Submission - A Place of Grace

Submission, Our Place of Safety and Growth

There are other places where submission is working, such as to government and employers. Each one is ordained of God for certain reasons. In all of them, however, our response is the same. We are to recognize the relationship for what it is, recognize the design of God, and with our eyes wide open to the living God, submit completely to God in the relationship. We have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Remember, we are never dealing with man, but with God. It is God who designed the relationships for His purposes and our benefit.

Active submission to God in these relationships allows the purpose of God to be worked in our lives so we can be a glory and praise to Him. If fear enters in, remember that God is not the author of fear. Perfect love casts out fear. The solution is to come back to God until He fills our vision. It must be crystal clear in our vision, however, that we cannot bypass any of these relationships. They are all part of God's perfect plan. May the Lord encourage each one of us this day to find a place of perfect submission, that He may lift us up.
