KEY SCRIPTURE: 2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV “(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)”
Now we bring our discussion of the supremacy of the word of God home, or we make it more personal. To acknowledge the supremacy of the word is to walk by faith and not by sight. Life is spiritual, and the earlier we accept that the better. God our Father is the great unseen reality. His influence is over and within every aspect of life. His word communicates how He relates with various issues of life. The man who submits to whatever God says about various issues has placed his or her life under His supremacy. This is what living by faith is all about. Jas 4:7 KJV Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
The positive relationship between His words and your actions is submission. Submission involves making your will to bow to God and His word. Your ego and appetites are the first point of call which must be submitted to God. Col 3:5 KJV “Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:” To mortify means to kill. The scripture says, kill your ego and appetite that does not glorify God
Any man who has been successful in controlling his appetites by the word can trust the word of God in every other area of life. The word of God becomes his motivation and control in all that he does. If the Lord says I am with you, he unconsciously relates with all situations that the Lord is present with him. When sickness comes, he knows the divine life of God in him cannot be overpowered by that disease, so he thanks God for divine health. If he is in debt he does not fear, but quietly in his heart, he declared the Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. This man has learnt to make the word Supreme in all matters of life.
I am submitted to God and His word. Because I fear Him, I have no fear for any other thing. I trust Him with my life, my future, my finance and everything. My life is secured by His word and power. My ways keep getting brighter and brighter. I am a success
