I surrender and I win surrender to victory surrender to win those two statements. Surrender andvictory are opposed to each other theyre. The apineme of irony talk aboutparadox in a battle. How can surrender be Awin? How can surrender bring victory?...

Obviously, in the realm of the flesh,it cannot simply put in a material world tosurrender is to lose, however, in God's economy, in the realm of the spiritualand the realm of God, surrender to God always brings pictory when we surrender to God, we Wen we'll see throughout the devotion thisyear. Scripture is full of paradox, and here is one we must surrender in orderto live. We must surrender in order to gain victory. Jacob would come tounderstand this in his life. We're continuainly looking at Jacob andtoday will be in genesis chapter thirty, five versus nine through twelve. Youmight want to turn there as we study were reading. Our daily reading wasgenesis, thirty three through thirty...

...six, and we see that Jacob Man esl andthere was a blessing between the two of the Oman. God just bless that meetingthere we see that Dina was rate of one of Jacob's daughters and Sendian andLebi. The brothers Todina actually murderd an entire village because ofthat and we'll see that God would ultimately bring consequences for them. But then,today, in the text, we see that God blesses Jacob as he returns to BethelBethel. Meaning is the House of God. That was the first place that Jacobexperienced God. That was where Jacob had the dream, from God of the angelsand the Stairway to heaven going up and down. That's Bethel Jacob's back atBethell now and we're going to see here and Bethel that God blesseth Jacob. Infact, in chapter thirty, five versus...

...nine thre, Twelve and God appeared Unde Jacob again when he came out of the Dana Ram andBlestein, and God said to him. Thy Name is Jacob. THY name shall not be calledjencop anymore, but Israel shall be thy name e called his name, Israel and Godsaid to him. I have got Almighty, be fruitful and multiply an Asian and acompany of Nations shall be of thee and kings shall come out of thy Loins the land which I gave Abraham and Isaacto thee. I will bless it end to thy seed after thee. I will givethe LAN verselevenit says, and King shall comeout of thy loids. The word Gins here is a Hebrew term.PRONOUNCE CA lots. It literally means the seat of strength.

Thus King James translated loins othertranslators so as not to lose the impetus of the blessing simply statekings shall come from you. However, I do not believe it iscoincidental that the very area that God touched that Hipfloyd area is thesame area which would be used to produce kings without making too much of an inference.It is still worth noting the common physical location of the touch of God and the blessing of God. It is certainly biblical andtheologically accurate to maintain that the areas our lives which are mosttouched by God, are the areas most blest and used by God, and the areas which are Bot touched byGod...

...are the areas which we surrender to God. Thus the area is most surrendered. Arethe areas most blesse? Certainly surrender hearts surrender is painful, but the blessings are far greater to give up to surrender one's pride to surrenderone's position to surrender one's life. That's painful! That's hard e, going down life, doing what we wantto do, and then God says I want you to give that up and we're like WOA. That'shard, that's difficult! Yes, surrender is painful, but that pain is not worthy to becompared to the blessings in our lives that God wants to bring, and so the burning question for us to day heis...

...which areas of my life are not fully surrendered to. God is my love life fully surrender to God is my job. Is it fully surrendered to God? How about my home are our homes fully surrendered to God about Our Future? Is your future fully surrender to God,or do you have your own dreams, dehave? What you want to do you say Al Righ,God you can have my life. You can have my home. You can have my family butleave my dreams alone, I'm not giving you my dreams. These are my dreams.I've had these dreams of what I want to be and what I want to do since I wassix seven, eight ten twelve years old God leave my dreams alone,...

...or are you willing to surrender thatfuture? It's painful is my health fully surrendered to God,or are you and I still planing to some of those areas refusing to surrenderall of our life to God for fear of losing it? If I surrender Il lose, if I give up my future I'lllose my dreams, my future, if I give up my home I'll, lose if I give up you putit in there, your job, whatever your desires, if you give that up, there's this fearthat in giving it up, you'll lose but Jacob fould that as he surrendered to God, as hesurrendered that life to God, got touchdy and blesting. When you surrender those areas of live.Those areas that are most surrendered...

...to God are the areas most used by God becausetheyare the areas most touched by God. Don't ever forget that if you- and I refuse to surrender at some point- will lose it anyway. aspeaking of paradox and other paradox,as is he who seeks to save his life, shall lose it, but he who loses his life for my sake,that same shall save it. If you hold on to that dream that life nont surrenderto God, you're Don'GT lose it anyway, you might as well surrender to God andinso doing, allow God to touch that area of your life and bless that areaof your life. The only path to victory in God's economy, the only path toblessings,...

...is surrender. The follow up question, of which theanswer is obvious, is do I wont Gid to bless every area of mylife. Yes, which means I must surrender every areaof my life so that God can touch every area of my life so that God can blessevery area of my life and the third and final question, which is not so easilyanswered. Am I willing to surrender all areas of Life Whan't you think about that. For amoment, are you willing to surrender all areasof your life to God, You'e willing to give up to that anger?You've been holding on to you, wanted to give up that lack offorgettness you've been holding Al to be willing to give up those dreams. Areyou willing to surrender all areas of...

...your life, your name, your pride,everything God insures! Take it all. I trust it in your hands and, if you're willing to do that aspainful as it is, God will take it and he'll touch yourlife and he'll bless you. What a wonderful lesson here from thepages of scripture, our rating for to Morrow is going to be genes's chapterthirty, seven through thirty nine, but I want to pray for you again before wego today. Father. Thank you for this wonderfultestimony from the life of Jacob that the area that you touched thatLoin Hiperia was the exact area you use to produce kings. Ta Reminder to us that the areas that you touch in ourlives are the ones that you usesat you...

...tas, always in Jesus Ma. Thank you again for joining us today.
