Dear Heavenly Father,
I hear your precious son – Jesus gently calling me, yet I realize I’ve let the temptation of control keep me from responding to His voice. Forgive me for trying to do things on my own when I know Your ways are best. I surrender to Jesus today.
Thank You for sending the Holy Spirit to draw me back to You in those times when I have relied on my own strength. Your Word in John 14:26 says, “But The Advocate, The Holy Spirit, Whom The Father will send in My name, will teach you ALL things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” Thank You for reminding me that if I want to follow Jesus, I need to release my own way.
I have felt Your Holy Spirit tugging at my heart. So I am laying down my own plans, desires, and goals. I replace those right now with total surrender to Your will. I am grateful for the guidance of The Holy Spirit and that Jesus never stops pursuing a deeper relationship with me.
Your will be done in my life, Lord. I will follow where you lead me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
