Why it would be better off obeying the Lord instead of disobeying him? Why do we follow his ways rather than ours? Why is it very important that you must obey the Lord no matter what?
I believe the answer to all of these questions lies in the outcome of our action. We need to obey the Lord since our final glory is installed in it. You are going to see what God has prepared for you from the beginning of time. These wonders and miracles are just in their place waiting for you just to get revealed. Without obedience, your will fall short of God’s glory.
And you will never see them unless you come back. Repentance is the key for coming back. No matter how many times you fall, Jesus is waiting for you. He is there always thinking about you. Will you come back from your own ways and see him and meet him?
He is your beloved and you are his. How one can think life without him? You know deep in your heart you can’t make it without him. All you have to do is to fall in his hands. He will take it from there. You don’t have to worry about anything. Just give him the chance.
Why the almighty cares about you? The reason is God fall in Love with you before you were even born. He put his grace on you. In fact he paid a big price to make you his own and himself yours. And now you are so loved that he can’t take his eyes of you. When he sees you, he sees you pure and innocent. There is no condemnation in God’s Love.
All he thinks is all about you. He calls you with sweet names he gave you. He protected you like the apple of his eyes. He carved your name on his hand so that you can be sure that he will never forget you. He put his Angels around you. He put a mark on you that anyone who sees you knows you are his love. Even if many envy your Love, they can’t do anything. As he is the beginning and the end of all things. And no one can take you from his hands.
You will be so amazed if you know all he has done for you. But words and time will not reveal it all at the same time. But everything will be revealed to you in its own beautiful time as he himself is not bound with words and time. But in all of these you hesitate his love and tend to believe one simple lie of the devil. As one small stone in front of your eyes hides the big mountain, you couldn’t realize what he has done for you and how he has loved you from the beginning.
He loved you with incomparable Love. He trusted on himself when he does all of that for you. He realized his amazing power that could be revealed in you. But all of these amazing glory and power will never come without the act of obedience from you.
All of our earthly and heavenly benefits are tied to our level of obedience to the word of God.
What does it take to say no to sin and please only God in all of the circumstances. A sin that you already know it is rubbish. Unless you really want to hurt his feelings. Unless you want to be an ache in his heart. Loosing you for him is like losing everything.
When the Lord comes to look for you he thinks for himself everything in his kingdom has no value unless you are found and being saved. He loved you that much. That he even can’t be happy in all of his invincibility. Why you ask? Because he has shade his blood and wounded just for you. His blood is just a witness that how much he loves you and it is always fresh in his own eyes to remind him that he loves you to death just to keep you with him always. Just to tell all his enemies that you are one of the most innocent, beautiful and loving creature in the universe. Just to make you be one like that, he lost everything. Now what does it take to say back ‘thank you’. And tell that fox,
I Love him with all of my body, my spirit and my soul. Earth has nothing I desire. Whom I have in heaven but him? My strength and my heart may fail me one day. But GOD is the portion of my soul forever!
Rebelling against the love of God is accumulating curse for us and for the generation to come. On the other hand obeying him will grant us total victory above all of our enemies and that pleases God the most.
Here are some scriptures from the word of God in light of the above teachings..
Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?And when he finds it, he joyfully put it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Can a woman forget her nursing child And have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, but I will not forget you. "Behold, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands;

"If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love. 11"These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.
Deuteronomy 30:10 The Lord will again delight in you and make you prosperous, just as he delighted in your ancestors, 10if you obey the Lord your God and keep his commands and decrees that are written in this Book of the Law and turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
