Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
-Submit in Greek is written as hupotasso which means to put in subjection, obey, to submit to one’ s authority or to yield to one’s admonition or advice. The word submit has been used a multitude of times in the Bible including: – the angel told Hagar to submit to Sarai (Gen 16:8-10), submission to God yields peace and prosperity (Job 22:21-28), demons submitted to the seventy two disciples in the name of Jesus (Lk 10:17-20), minds governed by the flesh cannot submit to God (Rom 8:7), Israel often times did not submit to God (Ps 81:11-12), we are called to submit to the authorities (Rom 13:5), to one another (Eph 5:21), wives to husbands (Eph 5:22), servants to masters (1 Pet 2:18) and everyone to God (Jam 4:7).
-Faith builds up trust in God and submission is a precipitate, which develops through the help of the Holy Spirit. Often times we have ideas that we execute before consulting God. When something goes amiss then we remember to pray for Gods’ guidance. Many are the plans in our heart, but it is the Lord ’s purpose that prevail (Prov 19:21). Some of us are trusting God for job opportunities, business prosperity, marriage, children, healing, safety of their children and families, basic needs, education, freedom in many areas, salvation and other things. God reminds us to submit all our plans and hearts desires unto Him. To acknowledge Him as the giver of all things. To be still and completely trust in Him, and He will make our plans succeed.
Thank You Lord for this far that You have brought us, we have seen Your gracious hand in all things. We submit our plans and hearts desires unto You Jesus, take complete control of our lives. Many are the plans in our hearts but we humbly ask You Lord to ordain our steps. We cast all our burdens and cares unto You Jesus for You care for us. Thank You Jesus praise You Jesus. Help us to be still Jesus amid the anxieties that we face and heal all our wounds. Remember our children who are going back to school that You may protect them and guide them in all things. Remember also Lord our families, jobs, businesses, studies, church needs and leadership, national leaders, institutions and entire nation, that You may take control and direct us in the way we should go. You are the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last Lord. We praise You and honor Your name, now and forever. Amen
