"Hey! Listen!" If you ever played The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, you eventually heard that little glowing fairy named Navi say those words. Navi would give you instructions or hints and it was very helpful for players to listen to her. In this Christian life, if we just listen and do what God says, life will be better for us, we may ignore God instructions, which is bad for us, and just like in the game, when we ignore Navi, we end up wondering around for a while until we finally find where we need to go or do, wasting so much time, effort, and maybe even dying in the game for not listening. God has shown us in his word how people in the past would not listen to him and they would end up facing many different consequences like wondering the wilderness, dying, losing out on blessing or protection and many others. Sin can tempt us but don't let it rule you, sometimes we just need to shut up and listen to God, stop giving excuses why you can't stop sinning and just stop. When reading the Bible we learn it's better to listen to God and do what he says, we need to remind ourselves everyday that when we willingly listening to God, he will be happy and bless us for sure.
Psalm 81:13-16 New International Version (NIV)
13 “If my people would only listen to me,
if Israel would only follow my ways,
14 how quickly I would subdue their enemies
and turn my hand against their foes!
15 Those who hate the Lord would cringe before him,
and their punishment would last forever.
16 But you would be fed with the finest of wheat;
with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”
