Obedience – Part 4

We live in such a way that no one will stumble because of us, and no one will find fault with our ministry.

In everything we do, we show that we are true ministers of God.  We patiently endure troubles and hardships and calamities of every kind.

2 Corinthians 6:3-4

Fourth Test:

Do you ever give reasons why you cannot do a job?

Obedience is finding ways to overcome obstacles. (No negative thinking, no failure to be creative, no “I can’t”)

When told to do a job, it is normal to think of obstacles that are in your way, but do not voice them.  Ask yourself, “How can I overcome these obstacles?”  Ask God for wisdom.  A desire to obey motivates creativity.  Where there is a will, there is a way.

In the Christian walk, there will be many obstacles to overcome in order to obediently walk in God’s ways. All of these obstacles stretch our faith.  They encourage our faithfulness, persistence, endurance and creativity.

So, instead of saying, “I can’t”, let’s start saying, “I can, and will be obedient – in spite of the obstacles!”
