When Might Blessings Come

blessingsI’ve been thinking about a saying I heard earlier this year that I heard again just a few days ago. Blessing is on the other side of obedience.
In the Garden of Gethsemane, we have no known record of the Father talking to Jesus during one of Jesus’ two most intense human struggles (the other being on the cross). Why wasn’t God speaking or acting to relieve Jesus’ struggle? Jesus knew what He had to do. The only way out of the struggle was either to quit or to do what His Father had already told Him. Blessing (eternal life, reunited with Father in glory, our salvation, etc.) is on the other side of obedience (dying on the cross and an excruciating, though temporary, separation from His Father).
When you already know what Jesus wants you to do, blessing is on the other side of obedience. Your struggle today may have nothing to do with your enemy or your Father, but your will own. Blessing is on the other side of obedience. Stop struggling, in the Spirit’s power, just do it!
