“And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.” 2 Corinthians 10:6
God will not lead you beyond your last point of obedience. Forces of life will not obey you when you are not obedient to God. It is when you are completely obedient that you will be able to revenge all disobedience. There is a saying that ‘he that comes to equity must come with clean hands’. God is interested in your obedience. Therein lies your blessings. Before miracles manifest, there is usually an instruction given. It is when you obey the instruction that your miracle will manifest. Prophet Elijah told the woman to give him food first. It was in her obedience that she received surplus to survive the famine. Prophet Elisha told the people to cut a stick and throw into the river. As irrational as the instruction was, they obeyed and the axe head floated. When the wine finished in the wedding in cana in Galilea, the mother of Jesus told them “Whatever He asks you to do, do it!” Their willingness to obey was further stretched when He told them to go and fetch water and then give the ‘water’ to the chairman of the occasion. It was their complete obedience that turned water into wine. Be completely obedient.
Half obedience is disobedience. Prophet Samuel told King Saul, “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. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry…” (1 Samuel 15:22-23). This was because God gave him an explicit command. “Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.” (1 Samuel 15:3). But he did not obey completely. “But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them…” (Vs 9). As a result, he lost the kingdom.
Beloved, God is not man. When He commands, He demands total obedience not half-obedience. This is one key to walking in the miraculous this month.
1 Samuel 15:1-27
SAY THIS PRAYER
Lord, I receive grace to be completely obedient to Your instructions and requirements of me. Amen.
As you walk in obedience, you will surely eat the good of the land where you dwell in Jesus name!
I came back from work one day and my boss called me on phone and told me to stop work, without haven done anything wrong. I was devastated. I was listening to radio some days later and heard daddy Larry preaching and he invited his listeners to the August edition of “Good morning Holy Spirit”. I came and he anointed us. The next day, my boss called me and apologized, and asked me to resume work immediately. Praise God!
