Trust and obey,
For there's no other way,
to be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey!
Never a truer word
said, um, sung!
1 Sam 15v22: But Samuel replied, "What is more pleasing to the Lord: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to His voice? Obedience is far better than sacrifice. Listening to Him is much better than offering the fat or rams."
Prov 21 v 3: The Lord is more pleased when we do what is just and right than when we give Him sacrifice.
Do you exhaust every avenue before you trust the Lord enough to obey? I do! Stupid really, because when I finally take that step of faith into obedience, whatever it may be (doing something for someone, saying something to someone, giving something up, etc), it usually produces great blessing.
God is more concerned with us showing the the love of God, than pomp and ceremony. His first 2 commandments, love the Lord your God with all your heart and love your neighbour attest to this!
My encouragement to you is to choose to be obedient to God's call, you will never regret it!
