Anyone who wants to know God—to walk closely with Him—must obey Him. There is no way that we can come into a close relationship with the Lord, walk fully in THE BLESSING, and enjoy the communion that our spirits desire without obeying Him.
Compromise is everywhere. From elections to boardrooms, from marriage vows to financial schemes, worldly compromise is truly all around us. That’s why it’s so important for God’s people to take a stand against unholy compromise in to their lives.
Learning to accurately distinguish the leading of the Holy Spirit is perhaps the greatest challenge we can face. Abiding in the Lord and maintaining a living connection with Him begins with hearing and obeying Him. God told Israel to obey His written Word and His voice.
Make what God says the authority in your life. You shouldn’t just believe what God says to you in His Word, but you should also act on it. Acting on it is what produces results.
