Give God Something To Work With…


This is a continuation of a post I wrote entitled “Bringing obedience into perspective”
The issue of obedience keeps on surfacing so I would like to go deeper. In the post I mentioned I spoke about how God can work with our obedience. I shared from Acts 21:12 about how Paul was about to go to Rome and face imprisonment but I also showed you how he knew that even though it was going to be hard, he would rather be obedient because God could work through his obedience! He was not concerned about his life. He understood that through his obedience God could do mighty things. He understood that his obedience to God was the key.
That is what I was saying and more.
Lets move on.

Your obedience to God is so important. Jesus came to earth and was obedient till death. He could of just saved His life but instead He chose to be obedient even till death. He saw how by His obedience, the world would be saved! Through His obedience God could save the whole world. Being obedient is so important. God wants to do mighty works in the earth but He is looking for sons and daughters who will be obedient to Him no matter what. 
Do you understand that your obedience is exactly what God needs to do miracles.

I see our obedience like this, when we are obedient to God we are giving Him something to work with! Picture your obedience as play dough. The more you obey the more dough God gets so He can build, create and work on this earth and in your life!
Understand that your obedience to God is what allows Him to move in your life! We must desire to be obedient. That should be a goal.

My pastor gave an amazing revelation about obedience. When the Israelite s were in the desert God commanded them to collect Manna for the day and if they tried to keep any of it overnight it would rot, right. So why did the same Manna last two days on the Sabbath? Before the Sabbath they were told to collect enough for two days.
We learn that it was not about the Manna but it was about the Israelite s obedience to God. When they obeyed God the miraculous could happen no matter how impossible the situation seemed!

Obedience is a big thing for me. I want to be obedient to God even more no matter how hard it is.
Let us strive to be obedient to God. We are not forced to be obedient but it is a want to because we love God. That should be our attitude.

What You Need To Know If You Are Called.


I was listening to a pod cast by Christine Caine today and she was speaking about discerning the will of God in your life over your own will. It was a very insightful pod cast I must say. As she was speaking she made a statement that hit me.

She was speaking about how a lot of people have had words spoken over them. Those people are so busy trying to pursue what has been spoken over them but they are not faithful with what has been given to them now!

 

That was so deep because what God has planned for us is so amazing but in our own strength we cannot accomplish it. What we should be doing right now is to be faithful with what He has given us now until the word that God has spoken over us comes to pass. We need to be faithful with what God has placed in our hands now because as we are faithful with that He will bless us with our own, but how can God give you your own if you are not faithful with what He has placed In your hands???

So in conclusion I am agreeing with Christine Caine. We need to be faithful with what God has put in our hands. Another thing I want to clarify is, the call of God on your life is so important. Don’t despise it or think it wrong to follow it. As you bring it to God and wait and trust, you must also be faithful with what He has placed in your hands!!!!

Before Jesus went into ministry He was under the authority of His parents. Luke 2:51 says,

                                                                                                                     

And He went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them; but His mother kept all these things in her heart.

And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.

 

Did you read that? Jesus didn’t abandon His parents to accomplish the call of God on His life. Instead, He submitted to them being faithful with what was put in His hands and in the meantime His mother pondered all the things that had happened in her heart!!!!!

That is what we need to do as well. As we have been given words of prophecy, we need to ponder them in our hearts but at the same time be faithful with what is in our hands…..

God will bring what He has spoken over you to pass in the right time. Amen
