OVERCOMING BY SUBMITTING
I’m against slavery. Are you? How many slaves are you saving today? “But Pastor Troy, I can’t get involved.” There are more slaves alive right now than there has ever been in the history of the world and you can’t help somebody?
I don’t mean to be ugly, I’m just saying that we can’t fool the Lord. You see, that place where the rubber meets the road is how we serve. Not our theories or what we say we would do. Not what we wish would happen, but how we actually serve. Jesus understands this.
There are going to be many of you who have stood with us in rescuing slaves and Jesus Christ is going to say, “Thank you for coming and rescuing Me when I was being abused.” You’ll ask Him, “Lord, when did I ever do that?” He’ll say to you as He did to His disciples.
“Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it one of the least of these My brethren you did it to Me.”— Matthew 25:40
It is in the place of serving where you find authority. It’s in that place the Spirit of God is made manifest.
Out of all the forms that Jesus could have taken, He humbled Himself and became a servant. He didn’t come in the form of a banker, a powerful king or military leader, Jesus was a servant, Why? Because He had to have authority. It’s in serving that we are given authority. It gives you authority over the devil.
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” — James 4:7
The word submit means “to line up under” or “to act as a soldier that is serving in the military.” You don’t only get authority from resisting the devil. You get authority through submitting to the Lord then you act upon your authority and confront the enemy. Be that servant submitted and serving in your God-given authority.
