Have you been running from God? Maybe completely, maybe you are just trying to pretend He is not there so you can go on about your life the way you want. Or maybe it’s just one little area that you have hidden from Him. Maybe that thing is non negotiable to you. Like, you’ll go to church and even serve, but this thing cannot be discussed.
But here’s the truth, if you don’t hand it over He can’t have all of you, and if He can’t have all of you, you can’t be fully who He has called you to be. Yeah, read that again. That one thing is stopping you from becoming all God has called you to be. The next verse in this chapter goes on to talk about how God Himself created you with His very own hand. He most definitely has good plans for you, my friend.
Do you want all He has for you? It’s time to stop running. Do you want to grow and Excel? It’s time to surrender it all…everything. Yes, even that thing. He sees it anyway. He knows it’s there. Open your hand.

Lord, I don’t want to live with my fists clenched tightly holding to what I think is mine. I want everything You have for me. I want to be the person You created me to be. So, this morning, I hand over _______________. It’s Yours. Today, I stop running and hiding. I know that wherever I go you are there, there is no hiding from You. So I step out into full view today, God. I’m fully Yours. Make me what you created me to be. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Be Still –
now just sit quietly with God, think about the scripture you read, re-read it if need be. Spend the rest of the 15 minutes just being with God
