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.”
