As I started my devotions this morning I was asking Jesus what He wanted me to know today? It was as though He were right here saying it is time for me to trust His Holy Spirit. In trusting Him, I needed to heed His every call and surrender anything which would hinder me from surrendering something. His Words were: “Let Him have His Way with thee”. Those words bought to memory the old hymn I hadn’t heard since my teen/college years. They are:

Let Him Have His Way With Thee

  1. Would you live for Jesus, and be always pure and good?
    Would you walk with Him within the narrow road?
    Would you have Him bear your burden, carry all your load?
    Let Him have His way with thee.
    • Refrain:
      His pow’r can make you what you ought to be;
      His blood can cleanse your heart and make you free;
      His love can fill your soul, and you will see
      ’Twas best for Him to have His way with thee.
  2. Would you have Him make you free, and follow at His call?
    Would you know the peace that comes by giving all?
    Would you have Him save you, so that you need never fall?
    Let Him have His way with thee.
  3. Would you in His kingdom find a place of constant rest?
    Would you prove Him true in providential test?
    Would you in His service labor always at your best?
    Let Him have His way with thee.

As I did my scripture reading God was having Ezekiel tell the Israelites one more time about Him giving them a “new heart” in Ezekiel 36: 26-27. With all God’s work of late I truly related to Joyce Meyers comments: “…The new heart God gives is one that desires to love and be involved with people….” “…God gives us His Spirit and only because of His Spirit within us can we obey God and His Word. The Holy Spirit, Who dwells in us, strengthens us and enables us to do the will of God….”

As the journey continues with Jesus at the helm, surrender grows and the desire to surrender all grows greater and greater because Trusting and Believing are no longer Hope, but Truths.
