Fullness of Joy

Topics: Surrender

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: The Bible calls us to surrender our lives to God, but sometimes we hold back, worried about what we might have to give up.

Woman: Sometimes I feel like if I do what God wants, I won’t have any time for fun.

Nancy: The problem is, the things we want to hold on to don’t really satisfy.

Woman: I didn't get anything done today!

Man: I’ll give myself to God—as long as I don’t have to give up drinking.

Nancy: We want freedom to do what we want, but sometimes that just puts us in greater bondage.

Man: Everyone keeps telling me I have a problem with alcohol.

Nancy: Nothing can satisfy our hearts like God Himself. Surrendering to Him could mean giving up some of those things that don’t really satisfy. But is that so bad?

As the psalmist said, “You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

Are you working in your own strength for things that don’t really satisfy? Or are you trusting God to give you life's richest pleasures?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
