FAITH

Insights in Faith
+A Deeper and more Accurate understanding of FAITH with practical application and demonstration and all in accordance with the Word of God.
+The Omnipotent (All-Powerful, Unlimited and Inexhaustible) Power of God is in us by the Holy Spirit.
James 2:17, 20
Faith without works (acting or doing in accordance with the Word of God) is dead.
+Action Activates and Releases the Anointing (Power of God) so IT can FLOW and do it’s Miraculous Work in us and through us.
+Remember Faith is Continuous. Always Believing and Acting in accordance with the Word of God.


Matthew 17:20
Jesus said unto them,
…for verily I say unto you, If you have FAITH AS A GRAIN OF MUSTARD SEED, you shall say unto this MOUNTAIN, remove from here to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
+Please Notice that Jesus DID NOT SAY IF YOU HAVE FAITH THE SIZE OF A MOUNTAIN you shall say to this MUSTARD SEED remove from here…
+Sometimes we think it’s the SIZE of FAITH that moves mountains, but it is not so.
+If FAITH the size of a mustard seed can move mountains, can you imagine having FAITH the size of a MOUNTAIN.
+Faith the size of a mustard seed or Faith the size of a mountain, either way you have FAITH ENOUGH to move any mountain that is a hindrance to your life.
+YOU HAVE MOUNTAIN MOVING FAITH. USE IT AND TAKE YOUR VICTORY IN JESUS NAME. AMEN!


Matthew 17:20
Jesus said unto them,
…for verily I say unto you, If you have FAITH as a grain of mustard seed, YOU SHALL SAY unto this mountain, remove from here to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
+Notice, in regards to FATH Jesus said, “YOU SHALL SAY”.
+Speaking is a Principle in the operation of FAITH.
+FAITH must be spoken.
Mark 11:22-23
22 And Jesus answering said unto them, HAVE FAITH IN GOD.
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall SAY unto this mountain, Be removed, and be cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he SAID shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he SAID.
+Hold STRONG to the things you SAY in FAITH and know that they will come to past in Jesus Name. Amen!


…continuing on the Principle, “Faith must be spoken”.
Mark 11:23 Jesus said:
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall SAY unto this mountain, Be removed, and be cast into the sea; and SHALL NOT DOUBT in his heart, BUT SHALL BELIEVE that those things which he SAID shall come to pass; HE SHALL HAVE WHATSOEVER HE SAID.
Psalm 116:10
I BELIEVED, therefore have I spoken…
+If you believe in you heart and speak what you believe, you will have what you say.
+Believe what the Word of God says, and speak what the Word of God says, and you will have what the Word of God says. Amen!


Romans 4:17
…even God, who gives life to the dead, and CALLS THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT AS THOUGH THEY WERE.
+The FAITH of God (the God’s kind of FAITH) calls the things that are not as though they were.
+In Genesis 1:3 God said, Let there be light, AND THERE WAS LIGHT.
+God called the thing (light) that was not as though it were, and light came about.
+So apparently there was no light on earth at that time, and God said “Let there be light” and there was light.
2 Corinthians 4:13
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak.
+As we pursue goals we must speak them into existence.


Matthew 17:20
Jesus said:
…for verily I say unto you, If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say unto this mountain, Remove from here to yonder place; and it shall remove; and NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE UNTO YOU.
+In others words Jesus is saying FAITH in God makes all things POSSIBLE.
+Remember Hebrews 11:6
But without FAITH it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God…
+There is nothing too difficult for the Lord. When we put our FAITH in Him and Keep our FAITH in Him we will experience unlimited possibilities. Hallelujahs to Jesus!!!


Matthew 7:24-25
24 Therefore whosoever HEARS these sayings of mine, and DOES them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who built his house upon a rock:
25 And the RAIN descended, and the FLOODS came, and the WINDS blew, and beat upon that house; and IT FELL NOT: for it was founded upon a rock.
+Every person of Faith HEARS the Word of God and Do what the Word of God says to do.
+The RAIN, FLOODS and WINDS represent the negative elements and people that come against us when we walk by FAITH and do the Word of God.
+But as long as we KEEP our FAITH in the Word of God while we are doing what the Word of God says to do we will never FALL or FAIL. Praise the Lord!!!
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus Loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust, and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

LIVING THE GODLY LIFE

Living the Life of God ,means to be obedient to His word.
As Acts 17:28 says,
For in Him (Christ Jesus) we Live, and Move, and have our Being.
+Our Being is the new person we are in Him, and the new life we Living in Him)…
+If we are not in Christ Jesus we cannot live the Life of God.
Galatians 2:20
…Christ lives in us…
+All that come from us in Words, Thoughts and Deeds should be Christ in us and nothing of our own (or old) self: the person we were before Christ came into our lives.
+Some may say “Well how about my personal desires. Don’t I count?”
+Think on this: “Lord give me NOT the desires of my heart, but instead give me the Desires of Your Heart”


