God I Will Obey You IF –

0

Does this sound familiar? Though you may not tell God these words, or even think them exactly, is it possible you sometimes feel this way in your heart? And is some or even all of this why you are holding back from being totally devoted to the Lord Jesus Christ? Is your lifestyle a reflection of any or all of this?

God, I will obey you if what you tell me to do feels good.

     God, I will obey you if your will makes me happy.

     God, I will obey you if there is something in it for me.

     God, I will obey you if your will fits my plans.

     God, I will obey you if your will is easy and comfortable and feels safe and secure.

     God, I will obey you if I believe your plans for me are risk-free.

     God, I will obey you if there is no sacrifice involved.

     God, I will obey you if I don’t have to pay a price.

     God, I will obey you if I do not have to give up anything or anyone.

     God, I will obey you if your will is my will.

     God, I will obey you when I feel like it if I feel like it.

      Friend, Jesus Christ is Lord. Let me repeat that. He is LORD. He is Lord of Lords, King of Kings. He is Savior of the world. He will reign forever.

There is never ever any excuse whatsoever for us not to humble ourselves and lovingly, reverently, faithfully, devotedly OBEY THE LORD.

Before Jesus did His first miracle, His mother Mary told the servants something we should live by.

“His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.”” John 2:5 NKJV

And consider what the psalmist said about doing God’s will.

“I delight to do Your will, O my God, And Your law is within my heart.”” Psalms 40:8 NKJV

Let us all get rid of our excuses and respond to Jesus when He tells us to do something with OBEDIENCE. For Christ’s sake, oh yes!
