The hymn has been on my mind for a couple of days and I have been singing and meditating on it. I have a leading from the Lord to share it with here:
Just as God who reigns on High
Spake to men in days gone by,
So the Lord is calling men today;
And, my brother this is true,
Whatso-e’er He says to you
There is but one thing to do, just obey
The Lord has speaking to you for many years to work for him in his vineyard and till now you have not respond to that call, you have been giving excuses upon excuses and now you see someone close to you doing that very thing the Lord called you to do. In Fact it’s been over two years now that the Lord spoke to you over that issue of your dressing and you are yet to do something about it; He has ask you to cut off that ungodly relationship, association and those group of ladies who have constantly draw you away from your conviction but yet they have remained your ‘bestie’ despite God’s continuous warning and instruction.
Sometimes the Lord has warned you against taken some steps in regard to your life and those of your loved ones but you didn’t pay attention to his word. Despite several dreams and revelation pointing to the wrong choice of partner you still went ahead to get married and now the consequences are too grave to bear. A lot of people have lost their lives and some have ended up in problem and put others as well in problem because of disobedience to God’s word and instruction. Some embark on journeys that the Lord has warned them not to embark on forgetting that you are only covered where the Lord want you to be. You can’t be working against his word and except his covering and protection. Some have taken the grace of God for granted and have kept postponing the fulfilment of what the Lord has ask them to do. Remember the bible says: Samuel said, “Has the LORD as much delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices As in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams. 1Samuel 15:22
The Lord do not take the sin of disobedience lightly; its rebellion against God as the bible says in 1 Samuel 22:23
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
Disobedience has make many to loose their lives untimely and has made many loose many vital blessings and breakthrough.
So beloved rise up and do that which God has instructed you to even if it look stupid to man remember Abraham was instructed by God to give up his son as a test of his obedience to God. Repent of your past disobedience and surrender your self to his will for your life. If he is asking you to marry that brother that does not have anything today it’s because he sees into the future and he has prepared a glorious future ahead for you both. Don’t be move by the present situation if you are sure it’s God go ahead and do his will.
If you delay in obeying God…it might mean a delay to your breakthrough and success and don’t forget disobedience is a sin and God frowns at it. Ask God for the grace to obey today and it shall be well with you.
“Just obey, just obey,
Is the way, God’s way;
When His message comes to you,
There is but one thing to do,
Just obey, just obey”
God bless you.
