2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
When we give it to God, He can perfect those things with His strength. What good is a beautiful, well landscaped house if everything on the inside is broken and not working properly? Jesus wants to come in and fix your electric and plumbing! He wants to repair the flood damage and rewire the wires that have been causing fires. Nothing is too hidden from God and no repair is too big. It is never too late. When we surrender it all to God, it gives Him the working permit that He needs to do the work. He won’t come in without permission. Saying yes to Him is like winning that dream house makeover that you’ve always wanted. Our body, souls, and spirits need to be surrendered to Him so that He can align them with His word and we can see all the benefits of the cross.
Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
God wants to clean our hearts out and renew us! Victory is ours, deliverance is ours, healing is ours, but we need to empty out our bags and let him throw out the garbage and organize the things that are out of place.
Father, we thank You that You are our deliverer. That Your desire is to clean us and make us whole. We surrender all those hidden hurts to You and ask You to come in and make us new. Align our perceptions with Your word. Help us not filter things through our hurts but through Your love. Free us from the baggage that has been causing us to not function properly. We want to be clean from the inside out. Get rid of our walls and masks. Beautify us with Your Glory. Forgive us for hoarding our hurts and causing unforgiveness to build up in our hearts. Show us how to give everything to you so that we may respond properly to every situation. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
