“Then the men of Yavesh said [to Nachash], Tomorrow we will surrender to you, and you can do with us whatever you like.”
1 Samuel 11:10 CJB
The only one we should surrender to is God and no one else!
“Those who worship vain idols give up their source of mercy; but I, speaking my thanks aloud, will sacrifice to you; what I have vowed, I will pay. Salvation comes from Adonai!”
Jonah 2:9-10 CJB
When we give up to the world and its trappings we end up like Jonah trapped inside of a big fish! When we give up and give into Adonai we receive His mercy and grace!
“Adonai, don’t withhold your mercy from me. Let your grace and truth preserve me always.”
Psalm 40:11 CJB
Today, don’t give up to the world, but instead give up to Adonai, who will always preserve us in His mercy and grace!
May your day be blessed!
