This has been a week of challenge to be obedient. WOW.. When God wants my attention He sure does everything in His power to make sure that I get the message. Everything from personal emails, to devotions to sermons. So…. Let me explain a little. Earlier this past week I was challenged by a mentor to consider doing something serious with regards to certain issues in my life. The idea of doing this challenge literally made me sick just to think about it. I got even angry at this person for mentioning this idea. I have/had a great deal of questions and as each has been answered it is becoming even more and more apparent that I am to do this thing and that the sooner start perhaps the sooner things will happen.
Since Wed. God has actually been revealing His will for me in the simple things.. Devotions on obedience (not just one or two but 10 each day). Today’s sermon was titled “Obedience Imperative” and in the sermon every single question that I had asked and had answered were not only answered but also re-answered. SO… How loud does God have to speak before I get the message???? Well, when I got to the truck this morning after church I typed a text to my mentor and told her that while I missed seeing her this morning we will definitely need to talk this out. And so we will be..
So, when faced with multiple confirmations to something do you still feel like maybe it is not God speaking? I am actually really and truly just being able to begin to see that this is a word from God.
So, I will be starting to at least allow my heart to begin to process this obedience. NO, I still in the flesh do not want to do this at all, Notta, no way, no how, it will be a cold day before I do this. Yet, seriously in my heart that belongs to God I want to do what He asks me to do…I want to be able to out of love for my Savior do this thing that my flesh is saying makes me a “wimp, wimp, wimp”
SO, I will keep you all updated over the next few weeks on how my obedience plays out. Will my flesh win or will my heart that belongs to God win… I am praying that my heart wins.. Because as in the sermon today “what do I have to lose if I just go ahead and obey?”
Be blessed my friends.
