#111 – Obedience

Good morning Christ-followers

Today I want to keep it really simple and just ask you one question to think about today. Here it is.

Are there things that God has asked you to do that you haven’t done them yet?

There are endless lists of things that the Bible is clear on for us to do. I don’t want to list them and I don’t want there to be any condemnation. I simply want us all to STOP and ask this question honestly. Now that you’ve stopped, LISTEN. What is the Holy Spirit saying?

Are there things, specific things, things that immediately come to mind, that God has asked you to do that you haven’t done yet?

You need to move from knowing to obeying and today is your day to do it. Obedience to God is the only real way to live. You might be thinking “If I do what God has asked it is going to cost me big time”. The truth is if you don’t do what God has asked you to do then you will pay in a far greater way. Obedience to God’s will is always the best way for us to live because God always knows what’s best. We often look at what is easier and more comfortable; God looks at what is best.

Make today the day you say yes to God. I know that in the long run you will be so glad that you did.

1 Samuel 15:22 (GW) Then Samuel said, “Is the LORD as delighted with burnt offerings and sacrifices as he would be with your obedience? To follow instructions is better than to sacrifice.
