A month ago, we talked about how the illusion of control causes stress, anger, and anxiety among other things. There is a reason we are told multiple times in the Bible to surrender control to God. One of the side effects of letting go is joy and happiness. This is even physcologically backed up, because we understand better that there are a great deal of things in life that we cannot control, and breaking away from the disillusion frees us from a twisted false reality.
So, we know letting go of control is good for us and we know that God is someone we can trust completely. So what is stopping us from truly surrendering to Him? Because, remember, we aren’t called to surrender some, or even most to God. No, we are called to surrender ALL to God. It is one thing to listen to the GPS and follow it’s directions, another to let someone else take the steering wheel completely! Yet, without true and complete surrender to God, we will never fully experience the soul-comforting peace that only He can give.
