It may sound so simple but it is something that we have to confront or chose on a daily basis. We have to make the daily decision to obey Jesus and the Word that he gave us. We take for granted the power of obedience and the blessings that follow.
God is always faithfully pulls through when we simply say yes to Him on a daily basis. Obedience takes perseverance. Things don't always happen the way that we want them to. Life can take sudden turns and we are tempted to try and do things our way and on our terms instead of sticking to God's plan. Take heart that bad things are happening as they are can be a sign that you're on the right track and disturbing the devils plans!
When I first became a Christian, my connect leader or cell group leader wrote me a quote that I still think of often. It said "Obedience unlocks what God has for me tomorrow". If we are obedient with the little God has given and say yes to the small things and the big things, we will reap the benefits! He doesn't have mediocre things for your life.
He has grandiose plans and things for you to do, abundantly more than you could ask or imagine! Obey Him and enjoy the ride!
"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to the power that is at work within us"
"However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name"
1 Peter 4:16
"And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love."
2 John 6
