Walking In Obedience

on April 23, 2017

Heavenly Father we thank you for being our Provider, Way Maker, Savior, Shelter from the storm and our place of Refuge when life gets tough. Lord our lives are submitted to You and our desire is to walk in obedience to You, Your will, Your word and Your ways. Lord our flesh desires to rebel against You and Your laws, so we need you to help us to walk in obedience to You. Help us to take every area of our life into obedience with Your word. Help us to be obedient to Your word by keeping it on our lips, meditating on it day and night and obeying everything written in it (Joshua 1:8). Help us to take our thoughts into obedience with yours for it says in Your word “We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5). Lord, help us to stay focused on You so that no obstacle seems impossible. For Your word says we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength (Philippians 4:13). Help us to be obedient to Your will and Your plan for our lives. For Your word says You have plans for us to prosper, and plans to give us hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). Help us to be obedient to where You call us to go and to what You call us to do. Lord give us a desire to be faithfully obedient and devoted to You.

Lord help us to be disciplined to be in Your word daily. Lord help us to faithfully pray fervent prayers and take the steps needed to live a more obedient life to You. Lord, we want to be your treasured possesions so help us to fully obey and keep Your covenants (Exodus 19:5). Through our acts of obedience help us to gain the confidence of knowing we are living in your will. Give us your peace in our obedience so that we can make right decisions that align with your purpose for our lives.

Lord forgive us for our disobedience. Lord show us any area of our lives where we are being disobedient. Lord deliver us from whatever keeps us from walking in obedience to You. Show us when we are not doing things Your way. Help us to hear You clearly and the very specific instructions that we need to follow. Lord let Your word be a lamp to our feet and a light to our path (Psalm 119:105). Teach us new levels and dimensions of walking obedience and trusting You. For every step we take in obedience help us to discover a freedom that we have never experienced before.

Where we may feel lost, Lord show us what we should be doing and help us quickly to obey it. Lord, if there are any steps of obedience that we need to take that we don’t understand, give us eyes of faith to see things with a change in perspective to see it from Your view. When we struggle to be obedient, Lord give us courage and strength to take the necessary actions to obey You.

Guide us Lord to follow your commands as you always know what’s best for us. Lord help us to make the essential sacrifices that are needed for us to take more ground to accomplish our destiny. Lord, strengthen us as we walk in obedience to Your commands and let us take possession of every blessing, opportunity, open door and all that You have for us (Deuteronomy 11:8).

In Jesus Name We Pray, AMEN!!!
