I Have a Prize for You by: Debra Courtney

“I will give your life to you as a prize in all places, wherever you go.” Jeremiah 45:5

This is the firm and immovable secret of the Lord to those who trust Him – “I will give your life to you…” What more does a person want than their life! It is the essential thing “… your life… as a prize…” means that wherever you may go, you will come out with your life and nothing can harm it.

I as so many of us are caught up in exhibiting things for others to see, not showing off property of possessions, but our blessings. All these things that we so proudly show have to go. But there is something greater that can never go – the life that “is hidden with Christ in God.” Colossians 3:3. It is a life long journey this life hidden in Christ.

Are we really prepared to let God take us into total oneness with Himself, paying no more attention to what we call the great things of life? Are we prepared to surrender totally and let go? The true test of or surrender is in refusing to say, “Well, what about this?” The moment we allow ourselves to think “What about this?” we show that we have not surrendered and that we do not really trust God with the circumstances of our life.

However, once we do surrender, we will no longer think about what God is going to do. What He does is always in our best interest. Surrender means to refuse ourselves the luxury of asking any questions. If we totally surrender ourselves to God, He immediately says to us, “I will give your life to you as a prize…” The way we get out of that condition is to surrender ourselves to God. Once we get to the point of total surrender to Him, we will be the most delighted and surprised person on earth.

God will have you absolutely, without any limitations, and He will have given you your life. 

It is a life without and beyond limits!

Debra’s life goal is to inspire and motivate women globally to become all they have been created and designed to be by using the guiding principles of their Creator’s word in gaining wisdom, understanding their designed-given personality identities & create their purpose!
