Happy Sunday to you all. It's the first Sunday in December. Here is the word for today.

Trust

Trust is the belief in the truth and ability of someone or something. (English dictionary)

The word trust is a common word that has been abused nowadays. Whenever you want someone to do something for you, you'll say trust me, whereas you know you'll disappoint the person.

Obedience

Obedience simply means adhering to an order, request, or law.

As children, we do sing this song in school and in the children's choir in church.

Obedience is the very best way, to show that you believe.

Doing exactly what the Lord commands, doing it happily.

Action is the key, do it immediately.

Joy you will receive.

Obedience is the very best way to show that you believe.

The song has a great message in it. We sing it just for fun in school then. Especially when it gets to the place where we'll spell the letters of OBEDIENCE.

O... B... (Obi!) E... D...(Idi!) I..E..N..C..E

Little did we know that the song is more than what it is. The song is a song for everybody, both young and old.

My dad once told me a story about trusting and obeying

A son went into a higher institution. While he was going, his father gave him $10 to spend in school and a Bible. The father said, "Son make sure you read your Bible". Ok sir "the son replied".

On getting to school, the boy took the bible given to him and kept it in his wardrobe. After a week of resumption, he finished the $10 given to him by his father.

He called his father to ask for another money. (On phone..)

Son: Dad I need some money, the one you gave me was too small, I finished it in just six days.

Father: Son have you read your Bible.

Son: Yes sir! I've read it (lying)

Father: Son read your Bible

The son was confused and said angrily...

Son: I asked you for money, you are telling me to read my Bible

Father: Son read your Bible.

The father hung up the call. The son got very annoyed, he went to his bag, took the bible, and threw it under the bed. (I asked him for money he told me to read the bible. Will the bible send money to me? The son soliloquized).

He starved for another three (3) days. He couldn't bear it again. He called his father for the second time.

Phone ringing...

Father: Hello Son

Son: Hello Dad. I'm starving to death here in school. I need money to eat and buy some things.

Father: Son, have you read your Bible?

Son: Yes sir!

Father: You haven't read your Bible. Read your Bible.

Son: (getting angry). Why are you doing this to me dad? I need money to eat, you...

The father hung up the call.

The son began to cry. He cried till he slept off. He woke up in the evening and then thought why his father always insisted on him reading his bible. He went under his bed and brought out his bible.

Behold as he opened the bible, he met an envelope in it. In the envelope, there was a cheque of $200. The son was very happy and thought of how he has starved because he didn't obey his dad's instruction.

He called his father again. (Phone rings)

Father: Hello Son

Son: Hello Dad, I've read my Bible.

Father: Laughing ( at last)

Son: Thank you very much sir.

Father: All these while you've been lying to me that you read your Bible. If you had read it on the first day you got to school, you would have seen the cheque. If you had trusted and obeyed me, you wouldn't have starved. Now you've learned your lesson, make sure you read your Bible always.

Son: Yes sir! I promise to always read my Bible.

******************************

When we trust and obey the lord, we would enjoy the benefits as his children.

A popular Christian Hymn says;

Trust and obey 🎢

For there's no other way🎢

To be happy in Jesus🎢

But to trust and obey,🎢

When we Trust and Obey God's word, he would shed his glory upon us

Trust and Faith

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things unseen. (Hebrews: 11 vs 1)

Trust and Faith are similar words. When we have faith in God and believe he'll do things for us, we will surely be answered.

Although the word trust is common, it carries a wide range of meanings. When you try to convey something to people through storytelling, people understand it easily, just like you did.

Sometimes what we need to grow might be in front of us, but because we are too ignorant to see it, we often starve..

To obey, one must trust. The problem with a lot of people nowadays, is not disobedience but the lack of trust required for one to be obedient to the person giving the instructions or the cause.
