Trust and Obey

A popular hymn in the Christian tradition is Trust and Obey. The hymn mainly reminds us of the need to listen to God’s voice in our lives, to trust him as our Lord and Savior and to follow what he tells us to do. In the present world, we have come to advance our scientific and technological knowledge and innovations which is good and helps us be in good health and live a long and happy life. But at times we also forget about the presence and power of God when all seems to be certain for us. When the weather predictions inform us of the high possibility of rain, we tend to look for scientific justification and explanations to the occurrence of the rain and sometimes we fail to appreciate that it’s God’s blessing to humanity.  In as much as God has given us the knowledge to predict events and understand the world in which we live with a sense of accuracy, we are called to remind ourselves of the fact that God is in control of the world, and he extends his love unto all. We need not to be boastful of what we have, our achievements or finances, but rather we need to be thankful to God for giving us the privilege to be part of his family, a family where we experience unlimited grace and blessings.

As we sing the song, we are called to be listeners and obedient to God’s command. How many times do we offer our ears unto God and allow him to speak to us. In most cases our prayers are filled with requests to God, asking him to be manifest in our life and circumstances. But today, God wants you to listen to his voice, he wants you to hear what he is about to tell you and to obey his command and message. There is no other way to be happy in Jesus than to trust and obey and as such let us be ready to follow his ways and trust that he is with us wherever we go and even during difficult times. Our trust inn him should extend beyond the normal experiences of life those we believe are impossible, for he is a miracle performing God and he wants to you to trust him and you will be a witness of his good work.

As we go through our daily activities, let us remember the God of our fathers who divided the red sea into two so as to allow the children of Israel to cross on their way to the promised land, is still with us today. He is wants to talk to us and wants you to listen to his voice and obey his word, so you will experience new things in your life.
