The Authority of God

Take a moment and look at what you are doing in your life. You may be a part of a ministry, a leader in a home, an employee, a student, or maybe you’re just a stay at home mom. What is your motivation in the decisions you make in doing these things? Is it because you want to?

A lot of the time we get so caught up in what we are doing that we don’t realize that we are staying far away from the path God has originally led us down. We build it up to what we think it should look like. There’s a problem here.

Is it really about what we think it should be like? It could be something as small as stage design to different ministries offered at your church. It may be what you desire, but is it what God desires?

We need to recognize if this is present in our lives because if it is we are living in sin. God is the one in the authority position, you were just appointed to serve Him. It’s not your choice to make but God’s. We need to submit to God and build it up for His good, not our own. Sometimes the biggest inconveniences in life are God’s way of telling us we need to trust Him with anything and everything. He is the almighty. He is Yahweh Yireh, the God who provides. We need to not worry, but submit to His mighty authority and let a Him work His will in our lives.
