James 4:6,7. Submit means to rank or arrange under. Submission comes before authority. Submission is not: 1.)easy – it involves suffering, not getting my way (1 Peter 2:13). 2.) agreement. 3.) weakness – meekness is not weakness. 4.) forced. Submission to God starts in children. Proverbs 23: 13, 14 ; Proverbs 22:15; Ephesians 6:4. Humility is knowing who you are in Christ. The more humble you become the more grace you will receive and the more grace you receive the more God will use you.
