Does it ever seem to you like everything you read, study, or hear goes back to the same theme? As if God is trying to get a message to you? I notice that a lot in my life. The scriptures below are the ones I’ve written in my notes from different Bible studies and Quiet Times in 2013, and when I put them together the other day, I saw one underlying theme (at least for my life at the present): Obedience.
I think I know that God is trying to teach me something about obedience. Oh how I pray to learn it this time around! His Word never returns void, so I trust that He will use this simple list of Scripture to speak into your life too, according to the “theme” He is working in and around you. All for His glory and for the sake of His Kingdom ~
