Submitting yourselves to God is easier said than done but this is what we must do to be receive all God has for us.
We ask God for things we desire but we are battling not only with ourselves but with others and we put them on a higher post and think God will grant our desires – NO. You must SUBMIT yourselves totally.
“God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”
James 4:6 NIV
When we ask God and we don’t receive it’s because we have the wrong motives and God knows that so we need to ask in a deeper passionate of submission. One way is resisting the devil, getting closer to God, washing your hands of the past, and purifying your heart. It must be a full submission of your heart, body, and soul.
Planning for Tomorrow, WHY? Saying what you are going to do, where you are going, how much money you are going to make. Boasting about tomorrow and you don’t even know what will happen in the next minute. I have learned on a personal note don’t PLAN. God laughs at your plans, “For I know the plans I have for you, “declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV)
Instead just say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” (James 4:15, NIV) –enjoy and live your life for we don’t know the seconds, minutes, or hour our breath shall be taken. So submit.
