Instead of just doing something of my own accord, I decided to ask in my spirit if I should do it. How surprised I was when I was told simply, 'no.'
Intrigued by this, I began to formulate in my mind what to do next; however, I must admit there was a 'why' lurking there. Before I could continue, I heard very distinctly, 'obedience is better than sacrifice.' That ended my inquiry.
Now, I am thinking about obedience and sacrifice; in fact, this went on for another day or so. What an interesting revelation surfaced. Obedience is sacrifice; often obedience is yielding our desire to His wishes. We are laying down our way for his which often requires sacrifice.
