“Obey God and leave all the consequences to him” – George Washington Stanley

In an autobiography I’m reading by Doctor and Pastor Charles F. Stanley he claims this was one of the most important life lessons that his grandfather Pastor George Washington Stanley taught him that had a profound impact on his life.
He says in his book, as a matter of fact, if God told you to run head first into a brick wall to do it, and to know that God would make a hole to fit your head through by the time you arrived. What Faith!!
Charles Stanley, if you don’t know him is 86 years old and has been lead pastor of First Baptist Church in Atlanta, Ga since 1971. His “In Touch Ministry” over the years has been broadcast in 107 languages around the globe. Pastor Stanley has had a major impact on local churches and has changed the lives of millions.
I wanted to share with you the “Top Five” beliefs that he has incorporated into his life that he recommends that we do with our lives.
1. The most important thing in your life is your relationship with God.
2. Obey God and leave all the consequences to him.
3. God will move heaven and earth to reveal His will to you if you really want to know and do it.
4. God will provide for all your needs.
5. God will protect you.
I’m not sure your beliefs but would encourage you to step out on faith a little and give the above strategy a try.
2 Chronicles 16:9
The eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely his.
