Dark · Light · Obedience · the Word · Trust

sometimes… obedience feels… like walking in the dark…

Sometimes… trusting obedience… feels like walking in the dark…

Yesterday’s thoughts on His Word is light
and thinking about Ezekiel…
all the strange things God asked Him to do…
to try and reach the hearts of His people…

Made me think of those who trust and obey… when it doesn’t really seem to make sense to them…

Abram… Abraham… the father of the faithful…
left his homeland… for he knew not where…
because he trusted and obeyed God…

By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go
out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance.
And he went out, not knowing where he was going.
Hebrews 11:8 ESV
Sometimes… obeying His Word… 
feels like walking in the dark…
The key… trusting He is Light…
He knows the end from the beginning…
nothing hidden from His sight…
nothing is darkness to Him…
Obedience to His Word…
even when we cannot see…
brings encouragement to others…
bringing them light…
I’ve experienced it myself…
during a worship service…
anticipating a hard call…
the worship leader explained to the congregation…
the inclusion of a song… they wouldn’t usually do…
but a member of the team insisted God had placed it on their heart…
and someone needed to hear it…
It was me…
Thankful for those who trust His Word… as light…
even when it feels like… dark…
Thank You… Lord… for those who are obedient without question…
without knowing why… but trusting You…
Bless me with the faith… to obey… 
when it doesn’t make sense to me…
