James 4:7 “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

Have you ever felt the irresistible urge of controlling everything in your life? Where one hopes for things to go a certain way, people to behave or respond in a certain manner and circumstances to unfold as they expect? As humans, it is very easy to want to do things in our knowledge and watch them go exactly our way. However, these expectations, most of the time, only lead to great disappointment. As Christians, we have been called by God to completely surrender, completely submit to Him and then watch Him make things happen for us.

Matthew 6:33: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

In Matthew 6: 25-34, Jesus speaks about our endless worries and anxieties of life and how, instead of worrying about where our next meal will come from, we should focus that energy into pursuing God’s kingdom, trusting His righteousness, and leaving it to Him to take care of the basic needs of our lives. When we seek God’s kingdom and His righteousness, we live in that ongoing repentance from sin, and lead the kind of sincere, from-the-heart, devoted-to-God lifestyles Jesus has been describing. In response, God will provide for whatever it is we truly “need” according to His will.


Galatians 2:20: “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” When we surrender to God, we are made new, and Christ lives in us and we live by faith. This is the kind of surrender and submission that pleases God. When we seek Him diligently and allow Him to take over, then we do not have to be constantly worried about the troubles in life, for He will take care of us.

Those who leave everything in God’s hand eventually see God’s hand in everything– Unknown
