Obedience is in the Action, Not the Outcome
There have been times in my life when I acted on God’s nudges and followed Him, not realizing I would be entering a desert season. In my despair and confusion, I wondered why my obedience had such a painful outcome. If I’m following God, then shouldn’t the obedience be rewarded with a happy ending? Lovingly, God allowed me to see my attitude of entitlement. He taught me that obedience is in the action, not the outcome. He wants me to follow His leading and trust Him alone for the results, not my performance.
“You shall be complete in your obedience and devotion to Him.” (Deuteronomy 18:13, The Voice)
