What about the Brakes? – Love Worth Finding – January 14

What about the brakes?

January 14

A man’s pride will bring him low, But the humble in spirit will retain honor. Proverbs 29:23

Have you ever taught someone to drive? What was the first thing you showed him? If you’re like me, even before I showed my children the ignition switch, the accelerator, or the blinker, I showed them the brakes.

Now suppose your learner said, “I don’t want to know anything about the brakes. I just want to know how to make this thing go!” You would probably reply, “You aren’t ready yet to learn to drive! Forget the accelerator. Before you can go, you’ve got to learn to stop.”                  

Put this in a spiritual realm. What if I asked you to submit to God and you said, “I’m not interested in submission. I want the victory!” James 4:7 is a striking verse both in its simplicity and its power: “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” What comes first to get the devil running? It’s not the power of your resistance until first you have submitted yourself to God.

God is not going to pour out His power upon you until He sees in you a spirit of submission.
