Beloved, good morning! how are doing today! Have you Thank The Lord for the grace to see another day? As simple as it may seem, please don’t forget to “Say You Father for the gift of another blessed day ahead of me” pronounce your day blessed, remember as a man thinketh so he is.
God bless our day and make us prosperous in the Name of Jesus!
We keep off yesterday teaching by the very Word of our Jesus Christ to His disciple- “I have chosen you out from the world.” I remember telling us that we must consciousness of who we are, what God said you are. Praise the Lord.
Did you remember the story of Gideon? The story of Gideon comes in the book of judges at a time when a people called the Midianites had taken control over the Israelites, God’s people. Until the angel of God told him that he is a mighty man of valour, Gideon was threshing grains in the threshing floor while his people we are held captive and was greatly improvised as a result. He was so afraid that he was threshing wheat by the winepress instead of in a windy place so the wind could come through and separate the chaff from the wheat. The chaff would be carried away and discarded, because the kernel of the wheat is heavier, it would fall to the ground and you could collect it and have it to eat.
The problem is that Gideon was doing all of this indoors in a wine press – the reason is that he was afraid.
And when Gideon understood what the God put inside of him, he rose up to the challenge and go deliver his people.
Beloveth, our walk with God lies in obedience not in hearing. And that is what we are going to consider today.
Come along with us for more:
“Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice.” 1 Samuel 15:22
Saul had been commanded to slay utterly all the Amalekites and their cattle. Instead of doing so, he preserved the king, and suffered his people to take the best of the oxen and of the sheep. When called to account for this, he declared that he did it with a view of offering sacrifice to God; but Samuel met him at once with the assurance that sacrifices were no excuse for an act of direct rebellion.
The sentence before us is worthy to be printed in letters of gold, and to be hung up before the eyes of the present idolatrous generation, who are very fond of the fineries of will-worship, but utterly neglect the laws of God. Be it ever in your remembrance, that to keep strictly in the path of your Saviour’s command is better than any outward form of religion; and to hearken to His precept with an attentive ear is better than to bring the fat of rams, or any other precious thing to lay upon His altar.
If you are failing to keep the least of Christ’s commands to His disciples, I pray you be disobedient no longer. All the pretensions you make of attachment to your Master, and all the devout actions which you may perform, are no recompense for disobedience. “To obey,” even in the slightest and smallest thing, “is better than sacrifice,” however pompous.
Talk not of Gregorian chants, sumptuous robes, incense, and banners; the first thing which God requires of His child is obedience; and though you should give your body to be burned, and all your goods to feed the poor, yet if you do not hearken to the Lord’s precepts, all your formalities shall profit you nothing.
It is a blessed thing to be teachable as a little child, but it is a much more blessed thing when one has been taught the lesson, to carry it out to the letter. How many adorn their temples and decorate their priests, but refuse to obey the word of the Lord! My soul, come not thou into their secret.
Beloveth, may God help us to be obedient to His Word, may we not hearers alone but also doers of the Word in Jesus Name. Consider the ways and things God has exposed you to and you are reluctant to carry it out? Ask God to help you, so that you will walk in the “Will” of God as Gideon did.
Gideon heard and obeyed, likewise it is expected of us to hear the teaching of the Lord and obey it to the latter and in such a way, the Lord will guide and protect us from all dangers in Jesus Name. may not worship God in vain but with our whole heart, believing and trusting Him in total in Jesus Name.
May God help us all in Jesus Name.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
