Good morning.


Dr. Charles Stanley writing on obedience has this to say.


Learning to swim begins with a simple lesson— putting your face in the water. That first little step helps you get comfortable in the water and is critical for all swimming skills. In the same way, following God begins with a small act of obedience. It may seem insignificant or unrelated to the task at hand, but that’s where God wants us to start.


Luke records an interesting account in chapter 5:1-7. When Jesus asked to borrow a fishing boat, it must have seemed like just an ordinary request. Peter had no idea it would open the door to ministry and a remarkable adventure with the Lord. Saying yes to God in the small things is essential to discovering His purpose for us, and what’s more, our obedience will also often cause others to benefit. Peter’s compliance with Jesus’ next small request—to let down his nets one more time—resulted in two boatloads of fish, which was more than enough for all those with him.


Obedience to God may appear unreasonable at times. But obeying the Lord can lead to divinely ordained opportunities and blessings for us and others.


"To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams."

(1 Samuel 15:22)


Have a good day.


Blessings.
