James 4:7 “Therefore; SUBMIT to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you”
Surrender all, every area of your life to God
Unite your will with the will of God.
Become one heart with God’s heart
Allows us to:
Move to the leading of God’s Holy Spirit
As we move in unity, the Holy Spirit
Illuminates our candle with the Eternal Light of Jesus
Producing and manifesting:
Truth, in love, flowing in and through our hearts and lives.
As we partner with Jesus, our Great Intercessor, surrendering our hearts to Him, uniting our wills with God, we become One, united in the power of agreement. Now we can move with the leading of the Holy Spirit, because we are moving by spirit and not flesh. When we are in agreement, the light of Jesus Christ can shine, through us, touching lives and situations with the Truth of the Word of God, as we continue to be sensitive to the heart and will of God through prayer and intercession.
SURRENDER: yield, give, grant, offer, bow
UNITE: band, marry, to join, adhere to
BECOME: mature, develop, change, transform
MOVE: advance, influence, submit
ILLUMINATE: to light, quicken, stir, arouse
TRUTH: honesty, genuine, integrity, purity
When we surrender ourselves to God, submitting to Him willing, consciously, wholeheartedly, we are giving Him the authority over our lives as our Sovereign Ruler. We are saying, “I can’t do this on my own Lord, I need You.”
SUBMIT: surrender your mind, your heart, your will and every area of your life, to the power and passion of His love for you; that in your humble submission; your absolute surrender to Him; He is able to use each one of you according to His will, to fulfill His call on your life, which He planned before the foundation of time.
(The Lord expounded on this teaching while I was in Cleansing Stream Ministries. This is how He defined SUBMIT)
