How We Bind God

Let us rely solely upon his fatherly care; let us surrender ourselves to it utterly for all our temporal and spiritual and even our eternal welfare. For such is true and complete self-abandonment, that binds God to take charge of everything in regard to those who abandon everything to him, thus paying homage to his sovereign dominion, his power, his wisdom, his goodness, his mercy and all his infinite perfections. Amen, Amen. -from Self-Abandonment to Divine Providence, pg 303 (emphasis mine)

We “bind God to take charge of everything” in our lives when we completely and utterly abandon ourselves to him.  He is so generous with his help when we surrender that we cannot help but want to give back all that and more, if he would but allow it.
