Shall we obey God carefully?


In terms of obeying God, to miss by a little can mean to miss by a lot. Imagine if the scientists that launch space probes to the moon were to miscalculate the trajectory by fraction of a degree. This slight error will lead to the probe missing the moon by thousands of kilometres! When we choose not to be detailed in our obedience to God, our partial obedience is not obedience, but disobedience. Sometimes going further than what God has said can also lead to disobedience!


Yonggi Cho shared about a major building project where he started to build a huge new church auditorium. He felt God gave him the ok for the project. So they started building as they raised funds. But a national economic crisis occurred and the church was not able to raise enough funds. The church got stuck in the middle of the building project with huge debts. Cho sold everything he had to help pay the debt but it was so bad he became depressed and almost committed suicide. God later showed him the problem was Cho added another major building to the project which God never gave the ok for.


Deuteronomy 5:33 (NIV): "Walk in obedience to all that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess."
