Trust And Be Blessed

Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord. Proverbs 16:20 NIV

The Lord always wants what is best for us, so it’s important to follow His instructions for our lives. Although we may not always understand why He is leading us in a certain direction, we can rest knowing He will never lead us astray. He can see the entire outcome, and we can only see what He allows us to see. There have been many times in my own life that God was leading me in a direction I didn’t fully understand. I had to trust Him, obey His instruction, and walk by faith.

It brings peace to follow the path He has laid out, and He always makes sure we have what we need. It has brought amazing joy when I’ve gotten to the point in the journey where I can see why God required me to do whatever He asked me to do. We never come up short when we obey the Lord. The uncertainty we face because of obedience to the Lord is overshadowed by the rewards we receive, especially the rewards of deepening our relationship with Him and growing stronger in our faith. May God bless you as you continue to trust and obey!

I will be taking a blogging break, but hope to return in a couple of weeks or so.

  2. God’s way is perfect. You are right many times the uncertainity we face because of obedience often overshadow the rewards. The enemy always show up where he is not invited. Our God who is always in control know how to work once we continue by faith.

      1. Are you able to see my posting since I migrated the site. Beverley from becomingtheoilandwine.com found out that the my post she had liked were unchecked and she went back and like some of them.
        I thought the website transfer would be smoother

  3. Dawn, it’s so true, when on this journey, we see the value of what our obedience produced, it encourages us to trust more and lean in (hopefully) as an immediate response. Blessings as you take time to listen and soak in His love and direction. ♥♥

  4. I just completed a post that mentioned that God wants the best for us to be published on Thursday. Then I saw your post. The Lord does confirm His Word. You deserve a break Dawn. I don’t know how you do it but you are consistently good and on time. Get some rest. We will be right here waiting for you. I will continue to visit to read your older posts that I have not gotten a chance to read.
