All throughout Scripture we are told to obey God. Not only that, but to give God the obedience that is our very being; giving our all! But, that just can’t be right! There are too many troubles, and heart aches now to trust in God alone? Correct, or incorrect?
* Joshua 1:8 – This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
I remember when I was little, sprawling out in front of my door, moaning in dismay. The truth was, I was sick, but I didn’t want to taste that disgusting medicine on my tongue. The thought startled me, scared me even! So, I just listened to my Mom telling me to take my medicine, while still trying to hide from the fact I was going to have to take it, whether or not it was willingly.
I think, that sometimes we do the same thing in life! We hear God reasonably telling us what we need to do, but, we don’t want to do these things because they are not in line with our plans,they startles us, maybe even scares us! So, we just go on, ignoring His guiding voice with excuses like mine, “It tastes bad!”
Will we ever realize that without us following God, we will never get to where we need to be? Just like, I had to realize I had to take that medicine in order to get better!
Obedience to God is not a multiple choice; if you are a Christian your obedience to God is what will mould you into who, and what, you need to be! The God of the Old Testament, is the same God of today, and what God asked of the prophets then, He asks of you now!
This world will be troublesome, and give us excuses not to follow Christ, but maybe, you should look beyond the daily reasons ‘why not,’ and, instead see, ‘why to!’ God is a God of reasons, but that doesn’t mean we will always see them! God works in mysterious ways, just obey, and one day you will see!!
And that, ‘why to,’ is always because: God says so!!
Trust- Believe- Obey! They come hand in hand <3
And, above all, always remember Jesus loves you!!
For Jesus first loved me <3
Mary Kate is a writer who met Jesus at the age of seven! There was plenty of distractions, and troubles that led her astray, but Jesus always found her and brought her back! Her prayer is this, “Lord, let me inspire others, today, to follow you!”
“I’m a pretty random person, in fact, it’s a miracle I can write something that makes sense. Hehe.”
“The Lord Jesus loves you!”
M.K. and I would love to hear from you. Is it possibly for Christians to live obedient in today’s world?
