Today’s devotional is extremely important, please do not ignore.
God loves his children. God is very protective and jealous. If you are in relationship with God and are sensitive to the voice and promoting of the Holy Spirit, you will receive divine instructions and revelations.
If God begins to show you things about a situation, DO NOT IGNORE WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN SHOWN. Get your feelings and emotions out of the way and LISTEN. What you are being shown may very well save your life.
Ask three questions:
Why is God showing me this?
What are my instructions?
When do I need to act?
After you ask your questions, be quiet and LISTEN. Don’t call three people and ask them what they think. They weren’t the ones that gave you the instructions, so why go to them for the answer.
Our society is so used to microwave gratification that we have grown uncomfortable and anxious when we have to wait.
Still your mind and heart , and wait on God for the answers. Most importantly, once you receive the answers, OBEY.
There is a reason that 1 Samuel 15:22 says that Obedience is BETTER THAN Sacrifice.
1 Samuel 15:22
Expanded Bible (EXB)
22 But Samuel answered,
“What pleases the Lord more:
burnt offerings and sacrifices
or obedience to his voice?
·It is better to obey [Obedience is better] than to sacrifice.
·It is better to listen to God than to offer [Submission/Heeding is better than] the fat of ·sheep [rams].
I know that going where you have never gone before may be a little scary, but know that God would never tell you to do anything, or go anywhere, that he had not already prepared for you. Stand in faith. Walk out into the deep waters, as deep calls out to deep.
Saints of God, I love you and I want the very best for you. I pray that you would have every blessing that heaven has ordained for you to have. I also pray that you would be a blessing to someone else as well.
