Wilfredo de Jess says, ‘Understanding can wait, but obedience cannot.’

We all go through seasons when we can’t see what God’s doing, or why. It’s really ok. Our God is kind, and so near to us, every second of every day. But He doesn’t owe us an explanation for what He does and doesn’t do, or for what He requires of us.

Just surrender to Him.

He knows all the answers to the questions you’re carrying. While you wait for Him to reveal more, enjoy spending your days saying yes to Jesus. Say with the psalmist in Psalm 131:1 (, and keep doing the next right thing.



‘If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully keep all His commands that I am giving you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations of the world.’ (Deuteronomy 28:1)

We see this principle all over Scripture: God honours obedience. He’s not looming over you – big stick in hand – ready to smack you when you mess up. He’s inviting you into a life of liberating obedience. Because obedience frees you from sin’s consequences, to live life at its best – the way it’s designed to be lived. And God honours you for choosing to obey even when – especially when – no one is watching.
