Because He Said So!

I heard a pastor give a riveting sermon this morning that's like fire within. It's an on-time message for those without direction and in desperate circumstances. God's message was a resounding prescription on the importance and benefits of listening and obeying Him this morning through several teachings.

Can you remember your parent(s) telling you, "Because I said so! I can. I never really liked it, but what if that was a set up (as I learned today) to follow Our Heavenly Father without debriefing or answers to our whys. That's a heavy revy!

"Whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm." Proverbs 1:33

Read and meditate on Proverbs 1:20-33 Warning Against Rejecting Wisdom

Life Application Study Bible: Many Proverbs point out that the "fruit of their own way" will be the consequences people will experience in this life. Faced with either choosing God's wisdom or persisting in rebellious independence many decide to go it alone. The problems such people create for themselves will destroy them. Don't ignore God's advice even if its painful for the present. It will keep you from grater pain in the future.
