Several weeks ago I was driving down the road listening to the radio and heard someone say as part of an interview:
“God doesn’t need our success. He needs our surrender.”
I can’t get this quote out of my brain.
All I know is that it was on KLOVE. I’ve searched and searched to find the story that went with the quote – to no avail. If you know – please tell me! AKA – HEATHER, please help me out here! It was inside the music!!!
It’s this simple.
God doesn’t need Starr to have a blog with a zillion followers.
God doesn’t need Starr to market and sell every house on the face of planet earth.
God doesn’t need Starr to be a New York Times Best-selling author.
God doesn’t need Starr to create a beautiful property for ministry.
Sure, those things are all great. And God could use them in mighty ways.
BUT. And this is a big but…
God only NEEDS one thing from Starr:
Not my will, Yours, Lord.
The book of Job gives us this simple, yet profound, reminder.
Surrender your heart to God, turn to Him in prayer. – Job 11:13 CEV
Lord, show me exactly what it means to surrender to You on this #thirstythursday.
Show me specifics. Teach me. Guide me. Take over my brain and my thoughts. Pour out all of the natural selfishness to succeed and replace with a complete unabandoned surrender to You and You alone.
