Give It Up?

Picture it, you graduate college and you have your entire life planned out.  You have applied to the company of your dreams for employment.  You are about to marry the person of your dreams and you are deeply in love.  And then God shows up and changes everything…. Could you deal with that?

This was Mary’s answer;

Luke 1:38“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be to me as you have said.” Then the angel left her.

Here is Paul’s answer;

Acts 22:10“‘What shall I do, Lord?’ I asked.
“‘Get up,’ the Lord said, ‘and go into Damascus. There you will be told all that you have been assigned to do.’ 11My companions led me by the hand into Damascus, because the brilliance of the light had blinded me.

This is Jesus answer;

Matthew 26:39Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”

You say that you’re not like Jesus, Mary or Paul but you have the Spirit of God within you.

Can you put God ahead of you will and your desires?  Can you put God first and not just in acknowledgments but as supreme rulers, Lord and author of your life?  Can you be satisfied in Christ completely?  Or do you require things to be satisfied and add God for the hard times?
