Don’t Jump Ship – Be Obedient

Just reflecting this morning on some questions I had been asked recently in regards to listening to God, balancing emotion and being obedient.

The best thing you can ever do if you are trying to figure out what you should be doing in life is nothing! Yes nothing, go back to the last thing God told you to do. Have you accomplished that? Have you succeeded at that? Well then do that!

It is easy to let emotion and feelings guide what we do and what we want to do in life, unfortunately our emotions are largely deceitful (Jer 17:9) and we have to rely on God and not ourselves. It would be way easier if I could just go with what I feel and do what makes me the happiest all the time. That is not the reality that we live in.

So all this to encourage you to be faithful in what God is calling you to do. Haters come and go, the fan fare comes and goes, the next greatest thing usually isn’t that great, the greener grass gets cut too, the parades come and go even the season your in will come and go. Be obedient in what God is asking now!

Happy Thursday, Keep Going!
