Obedience! It's What Matters Most.
King Saul was Israel’s first king. He was appointed by God. He was anointed by God. He was empowered by God’s Spirit. In other words, he was given everything he needed in order to win. God set him up for victory. Saul had one problem however, he didn’t obey God’s commands and because of this instead of winning, the kingdom was eventually stripped from him.
I want to present to you a simple case. Could it be that success in life boils down to one thing…your obedience? Look at Joshua 1:8
Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. (NLT)
If there ever was such a thing as a formula for success, God has given it to us.
Read God’s Word + Meditate + Obey = Success in everything you do.
It sounds real simple, almost too simple, but God has promised us if we will simply do what he has instructed us to do we will win. We won’t just win in some things, we will win in everything. As you consider every area of your life, is there is one area where you are not doing what God has instructed? I bet you are not winning in that area.
The good news it can all turn around with one simple thing…obedience.
Regardless of whether it’s work, home, friends, play, church, giving, serving it doesn’t matter. Read what God has said about it and then go do it because the victory is in your obedience. So go obey, leave the results to him and he has promised you will win, because God’s best is found in your obedience.
