Silent Submission

by ggerhauser

Morning Thought: Our submission to God is not the silent submission of totalitarian and mechanical religion. Instead, it’s a relational submission. It’s even free to question. Your Father is not afraid to hear your complaints, pain and arguments. He is willing to come down to your level and wrestle with you like he did with Jacob. Today, be real with God. “So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak…Then the man said, ‘Let me go, for it is daybreak.’ But Jacob replied, ‘I will not let you go unless you bless me'” (‭Genesis‬ ‭32‬:‭24, 26‬ NIV).
