Belief and Obey – A Devotional by Charles Stanley

Trusting the Lord makes obedience simpler, and obedience produces ever-increasing belief.

Certainly one of my favourite songs is “Belief and Obey” as a result of it sums up God’s goal for our lives. After we follow these two instructions, a stupendous cycle begins. Trusting the Lord makes obedience simpler, and obedience produces ever-increasing belief. Are you able to recall dealing with a problem that was tough or perplexing? If that’s the case, you know the way necessary these two instructions are.

When the Lord calls you to a process that appears unreasonable, you’ve got two choices. You may obey Him though you don’t perceive what is going to occur, or you may develop into fearful and try and discover a method out. Joshua selected the primary choice. As a result of he trusted the Lord, he disregarded all his navy expertise and adopted God’s weird battle plan. Through the years, he had discovered that the Lord is reliable.

The way in which we reply to God’s difficult assignments reveals our degree of dedication. We might really feel as if we’re proper consistent with Him–till He proposes a change of route. That’s when our resistance kicks in, and with it, the conclusion we aren’t as near Him as we thought. At that time, our determination determines whether or not the Lord will be capable to use us as He needs. As a result of Joshua by no means misplaced his dedication, he continued to serve the Lord for the rest of his life.

At occasions obedience is a wrestle, as your thoughts runs via all the explanations God’s path is illogical. Worry dominates and your will battles to conform when every thing inside is screaming to run the opposite method. However obedience is at all times the only option, as a result of the Lord is reliable and smart.

Now Jericho was securely shut up due to the kids of Israel; none went out, and none got here in. And the Lord mentioned to Joshua: “See! I’ve given Jericho into your hand, its king, and the mighty males of valour. You shall march across the metropolis, all you males of warfare; you shall go throughout the town as soon as. This you shall do six days. And 7 monks shall bear seven trumpets of rams’ horns earlier than the ark. However the seventh day you shall march across the metropolis seven occasions, and the monks shall blow the trumpets. It shall come to go, once they make a protracted blast with the ram’s horn, and while you hear the sound of the trumpet, that each one the folks shall shout with a fantastic shout; then the wall of the town will fall down flat. And the folks shall go up each man straight earlier than him.” Joshua 6:1-5
