If they obey and serve Him, they shall spend their days in prosperity and their years in pleasantness and joy.”
Job 36:11 AMPC
The question is how do we serve God? We serve God by practicing the word for the Spirit and the word agrees.
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”
1 John 5:7 KJV
Anytime we practice the Word we are following the Spirit or being led by the Spirit. That is why we must desire relationship with our Lord by studying our word, prayer and fasting. With this in mind, obeying and serving God becomes easy. This is how we serve God with our spirit. And by so doing presenting our body as a living sacrifice unto Him.
For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;”
Romans 1:9 KJV
Thus, we all will reap the covenant blessings which only comes through obedience and service.
And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil. I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee.”
Exodus 23:25-27 KJV
Obedience is better than sacrifice!!!
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word. I arrest the spirit of rebellion and loose obedience in Jesus name. As an obedient child I declare the covenant blessings that comes through obedience and service is my portion in Jesus name. Amen
