Voluntarily submission to God

 

Proverbs 3:5-6Proverbs 3:5-6
Spanish: Biblia Reina Valera - revisión de 1995 - RVR95

5 »Confía en Jehovág con todo tu corazón y no te apoyes en tu propia prudencia.h 6 Reconócelo en todos tus caminos y él hará derechas tus veredas.i

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight (or: will direct your paths).

 

When Adam rebelled against God in the Garden of Eden the intimacy of that communion was lost. Mankind as a whole got lost and wandered away from God. Whether we know it or not the one thing that all people lack is that communion with our Creator, it is the one thing we all are looking for but many of us are so blind to it that we replace it with smaller things. The vast emptiness within us can be filled by God alone. It is impossible for any of us on our own to fill the hole in our lives that was created when we rebelled against God. We need to submit to God because He will fill our emptiness.

 

 In the Scriptures, Christ is represented as being the husband of the church, and the church is taught to submit to him as a wife should submit to her husband.  Ephesians 5:22Ephesians 5:22

22 Las casadas estén sujetas a sus propios maridos, como al Señor,u

“Wives, Submit to your husbands as to the Lord.” 
  The wife submits to her husband because she loves him—if she submits from any other reason she must be unhappy in her submission.  The submission, that comes from love, and is the willing response of love, is the source of the deepest and truest happiness that can come from human sources.   So the submission to God, which is acceptable to him, and which reacts in blessedness to the soul who submits, must be based upon love.  

 

The secret of such submission is thus stated by John,   1 John 4:161 John 4:16
Spanish: Biblia Reina Valera - revisión de 1995 - RVR95

16 Y nosotros hemos conocido y creído el amor que Dios tiene para con nosotros. Dios es amor,q y el que permanece en amor permanece en Dios y Dios en él.

  “We have known and believed the love that God hath to us.”   So he exclaims in the next breath, “God is love.”   Only the truly submitted heart can fathom the love of God, or can love God with that self-enriching love, which inspires devotion and
causes us to delight in God.   The fervor of love softens the will and makes it flexible.   When we love, it is easy to obey; it is easy to submit.   All the irksomeness and compulsion is taken out of religion when the heart is full of love toward God.   The more we love, the easier it is to serve, and the more joyful is that service.

 

 

People like to have their own way, and often think that if they surrender to God they can’t have their own way anymore. However, when we have chosen God’s will as our will, we always have our own way when God has his way. Some are afraid to submit to God’s will lest they should have to give up their own cherished plans or ambitions; lest they should not be able to choose for themselves. But we can always choose for ourselves if we choose what is best.  Matthew 7:9Matthew 7:9

9 ¿Qué hombre hay de vosotros, que si su hijo le pide pan, le dará una piedra?

  “Which of you, if his son asks for a fish, will give him a snake?  If you, then though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”   
If we don’t choose God’s will, but choose some other way, we’re choosing less than the best for ourselves. Therefore, we are robbing ourselves of that which is best for us, and we thereby lose the joy and peace that are the fruits of choosing his will.
