DISOBEDIENCE

Today’s apostate church teaches how to get what YOU DESIRE, not what God’s desire is for you. How often do we hear people clinging to “I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me” and God will give us the desires of our hearts? People take scripture out of context and cling to whatever justifies what they want never giving any consideration to the Lord at all. This is how tricky the devil is and how easily he has fooled so many people in this generation of the self-focused and self-centered. -Admin-

To him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin. James 4:17 (NKJV)

Lack of obedience is one of the greatest hindrances to discovering God’s plan for your life. If you are seeking to know God’s will in a certain matter, but an area of disobedience is present, do not be surprised if God appears silent. Faith and obedience go hand in hand. He wants you to follow in faith what He has taught you up to this point.

All of the Lord’s principles and directions have a special function in shaping your life and character to be more like Christ’s. In fact, God’s ultimate goal is to conform you to the image of His Son. When you choose to ignore some part of what He is trying to teach you, you sin and hinder His growth process and remain unprepared for what He has in store.

The key to understanding His will for you is coming to the point where you want what God wants MORE than you want what you desire. In other words, you value His plans more than your own. You know that His way is the best way, no matter how good other options look. When you demonstrate this understanding by willing obedience, your ears are tuned to hear His voice.
