Discover the Place of Complete Surrender

David and Margaret McCracken

Sitting here looking out across the lawn and the trees on a beautiful spring day, the physical trauma of recent months seems so distant now. I am grateful that the Lord has restored my strength and health and that He has so wonderfully redeemed my time of enforced rest. What was it all about? Oh, I am sure that the devil’s agenda was to sabotage and destroy, but he is not the Lord Director of my life. Father has had His own agenda!

HE clearly spoke to me one morning and said: “I want the rest of your life as a blank sheet of paper.” I was amazed, as I sincerely considered that was the case already. However, over a period of a few weeks He showed me how subtle the nature of our desires can be, and how our view of the future can be influenced by our knowledge of the past.

Finally, I was able to come to a place of complete surrender, with no qualifications attached. What an incredible sense of anticipation then flooded my heart! Father has now given me a very clear commission for the decades ahead. This has necessitated me relinquishing much of what I was doing, in order to embrace the Apostolic/Prophetic responsibilities He has given me. At almost 68 years of age, I am feeling privileged and excited about the future! So grateful.

In order for this to take place, Steve has taken over the executive leadership of the DMM team and organisation. I remain the Apostolic Dad, primary visionary and responsible for the global/nations aspect of our ministry, but everything else is now under Steve’s leadership. Our whole team and I are excited about the obvious mantle that God has placed upon Steve at this time. His leadership is outstanding!

For all of you who prayed and gave in support over my difficult months, I am forever grateful. Friends are a beautiful thing!

In closing, can I encourage each one of you to take some time aside to present yourself afresh before the Lord with your own blank sheet of paper to see what exciting new things He would write upon it for your future. Of one thing I am certain: He has a remarkable and fruitful new era for each one of us, if we dare to embrace it.

Love and God bless,
