I read a story about a young son of a missionary, in Zaire. The boy was playing in the yard when suddenly he heard his father yell to him from the porch, “Philip, obey me instantly! Drop to your stomach!”
Without hesitation, the boy did as his father commanded. His father, then, commanded,
“Now, crawl to me as fast as you can!”
Again, the boy immediately obeyed.
“Now stand up and run to me!” Philip responded, without questioning, and ran into his fathers arms.
When Philip turned around and looked back at the tree, where he was standing, he saw a huge poisonous snake hanging from one of the branches.
The boy could have hesitated and asked, “Why?” or “In just a minute.” But, he instantly obeyed. That simple act of obedience saved his life!
Could it save your life, if you let go of your free will and followed what GOD has told you to do with your life.
