SUBMITTING TO GOD'S AUTHORITY


...For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgement on themselves...” Romans 13:1-3

What is Authority? Authority is the right to influence, to command and to enforce obedience. Paul, in the scripture above, urges us to have respect towards all authority because it all emanates from God. Therefore, how do we develop regard for authority as God requires us to?

First, we must simply be the practitioners of God’s word. As you grow in the knowledge of the word, you must make a solemn decision to do as commanded by God’s word. The Holy Spirit, our counsellor, also guides us on a daily basis but it is your choice to act accordingly or otherwise.We, the sons and daughters of God are to be led by the Holy Spirit in every aspect of our lives whether in our finances, relationships, family or whatsoever. However, the ball falls in your court to yield to God’s authority over your life if you are to experience a life of greatness.

Just as Christ is the head of the church, we as Christians must ensure we yield ourselves to His word and authority no matter the dictates of our flesh. Depend on His ability at work in you to submit and watch Him make your life flourish like a tree planted by the rivers of water. Stay tuned as we delve more into this topic.
