And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.__ 1Samuel 15:22
I have a number of years on this journey and I can’t think of one thing that God has asked me to do (or NOT to do) that was outside of my reach. (I wish that I could say that of some people that I have met. lol (But that is between them and God. lol) My sweet moments with God are when He speaks to my heart and when God has asked me to do something FOR HIM.
When I have been prompted to give something ( of value) away (money, a gift, a kind word, a phone call or a text, etc.), I realize that we (people) are God’s hands and feet here on Earth. Exciting! But the Phophet Samuel settles the issue, it is better to obey Our Father God than to offer Him a sacrifice.
Father knows best!
