Willing & Obedient

Posted on Posted in Potential, Responsibility

                                        … eat the good of the land!

There are many promises in the Bible
… that tell us that God wants to bless us abundantly,
such as for instance …

      If you are willing and obedient,
      You shall eat the good of the land;
      Isa 1:19

However, so many people are obedient,
… doing all they can to obey God’s commandments,
yet they are NOT prospering,
… and are not eating the good of the land!
Why not?

      God said ‘willing and obedient’
      Obedience on its own is doing what you are told to do,
      … regardless of whether you want to or not!
      Is that what God wants or expects?

God gave us a free will, and He wants us to freely choose,
… and to honour Him with our lives,
also saying to us …

      that you may love the Lord your God,
      that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him,
      Deut 30:20

If you are willing, freely desiring to do what God says,
… because you want to walk in His good plans for your life, then
God’s presence and His promises will manifest in your life.

      A willing heart hears, and a willing heart receives!
