Obey God in Faith

Dear Friends,
It takes faith to obey God—at all times and in all circumstances. In the workplace it is even more difficult because of our desire to fit in versus staying away from situations that may hurt us in the future. Today’s devotional reminds us to obey God in faith and we will experience His blessings. Enjoy!

Obey God in Faith

John 15:14 (NLT)
You are my friends if you obey me.

Luke 11:28 (NLT)

“But even more blessed are all who hear the word of God and put it into practice.”

Jesus went to the cross by faith, knowing it was the only way humanity would be saved. This is the ultimate sacrifice and example of obedience by faith that Jesus as a human did.

Many times God asks us to do things that don’t make sense in our minds. Other times we simply don’t want to do them. It is in those instances we must obey in faith, knowing God always wants the best for us and He orders our steps.

In the workplace, you will have many opportunities to obey or disobey God. For example: if you see a group of employees telling dirty jokes or gossiping, your flesh may want to participate just to fit in, but your spirit will be telling you, “No, stay where you are.” Obey God by keeping your heart pure and not hearing corrupt communications. Remember, it is easier to disobey. But even when it is difficult to obey God’s direction in your life, it is worth it and you will be blessed.
