Your Word for This Day: “A NEW Commitment”

Friday, January 29, 2016

“Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.Rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as bad as worshiping idols.” 1 Samuel 15:22-23

 Disobedience

It is so very easy, unbelievably so

For God’s children to walk in disobedience as we go

With good intentions in our hearts

And the feelings of others a great part

We  shut out the voice of reason

Leading us to commit treason

Against the One that we love in every season.

We chose to please others with our acts

Forgetting that they are taking us off track

And before you know it

There is no way of turning back.

It is never really planned

It’s just what the opportunity demands

And suddenly without realizing it

There’s a spiraling effect, bit by bit

That sends you tumbling

Into the abyss of languishing

And there you are, dealing

With more than you are capable of handling.

It’s like a web of entanglement

Of pain, fear, sorrow and all kinds of disappointment.

Yes, my friend, disobedience has a high price

It doesn’t  matter how high or far you are

You must constantly take a stand

To walk only as God’s word commands

Call on the Holy Spirit

To help you to avoid it

For the pain of disappointing the Father

Is greater than what you had considered

Every day we must make the  decision

Not to walk in disobedience.

I tell you it is not worth it

Have nothing to do with it

Run, flee, scream but don’t succumb to it

If you value your peace and relationship

It is really a great illusion

Coupled with a lot of manipulation

So do the calculation

And realize that it is all for your destruction

Choose to walk humbly in obedience

It doesn’t matter who is hurt by your compliance

God will vindicate and repay

You correct choice, without delay.

Everything that God has prepared for you this season will be accessed through obedience. This year, let’s make a new commitment to obey God’s word and the leading of the Holy Spirit. We will find that this is the recipe to success!

Have a great day and a fantastic weekend!
