Daily Fountain 2017 - Go Back And Submit





Monday May 22

Bible Reading:     Gen. 16: 7 - 16
Topic:         Go Back And Submit

God is not the Author of confusion. He recognizes order and equally expects His people to obey rules.

After she ran away from home, the Angel of the Lord told Hagar to go back and submit to her mistress Sarai.

Today many of us would have advised night vigils, dry fasting and violent prayers for Sarai's death so she could possess her possessions in Abram's family.

But God knows that Hagar was not justified in her conduct.

Be careful about how you pass judgment in matters over which you do not have the complete picture, especially when it concerns marriage, servant and master misunderstanding e.t.c.

After the instruction to submit, the Angel revealed God's plan for Hagar and the child she would bear.

There's always God's will in every situation and good success )Josh. 1: 9) would come as we find and follow it.

Please let us learn to submit to God's will in every situation so that peace can reign.

Humble yourself so that God will fulfill His plans for you. Don't destroy your future, marriage and other expectations because of worthless ego

Prayer:

Give me the grace oh Lord to hear and obey Your Word so that peace will reign in my life and in my family, Amen

Memory Verse:   Gen. 16: 9

"And the Angel of the Lord said unto her; Return to thy mistress and submit thyself under her hands"
