Winsome Wednesday - Results of Obedience!

In a past post (Has God given you a word?) I spoke of how we made a decision to sell a home we had years ago based on a scripture we felt God had given us:  Prov 15v16:  Better is a little with the fear of the Lord, than great treasure with trouble.



Let me share with you some of the results of being obedient in that situation:

  • We moved down the road and financially things were much better
  • Because we felt we had been obedient to Christ, we grew spiritually and sought more to live in obedience
  • More profound, the people who bought our home ultimately gave their lives to the Lord
When we heard that we knew our house had been built with a purpose in mind, their salvation.  What an amazing thing to be part of.  I believe the bible in the foundation played a part too, just saying... :)

Rom 8v28:  And we know all things work together for the good of those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

My encouragement to you is even though you can't see a purpose in what you believe God is leading you in, KNOW the He has a purpose in it!

God bless
Tracy

    We can receive wonderful results when we chose to be obedient to His calling! Not always easy; and I for one can be stubborn, but He always wins! :)

  7. Often we don't understand why we face certain situations, but God works in mysterious ways. When we let go and allow God to work....there is no end to the possibilities.

    That is such an encouraging truth. We can always know that God has a purpose - and He works everything in His purpose for those who love Him. So amazing!
