“Obey what I am commanding you this day. I am going to drive out before you the Amorite, the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite.
Exodus 34:11 NET
Obedience is what God is looking for!
He doesn’t need your money. He doesn’t need special favors or even times of sacrifice.
He is looking for people who are obedient to His Word.
And what happens when He finds obedient people? He shows them favor and blesses them.
He drives out the “nations” that would cause problems. He provides His people with safety and security. He blesses with a life that only He can provide and set in motion.
If you obey.
Jesus said if you love me, you will keep my commands.
It’s that simple, yet many don’t or won’t because His commands ask us to live differently than the world.
But you have to remember that this world is temporary. What God offers is eternal.
Don’t neglect the eternal for temporary pleasure.
Obey Him now and experience how God takes care of His people.
Father, give me strength to stand on and obey Your Word. Help me to always put You first in everything.
