BEING WILLING AND OBEDIENT

 
*Audio Version*: http://bit.ly/293Wa2h

Isaiaha 1:19 'If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land' [KJV]

If a child is playing with his friends and then his parents send him on an errand, he will have to obey the call because they are his parents, but many times not with a willing heart. It is not enough just to obey God and follow His commands, but it is also important to have a willing heart while obeying.

Most believers obey the word of God simply because they do not want to go to hell. They are actually not willing in their obedience. That's why they can't get all the blessings and benefits that a believer should have.

David admonished Solomon to serve the Lord with a willing heart, for the Lord searches all hearts and imaginations of the thoughts. (See 1 Chron 28:9).

If you are a pastor called by God, you will not eat the good of the land if you are not willing in your obedience to the call. It is sad that some missionaries aren't willing to go to the places God is sending them to; they are only obedient because they have to. You can only eat the good of the land when you are both willing in heart and obedient.

Even as God gives us instructions from His word daily, we must be willing in heart as we obey. Only then can we eat the good of the land and be full partakers of the blessings that accompany the word.

Are you willing in heart in your service to Him? Search your heart. Unwillingness in obeying God comes from a heart that has been corrupted by the standards and deceitfulness of this world. Allowing the word wash your heart and change your desires and standards is the solution to this malady.

As you go into today, ask the Lord to give you a willing heart to obey Him in all things.
