It says in Isaiah 1:19, “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.”
Way too many times we might be obedient in what we are doing but not willing in our heart. There has been time in my past where I was obedient to do something but not willing in my heart. If you are not both then you will not eat the good of the land. In other words you might not receive any type of blessing from God if you are not willing.
Obedience deals with your actions; willingness deals with your attitude. John Bevere
You have to realize how important your heart attitude is.
Wait Brad, what if my boss, my pastor, my leader over me is mean and does not ask me in a nice way? Do it, be willing and obedient.
Wait, what if they hurt my feelings and did not ask me nicely? Do it be willing and obedient.
But they offended me and still want me to do something for them? Do it, be willing and obedient.
