SCRIPTURE: And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given. Mark 4:24
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God will never give you a new revelation beyond your obedience of the last instruction.
Our anchor scripture reveals to us that God gives more lights and insights to those who hearken to the ones He previously showed them. So, obedience brings insight.
When you obey God’s instructions, He is delighted to give you fresh instructions. God gives more lights to the one who obeys Him.
On the other hand, if there is something God has shown to you that you are still playing with, God will not have any business showing you fresh things because you have refused to do anything about what He showed you before. God will never give you a new revelation beyond your obedience of the last instruction. Obedience to God is key to insight.
Every time God shows me something new, I also write down actions as I receive the revelation. What do I do with what I’m seeing? What do I do with what I’m hearing? What steps should I take? I document not just the revelation, but the actions for immediate implementation. Then God says, “This young man is ready for more.”
There are people whose books are filled with instructions until those instructions become their condemnation. And they are saying, “I am not seeing anything again, even if I pray.” How would they see when they have not done anything about the things God had showed to them before?
Beloved, do you want to receive from God again and again? Obey the last instruction He gave to you.
Remember this: God will never give you a new revelation beyond your obedience to the last instruction.
1. Is there anything God told you to do that you have not yet done? Do it now.
2. Ask God for mercy if you have failed him before.
3. Make demands on the grace to do as God bids you.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to obey whatever You will instruct me to do. I say yes to Your Will Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
