How to yield yourself to God

Daily Thought

Your Word for 19 April 2024

Hebrews 4:16
‘So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.’

Joy of YieldingI have led people in worship for many years. I have seen that some people seem to enter in and give themselves to God with such ease, while others find it difficult.  But over the years I have learnt that it is not that difficult. It just takes a little time and the conscious presenting, offering and yielding ourselves to God.
We should yield, offer and surrender ourselves to God and offer and yield every part of our lives to Him.  I believe that it is something we can do every day. I believe it is something we can do when a moment in time presents an opportunity to do just this.  I believe we can do it right now.
Here are some simple steps: I often like to close my eyes so that things do not distract me and often I will lift my hands as a sign of surrender.

  1. Take a moment to be still and quiet. The Bible tells us to ‘Be still, and know that I am God!’ (Psalm 46:10)
  2. Confess any wrong in your life that you are aware of. The Bibles tells us that: ‘If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.’ (1 John 1:9)
  3. Consciously yield yourself to God. Give Him every area of your life. Give Him every talent and ability and give Him your very body. For the Bible says: ‘Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.’ (Romans 12:1) Spend a moment doing just this. Don’t rush it.
  4. Begin to receive from God. The Bible tells us: ‘No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.’ (Psalm 84:11)
  5. Thank Him for what He is doing in your heart and life right now.

If we will just do this, God will respond and come and touch our lives and reveal more of Himself to us.  You have nothing to lose. Step out and discover the joy of yielding to Him.  It is always worth it!
