Today we will be dealing with 20 bible verses about disobedience.
Keeping the commandments of God is paramount. God is always happy when we keep and obey his words . He is happy with obedient children. We remember that the bible told us that God loves us and He is always glad and happy with us when we stand by His words and obey Him when in public and also when no one is around. Disobeying God means you’re defying His words and questioning the power He has over our lives as our Father. Let’s endeavour to make Him happy always.
In the book of acts of apostles, imagine what would have happened when God told the disciples to stay in a room and in one accord and wait for the descending of the HolySpirit,what if the disciples had gone against Jesus’ instructions, they would have missed their encounter with the HolySpirit. When we are being led by the HolySpirit to pray ,our duty as Christians is to do what is expected of us and act accordingly to the instructions given to us for by a man’s strength he is nothing.
There is punishment for those who disobey God’s instructions but also know that there’s a reward for those who act accordingly to God’s will and leave by His plans for our life. 20 bible verses have been collected to help us understand more about obeying God and the benefits.
