Taking control: Your spiritual surrender to challenges outruns logical route!



Enlightened people know that logic wants congruence of goal and strategy therefore do not listen to logic when faced with important decisions.  The spiritual people are more tuned to limitless universe and know the power of surrendering to receive expressed needs.

Logic calls for efficiency.
Logical people are gifted in formulating goals and setting up planned activities towards achieving them.  If you are like me, you will sleep over the plan and revisit it to look for loop holes and collect all appropriate answers that converge to a clear conclusion.  Nonetheless, there are circumstances that defy any logic and the process of finding one will turn into anchors that will not allow you to take any direction.  This is where logical people suffer ineffectiveness regardless of their admirable plans.  The challenge is; we tend to forget that we are spirits all the way therefore logic must never be the determining factor. In other words, it is not possible to have logical answers for spiritual matters. Secondly, we do not have skills to communicate effectively in spiritual realm. Yes, we shout when we are hurting; but often we do not know how to hear nor identify our answered prayers because we tend to package it according to logical expectation.

Being spiritually skilled to communicate and surrender.
It helps to clear the clutter about your own strengths and ability to achieve things you wanted and presented through logical route. The Bible in Psalms 24:1 says: “The earth is the LORD'S, and all it contain, the world, and those who dwell in it.”  When you have a serious situation which defies logic, it is only then that you will turn to God because you know that nothing is impossible with Him. Only when you face dilemma will you surrender to Him, totally depending on His ability. God has His plans about you and nothing is being withheld from you; all He wants is for you to approach Him with expectation of His positive response as follows:

  1. Purpose in your heart what your desire is and the reason for wanting it.  God says you must love Him and others.  Your requests must not be selfish; they must benefit others too.
  2. Believe that you will get what you are asking.  God is not moved by your tears, but your faith in Him; that He is your Provider.
  3. Love and thank Him because you came to ask in faith. God declared that He is jealous and would not want to share His glory with anyone.  This is why He says He does not want a lukewarm believer.  You must know that He loves you and His answer is always positive and much more perfect because basically you do not have the accurate picture of your ideal world; but He does!
  4. He demands positive energy only.  So, as you wait for His respond He advises you to clear your conscience by forgiving those who offended you because you cannot be in contact with Him while you are carrying your negative energy.  He says He will also point your sins and therefore your unworthiness of His attention.
The longest route to reach only part of your plan is through your logical framework.  The shortest and most complete and satisfying is through your spiritual surrender to your Creator who loves you more than you love yourself.  Taking control is seeking the revelation of your spirituality and the power of surrender versus logic. Remember! What you resist, persist! Surrendering is functioning at spiritual real and is the ideal approach to access that which you desire.
