Oh hi! I am in a very relaxed mood because…It's Sunday afternoon, it’s pouring raining, and I just got out of church! The rain brings so much peace and I love cuddling up on the couch while listening to the rain drops fall. Today’s message was extremely powerful. My pastor talked about "submission" and how the society struggles with it today.
We are supposed to be submitting to those who have authority over us. Interesting statement right? She talked about how we are supposed to submit to God, our spouses, employers, church institutions or anything else that claims authority. When we submit to something or someone it is an act of obedience. A lot of people struggle with submission because everyone wants to take charge and be the leader. Myself included. She mentioned the covenant between a husband and wife and how the wife is to submit to her husband. Even if he is wrong, she still must submit considering he is the man of the house. Yikes! Then she directed it to us single folks out here and how we are required to submit to God and not things that are of this world.
There are 24 hours in a day and we spend 8 to 12 hours of those hours at work. With that being said, we are submitting to our job by obeying our managers/coworkers, policies, or other obligations that might be hard to submit to. For example, if your employer decides to drastically change your work hours without your consideration..submit and be obedient. It could be a test that God wants to see you pass and he can change your situation if we learn to SUBMIT.
Same for paying tithes to your church institution. Wherever, we are getting spiritually fed at is where we should pay our tithes. Wherever your church home is..submit by giving the Lord his tithes and offering. Submit yourself to God and he will become your covering.
Lastly, when we submit to things, it doesn’t mean you agree all the time. It simply means that you understand your position. I am working on this. Submit Submit Submit. Kbye!
