The Cost of Disobedience!
The Lord calls us to obey Him wholeheartedly so that we honor Him and can enjoy His blessings!
Psalm 86:12 â€œI will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your Name forever.â€
1. The Lord has promised to be with us and meet all our needs, therefore, we are to trust and obey Him and not fear. (verses 21; 29-31)
John 6:37 â€œâ€¦whoever comes to me I will never drive away."
2. The commands of the Lord always lead to good outcomes (verse 25)
3. We can deceive ourselves into disobeying His commands (verses 26-29)
James 1:22 â€œDo not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says!"
*Their disobedience resulted in the loss of enjoying the Lordâ€™s promise. (verses 34-35)
