“Surrender your desires. Surrender what you want to see happen. Surrender your plans, your ideals, your dreams and visions. Bring them to the altar.
Your imaginations breed life-giving transformation as a canvas I paint upon to bring about change and strategy. They are a blank page where I write my story, so bring them to me and allow me to break down what you want to see.
Let me show you what I want to see. Bring forth that idealistic plan of yours, or even your idea of realistic, and let me show you the age-defying, resource-defying, possibility-defying ideas. Let me take you on a journey. Let’s spend time together mapping out a business, a market, a lesson plan, or a creative project.”
Spend time today with God, laying down piece by piece your desires and dreams before Him. He wants to mould them, refine them and bless them!
Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship.
