Knowledge is Okay – Obedience is Better

green pasturesI was out on a prayer walk when I sensed the Lord telling me to deviate from my normal route. Instead of taking the longer route, He had me take a left up and over a small hill.
Did I have to know why? No. As Jesus’ slave (the biblical meaning of the term doulos), He has the right to tell me what to do, no matter the why. As Jesus’ sheep, He will guide me to the green pastures of peace. If I want to stay in that peace (one biblical meaning is to feel complete), I must go where my Owner and my Shepherd lead me. And then, rest in the truth that He knows and wants what’s best for me.
Oh by the way, because I went when and where Jesus said to go, I was able to meet and talk with a sheriff’s deputy to plant some Jesus seeds. I would have missed this opportunity if I had taken my normal route.
Knowledge is okay, but obedience is better.
