Jesus answered and said, ’I thank You, Father . . . that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes’ —Matthew 11:25
Obedience is the key to my relationship with God. I am either obedient or not. It is really that simple. Obedience is the conduit through which communication and blessings flow. Disobedience, conversely leads to Darkness rather than Light.
Having the right mind and attitude toward God’s Word and Spirit will deepen my relationship with God beyond anything I could dream. I must approach with the mindset to obey what God says. God will reveal more and more of Himself as I walk in obedience.
The Holy Spirit will teach me all things, not by my careful study but by my careful obedience. Revelation doesn’t come through time but strict adherence to listening and obeying God in all things. Regardless of the size of the task, great or small, God expects complete obedience. It matters not how important I deem a project, God will not relent until I obey in the smallest of details and tiniest of tasks. As I once heard: “partial obedience= complete disobedience”.
