Key: Through the New Testament we could see that Jesus Ministry wasn’t just about healing and preaching, He sought the broken hearted, the lost, the rejected ( John 8:1-1, Matthew 11:28). But before Jesus the Counselor can interfere in our situation, we must be willing to surrender all to Him, and be humble and honest in confession by laying everything at His feet. Then can we get much more from Him and experience divine turnaround. He has been here before, He was also tempted; He knows all we go through and He is willing to offer advice and solutions to our problems.
Prayer Point: Dear Lord, help me to lay everything down and your feet. Walk with me and work through me in every situation I face. Amen.
