“I give you my all”. That is a statement of trust beyond understanding. To look at it naturally you may say that in giving your all to someone in relationship or dedicated service. But how about if you look at it spiritually? Saying to the Most High “I give You my all” should mean the same. The trouble is it is harder for us to give our all to our Lord then it is to a human who will fail us. I wonder why. I believe it must do with our faith. The Bible gives us many examples of people doubting what God said He would do for them and through them. But it also shows Him doing what He said anyway. Numbers 23:19 says “God is not a man that he should lie, neither is he the son of man that he should repent. Has he said and will He not do it? Or has he spoken and He will not make it good? “ See He keeps His word. Especially the word He speaks to and over us.
An example of faith even when doubting is this Mark 9:24. It tells of a Dad who reaches out to Jesus because his son was being tormented by demons. The scripture states “Immediately the father of the child cried out and said “I believe; help my unbelief!” He knew that Christ could do what he needed, but could not fully grasps how or why. Instead of him saying I believe untruthfully he added but I ask you to help me with my doubt. Jesus was moved by his honesty and delivered the man’s son from the torment. Thus, the man gave his all even when he had to desperately trust a man he didn’t know fully. He poured out his issue knew God could do what he could not if he believed and allowed Him to.
Giving your all to the Creator of everything in the Earth and under the Earth is truly a sacrifice for our human nature. We have been taught to do things for ourselves and if we don’t we are not worth much. Or we are weak to be dependent and not independent. But the ultimate goal of the cross of the Christ was to bring us (humans) back to oneness with our Creator. Through a relationship with His Son Jesus and allowing His Spirit to live in us. John 3:16 states “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” Our plans are nothing compared to His plans for us. He wants us to have a great life full of everything good! We should give Him what He gave us a life. Not losing anything but gaining everything. Jesus came to give us a life full of abundance in every area of life (see John 10:10).
Trust me I know it may be hard at first but if you try daily to just submit a little more of yourself daily to His will and plan it will be worth it. Remember coal is not looked at as precious and worth much until it has gone through extreme pressure. And God made you even more a precious jewel than diamonds! Give Him your all today. He has already given you His best.
