Davidisms: Delayed Obedience Is Disobedience

Did you know that delayed obedience is the same thing as disobedience? It is. The Bible says, “Without delay I hurry to obey your commands” (Psalm 119:60 GNT).

Consider what would happen if a parent told a child to do something. But instead of obeying, the child hesitates. Waits. And then delays obedience some more. Then finally says, “Well, let me think about it for a while.”

Parents don’t let kids get away with that. Neither does God.

If God has spoken to your heart, and you know what you are to do but aren’t doing it - that’s delayed obedience. Which is really disobedience! You can’t expect God’s favor and blessing in that posture.

When God tells you to do something, do it! Immediately.

For delayed obedience is disobedience.
