When all else fails

I Samuel 15:22 ESV

And Samuel said, "Has the LORD great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD?  Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of rams.  

So often we want to try everything and every way imaginable to resolve an issue.  We run around in circles and run around with people trying to heal some broken part of us that only JESUS can touch. 

The LORD has been speaking to some of you about certain things in your life.  From lifestyle changes and the way you're choosing to live to the people you're running with.  HE has made it clear that HE is not happy with your behavior outside of the four walls of the church building.  Others of you HE is requiring more from you.  Requesting you to step into the role in ministry that you know HE has been calling you to. 

Yet, in both situations excuses are made.  You comfort yourself with the things you do "right". Or the verses of the bible that you often use to make yourself feel good when you know that you are not doing all that GOD has called you to do. 

Well, I am here to tell you that your excuses will not work.  I know you know this for yourself, because everything you've tried has fallen short and that void in your life still remains. 

Why don't you decide today that you'll stop all the things that fail you and choose to be obedient to the only GOD that can never fail!  I promise you the "sacrifice" you feel you are making to follow HIM will be far outweighed by the blessings HE bestows upon us for being obedient.  It's not about the things HE gives, but the reason behind HIM giving them.  I pray you will lay hold to all HE has for you through obedience today!

In HIS Love and by HIS direction!
