Surrender to Love

Struggles are a normal part of the Christian experience. Everyone struggles with God from time to time. But it's one thing to struggle with God and another thing to struggle against God. Struggling with God means we're honest about our frustrations and we work them out together with God. But struggling against God means that some part of us just wants God out of the way. It is rooted in doubt about whether God is really good, whether He can really be trusted. God invites us to take this kind of struggle and turn it into surrender. Because Jesus knows about the doubts and fears we face, he went out of his way to demonstrate his extravagant love for us, and to invite us to surrender to his love.
