If we would start our day with Jesus each day, we could renew our mind and begin each morning how God intended. In Genesis 1:27-28 God instructs His people to SUBDUE the earth. We cannot accomplish this if we are off track as soon as we open our eyes.
If the enemy can get you off track, he can interrupt the tasks God has placed in your path to grow you and increase you. Sometimes we make our path much harder than it has to be. God first and everything will be added to you. So simply put, God first in the morning and everything will be added to your day. You will be equipped to tackle trials; God’s Word will fill you and spill out all over your day. When we start our day with Jesus, in prayer, we are strengthened. We can handle the obstacles with peace and joy, truly trusting God. People around you will wonder why you’re not angered, upset, or reacting in a way they believe is appropriate. This brings the witness of Christ that only He can provide. Having the peace of Christ is one of the biggest blessings we can receive. This kind of peace allows you to keep a composure that most do not understand. Knowing God is in control provides a special kind of relief.
To subdue means to overcome, quieten and bring under control. Overcome the worlds ways with Christ’s ways, quieten and bring under control the atmosphere around you with the things of Christ. Talk to Jesus, pray and watch your life increase. Get serious about living for Christ, I promise you won’t miss the worldly activities the devil has tricked you into thinking are so fun!! By the way—My mom has shared many times, stating, “FUN are the first three letters in funeral.” Be careful what you think is fun.
Genesis 1:27-28 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.
Philippians 2:13 For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.
Psalm 17:15 As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness.
