What does it mean to be obedient?
To be obedient it means that you are complying or willing to comply with orders or requests; submissive to another’s will.
Dear Heavenly Father, my prayer is that on today you use me as an empty vessel. I pray that you come through the words on this screen and touch someone so that they can make their ears available to hear what it is that you have to say. So that they will become obedient in your word and understand that you are preparing them for YOU! Dear Lord, please be with those that are confused as to what it is that they need to be doing in life. Lord, please bring clarity to those that are not sure which way to move in your light. Please bring peace to the person that needs to leave their job to do your will. Bring understanding to those that are confused about how to walk in your word. Dear Lord, I am asking that you show up and show out in the lives of your children who want to be and will be obedient in your word.
In Lord Jesus Name, Amen.
God “will give to each person according to what he has done.” To those who by pwersistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are self seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger.
In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.
We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
I remember growing up and being told to do something and I wouldn’t do it. I remember a few days ago being told to do something and I didn’t do it. I was/am that person that if you TELL me to do something, I am going to look at you half crazy like, “Don’t tell me what to do.” I don’t know what it is about being TOLD to do something. And the majority of the time that I am being TOLD what to do …. it is for my own good! Now isn’t that silly, to be led in the right direction and stop in my tracks hindering my own growth because I don’t like being told what to do?! So many times we are told to do the right thing, but because we are TOLD to do it, we don’t! Thank the Lord that in my youth that even when I was being stubborn or doing the things that I wanted to do in my own way, I did not cause in immediate or major harm to myself. By the Grace of God, He covered me!
What I have had to reflect on and learn is that it’s not ok to be disobedient. I still don’t like being TOLD what to do, but what I have had to learn is to redirect that thought process of me being TOLD what to do, to me being encouraged or empowered to do something that will better myself. I have had to realize the tone of being obedient and what that sounds like. The tone of obedience is that of being submissive and humbled. Understanding that what I am being TOLD to do is for my own good. It is for my growth. It is for my understanding. It is for my purpose. It is for my health. It is for the overall enhancement of my life and those around me in which I directly influence.
I have realized that being obedient isn’t always about you. Sometimes we have to be obedient so that the result of our own actions can bless someone else. We are here to serve Gods people and to do it with love. So if we can not love ourselves enough to be obedient to what God has called us to do, then how can we serve other people. There are people that are assigned to us in life. And if we are not walking in obedience to the Lord, then we may be blocking someone else’s blessing. When God tells you to do something then do it! You never know what brick he just laid to carry you down your Purpose Path ™!
