Awesome we really need

By: naved

There is a person who is always with us and He is so awesome that we really need to surrender to His plan for us. Some people say He works mysteriously His wonders to perform. Well I have seen this happen time and time again. I call them little miracles and confirmations. Let me give you an example. Last night I was with a group of women who gathered together to discuss the book, THE SHACK.

At the end of the book I shared the one thing that impacted me most while reading The Shack. That one thing is the argument about surrendering. In my book; THE POWER of TRANSFORMATION, I discussed how God has transformed areas of my life.

The beauty about transformation is that it is a continuous process, and if you pay attention, you will see that as soon as you feel that you are doing well in one area, something else is revealed to you that needs fixing. It really makes you conscious of the state you are in.

To make a long story short, the first email I opened this morning was from Joel Osteen. I call Him the cool pastor who appears to really know what it means to surrender. If anyone knows how to have peace in Jesus it is Joel and I believe that it is because he has surrendered. In his email was a little prayer.

This line in the prayer reminded me of what I shared last night about how difficult it is to fully surrender. If you find it hard to surrender fully, here is a line from the prayer that you too can pray. LORD teach me to trust in You as I surrender to You every area of my life.

Another thing in Joel’s article that caught my attention is this question that he asks: Have you ever thought about something you wanted or needed, and suddenly that need was supplied—before you ever even stopped to pray about it? Some of the most amazing things that happen in my life have happened from thoughts things that I had not even prayed for.

Here is the full article from Joel Osteen

I will answer them before they even call to me… (Isaiah 65:24, NLT).

“Have you ever thought about something you wanted or needed, and suddenly that need was supplied—before you ever even stopped to pray about it? God knows your needs before you even speak them. He wants to provide for you and answer the very desires of your heart. When you put Him first in everything you do, when you faithfully follow His commands, He’ll pour out an extra portion of His goodness and favor upon you.

Don’t ever think God is too busy to answer your prayers. Don’t ever think your needs are too small, or that you don’t matter. He cares about everything that concerns you, and He loves to hear you call upon His name. You are very special to God, and He promises to answer in His timing, and sometimes, before you even call. Stand in faith knowing that God wants to shower you with His abundant blessings today.”

We are incredibly connected in the body of Christ and quite often what He is saying to one, He is saying the same thing to many. The problem is that some are not calling or listening to Him. If you do not call He can not hear you. If you do not listen you can not hear, trust, obey and surrender or surrender to Him.
