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

Reflect

As a group, women are adverse to the thoughts of anyone lording over us. We've been raised to believe that no one should stand in the way of our goals and dreams - that we have the right to do anything we want.

But as believers, we have a different view, for we must willingly submit ourselves to the lordship of Christ. We put him in charge. We turn our lives over to him. We ask him to guide us; we follow. It doesn't mean we don't make plans or pursue our passions; it just means we hold the plans and passions loosely, always seeking God's will.

We must bring both our will (what we want) and our affections (those passions that send us following our hearts) under Christ's lordship.

Until He is Lord of all, He is not really Lord at all.

Pray

King Jesus, I want You to be Lord of every area of my life.
