Today I will “trade my will, self, and desires for your rest, sufficiency, and fellowship.” I will trade the vexing problems of today, the long term worries of tomorrow, and the unknown of eternity for your immediate, constant, and limitless love, companionship and friendship. This is surrender-walking with Jesus. Why would I wish to take on unnecessary burdens and reject relief?
Come unto me…
1 Peter 5:6-7
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God [set aside self-righteous pride], so that He may exalt you [to a place of honor in His service] at the appropriate time, casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].
Today I will trade what is unnecessary and unfulfilling for the great gifts that await at God’s altar.
