Freedom Requires Surrender...

"Then..they will remember me. They will recognize how hurt I am by their unfaithful hearts and lustful eyes...Then at last they will hate themselves for all their detestable sins. They will know that I alone am the Lord and that I was serious when I said I would bring this calamity on them." Ezekiel 6

"The earnest attempt to listen and obey will be rewarded....with the painful discovery of two things. The one is the depth of pride, unwillingness to consider oneself and to be considered nothing, to submit absolutely to God...the other is what utter weakness there is in all our efforts, and also in all our prayers for Gods help to destroy the hideous monster. Blessed is the man who learns to put his hope in God and to persevere" - Andrew Murray, Humility and Exaltation

Why doesn't our sin "hurt" us as it hurts our savior? We should pray that we would see our sin as God, the lover of our soul does. If we did it would break our hearts wide open.

Help me to see how blessed my life

Forgive me my prideful heart

I‘ve been ungrateful, blind to my pride

Before you I humbly pray

Break my heart with my sin

Like I’ve broken yours

Take me in your arms again

And forgive me one more time

Give me ears to hear your voice

Oh God when you draw near

Lord I ask you to change my heart

Forgive me my loveless prayers

Help me to love, hide me in you

I humbly pray

Oh God draw near, oh God draw near

I‘ve tried it my way, I surrender to you

Spirit come fill me, I open to you

I lift up my hands, In surrender to you

Take me o lord ,and hide me in you

I’ve come to the end of myself

Fight. Every. Day.
