This song is a prayer of surrender to Christ. What is surrender? If you look up the word surrender in Webster’s 1828 dictionary, you will find this definition:
“To yield to the power of another; to give or deliver up possession upon compulsion or demand.”
To surrender to Christ means we must yield to Christ – full and completely.
Surrender your mind
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You” (Isaiah 26:3)
“Get your mind on Christ every day, all day long, because the devil is fighting for your soul.” ~ Billy Graham
Surrender your body
“Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16)
Surrender your will
““If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” (Matthew 16:24, Mark 8:34, Luke 9:23)
Will you surrender? Do you hunger and thirst for Christ? Do you know He hears your cries?
I want to know you more. Lord have your way in me. Stir my soul, breathe new life in me. Speak to me. I’m desperate for you Lord. I surrender all – my mind, my body, and my will to you. Amen.
