Be it unto me: A surrender of Fate in Faith
Luke 1:38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
The biggest struggle between God and man has always been man fully accepting that which God has said. Man has always struggled with out rightly believing God for who He and also for what He is capable of.
Somehow man has agreed with the fact that God can do everything and anything, but man has not come into fully believing and accepting that assertion. We say something with the mouth, we do something else in the mind.
So, one of the pre-requisite for faith is “he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” And this will empower to have Faith such that you’ll please God. Heb.11:6
Faith is saying to the Lord, “be it unto me according to your word”. This simply means that you have surrendered the input, the process and the outcome unto the Lord. It’s not for you to influence again but have totally allowed God the full authority to determine how it will all pan out.
Many of us claim faith, yet we like to influence the result. We like to modify His words. We like to modify the process. We also like to modify the eventual outcome. We therefore end up as modified failures rather than dignified success.
Everytime we do not take His words as it is, we end up destroying ourselves. Our world is far apart from His world. When He speaks, He speaks with ages of wisdom far above our mental understanding, yet we choose to depend more often on our limited corruptible minds and this usually brings us back to ZERO level.
If only you can surrender all dominion to Him today, you’ll begin to experience dominion in all your ways. Dominion means ‘to exercise absolute, total or complete authority’. The intention of God for is to have ‘absolute dominion’ over all areas of your life and that can only happen if you say unto Him ‘Be it unto me according to your word’.
It’s time you surrendered all to Him. Don’t hold anything back. Release yourself to His dominion. Let Him take full charge of your life, that you may take full charge of all areas of life. God bless you. Continue in God’s blessing.
