You must choose. You can’t do it without Him. He will not do it without you. You must yield.
I heard about a man who was driving out of one of those side roads onto the interstate in a little pick up truck covered with dust. He didn’t slow down, just shot out on the interstate. A great big eighteen wheeler screeched to avoid the truck—causing both to pull off the road to avoid a collision.
The trucker leaned out of the window and said, “Hey, didn’t you see that sign?” He said, “What sign?” The trucker said, “That sign that said, Y-I-E-L-D.” “Oh,” he said, “I opened the window and yield as loud as I could.”
Now, that’s funny, but it proves a point—if you want to gain the victory, you have to yield to Jesus with all of your heart. Romans 6:13 says, “Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.”
