People who come to my office for legal advice are often startled when I ask them this question: “What is it that you want the most?” I ask them that question because it is the great challenge which God gives me. Most people respond by saying they just want me solve their current legal hassle and move on. We ALL have a tendency to live our lives just putting out the most raging fires instead of putting the pyromaniac in jail. When what we want MOST is to address the root of ALL of our problems, then we are on the way to living in peace and satisfaction which is not found in money, relationships or power! Is the root of our problem, the bad things people do to us, poor health, tragedy, disaster, financial ruin or any kind of failure? No! It is our heart. When our heart is completely surrendered to Christ then we are kept in HIS PERFECT PEACE and nothing separates us from Him! “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?” (Rom. 8:35) WE are the only one who separates us from Christ–and—WE, alone, decide whether to conform our will to His and find His peace. The problem is that for the most part we don’t WANT to get to the root of the problem—which is our heart—because that means we must surrender our heart to God. Essentially, we do not BELIEVE in the power of God or the immense love He has for us; because if we did, we would desperately surrendering–on a daily basis. This is the promise of Almighty God: “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?” (Rom. 8:31-32) His love draws us to surrender; and then–we possess His PERFECT PEACE by living in His PERFECT WILL. Our problems are easy for Almighty God; it is our heart that is the difficult part for us. Our heart must willingly surrender—daily and hourly—and then, in HIS will we have peace and satisfaction which no trouble and no person can EVER take away.
