“Words like surrender and submit can leave a bad taste in our mouth. We look at those words as if we are failures, quitters, or giving up. Surrender in the right time, the right place and to the right one can also bring peace, hope and a future no longer dependent on our circumstances.”
~Lyndsey Baker

“Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you.” Job 22:21 NIV

This verse in Job says “submit” to God and “be at peace”. It does not say MAYBE “be at peace”. This should give us confidence that when we submit to the Lord, our future is bright. Do you correlate surrendering or submitting with words like failure and giving up? Has God asked you to surrender an outcome to Him or submit to His will in a situation? Did you experience peace afterwards?
