“We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose.”
-Romans 8:28 (RSV)
In moments of trial, we are called to “conformity of total surrender” as we ardently embrace our suffering and cast ourselves with complete abandon into God’s arms of love. This is submission to God’s permissive will, a submission not marked by resignation or futility, but rather, a proactive submission that is undergirded with faith, reinforced with trust, and informed by knowledge and wisdom.
How is God calling you to total surrender at this point in your life? What is He calling you to surrender to Him?
