The enemy’s weapons: Lack of submission

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 13:54

What is biblical submission?

Biblical submission is voluntarily choosing to put oneself under someone else’s leadership.

Can a biblical submission be forced?

Since biblical submission is a voluntary choice, it can never be forced. As soon as it is forced, it is no longer submission, it is dictatorship.

Who should we submit to?

We should submit to God

Jam. 4:7
Therefore submit to God …

We should submit to authority

Tit. 3:1
Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities …

We should submit to each other

Eph. 5:21
submitting to one another in the fear of God.

We should submit to our leaders

Hebr. 13:17 (NIV)
Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority …

In what way is the lack of submission a weapon for the enemy?

If I refuse to put myself under another person’s leadership, I might feel free, but I have no authority. We only have authority when we are under authority ourselves, and it is when we have authority, that we can make the enemy flee.

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

The bible says that we should submit to God. Some might think that we only have to submit to God, and that we don’t have to submit to leaders. However, a real submission to God means a submission to His order as well.

Do you find it difficult to put yourself under someone’s leadership?

Does it feel unsafe? Remember that it is ultimately God you are submitting to, and He is able to take care of you.
