Joshua 3:8 (KJV)

And thou shalt command the priests that bear the ark of the covenant, saying, When ye are come to the brink of the water of Jordan, ye shall stand still in Jordan.

God does not require us to understand His will, Just obey it, even if it seems unreasonable….

Do you often find yourself wondering why God doesn’t answer your prayers, or why, despite all your best efforts, the circumstances of your life still don’t work out!

The answer could lie in your level of obedience to God.

If you have received Jesus Christ as your Savior and are still experiencing great spiritual frustration, there may be an area of disobedience in your life that you have not dealt with.

Perhaps God has asked something og you, and in response, you have either ignored His words or done only part of what He asked.

True obedience to God means doing what God says, when He says it, how He says it should be done; as long as He says to do it- regardless of whether you understand the reasons for it- until what He says is accomplished.

Before you try to make a list of everything God has ever asked you to do or not to do, consider this: Is there one particular area of your life in which you struggle to obey God’s Word?

As you read the scripture does He continually bring a specific sin to your attention? When you go to Him in prayer, does the same issue surface repeatedly?

If the Lord is bringing something to your mind right now, consider this: It could be that you have been living in the same uncomfortable situation for years because at some point, you chose to do things your way instead of God’s way.

Understanding this key distinction between your way and God’s way can make a tremendous difference in your life.

My prayer for you- my petition to God on your behalf – is that you will  choose to obey Him, even if you don’t understand why He asks you to do something.

That way, you can become the person that He wants you to be, do the work that He desires of you, bear the fruit He enables you to bear, and receive the blessings He has prepared for you.
