In Luke 1:38 Mary said, I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true. When the angel told Mary that God had chosen her to bear his Son, she submitted to God's plan willingly. She did this even though it would have meant public ridicule and the loss of her reputation because she fell pregnant outside of marriage. We are called to submit to and obey God. James 4:7 says, Submit yourselves to God. Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you.
Many people don't like the idea of submission, they prefer to do their own thing. The truth is, that if you don't submit to God, you are submitting to the Devil, the world, and your own selfish desires.
Who have you been submitting to?
