Trust and Obey, There’s No Other Way
This was one of the first songs I learned as God’s love was poured out on me when I became a follower of Christ. One thing that I learned early on was to obey the Holy Spirit when He prompted me, without excuses, presumption, or reasoning. There is not enough to be said about the blessings, favor, and ecstatic joy that comes with our surrender to His every word. To obey the Lord you need to know Him, it takes trust to step out in faith to what He says; that His word is true and you can always rely on His wisdom and love for you.
TRUST AND OBEY
When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.
But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey. -John Sammis 1 887
1 Samuel 15:22 – Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice…
Ps. 84: 11-12 – The LORD will give grace and glory;
No good thing will He withhold
From those who walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts,
Blessed is the man who trusts in You!
Isa. 50:10 – Who among you fears the LORD
and obeys his servant?
If you are walking in darkness,
without a ray of light,
trust in the LORD
and rely on your God.
