The Benefits of obedience – Part 2
Job 36:11 – If they obey and serve Him, They shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.
Obedience to God obligates Him to bless you at every point in your life. Friend, there are no small acts of obedience. Every act done in compliance with divine instruction adds to the building block of the prosperous life that God has planned for you. Obedience is like an investment with sure dividend. So keep at it because you don’t know which specific act will tip the barrel of divine blessing over you.
Divine ascendency and victory over the opposition
Victory over opposition comes cheaply when we walk in obedience. When we walk in obedience we are automatically on God’s side and He is on our side and whoever stands against us stands against God. So God fights for you against the opposition. Furthermore, He turns their heart in your favour, such that the person that initially hates you begins to take interest in your wellbeing.
The bible indicates that a wicked person or a disobedient person would die in the midst of his days. On other side, obedience sets you up for longevity. God wants you to live long but do you? If your answer is yes start being obedient to His word day by day, month by month, and year by year and then you will live long and strong.
