Faith Snowballs

John 2:5 (NKJV)
Whatever He says to you, do it.

In her book Discerning the Voice of God, Priscilla Shirer says hearing from God all comes down to obedience.  There’s that word we love so much!  Obedience.

Yes, God desires an intimate relationship with us but within that relationship He wants our obedience.  He knows and is telling us what’s best for our life, but in order to experience our best we must obey.

How often do you ask for God’s opinion when you know ahead of time how you plan to proceed?  Do you ever disregard God’s guidance as illogical and talk yourself out of His plan?  Why would God continue to speak to you when you don’t obey?

It’s a snowball effect.  God knows your heart when you ask for guidance.  He knows if you plan to obey.  He starts small with baby faith steps.  When you take the action He directs, He reveals more and more, taking you on the most fulfilling ride of your life.  Come to Him with a pure heart.  Risk following His Voice.  Experience God.  It’s exciting!

Matthew 5:8 – Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
