How to Submit to God

Hosted by

Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be miserable and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you. James 4:7-10

I was reading Mathew Henry’s commentary on this section of scripture. Masterful understanding of God’s Word and God’s ways. He says that a man who ‘weeps for his sins now, will not weep for them in eternity’. In submitting my life to God, there actions I take and responses He makes. I present my hands and heart (as double-minded as they often are). I adopt an attitude of misery and mourning, allowing my joy to become gloom over my sin. This is humility in the presence of God. He exalts!

Lord Jesus, I give you the works of my hands and the intentions of my heart this morning, fully submitted to You. Period.
