A Portrait of Surrender

In Habakkuk’s conversation with the Lord, we see a very open and honest dialogue that reveals the prophet’s heart – his doubts and fears and most importantly, his yielding to God’s will. Surrender does not come easily to anyone, yet when we freely surrender to the King of kings, we discover that we can echo Psalm 143:10. “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God! Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground!” Whatever comes in life, our footing will be secure if we surrender to God.
