Obedience to God is unconditional; obedience to man is conditional. God expects us to obey Him in all things and at all times. The Bible tells us that obedience is better than sacrifice. What some people do not realize is that when we disobey God we are in rebellion and it is a spirit of witchcraft. This is a serious matter and should not be taken lightly. Our love for God should cause us to deny ourselves ,and when you deny yourself you’re denying your mind, your emotions, and your will to obey the inner spirit man in every area of life.
Obedience to God includes doing what God has told you to do even if it looks impossible. When God spoke to Noah and told him to build an ark, it took an enormous amount of faith for Noah to obey but if your heart is set on doing the will of God, God will give you the grace to perform. There is an anointing that comes upon you to avoid trying to logically make sense out of what God said, but rather focus on the task at hand. Your mind will play games with you and try to make you think that you didn’t really hear from God, but do not be deceived. Rely on the Holy Spirit to guide you in the path you should take.
An unconditional surrender to God is the mark of a mature Believer. Jesus Christ surrendered to the will of God even though it cost him his life. Believers must follow that example and take up their cross if they are to be a disciple of Jesus. You might have to let go of something, but anything that you give up will be given back to you in greater measure. Therefore, set your mind and heart to obey God. Your total submission to God will not go unnoticed but will be rewarded in this life and in the life to come.
