Blessing of Obedience

Click here to listen to blog
God blesses those people
who want to obey him
more than to eat or drink.
They will be given
what they want!

Matthew 5:6

When your heart, mind and hands are determined to obey God He will give you what you want! And what then will He give you? It is quite simple. If you want to obey God He will give you the daily opportunity to do it.

But the nature we inherited from Adam sets itself against obedience. It wants to find a path to the blessings without obedience, while the Spirit guides the follower of Jesus into the blessings of obedience!
When you say "no" to God even in the smallest matter you are replaying the tragedy of Eden with all its heartache and suffering. But when you say "yes" to God's smallest whim you declare the Glory of God to the entire universe!

The most amazing thing about obeying God is this: Everything God asks you to do, He could do Himself. He could even transform your heart so that you had no choice, no option of disobedience. So God wants something accomplished in this world and He looks at His child and says "You do it!" I get to set my hand to do the will of Almighty God! The awesomeness of that thought is almost heart stopping.

As a child of God, I am employed in the family business of rescuing those who do not know Jesus. So I am not only made in God's image as a human being, but I am also allowed to do what He wants done in the world!

"Lord, bless me today with opportunities to obey You. May my hands and feet and every word that I speak be dedicated to the purpose of doing Your will. Thank You Jesus. Amen."
