Our Lord places a lot of emphasis on obedience. Unlike man’s demands of obedience to foster control, our Lord’s commandment to obey is for our good. Remember, Isaiah 1:19 (NKJV), “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.”
Have you ever found yourself in trouble because of something you did wrong? If you allow Satan to convince you that because you brought trouble upon yourself, God won’t help you, you will miss your deliverance!
