It is SO vital that we obey the Lord.
But for a lot of people they think something God tells them is not very spiritual, or they begin to think,
‘Well why or what difference does that make? How does that help the Kingdom?’
And if you fail to obey… the Lord sees the BIG picture; He has the overall plan.
I was thinking of Paul’s partners in Philippians, where he talked about his partnership with them and he
said, ‘You, you only sent to me once and again.’ Well, he’s got all these churches under him, all these
people. And when he was in a situation, believing God and standing, THEY were the ONLY ones!
What if they hadn’t obeyed God?
Now, I’m sure when the Lord dealt with them, ‘Send this to him. Do this for him,’ they are thinking,
‘Well, he’s got all these churches. He’s got all these other people.’
But that’s how people mess up.
I’m convinced that we don’t know how significant it is that we just do what we’re told… we obey Him.
You know, Jesus’ mother said some of the greatest words to them.
‘Whatever He says to you, just do it.’
And there are miracles attached to the simplest acts of obedience.
