Giving your everything to God may feel abstract in thought. What does it actually mean? Maybe you have heard the phrase while listening to a worship set or in a sermon or devotional. Ask yourself: are there any parts of my life that I want to avoid giving God access to?
God knows everything about you…
and He is well pleased. There are no mistakes, thoughts, or decisions beyond His knowledge of you. There is also nothing too big for His mercy to cover. Because you are completely known by God, He desires that you come to Him in all aspects of your life. With your heart, your troubles, concerns, joy, and celebrations. Giving your everything to God is really giving yourself in relationship with Him. If you’re married, consider you and your spouse’s connection. They know you intimately, yet it takes effort on your end to maintain your relationship with one another.
Giving your everything starts with the unseen
It is in the daily, present moments of intentional connection that your relationship is strengthened. It is where your satisfaction in and with one another flourishes. This is God’s design for relationships, including with Him. Involving God in every part of your life matters in the unseen moments together. When you choose to praise Him for who He is, when you come to Him, casting your worries and cares, and when you obey His direction for your life. The decisions that only you and the Lord could know about, when you bring Him close, strengthen your relationship. Take a moment to reflect today: are there any elements of my life that I do not regularly seek God’s guidance in? Ask the Holy Spirit to help you surrender all that you are.
1 Peter 5:7 “Cast all your anxieties on Him, for He cares for you”