+Jesus prayed a Wonderful prayer to the Father in John Ch-17, and in verse 11 He said:
…Holy Father, keep through Your Own Name those Whom You have given Me, that they may be ONE, as We ARE.
+Living the Life of God requires for us to be ONE with God the Father through God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
+How are we ONE with God?
+We ONE with God in Spirit (His Holy Spirit is in our hearts).
+We are ONE with God in Mind (we have the Mind of Christ which is the Mind of God).
+We are ONE with God in Body, (the Body of Christ).
+Remember the best way to love God is to love Him with all of our hearts, souls, minds and strength, and to love one another like Christ lives us.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for our lives.
•Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED we are and BLESSED we will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!!!

BE RIGHTEOUS

Do you think,that you are righteous ?
Isaiah 64:6-9.
But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities. But now, O Lord , thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. Be not wroth very sore, O Lord , neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people.

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith”. (Romans 12:1‭-‬3 KJV)


“See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of God”.(Ephesians 5:15-21)

DO YOU THINK THAT WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS?

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men , as theirs also was. But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them ; and that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works”.(2 Timothy 3:1‭-‬17 KJV).

YOUR THOUGHTS

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD . For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it”.(Isaiah 55:8‭-‬11 KJV).

The Direction Of Our Thoughts (Think On These Things)

The superiority of our thoughts is impressive. Our thoughts are to our lives what a control tower is to a pilot as he/she flies a plane; guiding and directing our character, our conduct and our conversations. Proverbs 23:7 states, “For as a man calculates the cost of himself, this is what he does: He tells you, “eat and drink,” but he does not mean it. Therefore, if we want to change the direction of our lives we need to change our thoughts to harmonize our direction.

The “great news is that what we think about is ours choice.!” We can choose to “think” noble thoughts or salacious thoughts. It is our choice. It is a choice we need to make circumspectly because the rest of our lives as God’s masterpiece, will be influenced by our thoughts. Successful living is birthed in successful thinking; living in hope comes from hopeful thinking and the list goes on.

Our behavior is a result of our pattern of thinking to change our behavior or to change our direction, simply begins by changing our thinking pattern. Change our thoughts and we change our direction. The Bible tells us this, “be transform by the renewing of our minds.”:
Therefore, We need to:
Realize we have the mind of Christ;
Resolve to think positive or right thoughts;
Refuse to think about some things and; Replace our thoughts with God’s thoughts.

God has given us free will, including the ability to influence the direction and the tone of our thoughts. And, here’s how God wants us to direct those thoughts: “Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable–if there is any moral excellence and if there is any praise—dwell on those things.” (Philippians 4:8)
The quality of our attitude well help determine the quality of our lives so we must guard our thoughts accordingly. If we make up our mind to approach life with a healthy mixture of realism and optimism, we will be rewarded. But, if we allow ourselves to fall into the unfortunate habit of negative thinking, we will doom ourselves to unhappiness, or mediocrity or worse. So, the next time we find ourselves dwelling upon the negative aspects of our lives, we should refocus our attention on things positive. That is the wise way to direct
our thoughts.

I, became aware of one very important concept I had missed before: MY ATTITUDE–
not my CIRCUMSTANCES—was what was making me unhappy. (Vionette Bright)

BENEFITS OF THE RIGHTEOUS

“The righteous will flourish like a palm tree.”

Psalm 92:12, NIV

The reason God said we’d flourish like a palm tree is that God knew we would go through difficult times. What’s interesting about the palm tree is that when it is bent over by the strong winds during a hurricane, research shows that the extreme stretching is strengthening the root system and giving it new opportunities for growth. After the storm, when the palm tree straightens back up, it’s actually stronger than it was before.

That’s what God does for us when go through difficult times. When you come out of the storm that was meant to defeat you, when you straighten back up, you’re not going to be the same. You’re going to be stronger, healthier, wiser, better off, and ready for new growth. God never brings you out the same. He makes the enemy pay for bringing the times of darkness and trouble. Your roots are going to be stronger. You’re not only going to still be standing; you’re going to be standing stronger.

