I agree that fear is a huge factor in hindering absolute surrender. The concept seems counter to everything society has taught us. I want to retain some degree of power and control over my life. It is comforting to know, though, that, as the author states, “….God will enable you to carry out the surrender.’ I often find myself saying, “Lord, I believe, help me overcome my unbelief.” I believe the author is telling us that such a step of faith is enough for God to carry us the rest of the way, if we are willing. I think it is an ongoing process to surrender completely to God. I often have to remind myself oh how God’s way has always worked out better than my way.
