Obedience Involves Commitment - Friday's Dose - 25th March 2017



“See to it that you complete the work you have received in the Lord” - (Colossians 4:17).

Thoughts for Today

If we are truly trusting in God’s plan and providence, then we will live out our faith in obedience to His will for our lives. Our trust in God is not meant to sit upon a shelf. We will face trials constantly, along with temptations and struggles that will put our faith in God to work.

Before God would use Abraham, Abraham had to take the first step of obedience and leave his pagan hometown, Ur. But on the way to Canaan, Abraham and his family settled in Haran, another pagan town, for six years. Abraham’s obedience was incomplete.

God does not want us to start out on His path and then stagnate. Obedience involves commitment and follow-through. How many times do we settle for something short of the Lord’s perfect plan for our lives? How many times do we set out in obedience, only to stop at the halfway mark?

God did not give up on Abraham. “The Lord had said to Abram, ‘Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you’” (Genesis 12:1). This time, Abraham did not stop until he reached Canaan.

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Show me if there is any area of my life where I have not completely obeyed you. I don’t want to settle for something less than what You have for me. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.
