“If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land” Isaiah 1:19, NKJV.
Just like with Israel, it’s not only about being willing and having good intentions. It’s not only about being obedient. It’s about being both. God wants us to be willing and obedient.
As the potter does with the clay, let God shape you from being unwilling to willing, from disobedient to an obedience in what He’s been dealing with you about, or that next step He’s been asking you to take. It could be something He wants you to pursue, or it could be simply putting your trust in Him. We all have our reasons, but we have to make that decision to move forward in Him. Say no to any fear or doubt, and let Him move you into both—being willing and obedient. Rest assured that as you do, you will eat the good of the land. You will experience the fruitfulness in your life that you long for, that you know belongs to you.
Prayer: Father, I praise You! I want everything You have for my life. I want to be a light in these times. Help me, Jesus, to not be one or the other, but be take me higher in being both willing and obedient. I thank You that I will eat the good of the land. I won’t refuse You anymore. I will be a willing and obedient man. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
