“You have longed for sweet peace,
And for faith to increase,
And have earnestly, fervently prayed;
But you cannot have rest,
Or be perfectly blessed,
Until all on the altar is laid.
Is your all on the altar of sacrifice laid?
Your heart does the Spirit control?
You can only be blessed,
And have peace and sweet rest,
As you yield Him your body and soul.”
Do I really need to write anything after that? Not submitting areas of your life to Jesus makes you think you must deal with them yourself. You can’t manage your life; only Christ can do that. Trying to do so leaves you weak, stressed, and confused. Does God have ALL of you? Your level of peace will be your answer.
