If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land.
It’s one thing to be obedient to what God says, that’s good. But if you really want to experience God’s best, you need to be more than obedient; you have to be willing. You have to do it with the right attitude—not out of obligation where you have to, but with an attitude of gratitude.
It’s one thing to give because you have to. It’s another thing to give because you want to. It’s one thing to go to work to pick up a paycheck. It’s another thing to go to work to be a blessing to somebody else. It’s one thing to stay married to your spouse because it’s the right thing to do. People may look down on you if you don’t. But it’s another thing to stay married to your spouse, to treat him or her with respect, to honor and help your partner reach a higher level. That’s being willing and obedient. When you do the right thing with the right motives, there’s no limit to what God will do in your life.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that Jesus was willing to come to earth as a man and then to be obedient to the point of death. Thank You for calling me to have the right spirit, to obey and serve with a grateful attitude. Help me to do what is right with the right motives. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
