Daily Obedience

 

One of the things that can easily destroy us is that we don’t listen to the Holy Spirit’s leading. When your family starts to crash it takes you three months to repair the infection, whereas if you’d obeyed it would have saved you many months. I cannot tell you how important it is to daily obey Jesus.

Proverbs 3:1 & 2 My son, do not forget my teaching, But let your heart keep my commandments; For length of days and years of life, And peace they will add to you.

In this verse it is clearly stated, that if you will obey His commands years of life will be added to you. He’ll actually give you time.

Proverbs 4: 10 Hear, my son, and accept my sayings, And the years of your life will be many.

The Lord is saying, that if you’ll hear what He’s saying to you and you follow Him in obedience, He’ll add years to your life. Wow! Does that mean that you’ll live to be 120? No! What He is saying is that He’s going to give you more time in the same years that He has given you. He’s saying, “I’m going to add years to your life. I won’t expand your life; I’m just going to add years to it.” Isn’t that cool. He’ll add years to your life. He’ll help you to understand the importance of obedience.
