Partial Obedience is Disobedience
This was a good daily devotion from Rick Warren that I just read. It was a continued teaching from the Lord that flows well with the posting from yesterday, Moment of Choice. Here’s a quick snip from it –
God smiles when we obey him wholeheartedly. That means doing whatever God asks without reservation or hesitation. You don’t procrastinate and say, “I’ll pray about it.” You do it without delay. Every parent knows that delayed obedience is really disobedience.
Here is the devotion from Rick Warren, I pray it blesses you, in Jesus name, amen.
Blessings and Responsibilities of Believers
These blessings and responsibilities for believers were taken out of my bible study. It is based on the writings of Paul to the church in Ephesus. Enjoy the scripture. I pray it blesses you, in Jesus name. Amen –
Blind Step of Faith
During my journey with the Lord, I have witnessed believers guide me and other members of the Body to take a blind step of faith in situations where God’s will is unknown. This is what I call a blind faith. I would like to give my own guidance on this topic because I see a great error in the use of the statement “Step of Faith.” Please, I covet additional insight on this topic as well (Updated: The Lord has taught me more on this topic. Please see the new post, Walking in Faith) –

Afraid of the Unknown
The Lord God revealed to me that I am afraid of the unknown in-Christ. God, help me in my unbelief. I have had a few dreams that I didn’t understand, but now when I look at them globally, it seems that I am afraid of the path less traveled, the unknown, death to self, complete surrender, etc. If you have wisdom in interpreting dreams, I really could use some help from the Body (especially prayers). I’ll explain each one and what my understanding is. If the Spirit guides you to a different understanding, please, by all means, please jump in or shoot me an email from the contact me form. Lord, help me by sending me an angel.

Keep It Simple Servant
Keep It Simple Servant – Boy, do I over complicate things. Faith and obedience, it’s really that simple, servant!
Obedience as a servant takes action – Moses, strike the Nile with your rod. Raise your rod Moses. Strike the rock with your rod Moses. March around Jericho 7 times and shout. Lepers, go show the priest you are healed. Pick up your mat and walk. Keep it simple servant – Have faith and choose God (servant), hear His word, then take an action in obedience. Simple enough, right? It only gets complicated after my ideas start to get involved. I end up trying to figure things out myself (Proverbs 3:5-8). When I do this, I have walked right into the war zone, Spirit vs Flesh. Keep it Simple Servant –
What are you and God working out?
I always say something like this to friends while I keep involving myself in a struggle with God: “Ya, I’m struggling with this, but God is working with me on it. We are working it out.”
The other day, this all changed. A Pastor said: “What exactly is it that you’re working out with God? He has already worked it out.” After dwelling on this, something serious was revealed –
