Give Up To Go Up
“For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of Him who sent me.” John 6:38
Sometimes you have to be willing to sacrifice to go to the next level God is calling you to. Jesus was with God from the very beginning. He left heaven to come down and sacrifice for us, so that we could be saved. Often, God calls us to step out of the familiar as well. But the sacrifice is never meaningless. When we’re willing to surrender to God’s will, He’s able to use us in ways we often can’t imagine and continue to grow us into the people He’s called us to be.
What is God asking you to give up right now? Maybe it’s a hobby, a relationship, a job, or even a place that you’re living. Don’t be afraid to let go of even good things when God asks you to.
Lord, I surrender ________ to you. I don’t want to hold anything back from you. Even though I’m afraid of letting this go, I choose today to step out in faith and follow where you’re leading me. Amen.
