  • Respect HIS Authority

    When my brothers and I were
    younger, our parents would have date nights or functions leaving us with the
    incredible babysitters we always had. Before my parents would leave for
    whatever occasion they had that night, my dad would make sure to say to each of
    us sternly, “Respect his/her authority.”
    He was saying this to ensure that even though our parents were gone (WOOHOOO!),
    we respected the fact that while our parents were away, the babysitter had
    control. He or she was the one in charge.

    By doing this, my father was teaching us early
    on that in life we would face many authority figures whether it be a boss,
    older adults, or the police. Whoever it is in authority, the important thing is to respect these figures’ authority. Respect
    goes a long way with people. Sometimes
    authority figures tell us things that we do not want to hear; however, that
    does not give us the right to ignore or disregard their authority in our lives.

    Similarly God is the overarching
    authority figure that has a grand plan for our life, but His purpose for you in life depends on your reaction to His
    authority.
     

    Jeremiah 29:11 says, “‘For I know the plans I have for you…plans
    to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future’”
    (Jeremiah 29:11). God has promised us that His plan for our life is bright and
    wonderful, but we must give our lives over to God to let his plan prevail.  

    We must surrender to HIS authority in our
    lives.

    In the previous post, I talked
    about how sometimes God calls us to do hard things, and even though this is
    true, we will prosper in life because of God’s plan for us that he weaved
    together at birth. We were created to be a special part of God’s intricate plan
    for this world. We must submit our lives
    to Our Creator, the Grand Weaver, and to the one who will provide us with such
    a meaningful purpose in life.
    This is guaranteed to be one of the best
    decisions we will make in life.
