TODAY’S MESSAGE: Obedient Heart (1 Samuel 13:13-14, 15:1-23, Proverbs 4:23 27:19)
TO KNOW: God rebukes and rejects a disobedient heart. God delights in an obedient heart.
TO APPLY: Does your life and lifestyle reflect a heart obedient to God?
TO LIVE: Go to God and ask Him to assess and address your heart issues.
TO PRAY: God, I surrender to You my heart, my mind, my will, and my way. God, I desire to submit myself to You in complete obedience. Holy Spirit, would You guide me as I seek to assess and address any heart issues I have. Strengthen me to walk in obedience to You. Amen.
