Word for Today by Pastor Faith Oyedepo “Yielding Yourself To God”.
“…But yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.” -Romans 6:13-
Personally, God has enabled me to be able to perform certain tasks that I never thought possible, through the Pastor’s wife platform. For instance, speaking to a large audience was an initial challenge. However, today, to the glory of God, even though I am not there yet, I am better than I used to be.
I yielded myself to God, relied on His strength, and He has helped me be the woman that I am today. There are certain things you also have thought you would never be able to do, certain places you have dreamt of but that feel it can only be but a dream. God is able to make happen for you, even more than your thoughts (I Corinthians 2: 9), if only you yield to Him.
That dream is not as difficult or impossible as it seems. Trust me, it is achievable! You can become better and sharper at that ability than you never thought you would be. Your complete surrender to God’s will brings out potentials you never thought existed in you. When that happens, you become a great asset to your family and the world at large.
Remember, self reduces as God increases in you. Your imperfections are being perfected through God’s transferable strength in His Word. This is because when you behold Him daily, surrendering totally to Him, He transforms you and makes everything about you beautiful, just as it was in the beginning. Try Him today!
The first step to living your life for God is to accept Jesus into your life. He alone can make all the difference in the decisions you are required to make. If you will like to do this, please say this prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today as a sinner. I believe You died for my sins and rose on the third day. Forgive me of my sins. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today.
