The easiest and hardest thing to do is totally submit our lives to God.

Prior to our submission, the thought of surrendering ourselves to God seems difficult. We feel like it’s too difficult to follow God’s commands and it seems like we’ll miss out on a lot of fun. You know who’s behind these thoughts? You guessed it, the devil. He’ll make it seem like total submission is a death sentence to our freedom and joy. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

For those who have submitted themselves to God, we realize it’s one of the easiest things we could do. What makes it so easy? God’s benefits. God makes sure our submission is not in vain. He makes sure we’re well compensated for our efforts. He knows some of things He requires will be difficult to our flesh, but as we consistently submit to Him, His benefits far outweigh the initial discomfort. The more we submit to Him, the easier it becomes.

Don’t listen to the lies of Satan. Submit every aspect of your life to God and reap the benefits of submission.

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