“For this is the order I received through the word of Adonai: Don’t eat food or drink water, and don’t return by the road you took when you came.”
1 Kings 13:9 CJB
Listening to the LORD is always going to be better for us. Things don’t work out so good for this man of God because of disobedience. He ends up getting eaten by a lion!
“Sh’mu’el said, Does Adonai take as much pleasure in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying what Adonai says? Surely obeying is better than sacrifice, and heeding orders than the fat of rams.”
1 Samuel 15:22 CJB
Life is full of all kinds of obstacles and problems, which all can be better navigated by following the LORD! Remember, this is a man of God who is eaten by a lion! Even believers need to be mindful of doing what God says, not man!
“If you love me, you will keep My commands.”
John 14:15 CJB
Today, let’s listen and follow the LORD and do life His way!
Have a blessed day!
