"If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:" (Isaiah 1:19)
Is your level of obedience to God's word match up to your level of knowledge of God's word?
Many Christians hear the clear teaching of the Word of God but they have already made up their mind to do it 'their way'. Man's way will lead to ruin and devastation while God's way will lead to prosperity and victory.
There is only one time where the word 'success' is mentioned in scripture and it does not refer to having a big beautiful house, new cars, a boat, motorcycle, and 2.5 kids.
Joshua 1:8 states, "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success."
According to the Bible, the way to success is obedience to what is written in the word of God.
Obedience to the Bible equals success. Day after day, I see Christians that are in direct disobedience to the word of God and yet they complain when things go wrong in their lives. Now how is our obedience to the Bible? Pray and ask the Lord to show you where you could improve your level of obedience. Everyone of us could improve our level of obedience... Let us all determine to start obeying more today!
The Degree of Your Obedience
WILL ALWAYS EQUAL
