SUBMIT YOURSELF TO GOD


So submit to [the authority of] God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him] and he will flee from you.

James 4:7 (Amplified Bible)


 
The word ‘submission’ has been a “No…No” word for most people today.
 
There are some of these people who grew in homes where love wasn’t expressed. They saw their frustrated parents as tyrants. Some were forced to submit under strict ungodly rules and authorities in their schools or work places.
Others became victims of bullies who forced them to do things against their own will.
The wicked structure of the world has given people wrong impression about submission. They think submission is preached in Church, just to control people and force them to do things against their will.
 
They have equated submission to fear and oppression. The adversary has succeeded in making people feel God has no good plans for them. Thus, submitting to God is never going to bring them to an expected glorious end.
 
This has always been the strategy of the enemy. These were the same seeds he sowed in the hearts of Adam, and generated unbelief.
 
God has a beautiful plan for your life. And submitting to God, is submitting to a loving father.
If you can submit yourself to a pilot in a plane, then you should submit to God who made the universe.
Submission to God, is bringing yourself under His influence and authority. It is yielding to His will for your life.
 
Someone will say, “I said it, he wants me to submit to God against my will. Apostle is writing this to tell me to put my will aside and accept the will of God”.
 
Interesting, what is your will?
 
Your will wasn’t conditioned to function without God. A man’s will is cultivated by his environment. Which means your will is always submitted to something.  And here, I am helping you find a better expression of your will.
Until you submit your will to the Lord, you cannot live according to God’s original glorious design for you.
Submission to God is a sign of a matured life in Christ.
 
A man who is submissive to God, walks in the obedience of God’s word. The word of God becomes the light and arrangement of his thoughts and actions.
 
A man who is submitted to God, cannot be controlled by the flesh and the world. Such a person exercises authority over the devil.
 
So submit to [the authority of] God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him] and he will flee from you. James 4:7.
 
To submit to God is the enjoyment of grace, direction and divine elevation.
 
Shalom.

DIG DEEPER:
(James 4:1-7,10,13-15; 1 Peter 5:5-6; Job 36:22)
 
WE PRAY
– That our walk of faith will be in submission to God and His infallible word.
 
– That we will commit ourselves to the instructions of the word of God.
 
BIBLE READING
Day 177: Psalms 21-24
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– I submit my will, emotions, thoughts and body to the Lord.
 
– I am committed and devoted to the word of God.
 
– The word of God directs my life.
 
– I am not controlled by the flesh.
 
– The word of God is a lamb unto my feet and a light unto my path.
 
– The will of the Lord concerning my life prevails.
 
OH HALLELUJAH! GLORY TO GOD!!!
