#117 A Deeper Level of Obedience

About The Power of Obedience Series
Obedience is not just a reflexive performance of God’s will. It is richer than we know, and its power is known by too few. Would you be one of them?
Now I want to turn to a word that is under and behind obedience. Just for the sake of this writing, let’s say obedience is the bowing of the will to God. “I will obey Your will by the power of the Spirit.” Perhaps most obedience is this…and it is wonderful.
But there is a deeper level that pleases God, and this is what I eventually came to understand from my mandate of Deuteronomy 28:47-48. “How to do His will with delight.”
The word is SURRENDER.
Let’s say that obedience is the bowing of my will to God’s will, and surrender is the giving of my heart for the purpose of His heart.
