Sacrifice vs. Obedience

I am so excited to introduce everyone to the new design for HISBlessedOne. As I am growing more and more in my ministry GOD is peeling back the layers of fluff and calling me to be more BOLD in my spiritual walk with HIM.

The new design is called "BLESSED" and I am absolutely in love with it. When GOD gave me the vision of this ministry HE gave me Deuteronomy 28:1-14 as the scripture and every day when I get out of my bed it is my prayer to be obedient. Not to receive the blessings but because I LOVE GOD!

Last week GOD revealed to me that in some areas of my life that I was making a sacrifice to HIM but not really being obedient. Two years ago I made a decision to become celibate and I can be honest when I decided to go on this journey it was not because I was really trying to please GOD and I defiantly didn't think it would go this long. I made the decision because I was having sex with a guy for two years on and off and not one time did he make a commitment to me. I woke up one morning making a choice to love me more than I cared about him. I promised myself that I would not have sex until I was in a committed relationship. LOL.....but GOD had better plans for me and now I am committed to be being celibate until GOD sends me a husband. What GOD did show me is that two years later I was still holding on to this relationship. I never thought of me trying to hold on this relationship as being disobedient but I did know that it was not GOD's plan for me but...oh I wanted the relationship to work so bad. So I told myself that I could change him and that we had such a great connection(what I now know is that we had soul ties to each but that is for another blog posting). I am thankful that GOD opened up my mind and heart to the truth and now after years of me asking the guy to let me go so I can move on after 4yrs I have now asked GOD to give me the strength to walk away with a clear heart and mind.

I feel good about my new deliverance and it opens up my spirit to know what true obedience it. 1 Samuel 15:22 says 'But Samuel replied, "What is more pleasing to the LORD: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to HIS voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.'

My desire is to listen to GOD's voice instead of my own. I know that my voice can be jaded but Romans 8:28 reminds me that GOD causes everything to work together for the good of those who love HIM and are called according to HIS purpose for them.

I now know that I Am Purposely Driven by HIM!
