Power in Surrender
When Jesus appeared to his disciples after His resurrection, he said these words in Luke 24:49 "And behold, I am sending forth the promise of My Father upon you; but you are to stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high" But have you ever wondered, "where is the power?" Where's the power to forgive? Where's the power to rise above? Where's the power to overcome that sin that so easily entangles you? Listen, when you and I experience power failures, the problem is never with God. It is always with us. We are trying to live the Christian life in our own strength and that never works. As believers in the Lord Jesus, we have been given the Holy Spirit of God. Now our job is simply to surrender to Him each and every day. It is in surrender where you will find power...and real hope.
