The word submit is a military term that means “get into your proper rank.” When a buck
private acts like the general, there is going to be trouble! Unconditional surrender is the only
way to complete victory. If there is any area of the life kept back from God, there will always
be battles. This explains why uncommitted Christians cannot live with themselves or with
other people.
“Neither give place to the devil,” cautions Paul in Ephesians 4:27. Satan needs a foothold in
our lives if he is going to fight against God; and we give him that foothold. The way to resist
the devil is to submit to God.
After King David committed adultery with Bathsheba and killed her husband, he hid his sins
for almost a year. There was war between him and God, and David had declared it. When he
finally submitted to God, David experienced peace and joy. Submission is an act of the will;
it is saying, “Not my will but Thine be done.”
From the Book: “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments” (John 14:15, NASB).
Read: Psalms 32 and 51; Mark 14:32-36; 1 Peter 1:14.
Action assignment: Ask God to show you any area of your life that is not yielded to Him.
Tell Him you want Him to be Lord of all today and every day.
