“In all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” – Proverbs 3:6
When you have a very supportive father or a mother who has all the resources it takes to get your dreams into reality, will you ever start off a project without consulting them? What do you when you feel ill but have a family doctor? Will you ignore the family doctor and seek health your own way when you aren’t medically trained? The truth is, we will always submit ourselves to those who know better than us so that we ourselves can do better. Get This:
1. God never designed you for failure.
2. In submission, you fulfil God’s purpose for your life.
3. Success lies in fulfilling the purpose of life.
God created this earth and everything in it but He isn’t overly in charge of this earth. Yes, He is the God of all the universe but He never desired to control the earth or even control man. He released this earth to us and therefore we are the ones to make out of it anything we want. However, in submitting to God as we operate this earth, we achieve God’s purpose for this earth. Although we have been made in His image, we can only operate like Him if we let Him teach us.
POINT TO NOTE
The first step to submitting to God is by believing in your heart that Jesus has reconciled you with God and made you righteous in your Spirit by the reason of His death and resurrection. The next and only thing to do is to trust that God is able to keep you from falling and by letting His word and the guidance of the Holy Spirit directs you. This way, your path is always straight!
“I have been united with God in Jesus and therefore I am in right standing with God. My ways are submitting to God and therefore I am walking by His own leading. Hallelujah!”
Thank you, precious Lord, for making every crooked way straight in my life! I reaffirm my submission to you.
