy, and famous.  Too many people are preaching that type of false gospel, but what God does promise is a life that honors Him.  When we do this we are truly walking by faith.  After all just think about it, who better to trust our whole lives with then the Creator Himself?
