Taking Delight In Obedience

by | Jun 11, 2010 | Bible Study

(Part 1)

The Lord is always looking for willing vessels of His love. Simply start reaching out to others, and you will begin to experience greater intimacy in Your worship and a more meaningful relationship with Him.


READ: 2 Sam. 24:24; Ps. 73:25-26; Ps. 84:4; Prov. 3:1-8; Prov. 31:30; John 4:23-24.
HEART ISSUE: This week, sing your praises to God as you are led by the Spirit or quietly bask in His presence.
PRAYER FOCUS: Father God, in the name of Jesus, thank You for bringing me into Your presence. Thank You for the fresh revelations You give to me daily and for blessing me to be a blessing to others. Amen.

(Part 2)

Many people outside the church think of the Christian life with God as binding and oppressive, but the awesome greatness and love of our Father invites us to live in total freedom. Attempting to walk in obedience strictly because of a sense of duty will not take you far. Always serve God and follow Him because you love Him and understand how much He loves you.

READ: Deut. 32:3-4; Neh. 9:6; Ps. 119:32; Ps. 119:57-64; Phil. 2:12-16; 1 John 5:3-5.
HEART ISSUE: If you are discontented with your life, concentrate on God’s blessings to you. Give yourself to the work of the Lord right where you are, and be faithful.
PRAYER FOCUS: Dear Father, I thank you that I can see Your hand at work in and through my life. Right where I am at this moment, allow me to be the great blessing to others that You intend, for Your glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
