When God calls you, He will equip you. Don’t hesitate to let go and let God. Take courage and just follow His leading - Daily Bible Reflections May 21,2015

SURRENDER
 
... the Lord stood by him and said, “Take courage...” – Acts 23:11
 
       Melissa used to live a very comfortable life. She was young, had a high-paying job, owned the latest gadgets, and had more than P100,000 in her savings account. She served every Sunday in her community. She was well liked by her co-servants and she tithed regularly. She had a great relationship with the Lord.
       But one day, God called her to serve in a greater capacity. After praying hard, she decided to let go of everything and follow the Lord. Her friends thought she was crazy! When they asked her why she gave her money away, she just smiled and said, “God told me to surrender everything to Him. He told me to trust in Him.”
       What many considered was a stupid act was actually an act of bravery. How many of us could do what she had done? She knew that these worldly things would hinder her from truly serving the Lord, so she let go of them, not knowing what the future would bring.
       For many people, “surrender” might mean weakness and cowardice, especially since it means “giving up.” But surrendering to God is probably the bravest thing we could do because it means stepping out of our comfort zones and stepping into “God’s zone.” Karren Renz Seña (karren.s@shepherdsvoice.com.ph)
 
Reflection: When God calls you, He will equip you. Don’t hesitate to let go and let God. Take courage and just follow His leading.
 
Holy Spirit, grant us the gift of courage, so that we may continue to trust God wholeheartedly as we continue to follow His will.
 
Blessed Eugene de Mazenod, bishop, pray for us.
