Recognizing Rebellion



Today's Scripture

"As obedient children, let yourselves be pulled into a way of life shaped by God's life, a life energetic and blazing with holiness. God said, 'I am holy; you be holy.'" 1 Peter 1:15-16 MSG

Thoughts for Today

Tammy's testimony continues: "One big lesson I've learned is that the Word of God is clear about obedience and how it relates to the Christian walk. Obedience is not optional. In a world that claims no authoritative truth, we must resolve to accept the Word of God as authority in our lives.

"For a long time, my attitude kept me from obeying God. 'I deserve a loving relationship,' I rationalized. 'If this is not permissible, then why do I feel gay? I never asked to be attracted to others of the same sex.' I felt as though the God who was seemingly absent in my childhood was now demanding more than I could give. My anger fueled my disobedience and, in my mind, justified my rebellion.

"As I opened my heart to God, I recognized my rebellion for what it was. God's call for obedience ceases to be a list of unattainable rules when we realize it is the request of a loving heavenly father inviting us to trust him. He has a plan for my life that exceeds my own, and I can trust him because his love has no limits."

Consider this...

Is there an area of rebellion in your life? Ask God to help you trust him with every part of your life. Choose to do things his way and begin to live "a life energetic and blazing with holiness."

As you study the Bible and pray, discover as Tammy did that God's ways really are the best ways. That he is your loving heavenly Father and is inviting you to trust him. Just as he had a plan for Tammy's life, he has one for yours. You can trust him because his love has no limits.

Prayer: Our Merciful Loving Father in Heaven, please forgive me for my disobedience. I want to trust you with every area of my life. To do things your way. I want to obey you and accomplish the purpose you have for me. Help me to walk on obedience to live a life energetic and blazing with holiness. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.
