“Now it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then He said, “Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love… sacrifice him.”Genesis 22:1
God gave Abraham an instruction when He said, “take your son and go sacrifice him.” The scriptures record it quite clearly — God said it and Abraham did it. Abraham was a man who was obedient to God’s voice and to all that He commanded.
Submission is misunderstood in today’s society. The word “submission” has become like a swear word. Submission is an art which has been lost in the body of Christ. This might be the underlying reason why many have lost their calling and destiny, or their business, jobs, houses, cars, family or financial prosperity which God had planned for them.
“SUBMISSION IS NOT WEAKNESS, IT IS SIMPLY POWER UNDER AUTHORITY!”
Everything is the opposite when it comes to the Kingdom of God. If you want to reach the top, you need to place yourself at the bottom. If you want to receive, you need to give. The way up in the Kingdom of God is down. Jesus was obedient when He was led into the wilderness, and the result was an open heaven over His life, followed by signs, wonders and miracles in His ministry on this Earth.
If you equip yourself in the knowledge of the power which is locked up in submission, the results will be open heavens over your ministry, your family, and your life.
In His Love,
