|“At Thy Word, I Will” | James R. Miller, 1904||Obedience|
Many people suffer from the ignorance of those whom they trust as guides. But in Jesus Christ we have a Leader who never errs in wisdom. He never gives wrong advice. He is never mistaken in His decision as to what we ought to do.

We also each have the town in front of us that God calls us to walk in. What is the town? It is God's way. It seems dark, uncertain, not promising a light, easy life. It calls us to give up our choice things—the things, people, places that are most dear to our hearts.

|Dear Princess, Number 4 (Fall 1997) | Timeless Truths Publications, 1997||Obedience|
God is always giving us trials that are open doors. Every single trial we have is a chance to be an example, to show someone what Christ was like. Oh, dear sisters, take those privileges to be examples seriously! They are so important!

How many of us, when we had planned to have a day in town, but have to stay to watch our little siblings, say, "Sure, Mama, whatever works out is fine with me"? Or, when [some plan] doesn't work out... you don't even question why it couldn't be made to work?

I have just been thanking the Lord for helping me to choose Him completely in my youth and wait on the Lord for a companion. It surely pays! I was 29 before I married and the wait seemed so long then, but now it seems like nothing! I am so glad I waited on God.

Take everything to the Word of God and measure it to see whether it be of God or man. If it doesn't line up... then we know that it isn't truth. What better guide do we have than the Word of God? We cannot go wrong if we bring everything and measure it to the Bible.

|Even unto the Death | Andrew Murray, 1900||Obedience|
All through His life He had been "in all points tempted like as we are".... In this last hour of the powers of darkness they make one great assault on the very citadel of His being, and seek to tempt Him with the sorest of all temptations... the assertion of our self-will.

|God or a System: Which? | Lottie L. Jarvis||Obedience|
To love God personally and perfectly will produce the most perfect obedience and the most perfect heroism, and the most perfect destiny of which the soul is capable.... to obey Him with supreme personal loyalty, is our only true holiness and service.

|Hear God’s Voice and Follow Him | Fred Pruitt, 2012||Obedience|
Brothers and sisters in Christ, let us keep in our hearts a love for the truth and the crucified way, lest we be led astray by any of the deceivers around us.... Those who get grounded and settled in the truth will not be blown about by different winds of doctrine.

|Holy Spirit Obedience | Tyler A. Schones, 2012||Obedience|
The burden of this message is to express the... necessity of the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit to bring about this type of obedience that Jesus came to produce in us, and a solemn warning against any attempt of the flesh to fulfill this calling.

|Into the Deep | George D. Watson, 1896||Obedience|
The depth into which we launch will depend upon how perfectly we have given up the shore, and the greatness of our need, and the vision of our possibilities. The fish were to be found in the deep.... So with us; our needs are to be met in the deep things of God.

|Is Holiness Legalism? | John Wesley, 1762||Obedience|
Do not say, "I can do nothing." If so, then you know nothing of Christ. Then you have no faith. For if you have faith, if you believe, then you "can do all things through Christ" who strengthens you. You can love Him and keep His commandments.

|Obedience That Pleases Christ | James R. Miller, 1905||Obedience|
The most triumphant word anyone can say at the end of his life is, "I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do." And it is the only way to receive the approving verdict, "Well done, good and faithful servant... enter thou into the joy of thy lord."

|The Handmaid of the Lord | Mark P. Spinks, 1998||Obedience|
Now a handmaid's position in life is a very humble position.... they're the folks that are around to do whatever the mistress says to do.... It's not that she does great, big tasks all the time; it's the little things—I'm here; I'm ready for service; I'm at hand.

Precious felt very pleased with herself when she had finished the sleeve. "I don't think I need Mother Matron's help at all.... It will be a surprise to show her how much I've done."... The fabric didn't meet at the edge, but a quick scissors snip took care of that.

"She can draw cool people, too," said Janice. "Last week she won a prize in our church fair." "I'm going to be a movie artist when I grow up," said Juliann. "Hey Jan, can I see your new movie-star Barbie?" Janice pulled a shiny box out of the closet.

"You've ruined it!" Justin screamed, and threw himself down to pound the dirt. Teddy was crying and Rochelle was calling for help. Justin didn't listen. The go-cart that he had worked so hard to build was smashed! Tears blinded his eyes.

Taylor lived on a farm. He and his brother, Antonio, had the greatest places to play! There were bushes and trees and blackberry vine thickets. And all over were little paths that Taylor and Antonio had made. "Don't get in the poison oak plants," Taylor said.

The Bible says that He "learned obedience by the things which he suffered." That means Jesus didn't always feel like obeying and pleasing His parents, but He did it anyway. He set His ears to listen. His heart was ready to obey.

Today Cocoa Puff had been more interested in finding a way out of the fence than enjoying the taste of salt. She knew the master wouldn't like it. But why should she mind that? Cocoa Puff... had begun to be quite sure that her own way was best.

Mark decided to begin sneaking around at night. No matter how silently he moved in the daylight, someone could still see him. He could be a better sneak in the dark.... He didn't think that God, who records everything we think and do, was watching him.

Jack did not listen. "Daddy, I need you!" he cried. He leaned forward in his car seat, but he couldn't reach Daddy. Panic made his heart beat faster. "Don't leave me, Daddy!" "I'm here, Jack." It was Daddy's voice, far, far away.
