Today’s post is dedicated to the band Addison Road, who is currently out on tour with Sanctus Real.  They are being obedient to what God has asked of them.  Just today, March 6, 2010, they faced a huge obstacle while being obedient.  The RV and trailer they use while out on tour caught on fire, destroying some of their gear, all their merchandise, and the personal belongings of Jenny Ryan and baby Anniston.  What amazes me is the perseverance of this group.  This is not the first time they have faced on road obstacles, yet they continue to go out on the road facing obstacles in obedience to God.

How many of us continue to be obedient when we face obstacles over and over again?  Do we give up when we face the obstacles, or do we persevere in the task God has set out before us?  My son is currently sitting in front of me telling me a story about the two Bioncles he has built,  He is telling me that if they were to give up after being attacked just once, they would just be allowing the enemy to win.  He said that we have to do the same thing when Satan does that to us, we can’t give up or we allow him to win.  Interesting he is telling me this story right now, just as I write this.

Addison Road has refused to allow the obstacles to stop them from being obedient to the task God has asked them to do.  They are facing the obstacles to obedience with the perseverance necessary to complete the task.  By doing that, they are refusing to allow the enemy to win.  Will we do the same in our tasks?
