You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“The Angel of the Lord said to her, “Return to your mistress, and submit yourself under her hand.” – Genesis 16:9

Hagar despised Sarah when she became pregnant, and so Sarah begun to dealt with her harshly. Though Hagar was pregnant, she ran away from Sarah to a far place. The angel of the Lord told her that God has heard her affliction (v11). 

1.      Even today God knows your pain and affliction that you are going through in your life because of the terrible situation that you are facing or because of someone who is dealing with you harshly.

But then the Angel of the Lord asked Hagar to go back and be submissive to her mistress Sarah. If you see in a human perspective the word that came from the Lord to Hagar through the Angel was a tough one. How come God can ask her to go back and be submissive to the one who has dealt harshly with her?  

2.      Even in your life someone around you might be dealing with you harshly. But if God asks you to be submissive, obey God and be submissive to those who are dealing with you harshly.

God asked and Hagar simply obeyed God’s word without any argument. She had returned back to Sarah and submitted herself to her through which she actually had submitted her life to God’s plan and God multiplied her descendants as He promised her. 

3.      God has a plan about your life. Today you may not understand that and it might be against your wish and will. But if you obey to God’s voice and plan, surely you will multiply and your life will be filled with God’s richest blessings exceedingly.
