Last Saturday (March 19th, 2016), I went to a Preachers Conference. I found myself Praying a rather surprising an unusual Prayer. I said something to the effect (may not be the exact wording).
Lord, open my Eyes, so I can See the things I need to see that you want me to see that I have until now refuse to see. Open my Ears, so I can Hear the things I need to hear that you want me to hear that I have until now refuse to hear. Open my Heart, so I can Understand the things I need to understand that you want me to understand that I have until now refuse to understand. Help me to Speak the things you want me to speak, that until now I refuse to speak. Help me to Go where you want me to go, that until now I have refuse to go. Help me to Do the things that you want me to do, that until now I have refuse to do.
So many times God wants to Bless in ALL these areas, but we refuse these Blessing, by being disobedient, 1 Samuel 15:22, & 1 Thessalonians 5:19 Tells us that obedience is better than to sacrifice, and not to quench the Spirit (do not disobey what the Spirit of God is telling you to do).
There is a reason why God is telling you to do what ever it is He wants you to do. You have no idea what good will come of it, and what Blessings He has in store for your obedience. Ecclesiastes 3:1-11, & Isaiah 55:1-11
