Surrender is not about being broken by His will, it is about being made by it as you
trust Him. It is being made whole by what He is doing in you, having nothing to do with your own understanding.
Trust and surrender may not be exactly the same thing, but they work hand in hand to change
your heart and mind, making you just like Him. They are both a choice, and a reaction to Him.
It takes deeply felt love for Him to trust Him and that comes from knowing Him. True surrender is to embrace
Him as you are embraced by Him, fully trusting Him. It is your response to knowing He is Lord of your life as He brings you into Him.
Accepting what He is doing in your life is your heart's response to
Him, and you do this face to face. Your faith is now His power working in you, giving you strength.
Surrender is leaning into Him, letting go of your hurt, your old identity and its thoughts and opinions.
This is knowing you belong with Him, being made whole in His presence and willingly accepting it.
He does this in times of refining that bring deep change and healing. You are a warrior after His heart,
one of peace and great courage, fearless as you trust in His presence. You have let go of the things of this earth to embrace the things of Heaven. You have learned that He did not hurt you, the things of the Earth did, and they are behind you as you walk
A Woman of Deep Surrender
By Kathy Mote
A woman of deep surrender is a woman
of great faith. That is what the Lord said.
The Lord Said
The Lord said most revere their own thinking, but it is worship of self and they walk in a barren and desolate place without Him. It is the jealousy that will
finally get to them, when they see it is others who walk in the Light.
That is actually why they hate you, you who walk in peace, knowing the Truth. They see that you don't walk in the dark yet they don't
see that is where they are. It is jealousy pure and simple, and it causes them great hurt. That is what will bring them around.
The Lord said, I will heal them all. Just watch. I will have My way.
Lord Sang Me A Song
By Kathy Mote
The Lord sang me a song about what He is doing in the earth. It wasn't about the devil who wars against
Him, the devil reveals the evil inherent in every heart that is without Him. This song was about Christ rising, being seen by all, not just those known to Him. In it He declared He was Heaven's Champion, bringing everyone's heart in from the dark.
As He sang, I saw the wicked, twisting and turning where they were in the dark. He said, They don't die easy. The pride in them goes down hard. He said, I am a great Light sent to them, and I do not fail. My love will
be seen in them all. I am Heaven's Dread Champion, and I will win them all by the time I am through. I will bring them all to the Truth.
I can still hear it, its melody strong and true. The words set my
heart to soaring, giving me a different view of the world. He sang of those in darkness, those who don't know of His love. Those who fight not to bow to Him, thinking He is the end of their freedom.
Well, well, well, they don't die easy. Well, well, well, they don't die young. Well, well, well, they go down hard, each of them fighting to the end of themself.
Then I hear
the angels sing, Jesus is their dying day that they might live.
