Surrender Your Future to God 
By Rick Warren

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV)        

Surrender means leaving the future to God. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths” (ESV). 

What area of your life have you not surrendered to God? Maybe you’ve surrendered the kitchen and the living room. But what about the bedroom of your life? What about the closet and the garage of your life? 

Some of you may not have surrendered your sex life to God. You say, “I know God says sex is only for marriage, but I’m going to do it my way.” That’s why you’re under stress. 

Some of you may not have surrendered your finances to God. You think, “I know God says that I should give the first 10 percent back to him, but I can’t afford to tithe.” And that’s why you’re under stress. 

Some of you may not have surrendered your relationships to God. You say, “I know I should forgive that person who hurt me, but I’m not going to forgive them.” That’s why you’re under stress.

Some of you may not have surrendered a secret sin to God. Or maybe it’s a hurt, habit, or hang-up you haven’t surrendered to God. 

But the most important thing is, have you surrendered your life to Jesus Christ?

Surrender today—and leave the future to God.

Surrender is saying to God, “The war is off. I’m not going to fight you anymore. I want serenity, not stress.”

Aren’t you tired of being at war with God? It’s time to stop fighting. Surrendering to God is the ultimate expression of faith
