In war, enemies are often face to face in a field of battle. One side gets the upper ground, seizes control and takes prisoners. The command is given. "Lay down your arms; surrender!" That action is very difficult to fulfill. Arms of protection offer feelings of security. To drop them leaves us vulnerable and insecure. To surrender means we admit defeat; we are no longer in control of the situation. On any battle field these conditions spell failure. In our relationship with God when we lay down our arms and surrender we experience the sweet taste of success!
We must stop fighting His authority and control in our lives, lay down our arms, and run into His everlasting arms! Surrendering to His perfect will leads to peace. Submit to Him today. All will one day be in subjection under the feet of Jesus. (Hebrews 2:8) Don't resist the King! The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are not the enemy! They liberate us from the enemy, sin! "You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit; as your fathers did, so do you (Acts 7:51 NKJ)." Lay down your arms!
