A Year of Obedience

“Noah did everything just as God commanded him” Genesis 6:22.

Obedience is a wonderful way to please God. If an earthly parent finds pleasure in an obedient child, how much more does our Heavenly Father? An obedient child reaps beautiful benefits from doing as she is told. She experiences peace, knowing she has pleased God. Joy is another glorious by-product. How much stress have we caused ourselves due to disobedience? We have all been there. We remember the undue stress and consequences that were nowhere near worth the benefit we thought we got. Right?

Let’s purpose in our hearts to be children of obedience this year. Whatever the Father commands, we will say “yes” and obey. This will be a year when we make the Lord smile and bring Him glory. We will be the daughters who do not argue, question, or hesitate. He’s been such a good, good Father. Let us bless Him by being good, obedient daughters.

Welcome to Encouragement Outpost! My name is Dr. Georgia Pointer, a Christian writer who loves encouraging people in their relationship with Christ. I am a survivor of childhood rape and molestation, bullying, and emotional abuse. Negative thought patterns plagued me for many years until I learned to allow Christ and His Word to encourage and transform those thoughts. This background provides me with a passion to offer the same encouragement to anyone, not just abuse survivors, with the light of biblical truth that shines against the darkness of negativity, lies of the enemy, and daily struggles in living for Christ. I am a seminary graduate with a Masters in Christian Education. I also recently received my doctorate in Christian Counseling with a specialty in Family and Substance Abuse counseling. I served on staff for six years as a counselor at Moriah House of the Memphis Union Mission. I love the Word of God! I love studying it, teaching it, and speaking in public about it any chance I get. This blog, which I post about once a week, is my venue to share insights I glean. So, I invite you to subscribe to receive my weekly posts in your email and to share these posts with anyone you think might be encouraged by them.
