Somebody knows something you do not know. That information may be invaluable. You have to listen to receive it. Something inside you may want to scream out for attention. You have a longing to be heard. Restrain yourself. Learn to listen. Remember, God, talks. How often? As often as you are willing to listen. Begin Today With Prayer. Yesterday is in the tomb. Tomorrow is in the womb. The most important day of your life is today. Listen to Him in your prayers every day.
YOU HAVE SOMETHING THAT SOMEONE ELSE NEEDS
Obedience Is The Only Thing God Has Ever Required of Man. That is why your smallest act of obedience is documented and celebrated by God. Anything you give attention to, you will do well in.
You have something that someone else needs. God gave it to you. Find it and use it. David was good with a slingshot. What do you do well? The season of war is the time to do it.
The big picture is seeing your future reward for your present endurance. Losers make decisions that create the desired present. Champions make decisions that will create the desired future.
OBEDIENCE IN THE WORKPLACE CONSISTS OF CAREFUL LISTENING
Bosses are not always easy to please. They may even be the sandpaper God is using to polish the rough edges of your life. It is awesome that the Creator of this universe stopped long enough to personally advise employees to be obedient to their employers. Obedience in the workplace consists of careful listening, taking notes, and total concentration on completion of a task. Do it. God will prosper you for it.
CAREFULLY CONSIDER ANY ADVICE YOUR PARENTS GIVE YOU
Your reaction toward your parents influences God’s reaction towards you. In the Ten Commandments, the commandment to honour your parents was the first to be followed by a promise. Carefully consider any advice your parents give you. Honour it. Contribute to their life. Take their opinions seriously. It will be forever written on the mind of God.
OBEDIENCE IS IMPOSSIBLE UNLESS YOU DISCERN HIS VOICE
Things happen in the presence of God that does not happen anywhere else. When you get in His presence, you think differently. You talk differently. Your best comes out of you. So get started today. Like any damaged product, we must return to our manufacturer for repair.
God talks often. You will have to spend time with Him to know His voice. Obedience is impossible unless you discern His voice.
