Sometimes we do more to impress God or we do less because we don’t think we can do it. God doesn’t look at our abilities to work through us, He looks at our obedient and surrendered hearts. If you have dealt with abuse in the past, the word “obedience” can feel like a controlling and dominating word. When we talk about it, we are talking about trusting God and allowing that trust to do His will on this earth. Humans are just really terrible about trusting and obeying. We try to do things our own way and negotiate with God, then we have to go back to Him and do it the way He needed us to do it. He is merciful as we continue to learn to trust Him, but the death and resurrection of Jesus empowered us to trust and obey in a better way– and right away.
