Great moves of God are often preceded by simple acts of obedience.
21 Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”
1. Obedience to the Word of God.
2 Do not be conformed to this world,[a] but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.[b]
Obedience to God cannot be based on what I feel, which changes. It has to be based on who He is, which does not.
2. Obedience to His Calling.
21 Many are the plans in the mind of a man,
but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.
Obedience often times will call you out of your comfort zone.
3. Obedience to the Holy Spirit.
15 “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper,[a] to be with you forever, 17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be[b] in you.
