"Even the smallest bit of obedience opens heaven and the deepest truths of God immediately become yours..." WOW. Talk about incredible! The fact that all I have to do is obey what He says and boom, the heavens open. Luke 11:28 says "BLESSED are those who hear the Word of God and obey it." I love knowing that blessings fall upon us when we obey Him. Because lets face it, there are plenty of times when I do not feel like obeying every single thing He asks of me. But when I know that there are blessings in return...it makes it all worth it.
"Yet God will never reveal more truth about Himself to you, until you have obeyed what you know already." This is the part that got me. Mostly because I had never heard it put that way. The fact that there is SO much to be revealed about God and who he is blows my mind. And if we don't obey what we already know, than there is no way we will ever find out more. There is something so beautiful about the desire to know more about Christ. And with that desire should come another desire to obey His commands because of how badly we want to know those truths. And with truth comes freedom (John 8:32 "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free!") And freedom gives us the ability to showcase just who God is and who He made us to be. I love that.
