David Jeremiah Devotional 17th January 2024: Total Obedience

TURNING POINT DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR 17 JANUARY 2024 BY DR DAVID JEREMIAH

Welcome to David Jeremiah Devotional, an American evangelical Christian author, founder of Turning Point Radio and Television Ministries and senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church. Read and digest the word of the lord for today and see how powerfully it will impact you. God bless you.

Sovereign authority is not an easy concept to grasp immediately. From a young age, children find creative ways not to obey a parent’s instructions, complete with rationalizations. Adults can do the same—like explaining to a police officer why we were exceeding the speed limit. But sovereign means sovereign, even when we don’t agree or understand.

Israel’s first king, Saul, learned obedience the hard way—twice. Once he performed sacrificial offerings instead of waiting for Samuel as he had been instructed and lost the promise of his kingship as a result (1 Samuel 13:8-14). Then he failed to totally destroy the Amalekites as he had been instructed and was removed as king (1 Samuel 15:12-34). In both cases, Saul had excuses and reasons for his disobedience. He learned that “to obey is better” when it comes to honoring God. Sadly, Saul learned that man’s ways are not God’s ways. He learned that God desires obedience above all.

Settle in your heart today that you will obey our sovereign God in all things, big or small.

Let us beware of being wiser than God.
