Gen. 35:1 God said to Jacob, "Now move on to Bethel and settle there. Build an altar there to worship me--the God who appeared to you when you fled from your brother, Esau."
When God speaks, do you listen? Has God laid on your heart things to do and you are dragging your feet? What is keeping you from obeying the Lord? What is keeping you from trusting Him?
God has a plan for you. He knows where you need to be in order to fulfill that plan. He knows that until you cooperate and obey Him, things won't go as well for you as they could and should. He knows you will be happiest when you obey Him. He knows what a difference you will make in the world when you obey Him. So, He is calling to you,
"Trust and obey, me. Just do what I am telling you to do. I will be there with you and for you. Don't delay; just do it. And when you get off your duff and obey Me, be sure to first pause to worship Me."
Worship draws us closer to God. It draws our attention to Him. It helps us to have a purpose and meaning for what we do. It's all about the Lord. Whatever we do in life, if we do it for the Lord's honor and glory, He will bless it. Listen to God and obey Him. You will be glad you did.
