Joe Del Grande

As I began reading the chapter, I realized that I am not 100% surrendered to God in 100% of the areas of my life. And that made me feel hopeless, but then Andrew Murray reminded me that I need to look away for myself and put my focus on God.

I like what he says on the bottom of page 11. Oh, God, I accept your terms, and I have pleaded for blessing on myself and others. I have excepted your terms of absolute surrender. I am reminded that God is present and takes note of my surrender. He writes it down in his book and at that very moment takes possession of me. I may not always feel it or realize it, but God takes possession of me when I trust him. He can use my weak and imperfect surrender to accomplish His will in my life.
