God Thinking XXXV - Prayer Environment 2

"When you are obedient to God, you have a proper understanding of His will for your life.
To obey God’s commandments, simply means, that you understand, that God, through His infinite wisdom, knows more about your body and your mind and your spirit than you do, and you choose to follow His prescription for receiving His promises.  
By choosing God’s prescription for receiving God’s promises, you abide in those precepts that:
  • guarantee personal satisfaction for your body
  • provides infinite inquiries to stimulate your minds
  • and imparts spiritual fulfillment, as the Holy Spirit dwells in you and fills you with joy, peace and power.
“For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not burdensome” I John 5:3. 

If God says His commandments are not burdensome, why do we say that they are?    

How can we say that we love God, that we trust God, and that Jesus is Lord if we do not follow God's leading in our lives?
You thought I was going to say God's commandments instead of God's commandments for our lives.  God's leading and God's commandments are one in the same, because God will not ever lead you or guide you to do anything contrary to His Word.
Note: This one truth is real important to repeat over and over again until you sense in your spirit that you fully understand it. Understanding this truth will empower you to have the confidence to know without any doubt that you can keep God's commandments.  Keeping God's commandments is not found in reaching some level of perfection in behavior.  It is perfection in direction that meets God's criteria.
