It’s important for us to be submissive to God and His Word because in doing so, we will be able to fulfill the plan of God for our lives. Jesus is the perfect example of what submissiveness means because He was obedient until death.
Philippians 2:9-10 “Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth.”
Be attentive to every word that God has spoken to you, and implement these words in your life, be submissive and do all that He wants you to do, and God will lift you up to a place that you can never think of.
