Our first area of Submission is to God.
- Submit to Him
- Resist the devil
- Submission to Him will cleanse from Sin
Hebrews 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
- Submit to those in authority over you –
1 Peter 2:13 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;
They must account to God for how they lead you.
- It benefits you to listen to those who God places over you
- Your parents
- Your teachers
- Your boss
- Your pastors
- Your spiritual leaders
Discuss with others how following authority has benefited your life. Share with your children how you have to submit to those you work for. If you are a boss, share with them how you treat those who work under you. Pray with your loved ones today for those who God has placed over you.
PRAYER: Father, thank you for being in charge of my life. I am thankful that you are my Father. Help me today to listen and obey that which you tell me to do. Be with my bosses at work and help me to build up and work hard to help them succeed. Be with the leaders in our country and lead them to do right before You. Help me to be an example to others in this area of submission. Let others come to you because of my obedience to You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
