Yielding unto God
James 4:7 (NKJV) 7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
We had a reader write to us, asking about how to yield to God and what it means to do so. We thought this would make a great topic for today’s teaching, so here it is 🙂
Yielding to God is something that encompasses your entire life, not just when someone is praying for you or laying hands on you.
Yielding to God means that we submit to Him in every aspect of our lives. We reach a place where we understand that our lives are not our own, but belong to Him fully.
The choices and decisions we make are His. The words we speak are His. The thoughts we think are His. Everything we do is about Him.
This doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time and effort on our part, to let God teach us how to submit to Him in everything.
As we learn and grow, it becomes second nature and we don’t have to think about it much any longer. We’ll eventually find ourselves considering God in everything we do and every choice or decision we make. And as we do this, our trust and faith in Him grows tremendously.
It’s actually something that’s hard to describe. And it’s not like we suddenly cross a line and reach that goal. It just happens over time. And one day we realize that we’re not the same person any longer. We have a new purpose and new drive in our life. It’s no longer all about us.
So keep moving forward. Keep pressing in to Him. Keep letting Him grow your faith and your trust. You’re on an incredible journey and the final destination is Him!
Have a blessed day