That’s Freedom In Christ
As Galatians 5:1 NKJV tells us to;
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
+In Christ Jesus we are totally free in spirit, soul, mind and body, past, present and future.
+In Christ Jesus we are free from the world and the devil. There is absolutely nothing in this world that should keep us down.
+You may have gotten knock down with sickness, disease, financial hardship or bad relationships but you don’t have to stay down.
+I command you in The Name of Jesus! Get up! and stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free. For who the the Son set free is free indeed.
+For it is God who supplies all of our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Hallelujahs to Jesus!!!
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

POSSIBILITIES IN AND WITH GOD.

REMEMBER NOTHING is impossible for God.
Genesis 18:13-14
And the LORD said unto Abraham…
Is any thing too hard for the LORD?…
-If this is the Lord’s question to you regarding your present problem, what would your answer be?
Mark 10:27 Jesus said:
…for with God all things are possible.
Mark 9:23 Jesus also said: If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.
-So I say unto you be encouraged and stay encouraged.
Psalm 37:7-8
Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not yourself…
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not yourself in any way…
-There is nothing that is too hard for the Lord.

LISTEN

Faith must be exercised before the blessings are materialized.
2 Corinthians 5:7
For we walk by faith, not by sight.
+FAITH does not look at the things that are seen. FAITH looks at the things which not seen.
James 2:26
…FAITH without Works is dead.
+FAITH is always demonstrated by the MATCHING ACTIONS of FAITH.
+Never let any situation or circumstance determine your FAITH.
+But instead let your FAITH determine your situation and your circumstance.
+Jesus said “Be it unto you according to your FAITH” Matthew 9:29.
+So continue to hold fast to your profession (confession, declaration, and proclamation) of FAITH without wavering because God is Faithful in delivering on all His promises. Hallelujah!!!
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for our lives. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED we are and BLESSED we will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!!!

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen”.
[Ephesians 3:20‭-‬21 NKJV].

ALWAYS HOPEFUL

You are not HOPELESS!
HOPE: a desired belief and expectation of the fulfillment of the promises of God in our lives.
Psalm 146:5
Happy is he that has the God of Jacob for his help, whose HOPE is in the LORD his God:
Psalm 71:5
For You are my HOPE, O Lord God…
Romans 5:3-4
…we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation works patience; And patience, experience; and experience, HOPE:
And HOPE makes you not ashamed…
Proverb 13:12
Without HOPE the the heart becomes sick.
-You are never without HOPE in the Lord.
-Keep your HOPE in the Lord.
-God blesses those whose HOPE is in Him, and happy are those whose HOPE is in the Lord.

Be Enlightened and Encouraged…
Lamentation 3:21-26
21 This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope.
22 It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning: great is your faithfulness.
24 The LORD is my Portion, says my soul; therefore will I hope in Him.
25 The LORD is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeks Him.
26 It is good that men and women should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
SALVATION: all that pertains to Life and Godliness through Christ Jesus our Lord. Hallelujahs to Jesus!!!
+Jesus is our Salvation. Enjoy Life with Him. Our Salvation is Full-Time for Lifetime. Amen!
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for our lives. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED we are and BLESSED we will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

GOD WILL NEVER REJECT YOU.

It doesn’t matter how bad things are:
John 6:37
Jesus said… him that comes to me I will in no wise cast out.

Let your character [your moral essence, your inner nature] be free from the love of money [shun greed—be financially ethical], being content with what you have; for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax M y hold on you [assuredly not]!” So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently say, “T he Lord is my H elper [in time of need], I will not be afraid . W hat will man do to me ?”
(Hebrews 13:5‭-‬6 AMP).


1John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” [2 Corinthians 4:17, NKJV]

There are times when life comes at us like a flood–a difficulty, opposition, a great loss. You can’t choose when or where the flood comes. That’s in God’s hands. We may not understand it, but God said His plans for us are for good to give us a bright future.

“For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord , ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope”. (Jeremiah 29:11 AMP).

That doesn’t mean bad things won’t happen along the way, but God knows how to use them for good. He wouldn’t allow it ;if it wasn’t going to work to our advantage.

Remember that what you’re going through is temporary, but what it works in you will bless you forever. If you could see where God is going to take you–the favor, the influence, the abundance, the health, the friends–you would realize there is a purpose for every challenge. When you don’t understand the purpose, you have to say, “God, I don’t see what You’re doing, but I trust You. I know Your ways are better than my ways. God, my life is in Your hands.”


+++In life we make mistakes, but we don’t have to be a mistake. God is Merciful, Gracious and Forgiving because God is Love.
+++With a sincere heart just repent, and ask God for forgiveness. That’s what God is saying to you today,
Hebrews 8:12
For I will be merciful to your unrighteousness, and your sins and your iniquities will I remember no more.
+++It time to get over it and move on. Jesus has never left you or forsaken you. The Spirit of God is in you. You have the heart of God, the Mind of Christ and God is the Strength of your life, alleluia!
+++May I remind you that you can also do all things through Christ which strengthens you, Phil 4:13.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the Glory. Amen! and Alleluia! Hallelujah! Glory to God.

