Song: Surrender All – Planetshakers
This life is but for a moment, a blink of an eye compared to the eternal time frame that is operating up in heaven. We will spend the rest of eternity with God and Jesus once we enter into heaven.
Do you I want to work for myself and the small rewards that I can get down here that will all perish the minute I die and cross over – or do you want to work for God the Father, do His perfect will for my life, accomplish what He wants me to accomplish in this life, and then receive His full and final just rewards that will last forever once I enter into heaven?
Only God knows what you were really created to be in this life. Only God knows what you would really be best at. Only God knows what your true divine calling should be in this life. Only God knows who you should marry and what jobs you should be taking in this life.
And since God is all-powerful and there is nothing that He cannot do or accomplish – then this means He can also anoint you with His divine power for whatever He will be calling you to do for Him in this life.
So not only do you get God’s perfect knowledge and wisdom guiding you in this life as to exactly what you should be striving for – but you will also have His divine power flowing through you so that you can be very good at the jobs and tasks that He will be calling you to do for Him.
Bottom line – you have to look at the real “big picture.” The real big picture is not only what happens in this life, but also what happens in the next life. The next life in heaven is nothing but a continuation of this life that we are living down here on this earth. But there is one main difference. This life on earth is but for a very short period of time. The life we will be living up in heaven will be forever – with no more crossovers into any other realms.
Once you are willing to completely surrender your entire life over to the God the Father for Him to fully handle, then what will happen next is that God will be setting you up to follow the specific path that He will want you to follow in Him – and in that path will be your call, your purpose, your duties, and the tasks that you will now be seeking to accomplish for Him. God now has a set plan and a set future for your life.
No matter what age you are, it is never too late to come into this full surrender with God. Look at what happened in the story of Moses. He was 80 years old when God called him out to rescue the Jewish people. This one man helped to change the entire course of Jewish history because He was willing to enter into God’s perfect will and plan for his life and follow it all the way through until the mission was fully accomplished – and this was all done over the last 40 years of his life, from the age of 80 till the age of 120.
If you have been running your own life over all of these years with no real fruit, with no real sense of accomplishment or worth – try giving the Lord a chance. He may just blow you away with what He may have in store for you if you are willing to come into this full surrender with Him.
