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?
Years ago I learned, in a very dramatic way, that my God wants me not only to do His will but to delight in it.
I was teaching on prayer in a large church over the course of a weekend. As I was speaking to ladies on Saturday morning, a woman went berserk and began screaming. It was a chilling, bloodcurdling sound! She ran out of the room, was subdued by church members and carried away by ambulance to a psychiatric ward. I was shattered and somehow felt responsible.
After it was over, we all sat in the meeting hall rather stunned. What now? The Lord said, “Are you going to let Satan win?” I said, “Lord, I cannot go on but I will stand up at the podium if You will take over and speak.” Well, He did and somehow I finished the message with the ‘appearance’ of calm and strength.
