Obedience is the key to blessings and when we think of obedience, most of us imagine a world with very little freedom. We think of people being deprived of their basic rights and freedoms because God is asking them to be obedient. But that’s not what the Bible has in mind. In fact, as you read this article further, you will see how obedience is actually a wonderful blessing from God that brings about great benefits in our lives. When we are obedient, we become vessels for His blessings. Here are 7 ways to become more obedient and receive God’s blessings:
1. Know what it means to be obedient.
To be obedient is to be “responsive to authority; compliant, faithful.” In other words, God created us to be responsive to Him in such a way that we are faithful to Him and what He says. So, when we are obedient, we’re not just doing what we’re told. We’re responding to what God has said in the Bible — His instructions for how to live a good and fruitful life. Obedience to God is a life-long journey. It’s not something that you do once and then you’re done — it’s a way of life. When you’re obedient, you’re saying, “God, I’m trusting You to lead me and I’m going to follow Your direction in my life.”
2. Ask God to help you become more obedient.
If you feel like you’ve fallen away from being obedient, you can ask God to help you get back on track and become more obedient. Asking God to help you become more obedient is like having God Himself push you in the right direction. God wants to help you and He loves you so much. He knows that being more obedient in your life will bring you incredible blessings. He wants the best for you and so He will guide you in the right direction. You can pray and ask God to help you become more obedient. You can also ask God to help you become more obedient if you’ve been feeling that you’ve fallen into disobedience.
3. Focus on the things that are most important to God.
The best way to be obedient is to focus on the things that are most important to God. There are many things in life that we need to be obedient about — but there are some things that are must-dos. These are the things that are most important to God. These are the things that He has really emphasized in His Word, like loving Him with all of your heart, soul, and strength, and loving your neighbor as yourself. If you focus on these most important things in life and become obedient to them, you will be living a very obedient life. In fact, you will be doing exactly what God wants you to do.
4. Watch what you say and how you say it.
If you want to become more obedient and receive God’s blessings, you need to watch what you say and how you say it. You might think that this doesn’t have anything to do with obedience — but it does. When we are not obedient in the way that we talk to people, it shows that we are not actually obedient to God. This can cause you to miss out on God’s blessings in your life. You might also be causing others to miss out on God’s blessings in their lives by not being obedient in this area of your life. But there are ways to be obedient in this area. You can start by watching what you say. Don’t say things that are unkind or criticize others. Instead, say things that are positive and uplifting.
5. Be generous with your time and resources.
If you want to become more obedient to God and receive His blessings, you need to be generous with your time and resources. When you’re generous with your time and resources, you’re showing God that you trust Him and that you’re obedient to Him. When we’re not generous with our time and resources, we’re telling God that we don’t trust Him. We’re saying that we don’t need Him and that we don’t want to be obedient to Him. So, if you want to become more obedient and receive God’s blessings, you need to be generous with your time, talents, and resources.
6. Help others and be kind to people who need help.
To become more obedient and receive God’s blessings, you have to be kind and help others. People all around you are in need of help. You can help them by being kind to them and helping them when they need your assistance. You can also help others by donating your time and money to various charities in your area. There are many people around you who are in need of help and assistance — and you can help them. You can truly be obedient to God by being kind and helpful to others.
7. Don’t compare yourself to others.
If you want to become more obedient and receive God’s blessings, you need to stop comparing yourself to others — and you need to be careful about what you’re comparing yourself to. Instead of comparing yourself to others, you need to compare yourself to God’s Word. You want to be obedient to what God has said and you want to be obedient in the way you live your life. You don’t want to compare yourself to other people and what they’re doing. You want to be obedient to God and you want to live your life according to His instructions.
There are many benefits to being obedient to God. When you’re obedient, you’re responding to God’s Word and following His instructions for living a good life. You can ask God to help you become more obedient. You can also focus on the things that are most important to God and watch what you say and how you say it. You can also be generous with your time and resources, help others, and stop comparing yourself to others. When you do these things, you’ll be on the path to becoming more obedient and receiving God’s blessings in your life.
