Cape Cod Sacred Assembly prepartion, Day 4
 

 " If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves, and
pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will
hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and heal their
land" 2 Chron 7:14

Day 4 - A Life Surrendered

"I have not come to do my own will but that of the Father."
(John 6:38)

Jesus lived a life of humility before the Father. He knew that He
could do nothing of himself (John 5:19). "I can of my own self do
nothing … I seek not my own will" (John 5:30). Jesus said "I do not
receive glory from men" (John 5:41). He said "I do nothing of
myself" (John 8:28). "I seek not my own glory" (John 8:50). "The words
that I speak are not from myself" (John 14:10).

Jesus emptied Himself of His divine prerogatives as eternal deity and
became a servant so that God might be all. His life was one of
absolute submission, trust, and dependence on the Father. In the end,
Jesus lost nothing by giving everything to God. He humbled himself,
and God exalted Him. Jesus' humility was surrendering Himself entirely
to God. He allowed the Father to do in Him and with Him what He
pleased.

Prayer Points:

Forgive me for not trusting You with my life. I repent for trying to
control my own life.
Teach me how to surrender myself, my family, my ministry, my finances,
and the most important things in my heart to You.
I repent for my own personal ambitions, agendas, motives, fears
