OBEDIENCE TO GOD IS OPPOSING THE WORLD
There is a children’s game called opposite day where they do the opposite of what is normal, what someone says or what should be done. It is usually a harmless and fun children’s game. If we as adults, however, played that game in our real lives it could cause hard times. We do that when we sin. We do the opposite of what God wants us to do. There are many types of sin; however, there are just as many ways to live right when we choose to do the opposite of what is wrong with every action, every thought and every word. Obedience isn’t a one time thing. We must choose to obey God in all things. To obey means to conform, submit or comply. When we obey God, we will be doing the right things.
Galatians 6:9 “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us to never get tired of doing what is right in Your eyes. We know we sin but we do have a choice to do the opposite of what the word wants and to do what is right in all our actions. Help us today to be more aware of what we are doing in every action, every thought and every word so we are conforming to Your will, submitting completely to You and comply with Your word. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Because we are always taking action, we must always to take the actions God wants us to take.
Because we are always thinking, we must have the thoughts God wants us to have.
Because we are always listening and learning, we must fill our minds with what God wants us to learn.
Because we are always looking, we must seek the things only God wants us to seek.
Because we are always reaching out for hope and joy, we must only reach out to God who truly has all the answer we need.
Because we are always wanting to do make an impact in the world, we must do what God asks and be willing to do more.
Philemon 1:21 “I am confident as I write this letter that you will do what I ask and even more!” (NLT)
