Surrendering ALL

“Love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.” – Deuteronomy 6:5 

In the timeless message of Deuteronomy 6:5, the Lord speaks to us today with a resounding truth: He desires and requires a love that is complete, undivided, and wholehearted. The challenge laid before us is profound—God is not satisfied with an incomplete love. He doesn’t want a fraction of your heart, a portion of your soul, or some of your strength. No, He wants ALL of it! 

Real love, from God’s vantage point, is not compartmentalized or reserved. It’s a love that demands the entirety of our being. When we ponder the love that God desires and requires, it becomes evident—it’s a complete love where God gets ALL of us. This is the essence of true, transformative love. 

So, let me ask you today: Does God have ALL of you? Does He possess the entirety of your heart, soul, and strength? The Lord’s desire is not for a partial commitment or a lukewarm affection; He longs for a love that is all-encompassing and all-inclusive. 

In a world where our love is often fragmented and divided, God stands as a beacon of wholeness and completeness. His call is not to a superficial love but to a love that permeates every corner of our existence. It’s a love that defines our priorities, directs our actions, and consumes our affections. 

As you reflect on these words, consider the depth of your love for God. Are there areas of your heart that remain untouched by His love? Are there aspects of your soul that are yet to be surrendered to Him? God’s invitation is clear: Love Him completely. 

Today, let this be your prayer: Lord, take ALL of me. May every beat of my heart, every thought of my soul, and every ounce of my strength be devoted to loving You completely. In surrendering ALL to Him, you will find the joy and fulfillment that come from a love that knows no bounds. 

Take a moment to examine your heart and life. Is there any area where your love for God is incomplete or divided? Surrender those areas to Him today. Let your prayer be one of complete surrender, offering ALL of your heart, ALL of your soul, and ALL of your strength to the One who deserves your wholehearted devotion.
