God Thinking XXXV - Prayer Environment 3

"You Must Keep God's Commandments

Christianity without relationship and responsibility, without God's leading and our following, is just religious rhetoric.

Do not fall for Christianity without relationship and responsibility.  It is empty and void of power.  It sounds good, but God wants your relationship with Him to be based on truth, not feelings.
Is there a cost to truly follow Christ?  Yes, daily blessings, answered prayer, powerful testimony, effective witnessing, unspeakable joy, God’s rest, inner peace, abundant life, and more than can even be perceived.

Even though there will be trials and tribulations, storms to weather and mountains to climb, when you honor God with your obedience they are all overcome.

When you allow Jesus His righteous place in you, it becomes easier and easier to obey Him. 

“And why call ye me Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say” Luke 6:46. 

How will you know what to pray for if you are not obedient to God’s Word?  
As you can see, you need to obey God’s commandments if you are to have an effective prayer life.
