Many people do not like to be told what to do; however, we all have an obligation to do something. We all have a duty here on earth. We are told in the Bible to fear God and obey His commands. Doing this will help us to stay focused on Him so we won’t stray and fall prey to the things of the world. Fearing God and obeying Him will help us do the right thing in all situations and stay away from sin.
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 “That’s the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty. God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, we know You know all we do. We know You have put us here on earth for a reason. We know we have a purpose and we need to be obedient to You and follow through. Help us today Lord to work toward that purpose knowing You will help us along the way. Help us to know what to do today that will be pleasing to You and be according to Your will. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
