Submission is not always a welcomed word amongst us gals. “Submission. Whaaa!?! Ain’t nobody gonna tell ME what to do”!!! (lets not forget the Puerto Rican version with the head bobbin, snapping fingers and eyes rollin. Can you picture it?)
The thing is… If we would just get over ourselves…(note to self!) for a SECOND… we’d realize that Submission is actually FOR OUR BENEFIT!
Submission is a key element in the smooth functioning of any business, government, or family. God ordained submission in certain relationships to prevent chaos. Did you hear that? TO PREVENT CHAOS.
It is essential to understand that submission is NOT surrender, withdrawal, OR apathy. Submission is mutual commitment and cooperation.
Where are YOU with submission? Is it a four letter word for you? Have you experienced the benefits of submission?
Before you answer, ponder the absolute epitome of submission: “And He was saying, “Abba! Father! All things are possible for You; remove this cup from Me; yet not what I will, but what You will.” Mark 14:36
“Yet not what I will, but what you will”. Submission.
