Bible Reading:  1 Samuel 15: 21-22, Isaiah 1:19

Memory VerseBut Samuel replied, “What is more pleasing to the LORD: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams. 1 Samuel 15:22 (NLT)

Sing the hymn: Trust and obey. A woman wanted to park into a new house. She decided to tell her General Overseer (G.O) before packing in. She requested of him, “G.O, anoint this Oil as I go sanctify the new house”. Out of curiosity her G.O asked, “Where is the house?” She said behind the cemetery. “What! Please don’t pack into such a house. There is a traffic of spirits around such a place. The spiritual atmosphere is not healthy.” She was recalcitrant. She went ahead. Let me pray for you: May you not confront a problem that is bigger than your present spiritual level, in Jesus name. 

One day, she went to work and as such locked all her doors because she stayed alone. Before she came back from work, egusi soup was already on the gas cooker. “What type of mystery is this? No other person has access to my keys. She was confused and bewildered at the same time. 

At another time, she came back from an outing to see yam boiling in her kitchen. Then she knew she was big in trouble. Nobody told her to go back to her General Overseer.

You see, to obey is better than sacrifice. Do well to hearken diligently to custodians of spiritual authority over your life. Follow them as they follow God.

Quote: To obey is better than sacrifice.

Prophetic Decree: I curse powers cursing you to turn deaf ears to instructions that will benefit your destiny, in Jesus name.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Numbers 31-32


1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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 blest if we trust and obey.

4. But we never can prove

The delights of His love,

Until all on the altar we lay;

For the favor He shows,

And the joy He bestows,

Are for them who will trust and obey.

5. 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.
