“I will never forget Your precepts, For by them You have given me life.”
Psalms 119:93 NKJV
A precept is a general rule to regulate behavior. God has given us His word to govern our lives. His word is not a suggestion, it is a command. Biblical faith is based on obedience. There is no excuse for lukewarm compromising Christianity.
True blessing and freedom is found in obedience. Israel was blessed as a nation when they walked in obedience. The discipline of the Lord is brought when we choose to live in rebellion and disobedience.
God desires for us to walk in the abundant life He has for us. There are things that we need to remove and put to death. If we are unwilling to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit we will miss out on what the Lord has for us.
