OBEDIENCE RELEASES GOD’S POWER IN YOUR LIFE
Your life becomes a supernatural life when you obey God.
When God calls you to break camp and move your tent to higher, tougher ground — into a new, unfamiliar realm of obedience and faith — at first it seems like a challenging and even a frightening prospect. But once you’ve conquered those initial fears and established your obedience in that new realm, you’re ready to settle into God’s ordained place for your life with a higher and deeper level of peace and trust in Him.
Remarkably, as soon as you’re settled into that new place, it will probably be time for you to move up to a higher realm once again! And just like the last time, once you’ve obeyed the Lord and the fear fades, your faith will move up another notch. That means you’ll probably be ready to receive another new directive from Heaven that will continue to develop you, challenge you, and conform you into the image of Jesus Christ.
Following the Lord’s instructions is a never-ending assignment in the life of an obedient believer.
now absolutely confident that whenever He tells us to step forward by faith, He will enable us to finish what He tells us to start. The earthquake of emotions I used to feel in the pit of my stomach is gone, even though Denise and I and our team are working on the biggest assignments God has ever asked of us — steps of faith that would have scared the life out of me when I was younger! Yet we’re moving ahead with absolute peace and confidence in our hearts, because we know that God is leading us and He is faithful to bring to pass what He has promised us. After seeing God’s faithfulness demonstrated again and again in our lives, we are now absolutely confident that whenever He tells us to step forward by faith, He will enable us to finish what He tells us to start. Through the years, we’ve also learned that if we continue obeying the Lord, it won’t be long before the Holy Spirit puts a new challenge in our hearts. Then we’ll leave our present comfort zone to enter into the next God-ordained phase of our lives.
We’ll have to face the point of no return again — and we can hardly wait!
