Simple Obedience

Oh, that they had such a [mind and] heart in them always [reverently] to fear Me and keep all My commandments, that it might go well with them and with their children forever!

Deuteronomy 5:29

If we will simply listen to the Lord and do what He says, things will go well for us. Most people have no idea how simple it is sometimes to relieve stress, and Satan works to keep it that way! He works to complicate people's lives in every imaginable way because he knows the power and joy simplicity brings.

Satan wants to exhaust the energies God has given us by keeping us too busy and stressed out trying to handle all the things complicating our lives. He know that if we learn to simply obey God, we will turn that power and energy against him by hearing and doing the work God directs!

The transformations many people desire in different areas of their lives come through forming a pattern of obeying God in the little things. He may ask you to come away and visit with Him for half an hour or an evening instead of watching television, going to a party, or talking on the phone. The more consistent you are in keeping yourself still enough to hear His voice and then obey His promptings, the sooner the needed work will be done in you for the transformation to be complete. God uses our obedience in the little things to transform our lives.

No matter what the situation, listen to the Lord and obey. Proverbs 3:6 states, "In all your way know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths" You may not understand the reasons the Lord asks you to do certain things or see any changes or results immediately, but keep obeying the Lord and things will go well with you and your children.
