Be Completely Submissive!
I don’t know you, but I really struggle with being submissive. Even when it comes to God sometimes. It really bothers me when people tell me what to do, how to live, what I should be. I even ignore myself sometimes. When I know I need to do something and I don’t because I would rather do something else. Personally I think that is one of the key struggles we all have in our walk with God? What I don’t understand is why we keep rebelling. Is it really that hard? YES it is. Because we forget that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the principalities of darkness. ~Ephesians 6:12
Let me start by saying, He, God our Father! When He made us gave us free will.. Once we accept Christ into our lives along with the Holy Spirit, we are able to see more clearly what is right and what is wrong. But being submissive is more then saying Yes or No. It is about completely trusting in God, about doing as he says with out question. A lot of times I have found the things God asks me to do make little sense…. It can even sometimes be embarrassing… Jesus had Peter walk on water; He had a man dunk himself in water seven times to be healed of leprosy; He spit in the dirt and rubbed that mixture on a man’s eyes, so he would be healed. God had them walk around Jericho for seven days doing nothing but praising and worshiping Him until the walls fell! Just a few examples at how strange the things may ask us to do are. But that is where faith comes in. If we can not truly trust our loving Father completely! Then we can never be completely submissive. But when we can, Amazing things happen!
Completely! That is a big word in its self! And being submissive can be scary. To give yourself completely to something, and being submissive too, is a huge deal. I can understand how hard that is. To give ones’ self away to someone completely, and to be submissive to another person is hard I am sure. Even I don’t know if I could do that.. At least to no one but God my Father.
Being submissive it is not really that hard. Think of it as being a servant or a host. We make it hard.
He sent Jesus for that purpose, to save us, and to teach us how to be. Jesus was the greatest example of being Completely Submissive! John 3:16. If we can not completely give ourselves to him for even five minuets. How can we expect to change, to grow, to become better, to find our purpose in life. We need to have a personal walk with Jesus, with the Holy spirit, with our Father God! Taking even just five minuets to kneel by the bed, bow our heads, and trust in Him. Can make such a huge difference in my mood and in the way I think for the rest of the day in such improved way. With all the stress of the world on our solders we need God to support us. But he can not do that if we can’t even trust him for five minuets….
How can we not want to be completely embraced in God’s everlasting love! Or to be completely forgiven and made a new? To let Him supply all our needs?? To be COMPLETELY SUBMISSIVE, means we show our full selves, we give up our control and give it all to Him. ~Philippians 4:13 I know my hardest struggle with that is I don’t feel worthy enough for it, or for my Father God’s love.. But We are good enough! He made us that way! He wants us to be happy! He wants us to be healthy, He wants us to have everlasting life. John 10:10; John 10:11
So please take some time out of your very busy schedule and devote it COMPLETELY to God. Read some of your Bible, listen to praise and worship music, or JUST BE SILENT and see what happens… If your open and are completely submissive to Him in that time You will see change in your life. It is not easy but one little step at a time is enough to start. However we have to take that first step.. And we need to listen…
Don’t be embarrassed, don’t be shy… Go wherever you need to go to do this, is between you and God. Even if you have to lock yourself in the bathroom and pray in there, or to your car. But we need to be submissive, for when we are then Great works will be in our lives. Doors will be opened, paths will be cleared, and rivers will be filled!
