What keeps you up at night? (Joshua 6:12-13, NKJV)
If it’s to further God’s Kingdom, the answer, provision, and power is available, we just have to hear from God and obey.
The purpose of the test is to teach us to trust. (James 1:2-5, NCV)
The purpose of trust is to see God work in a great and mighty way.
Once we pass the test, we triumph!
Consistency brings the victorious Christian life. (2 Chronicles 26:5, NKJV; John 10:10, NKJV; Psalm 126:5-6, NKJV; Galatians 6:7, 9, NKJV; 2 Corinthians 9:6-7, NKJV; Luke 6:38, NKJV; Genesis 26:12, NKJV; Romans 8:31, NKJV)
What keeps you up at night that is not furthering God’s Kingdom?
It’s often the devil trying to distract and discourage you from doing God’s calling on your life. (James 4:7-8, NKJV)
The opposite of submission is contradiction.
One of the reasons we rebel and refuse to submit is because we want to be in control.
Submit to God:
- Submission is the freedom to be creative under the protection of divinely appointed authority.
- Submitting is leaving the final judgement or approval to those in authority over you.
- Submission is yielding and surrendering totally to God.
- Submission is leaving final outcome of any and all situations to God.
- Submission is running to God for divine protection (James 4:7)
Why don’t we submit to God and those over us?
We think we know better.
The beginning of all sin is believing we know more than God.
