So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. Genesis 12:4
In this reading, it says “so Abraham departed as the Lord had spoken.” A lot of people have ignored the voice of God in their lives, and in disobeying the voice of God have brought sorrows, shame, disappointments, and failures to themselves. Abraham obeyed as the Lord spoke. He left his country, kindred and his father’s house to the land that God was yet to show him. No wonder he is referred to as the father of faith. After he obeyed, God blessed him. “And I will make of thee a great nation and I will bless thee, and make thy name great and thou shalt be a blessing” (Genesis 12:2). God has made a promise of ‘blessings’ to those who are obedient today. “And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.” (1 Samuel 15:22). God doesn’t play with obedience to His instructions and commands.
Beloved, begin today to obey the Word of God concerning your marriage, academics, finance, and so on. Obey His calls and get blessed as Abraham did. Resist that pride, stubbornness and attract the favour of God through that your obedience. Whether it is what you read in scripture, heard in a message or an instruction from God through your pastor, obey it and you will be both delivered from evil and blessed immensely.
In doing this, don’t forget that giving your Firstfruit is a sign to God that you are ready for His blessings in your life this year.
1 Samuel 15:1-23
Healed of post-surgical complications
I delivered two of my children through CS. After the last one, the place where I was opened from continued paining me and discharging pus. I took all manner of medications, all to no avail. During a service one day, daddy gave a word about someone who had a surgery and the place was still an issue. I came out and he prayed. That was the end of the problem. The pain and the discharge of pus stopped. Praise the Lord!
