If you are finding it difficult to obey God’s Word, that’s a clear indication that your heart has drifted away from Him. Jesus said, “If you love me, obey my commands.” (John 14:15). Complete obedience stems out of our love for God. If we have an obedience problem, it’s because we have a love problem.
- Do I truly love God with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul?
- Do I consistently obey God when He speaks?
- Is there something God has asked me to do that I haven’t done yet?
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. (Psalm 139:23-24)
