When we’ve received a final diagnosis and bills are piling up, we start to panic (panic is groundless fear). What are you confessing and releasing over yourself? Faith and fear (panic) can’t operate simultaneously. Faith means that we Trust in God to deliver on all the promises made and that we are steadfast in the promises and the Power of God. Hebrews 11:1-3 speaks about faith. When we confess the word of God over our situation, we agree to what God has already done on the cross for us. I am healed; I am debt free in Jesus name. It is done, it is finished – confess it with your mouth and believe it.
But when we are self-centred our central focus will be our own abilities and how to get ourselves out of the situation. When the central point becomes our own strength, our own abilities, it becomes pride. When we are strong in our abilities it will weaken what God want to do in our life. It does not mean that God is weak, but it means that we are standing in our own strength and blocking God’s full power. When we become weak, God can become strong if not “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”(NKJV). James 4:6. When you humble yourself and rely on His strength and His abilities, God will be able to do mighty things for you, if you allow him, if you give Him access to your life. The choice is yours.
What does it mean to submit yourself?
To submit is to accept or yield to a superior force or to the authority or will of another person. It means that the presence of the Lord must become our only solution without questioning. Where we give total control and power over to God and agree with His word, obeying it and getting ourselves out of the way. When we submit ourselves to the finished work of Jesus Christ we will be humbled and fully committed to Him.
I want to encourage you to maintain your victory in the spiritual so that it can manifest in the natural. So stand firm in the Lord; don’t give ground over to the devil by confessing his lies. He is under our feet. The power to defeat the devil is given to us, we need to submit and access that power.
Prayer: Lord, today I submit under your teaching of the Word and under your Love so that your grace will be sufficient in my life in Jesus name Amen.
