1 Samuel 15:22(KJV)

22. And Samuel said, “Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams”.

Remember, whenever you feel as though you don’t understand what God is doing and/or allowing in your life you have to “consider the Source”, you have to “Trust God” and you also have to “Be Obedient”.

The bible states that “obedience is better than sacrifice (1 Samuel 15:22)” which should tell you a lot about our God. God places great significance on obedience. God would much rather you be obedient to His instruction than for you to give Him sacrificial praise, money offerings, fasting and etc.

Why do I bring obedience up? Because when God gives you instruction and you’re in a situation where you don’t understand what’s going on in your life, it is most important for you to be obedient and to trust in the One who does understand what is going on. There are blessings that follow a person who is obedient just as there are curses that follows a person who is disobedient.

Beloved, God’s Word is instructions for your life! Trust that God knows what He is doing and follow the instructions that He gives!

God bless you is my prayer!
