Power Of Submission.

When Paul ministered to the church at Ephesus in Ephesians 5:22-27 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. He was actually expounding using the marriage union of how as believers, we ought to be submitted to Christ for we are, the bride of Christ while Christ is the bridegroom.
Let’s look at this perspective for any marriage to work, the wife ought to submit to her husband who is the head, while the husband ought to love her. Coming to think of it, as the bride of Christ, His love for us is guaranteed, unconditional and eternal but when it comes to our end, have we submitted our will to His will, our power to His power? or do we want to have our way which is limited.
It’s very good you are submitted to your husband, to those in authority, to your parent’s but are you submitted to Christ??So, what is being submitted to Christ?? Being submitted to Christ, is, coming under His authority, power, covering and we no longer yield to our own power but to His power. In short, we are fully aware we are stewards of our own lives but not masters of our own lives. When a wife is fully submitted to her husband, he cultivates her and brings out the best in her. The same applies to our walk with God, when we are fully submitted to God, we yield our power to His power, to walk and live the life He designed for us.

Take Note:- Submission has nothing to do with force; it’s an act of the will. God does not force us to submit to Him!!! When we have a revelation of the power of submission, we submit to him because we love Him, we honor Him, we are fully aware, we are nothing without him and we can’t be all that He created us to be, if we are not submitted to His ways, His will and His power.

Recently I was reading about a God’s general, who made up a choice in His heart, to fully submit His power to the power of God. This God’s general is none other than Smith Wigglesworth. Early in His life, He was not fully submitted to God but when He realized God was calling Him to do greater things through Him, he gave up his business for the ministry and fully submitted to the will and power of God
One remarkable story is when He prayed for a woman in a hospital. While he and a friend were praying she died. He took her out of the bed stood her against the wall and said “in the name of Jesus I rebuke this death”. Her whole body began to tremble. Then he said “in the name of Jesus walk”, and she walked. Everywhere he would go he would teach and then show the power of God.
On a personal level, this really challenged me and I came to realize, God is still the same God who used Smith Wigglesworth in His generation and is still the same God, who is willing to work through us, if we are willing to submit our power to His power which is unlimited.
Someone might think, submission to God, only applies to those who are called into ministry No.no.no.no, submission to God is not dependent on what you do for a living but how you live on a daily basis .Job 22:21-22 Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you, accept instruction from his mouth and lay up his words in your heart.Are you submitted to God in the corporate sector, are you submitted to God while transacting any business deal, are you submitted to God while in school and are you submitted to God in your gifts and talents?? Submission to God is allowing His power to be at work in you, which is unlimited to do exploits for His glory here on Earth
Please listen!!! When we fail to submit our entire lives to God and try to do things our way, thinking He is in the equation yet He is completely out of the equation!!! We only limit God’s power to be at work in us. Our Submission and zeal to do the will of God, not only will it please Him but He will deposit in us divine wisdom and understanding that will have a positive impact, in this generation and generations after.

Deuteronomy 4:5-7 See, I have taught you statutes and rules, as the Lord my God commanded me, that you should do them in the land that you are entering to take possession of it. Keep them and do them, for that will be your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples, who, when they hear all these statutes, will say, ‘Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.’For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as the Lord our God is to us, whenever we call upon him?

Take Note:-It’s never too late to submit your plans, will and power to God. Get to understand this truth:-For God to fully entrust us to His power, we have to totally be submitted to Him. One cannot submit to God without humility. Therefore, having a humble and a submissive heart is a choice we intentionally make. That means as born-again believers we daily make a choice to submit ourselves to God for the work that the Holy Spirit does in us to “conform us to the image of Christ.