EVIL NEVER LAST

Fret not thyself because of evildoers, Neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb. Rest in the LORD , and wait patiently for him: Fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: Fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: But those that wait upon the LORD , they shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: Yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

But the meek shall inherit the earth; And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. The wicked plotteth against the just, And gnasheth upon him with his teeth. The Lord shall laugh at him: For he seeth that his day is coming.

The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation. Their sword shall enter into their own heart, And their bows shall be broken.

A little that a righteous man hath is better Than the riches of many wicked. For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: But the LORD upholdeth the righteous. The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: And their inheritance shall be for ever.

They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. But the wicked shall perish, And the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: They shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away. The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again:

But the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth. For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; And they that be cursed of him shall be cut off. The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD : And he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: For the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. I have been young, and now am old; Yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. He is ever merciful, and lendeth; And his seed is blessed. Depart from evil, and do good; And dwell for evermore.

For the LORD loveth judgment, And forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: But the seed of the wicked shall be cut off. The wicked watcheth the righteous, And seeketh to slay him. The LORD will not leave him in his hand, Nor condemn him when he is judged. Wait on the LORD , and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: When the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it . I h

ave seen the wicked in great power, And spreading himself like a green bay tree. Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: Yea, I sought him, but he could not be found. But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: The end of the wicked shall be cut off.
(Psalm 37:1‭-‬2‭, ‬7‭-‬28‭, ‬32‭-‬36‭, ‬38 KJV).

Proverb 15:3
The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.
Hebrews 4:13
…but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him (God) with whom we have to do.
-There is nothing that is done in darkness that will not be brought to the light.
-There is an appointed time when the truth of all things will be revealed.
-Some of us are tormented by wrongdoings TO others and wrongdoings BY others and we do not want anyone to know, but God knows.
-Things like these are ruining people’s lives, breaking them down mentally, physically, emotionally, making them sick and some sick to the point of death.
-Where do we go from here?
-How can things get better?
-Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the life. He is the ONLY Person that can permanently resolve all of our problems. Go to Jesus with it.
-There is no condemnation for us who are in Christ Jesus. For who the Son sets free is free indeed.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!

SUBMISSION

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded”. (James 4:7‭-‬8 KJV).

Submission is something you decide to do, not something someone forces you to do. The meaning of the word “submit” is “to submit yourself.” It is a condition of the heart. Having a submitted heart means you are willing to submit yourself, and come into proper alignment in accordance with God’s will.
Our first priority in submission must always be to “submit to God” (James 4:7). This means you do not have to submit to the wishes of anyone who asks you to do something that is against God’s commands. You can have a submitted heart and still be able to draw the line when what is being asked of you violates your conscience and the laws of God.
For example, if a person who is a designated authority over your life asks you to for something that is wrong, or if that person says or dies something to you that is inappropriate and violates what is right in the sight of God, you must decline to be a party to it and declare it to be wrong. But you don’t have to scream at the person saying, “You idiot! or “You fool! What is the matter with you? Get behind me, satan!”. Instead, give them a respectful explanation such as, “with all due respect, I believe that what you are asking me to do us a violation of the laws of Hod, and in could not with any good conscience do it, knowing it would bring God’s judgment on us both,” Or “What you just said and did is offensive in the eyes if God, and in mist tell you that such inappropriate behavior will not serve either if us well.”
The difference between having a submitting heart and one that is not is that one will garner blessings for you and the other will get you into trouble.
Jesus Himself was submitted to God. His priorities were definitely in order. God wants that, “this mind be in your which was also in Christ Jesus, Who, be in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal to Gid, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the firm of a bond-servant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.” (Philippians 2:5-8). Now that’s submission! It would seem that if anyone might not have to be in perfect submission it would be Jesus. Yet in order to accomplish God’s purpose for His life, He was submitted to the will of the Father, even to the point of unfathomable suffering and death. What a role model He is for all of us.

Let us pray:
Dear Lord, I pray You would help me set my life in right order. I want to always put You first above all else in my life. Teach me how to love You with all my heart, mind, and soul. Show me when I am not doing that. I don’t want to have any other gods but You in my life. Show me if I have lifted up my soul to an idol. My desire is to serve You and only You. Help me to live accordingly. Lord, give me a submissive heart. Help me to always submit to the governing authorities and the correct people in my family, work, and church. In Jesus mighty and wonderful name, amen.
