Text: Deuteronomy 28:1-13
Memorise: Deuteronomy 28:1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe [and] to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:(KJV)
It is good to obey instructions because it is the only way to avoid failure, when we are been directed by an higher authority to do something, we should endeavor to obey for it will be recorded for us, Now we let’s talk about the most high.
GOD has us commandments, instructions and pattern we should follow everyday of our life, so the command did not just come, but it came for our own good, so we should obey them, it is not negotiable or optional but a must for all who wants to avoid failure and losing the presence of GOD, GOD gave us laws and how to live our life if we want him in our life, it is good to be obedient in all things and not some things or occasions just as king Saul did and he lost the kingdom 1 Samuel 15:1-35, “Obedience to GOD will drag audience to you” because you will be a light and you know everybody wants light, when you obey GOD you will not regret it because even your enemies will be pleased with you , when you obey GOD, GOD will be with you all around…
When thou passest through the waters, I [will be] with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.(KJV)
Now the question is how obeying GOD? Before we complain on any issue we should ask our self, are we obedient to GOD, did we follow HIS directives for our life?
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.(KJV)
Check all the commands in the bible, how many of them are you obeying don’t delay or deceive yourself because there is nothing you can use to exchange obedience….. For obedience is better than sacrifice.
Note: Obeying GOD’S instructions is superior to all other instructions, so any instructions that contradict GOD’S word should not be obeyed by Christians.
Action Point: Pray to GOD to help you always to forget self and to follow him at all times.
