Whether you’re starting your journey with God or if you’re in the middle of it, it’s important to remember the reasons why we must wholeheartedly accept the Lord and His plan for our lives.

Salvation is a gift from God given to us just because He loves us so much; it is not a result of our good actions or anything remarkable that we have done. We must repent for our sins, acknowledge Jesus as God’s Son and Savior, and accept Him as Lord of our life. We receive salvation and eternal life in doing so.

Trust is free from external factors. It is based on a knowledge of God’s nature.

We must learn to be patient. We must remember that God’s timing is perfect, and we would not want to go outside of His will or timing.

Learning to endure is necessary for accepting God’s plan. The result of acceptance is pure perseverance in the face of overwhelming difficulties. God will give us the strength to persevere if we believe in Him and submit to His will.

Accepting His plan ultimately entails our complete submission to Him. As we surrender our will and acknowledge that the creation does not know more than the Creator, God transforms us.
