New Blog Post: "Obedient To God"

Hebrews 5:8-10 NIV  He was a Son, He learned obedience from what He suffered and once made perfect, He became the Source of Eternal Salvation for all who obey Him and designated by God.

God is the One who teaches us how to be obedient. It is through suffering and allowing God to change our ideas and mind-set that we learn how to walk closer with God. God wants all His children to become into the image of His Son Jesus Christ. This is why He sent the Holy Spirit of God to live within us and to teach us how to do this. Having God’s Spirit living within us is the greatest insight we could ever have. He gives us the wisdom, knowledge and understanding to know what God wants us to do. As we read God’s Word and pray to Him through the Holy Spirit of God our faith and trust begins to come alive with the knowledge of God guiding and leading us into his perfect will.
Our lives must be built upon the foundation of our Lord Jesus Christ. When we build our lives upon Christ His life begins to overflow within our hearts and we begin to see our life changing. Walking in submission and being obedient to God is a personal choice only we can make no one can make this decision for us. This is when we have to put our trust and faith into action and trust God to deliver us through into the places He has ordained for us to be. God is a faithful God and He never does anything by half measure. He wants each one of His children to have patience and learn how to wait for Him with undivided attention upon Him no matter what our circumstances may be.
We must want to live our lives being obedient and surrendered to Him not because we have to but because we want to. In my own personal experience since I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour and Lord the desires of my heart has been to be completely surrendered to God through Jesus Christ because He knows what is best for me.
