1 Samuel 15:22
"...obedience is better than sacrifice."
God places significance on obedience. He would much rather you be obedient to his instruction than for you to give him money offerings, fasting and etc. God gives you instruction and you’re in a situation where you don’t understand what’s going on in your life, you need to remember to be obedient and to trust in the one who does understand. There are blessings that follow a person who is obedient just as there are curses that follows a person who isn't.
