Surrender the key?



Surrender the keys? F.B. Meyer, renowned Christian author, found success as a pastor but felt lacking compared to other preachers he knew. Observing their daily joy, and power, Meyer sought counsel. A friend’s response was simple: "Have you given your keys to God?"


Think about it. Life holds hidden barriers within. "Lord, all is Yours," we say, but one sanctuary we withhold. The key to that perhaps hidden away. Does God want that one?      


God’s Word tells us: “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting (Psalm 139:23-24).”


Meyer sensed a reluctance to yield to God in his heart. Alone in his room, he prayed, confronting a seemingly insignificant obstacle blocking his path to triumph. Throughout the night, he grappled with God who was unwilling to let him go, until he was compelled, reaching a decisive moment of surrender, he surrendered the one key God wanted. Himself.


We pray. “Heavenly Father, I confess my reluctance to fully yield to You. May I confront obstacles hindering me. Sometimes I wrestle with You, unwilling to let go, until compelled to surrender all, giving You the key You desire: myself. In Jesus name. Amen!”


“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)
