Obedience blesses.

Fearing God and deeply respecting His authority make you want to obey the Lord’s commands. Obedience brings blessings; disobedience has consequences.

According to Psychology Today, the average person makes 35,000 choices daily. As Christ-followers, we have 35,000 opportunities a day to choose Godly wisdom or worldly.

Knowing what the scriptures teach helps us apply the Lord’s wisdom to life. If we don’t know what God’s word says, we can’t apply it to our choices.

“I could say I didn’t see the email, but then I would be lying.”  Receiving an early morning request for help, my human nature wanted to unsee the words. God wants us to develop integrity, not deceit. Once known, we can’t unknow something. 

Living for God means choosing Him repeatedly, not only in the big but also in the small ones. God blesses our efforts and numbers our days.

Lord, forgive us when we make poor decisions. Thank You for giving us life to the fullest as we follow and obey You.  Help us make life-giving decisions today based on Your word. In all things, let us honor and serve You. IJNIP. Amen
