Imagine having two employees. One employee seems to ignore your every command. The other employee, however, is just the opposite.
The 2nd employee obeys every directive, every policy and always listens to your instructions. Then, they follow those directions as best as they can.
When review time comes, which of these two employees are going to most likely be blessed with a raise? Naturally, it’s the one who has been obedient.
In Genesis 26:4, God said to Isaac, “Through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because Abraham obeyed me and did everything I required of him, keeping my commands, my decrees and my instructions.”
God blessed Abraham and his descendants due to Abraham’s obedience to God. What might God do for you if you did likewise?
