Faithful Fridays~Obedience

Faithful Fridays is a day where christians can share there faith, a song, a bible verse, a bible study that you are working through or anything that God has put on your heart to share. You can go to Joy's blog Doodle Bug to get the rules and picture.

Last night at youth, the youth pastor was talking about how to obey God.

You have commanded your precepts
    to be kept diligently.

Psalm 119:4

The word precept means rule - instruction - regulation - law - lesson and the word diligently means constantly. So the verse means God has commanded His rules and we are to keep them all the time. We are also suppose to obey Him....
  • Not Partially, But Fully
Which means choosing some rules to obey and not others. But we are to obey everything God says and not choose what we want to obey. Because God didn't say that we could just choose, He said obey everything I say.
  • Not Doubtfully, But Confidently
Which means being not sure if you should do what God says. It is like when you are going to go swimming and you put your toes in water to see if it is cold. And if it is you are not sure if you should go in or not. But you have to trust God that He knows what is best for you and go all in.
  • Not Reluctantly, But Readily
Which means being like I really don't want to do it, well not right now. But being just so excited to do it and jump up and do it right away.

  • Not Carelessly, But Carefully
It is when you are not sure if something is right or wrong so you don't know what to do. The best thing to do is just not do it and be safe than do it and disobey God.
  • Not Coldly, But Earnestly
You can't obey grumpily and not willing to do it but you have to obey happy and with a pure heart.
  • Not Sporadically, But Regularly
You can't obey now and then. You have to obey God 24/7. You have to obey God of whatever He says to do, when He says it, however He says it has to be done.

I know that no one can obey God like this but we have to strive to obey God everyday just like the things above.

  1. Great post, Rebekah! :) We have to trust God and know by His word that He's going to be right there with us--just keep following Him and obeying Him and holding onto His promises.
