Today we will discuss the topic of Submission. This topic is a hard one for some people mostly because our human nature causes us to want to do everything ourselves. To submit to anyone or anything means to yield to a "superior being." We find submission common in marriages as wives are encouraged to submit to their husbands and husbands to their wives as it says in the word of God. We also find submission in our workspace, where we have to submit to our bosses or leaders, we have to yield to their authority and follow by their rules. Not only is it important to yield or submit in relationships or on jobs but it is important to submit to God. God told me that this would be my next topic on September 23, 2019 when he said,
"Submission should be your next topic for your blog. You should discuss why it is important for you to submit unto me."-God
So I want you to ponder on this thought for a moment, Why is it important to Submit unto God? Take a moment and ask yourself, Why is it important that me and my household submit to God through our actions, reactions, thoughts, conversations, and our habits? David is an example of submission. Before David was ever a king, he was a servant and this was important to God. How can you ever lead if you are not willing to serve? Service is apart of submission, in order to submit to God you must be willing to serve him. But, what does serving God look like?
Serving God is not just something we do on a Sunday morning at church. Serving God is an everyday lifestyle as we serve him with our hearts to worship him through prayer, song, and humility. We serve God through our commitments to study his word daily, and our decision to allow him to be the controller of our lives.
Lot‘s of people are not a fan of serving God because there is this misconception that society has created that says when you are doing service too and for God, you are a slave to him. Some people also don’t like to surrender and serve God because they don‘t want anyone to control their futures/lives. Making the decision to submit to God and serve him is the best decision you could make for your life because once you commit to him, he will commit to you. Just as the Bible says in James 4:8,
“Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world.”
YOU CANNOT BE OF THE WORLD AND OF GOD'S KINGDOM AT THE SAME TIME!! God desires that you make a decision to either serve him or serve the world. Submission to the world means you are giving in to the devil's way of life. All blessings do not come from God as the devil is also a giver of blessings. The blessings of the evil and wicked. Submission to God equals protection, comfort, longevity, covenant, and so much more. I charge each and every one of you to do it God’s way! Submit to God with all of your heart and I promise you, he will not lead you astray. This is the word of the Lord! Receive it!
