Follow and Obey!

Follow and Obey!



Even in the night I think about you, LORD, and I obey your Law. You have blessed me because I have always followed your teachings, You, LORD, are my choice, and I will obey you.---------Psalm 119:55-57


The Psalmist, here, is expressing his FAITHFULNESS to the Lord, through his obedience in following the teachings of Almighty God.  He says that “Even in the night I think about you, Lord.”  His heart is so attuned to the LORD that he CONTINUALLY thinks about the LORD and his OBEDIENCE to His LAW.


FOLLOWING and OBEDIENCE usually go hand in hand.  In most cases if one FOLLOWS a person they will be OBEDIENT to them or they will FALL AWAY, and CEASE to FOLLOW and not be OBEDIENT to the one they were FOLLOWING.  IF you choose to be OBEDIENT to the LORD then you will be FOLLOWING HIM, because you are OBEDIENT to His teachings or law and that makes you a FOLLOWER OF HIM.


If one chooses to FOLLOW the ways of this WORLD, then they will be OBEDIENT to WORLD WAYS, and WORLDLY WAYS AND GODLY WAYS do NOT mix.  You WILL have to choose to whom you will FOLLOW and be OBEDIENT to.  If you choose to FOLLOW and be OBEDIENT to the WORLDLY WAYS then you will receive the JUDGMENT from God, for those that are WORLDLY MINDED.  If you choose to FOLLOW and be OBEDIENT to the LORD and His teachings, you will receive a GREAT REWARD, an ETERNITY with Him and ALL THE BLESSINGS of HEAVEN.


So it’s up to YOU, CHOOSE THIS DAY, who you will FOLLOW and OBEY!   You can have an ETERNITY in HEAVEN with the LORD by:  CONFESSING your sins to God and asking for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION.  Do it NOW, while you STILL can.  He’s waiting!!!
