Psalm 37:5 Commit your way to the Lord; trust also in Him, and He will bring it to pass.
People today commit to everything imaginable but when it comes to commitment to the authority of God’s words there seems to be lots of hesitation, complaining, rejection, doubt, rebellion and disobedience to what the Lord has commanded of us.
Do you have a hard time submitting to the authority of those that are over you? If you are having an issue with submitting to the authority of those that are over you either in your work, family, school, church, etc., I know without a doubt that you have a problem with submitting to God’s authority.
Does disobedient, rebellious, insubordination and refusing to comply describes your mindset and behavior? If you answered yes to this question you truly need to repent, ask for forgiveness and seek God through prayer and His Word for help.
How many times have God’s Holy Spirit given us a burden to do something and we not only ignore Him but we refuse to obey what He told us to do and are wondering why our prayers are hindered and not being answered?
To some degree we are ALL guilty of this form of disobedience to God.
If rebellion to God’s authority is a constant and daily routine for us something is wrong and it’s not God, it is an issue with our heart.
Proverbs 4:23-Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
Don’t blame God! Check your heart for it is there where everything that we say and do originates from. Everything starts in the mind with a thought and moves from there.
People of God, it’s time for a heart check up! Too often we talk one thing and live another, but the Word of God declares that God searches the heart of man so please be mindful in your disobedience to authority that the only one being deceived is you. We CAN NOT fool God. He is our Creator and He knows ALL about every fiber of your being.
To be honest, we are not our own. Scripture declares in Psalm 24:1- The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
God created us for His purpose and His glory, yet we have convinced ourselves that God was created for us and should run to our every beckoning call while we daily and continually live in rebellion and disobedience to what He commands of us.
Rebelling against God’s authority in your life? Is this where you find yourself every day? God has commanded many things of you but yet you still refuse to obey His authority in dong them, WHY?
Today is the day to make up in our minds and purpose in our hearts that we WILL commit our way unto the Lord. We will put forth every effort and all of our energy in being obedient to God and His authority in and through our lives.
Think of the many prayers, breakthroughs, miracles and blessings we are missing out on everyday because we refuse to commit our way unto the Lord.
Don’t blame God! Check your heart!
If you belong to God, He speaks to us daily and in so many ways. Are you obeying what you KNOW you are hearing God speak to you through His Word and His Holy Spirit?
How many times has God touched our heart to help someone in need along the way of life as we pass by throughout our day and we are able to but refuse? That’s rebellion too! Jesus said “in as much as you have done it unto the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me”. In our service to others, we are serving God.
What are you doing with what God is speaking to you about? Are you suppressing it or are you obeying what He is saying to you? Yes, we can quench God’s Spirit and His authority when we allow our flesh to rule over what we know the Spirit of God is saying to us.
Rebellion produces and releases into our lives nothing but continual frustration, agitation, stress, worry, short patience, anger, rage, guilt, sleepless nights and most of all the blame game.
Are you not tired of rebelling against God? Do you not want to see the benefit of peace and joy overflowing in your life daily regardless of what your lot may be? If this is your desire, it is time for the turnaround from disobedience to obedience to the authority of God in your life!
When you have made up your mind and purpose in your heart that you WILL “SUBMIT” to God’s authority in your life you will in turn begin to see the answer to many of those prayers you have been praying about because the Lord your God will act on your behalf according to your faith and His will.
The call from God to ALL of us today is obedience to the WILL OF GOD for our lives and that includes obedience to those that are in authority over us. If those that have rule over us do not what is right concerning us God will in turn deal with them with His Authority for they are in a greater accountability to God as leaders over you.
One thing of a surety is the fact that disobedience and rebellion holds up EVERYTHING and causes us to daily loose out on what we could have had, whereas, obedience to God releases the blessings of God for us from His hands to ours.
Today is the day to “SUBMIT” to the Authority of God the Father in ALL your ways for scripture declares that obedience is better than sacrifice.
COMMIT YOUR WAY TO THE LORD, OBEY HIM AND HE WILL ACT ON YOUR BEHALF!
