Read 2 Corinthians 10:4-6 from your Bible
Obedience is one of the things that launches the believer into the realm of praying without utterance. You can bring down imaginations, destroy strongholds and avenge every disobedience, just by your own obedience to the instructions of God.
If you do whatever He tells you to do, the devil cannot undo you (1 Pet. 3:14). You can live a hurt-free life through obedience, because it renders your enemies helpless and endears you to God for divine favours.
A cheap way to disarm the devil is through obedience to Scriptures. At the marriage in Cana of Galilee, when they ran out of wine, after telling Jesus about it, Mary said to the people, “Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.” (John 2:1-9). Obedience turned their lack and impending shame into plenty and glory.
It is not that God loves some people more than others. It is simply that some have placed themselves where they naturally compel God’s love. There is a place in God where all other things are added to you without you asking for them.

I have been on that frequency for so many years and it has never failed me.
If you don’t obey the general rules of Christianity, how will you ever enjoy the blessings of God without asking? Strengthen your stand on the obedience line and you will send the devil parking without tears.
Value is a function of cost. If Christianity does not cost you anything, it will deliver no value to you. Obedience is the price for divine value. God keeps on enhancing your value in the kingdom as you build up your obedience to Him. When your obedience in any area is fulfilled, you will naturally and automatically avenge all disobedience, and enjoy rest in that area.

Instead of proving God by paying their tithes, many are praying to Him for finances even in their disobedience. It doesn’t answer to prayer. Do what He has commanded. Prove Him and see if He won’t fulfill His part.
God delights more in your obedience than in your sacrifices. Obedience is supreme! Disobedience angers God and moves Him to reject people; and whosoever is rejected of God becomes an easy prey of the devil.
“If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:” (Isaiah 1:19).
The good of the land is available to all, but access to it is for only the obedient. So, take advantage of this silent prayer line, which commits God to answer you, even before you call. And very soon, people will begin to ask you, “Do you ever have problems? because you will live as though the devil didn’t exist. All, because of the divine covering obedience commands.
