What is your role in God’s success plan in your life? Obey God’s instructions in His Word. God still calls us to obedience which is one area in which the enemy deceives. Why? The enemy knows that if he can keep you in sin – deceive you into thinking it’s ok to sin like he did Eve and Adam – you will die. The wages of sin is death. Sin is rebellion against God. Sin separates us from God. Some of us want the promises of God but we don’t want to follow the principles of God. To be successful by God’s standards we can’t live in disobedience, sin, and rebellion.
Be honest. How many of us are asking God for blessings – really we’re mad with God because He’s blessing everyone but us – but we aren’t walking in obedience? It’s simple things too that the enemy is using to get us caught up. Husbands what instructions have God given you about your role? Do you know? Wives? Children? Leaders? Ministers? Do you want success according to God’s standards because it is the only lasting success? Don’t stray off the path of obedience. Stay on the narrow road. Look straight ahead toward Jesus – not at the world on your left and the world on your right. Be careful to obey His Word. Jesus says it this way in John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commandments.” Jené Elaine Walker
