Just Surrender

Just Surrender

Surrendering seems to be the last thing youd want to do when it comes to your mental health. After all, Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour 1 Peter 5:8 NIV. But there is a place for surrender in the Christian life.

We all have burdensoften these burdens are more than we can bear in our own strength. When we try to handle these things ourselves, we become angry, stressed outeven depressed. But when we instead surrender the issue to God, trust Himand then wait until He makes it clear what to do, we can find a lot of reliefand quickly.

We also need to remember to adjust our attitude toward God: To praise Him, thank Him and love Him from our heart. We cannot do any of these things unless we also trust Him.

We also need to remember to focus on good thingsand not just dwell on problems. The Bible says whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirableif anything is excellent or praiseworthythink about such things Philippians 4:8 NIV.
