Why Hold Back Giving God Are All?

As I come out of the weeks with answered prayers, I am fully seeing how God works when you give Him “your all”! It truly is an amazing site.

I dig deep and think why didn’t I “give” Him my “all” along time ago. Just what was it, I was afraid of?

I believe it to be lack of faith on my part sometimes. Myself getting in the way because God is not moving fast enough or that I think I can do it better.

As write those words down I feel convicted because I am saying them about the Maker of the World, the one who loved me SO much that He sent His only Son to die for ME, the one that gives me grace when I don’t deserve it, the one who forgives me every single time I FALL, the one who tells me to have FAITH in Him, that He will not forsake me or leave me.

Then I remember, SIN is in the world and I am still walking in my flesh.

I then run to the cross and confess my sins so that the Lord may cleanse me of all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). Soaking in the fact that NO matter how many times I fall, He will always be there to catch me and put me back on track.

Looking at every situation as a part of “Your Journey” and trusting in the fact that the Lords plan to prosper you and not harm you, so that we may have a future (Jeremiah 29:11), tends to make more sense.

WHY, do we hold back from giving are ALL to God?

Here are a few reasons that I came up with. You might relate and you might not however when we get down to the “real” reason why we hold back are “all” from God, we can get out of His way and stop hindering Him from working our plans out to His glory.

  • Fear
  • Wanting a different end
  • Not ready for His answer
  • Insecurities¬†
  • Lack of Faith
  • Feeling like you could do it better
  • Pride
  • Sin of the flesh


As I die to self every single day asking the Lord to show me daily how to Love like Him, See the world like Him, Show grace like Him, I am reminded that I am a work in progress.

He takes me bit by bit and transforms me into what He has called me to be, for His glory. Knowing that there are parts of me that I have held back from Him, He continues to show me His grace so that I can receive His plans for me.

What a wonderful reminder to know that even though I am working hard to give Him MY ALL, He is working on me in His timing to bring me there gracefully.

And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. Phil 1:6
