Submission is key in establishing priorities. There are some things that we want to do or that are important to us that are not part of God’s plan in this particular season. Being willing to surrender our agendas and take up what He has asked us to do will help ease the burden of too many things to do.
Sometimes it is our desire to fit something in that needs to wait and there may be other things that we are simply not equipped or appointed to do, even though we’d like to be doing them. It can be easy at times to think of submission as drudgery, but it actually sets us free when we do it with a pure heart.
Boundaries help us to know what we have to work with. We are living in a society that sends the message that we should be able to do whatever we want. This is contrary to how we were designed. We were made with limitations, strengths, weaknesses, and differences. The Body of Christ is supposed to work together. We need one another. We are not supposed to function each as separate entities, completely independent of one another.
