S3 E2: Whole New Year - Surrender - How to Win the War
Show Notes

In S3E2 of the SheRecovery Podcast, you'll hear from Crystal Renaud Day along with her mom and special guest Gina Renaud as they walk through 90 Days to Wholeness™ recovery devotional in our Whole New Year series. In this episode, they continue their 3-part discussion on the topic of Surrender.

Last week they discussed Surrender as a need to stop trying to be the boss because we do not have the power to change on our own. We acknowledged our need for spiritual assistance. This week, they discuss Surrender as term used in warfare or battle. 

You are probably unaware, but war was declared on us while we were in our mother’s womb. The devil (enemy) has hated us from the very beginning because he hates God and we are image-bearers of God! Now that you are making a decision to leave your harmful ways behind, you may have noticed a fight has begun.

Hopefully, you have begun to turn to God as you are learning to surrender to the most benevolent, but powerful Being ever. At times you are still going to encounter the devil, and old habits will try to entice you again. You will need to fill up your spirit with the word of God to gain victory. By surrendering to God, He gives you power, armor, and weapons which are supernatural to fight and win.
