Obeying His Word blesses us, strengthens our relationship with Him, and allows Him to continue transforming us into the image of Christ. So it’s no wonder why we’re met with such opposition from evil doers.
But when we choose obedience over obsession, Christ-like over carnal, humility over haughtiness, we send the enemy a clear and distinct message that he can no longer muddy up the waters of right and wrong—we simply won’t allow it. That through our commitment of obedience this very day, our priorities now align with God’s Word and are no longer dictated by this world.
Don’t let the enemy talk you out of asking your Heavenly Father to reveal any disobedience in your life. Ask for His forgiveness and for His help to walk in agreement with Him today.
