Stay submitted to Me.

January 3, 2016

“For we do not have a High Priest who is unable to sympathize and understand our weaknesses and temptations, but One who has been tempted [knowing exactly how it feels to be human] in every respect as we are, yet without [committing any] sin” Hebrews 4:15, Amplified.
Even when it hurts like hell, fight to stay submitted to God. I’ve given birth to two children naturally without epidural, yet nothing compares to the emotional pain I’ve endured in my life. In the midst of it all, Jesus has helped me stay submitted to Him. Even when I was willing to do anything to make the pain stop, Jesus helped me to submit to Him and His will for me.
No matter how much pain you’re experiencing, know that Jesus dealt with excruciating pain while on the cross. To say He understands you is an understatement. He’s very familiar with both emotional and physical pain. Yet, He stayed submitted to God the Father and endured the cross. He is our example. Take up your cross and follow Him all the way to the end, come what may. He knows the pain you feel and His word for you today is, “Stay submitted to Me.”
Prayer: Oh Father, help me to stay submitted to You and obedient to your will come what may. When I bow, you rise. When I submit to your will, you raise a banner over your life. Thank you for your faithfulness to me and your truth. Love, Your Daughter
(Read Matthew 16:24-25)

    Yes Father I know that is the answer to stay submitted. Thank You even in our weekness You still uphold us and want just the best for us. If we don’t stay submitted we give the devil a foothold then we grieve the Holy Spirit through Whom we are sealed into You. When we grieve or quench Him we allow the enemy to control us through our flesh wanting our own ways. Please help us to crucify the self our flesh which is our greatest enemy. Help us to die to self to allow the Holy Spirit to control us only then are You glorified through us. Be glorified by having Your will, only Your will done in our lives. You have paid such a dear price and give us such a wonderful future to spend eternity with You! Thank You our Lord and Saviour Jesus Yeshua Who completed the whole Salvation. Amen

    So thankful for this devotional. Many times I claimed to submit to God, but still carried around my problems and this drained me physically and spiritually. It is my prayer to submit fully to God and stay focused. Please pray along with me as I throw away worries and do it on my own. It is my desire to let go and let God.

    I just saw the movie war room. Amazing, amazing, amazing. I went and got a journal. I started to write my prayers down. I realized it was better for me to write down my thoughts instead of praying only in my head. He has taken the burdens from my heart. I must of had many burdens cause my heart hurt so much as He pulled them out. After I felt at peace in my heart. I was so Amazed. The Lord Jesus quickly answered. Jesus is amazing and my love. He is my life. One thing I know for sure is that a prayer life is so important to have each and every day. I got so overwhelmed with everything in my life and in the world, I didn’t know how to put it in words. Writing it down was much easier and came naturally. After watching the movie as He put in my heart to watch, it blessed me so much and my family.My prayer life has changed for the better and so will I and my family😊

      Father God, Bless Paulate, as she starts a new year with a headstart on her journey unto Your heart! Feed manna unto her soul! Encourage her when she is low and send her aid when she is in need. Give her a heart to pray her way unto the heart of her Lord and Savior!! I know You will do this for her!! For You love her and call her unto Your heart! Set her apart and grant abounding grace to surplant any depression, infirmity, or weakness. March on across her heart!! She is about to fall down and be crowned as Your blessed daughter of the King. She is starting a new walk unto a divine destiny! So speak up and start a revolution in her soul!! Whoosh!! There it went!! Holy Spirit released it!! I don’t know what it was, just picked it up for you and slung it to Jesus!! Bless our Lord and Savior, as He crowns you with blessings and favor. He waited all this time for you to step into this place in your life. Receive it!! Savor it! He wants to bless you in His favor!! God bless you Paulate!! Jesus will carry you straight to His heart. Receive it! It is yours for the taking!! Hallelujah!! You set the captives free!! You use me and I love You more!! Open the doors of my soul and flood the corridors with Light!! I receive it unto the cold, dark night!!! I step unto the Light!! It covers and envelops me!! It consumes me and explodes from within!! Sin melts away!! Treacherous motives die and dry bones are revived!! Hallelujah!! Thank You, Jesus!! Whoosh!! There went strongholds!! I don’t see it or behold what You do through me! But I surrender to Your Will and release my pride!! If I shall live and die and know I did nothing more than completely surrender my heart to You and love You with reckless abandonment then that is enough for me, Lord! I shall touch the distances beyond my imagination for Your Glory! You wrote Your story on my heart! You had me at hello!! I just didn’t know it! Now, my life story shall be written on YOUR heart!! Your Book carries my destiny unto its pages!! My soul runs hard after You!! I am running with You now, Lord! We run in pace, You and me, for all to see!! Yes!! You live in me!! I rise from these ashes and You are the beauty in me!! I am awestruck as I look into the mirror to see who you are making me to be!! The Mirror of my soul won’t let me let go!! I am chained to my Master by grace!! Oh, the sweet taste of Your Eternal Love!! It fits my soul like a glove!! YES!! YES!! YES!! SWEET JESUS!! YOU ARE MY REASON TO SHINE! YOU ARE MY REASON TO RHYME MY WAY UNTO THE HEART OF THE KING WHOM REIGNS ON THE THRONE OF MY HEART AND LIFE FOREVERMORE!! YOU ARE THE REASON MY LIFE SINGS A LOVESONG UNTO YOUR HEART!! YOU HAVE GIVEN ME THIS HEART TO LOVE YOU WITH!! I LOVE YOU FOR IT, MORE AND MORE!! SELAH!!
