From what I have read from the scripture so far,I have come to realize that obedience is a virtue,it is the best thing that can happen to any believer. A little Obedience to God’s word can change your entire life….
Now,Look at these…
The story of Esther; Esther got married to king Ahasuerus and became a queen because of her obedience to what Mordecai instructed her to do!
Ruth the Moabites also, she followed her mother in law to her homeland in Bethlehem after the husband died (Ruth 1:22). Ruth obeyed Naomi’s instructions to her before going to see Boaz(Ruth3:5). This single act of obedience got her married to Boaz, a very wealthy man in Bethlehem….
Disobedience on the other hand is a sin, a hinderance to blessing and a killer of believers faith.Some instances below…
Remember the story of queen Vashti and how she lost her crown to Esther as a result of her disobedience to king Ahasuerus’ order… Also how Saul lost his throne to David because of disobedience!
we cannot forget the story of Jonah; Jonah disobeyed God and spent three days in fish’s belly…This is exactly what happens to us when we disobey God;Disobedience keeps us away from God’s prepared blessings for us until obedience is attained.
Finally,from the above, I have realized that what hinders us from our blessings is disobedience of God’s word. The bible said that “the word of God is light” This light can only be attained through obedience to the “word”… Note that disobedience keeps us in darkness and prevents us from experiencing the blessings of God… Also note that nothing is good in darkness,mistakes are made in darkness, mention them… But the blessing of God can only be seen in the light… Thus,choose to OBEY God today!
