Why Submission to God Part 2

 

Jesus loves you.

Why should you submit to God? What would you gain by submitting to God? This post gives the remaining reason why you should submit to God.

Reasons to submit to God

6.Victory – This is guaranteed when you submit to God. God is the Almighty and He will prove Himself in any battle you may be facing. James 4:7 (KJV) – “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

7. Provision – Submission to God commands provision from Him. God is committed to supplying all your needs when you totally yield to Him. Matthew 6:31-33 (KJV) – “Therefore take no thought, saying, what shall we eat? Or, what shall we drink? Or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

8. Good health – Sickness and diseases are not from God. When you submit to God He takes them away from you. Exodus 23:25 –“You shall serve the Lord your God; He shall bless your bread and water, and I will take sickness from your midst.”

9. Long life – God desires that you enjoy life and have it in abundance, (John 10:10) but this is only possible when you yield to Him.  Psalm 91:14, 16 (KJV) – “Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. With long life will I satisfy him and shew him my salvation.”

10. Eternal life – The ultimate benefit of submission to God is eternal life. This is a life of peace with God after death. John 10:27-28 – “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”

In conclusion, Submitting to God is the wisest thing to do. It offers you abundant life here on earth and beyond. Therefore ensure to submit to Him.

    • Hi Vicky. Pls, do accept my condolence for the death of your dear friend. But I do assure you that God desired to heal her because the word says that He wishes above all things that we prosper and be in health, even as our souls prosper, (3 John 2). Also, by the stripes of Jesus we were healed, 1 Peter 2:24. Jesus has paid the price for our total health. we only need to receive it by faith.
      Thanks for commenting. God bless you.

  2. Thank you for this message as once again I am struggling to make ends meet and I lose sight of Gods Mercy.
