Obedience/(Life Principle #2)

Obey God and leave all the consequences to Him.

As we grow in our walk with the Lord, obedience becomes a cornerstone to intimacy with Him. When He calls us to obey Him, He isn’t telling us what to do merely to exert control over us-He’s setting a framework of goodness around our lives that also forms a hedge of protection from evil.

When we obey God, we choose to follow Him rather than go our own way. Obedience ushers us into the blessing of His life-giving presence-and aligns us with the goodness of His kingdom plans further down the road. That’s why He asks us to obey and trust Him with everything that comes next.

When you believe God loves you perfectly and that He is absolutely worthy of your trust, you don’t have to worry about the future. You can face any uncertainly with total confidence and joy. Obedience, then, is an act of secure love.
