'Faithfully Obey"

 

“Faithfully Obey”

 

Teach me, LORD, what you want me to do, and I will obey you faithfully; teach me to serve you with complete devotion.      Psalm 86:11

 

This was a prayer offered to God, from David, for God’s protection, and to keep him from DEATH. David acknowledged God’s GREATNESS, His CONSTANT LOVE and FORGIVING HEART.  He also acknowledged that there is NO OTHER god like JEHOVAH GOD, who has done what ONLY He can do.  He is MIGHTY and MERCIFUL, and HE ALONE is GOD.  He cares about His Children, and will ALWAYS BE FAITHFUL to those who FAITHFULLY OBEY His commands.

 

This part of David’s prayer is one, which EVERY TRUE BELIEVER, should be WILLING to pray, from a WILLING CONTRITE HEART.  “Teach me, LORD, what you want me to do, and I will OBEY YOU FAITHFULLY;” We so often, try to tell God what WE WANT to do, or we just COMPLETELY leave Him OUT of the entire scenario.  When we should SEEK His GUIDANCE, and FOLLOW HIM, and FAITHFULLY OBEY His Instructions.   We then could save ourselves a lot of HEARTACHES and DISAPPOINTMENTS. 

 

The next phrase is a little like the first; “teach me to serve you with complete devotion.”  We need to realize that we are HIS SERVANTS, and we need to KNOW what PLEASES HIM, so that we might SERVE HIM with COMPLETE DEVOTION, which means WHOLE-HEARTEDLY and NOT HALF-HEARTEDLY.  But with ALL we are, have, or EVER HOPE to be.  After ALL He has done for us, it is the LEAST we can do for HIM.  So, the question for the TRUE BELIEVER is: “Are you FAITHFULLY OBEYING the LORD GOD, and DAILY SEEKING His GUIDANCE?  Are you STRIVING to PLEASE Him, in your SERVICE to Him?  If NOT, you NEED to make it RIGHT, by FAITHFULLY OBEYING His Word and SEEKING HIS Will.

 

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are being DISOBEDIENT and NOT OBEDIENT to Him and His commands.  And you are DOOMED to spend ALL ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY to ESCAPE.  In order to CHANGE your DESTINY, you MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  You MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and FAITHFULLY OBEY Him and His Word.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

Mood: hopeful
