Hear and obey

Deuteronomy 28:1
Blessings for Obedience
“If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the world.

This promise starts off with ‘if you fully obey,’ that means you are aware of Him and since we can’t obey until we know what He is saying, that means we can hear Him speak to us in a way that we can understand. For the new Christian, this is through the Bible and God’s anointed servants… Preachers and teachers.

We don’t have to know everything to enter into a covenant with the Lord. We have to obey what we know.

Today there are two commandments that we must obey: Continue reading

Growing?

John Maxwell:


Most people underestimate the unimportance of nearly everything in their lives. They get distracted. As a result, they put growth on the back burner, and if they do grow, it happens accidentally instead of intentionally. Take a look at your calendar for the next twelve months. How much time have you specifically scheduled for personal growth? If you’re like most people, your answer will be none. Or you may have planned to attend one event in the coming year. That’s not going to cut it. Rework your calendar so you have an appointment with yourself for personal growth every day, five days a week, fifty weeks a year.

You might be thinking, What?
I don’t have time for that! That’s probably true. Do it anyway. If you want to
succeed, you need to do whatever it takes. Get up an hour early. Stay up an hour later. Give up your lunch hour. Put in extra time on the weekends. If you don’t, you’ll have to prepare to give up your dreams and any hope of reaching your potential.

⚔️ Consider The Cost

Luke 14:31-33 NKJV
[31] Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand?

[32] Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace. [33] So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple.

Forsake all that he has…
Jesus wants it all.
You’re not going to be able to continue doing things your way …
You’re going to have to learn to obey.
Nothing can be your number one thing but Him.
Don’t be so foolish to think you can walk the fence. You can’t.
You’re going to have to accept being called a Jesus freak.
