The Practice of Submission - Day 27
Jesus gave up His will (what He wanted to happen) to God. Instead of doing what He wanted to do, He did what His Father wanted Him to do. I hope that makes sense. As you already know, each Spiritual Discipline has its freedom. That’s right! These Spiritual Disciplines bring freedom to our lives! When we first think of the word “discipline” we think about something difficult like work, or something negative. Drum roll! Practicing the Spiritual Disciplines brings FREEDOM to your life! It’s true! Submission brings the freedom of being able to lay down the terrible burden of always needing to get our own way. “The obsession to demand that things go the way we want them to go is one of the greatest bondage's in human society today!”
Today: I hope that during the day you will read that 2 or 3 times. Let it sink in. Have a great day! There is incredible freedom in letting God have control!
