Have you heard of the song trust and obey, for there’s no other way, to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey? I’ve been asking God through my prayers and claiming verses from the Bible all his promises. A good life, wealth, peace, love, provision and a good future are some of the things that I want to have. God has provided bits and pieces and some are beyond my expectations. I have realized that it is a journey in a christian faith to walk in obedience and trust. God wants us to trust and obey to ENCOUNTER and REALIZE Grace. Akala ko ang grace is just something that we do not deserve and He still gives it to us. Yes it is true that Grace is an unmerited favor from the LORD but there is something more in that. My christian life was a roller coaster for the past 27 years. My life was pretty much good, no big problems, earning a decent income, I attended church weekly, I also sin weekly, I dishonor my parents, I rebel against GOD and I repent to GOD. Life was okay but I know that I’m still missing something and I realized that my walk with GOD is no fun or in short I wasn’t happy. I cannot define the difference between joy and happiness because I for myself have not experience long lasting JOY. It is just when I decided to surrender everything to GOD and let HIM take over in all areas of my life. I did that by trusting in HIM and not on myself or to any man on earth. I TRUSTED God through my relationship with my parents by accepting for who they are to me. I TRUSTED Him through my finances by tithing and surrendering my business to HIM. Whether I have good or bad sales during the day, I’m thankful because I know that He wants to change my heart and depend on HIM and not on myself and lastly, I trusted the WORD of God. As Jesus said,
20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
Even though our heart doesn’t have the desire to fully obey HIM because of the doubts that we have. Take that mustard seed of faith in an area of our life and let GOD do the moving of the mountains then that is THE TIME we will ALL REALIZED and ENCOUNTER the word “GRACE”.
