O my Redeemer, My Redeemer liveth. O my Redeemer; My Redeemer liveth. Serving the living God; Yes, am serving the Living God, Amen! Serving the living God; Yes, am serving the Living God, Amen! In the morning, early in the morning, in the Morning, I will raise and praise the Lord. What about you?

Beloved, this is my heart felt songs for the Lord this morning. Are you in the same mood to honour the King of kings this morning? You may not be in the mood to sing this morning but melodious songs are infectious, sometime you don’t feel like singing but before you know it your body begin to respond to the rhythm of the song and your head will either be nodding or your body will start to move.

Unconsciously, you see yourself doing this irrespective of the kind of music but when you become conscious of what you are doing, you are startled a bit than you comport yourself. I guess you will agree with me.  So I beg you in that Name that is above every other Names – Jesus, to be alive this morning irrespective of how last week ended.

This is a brand new week before you and God is set to do the extra ordinary in your ordinary routine. Your weeping had reached heavens and your tears collected in the bottles by the angels has arisen as a memorial before God this day.

Beloved, we are going to consider our readiness in responding to God’s commands in our lives. How willing are we in responding to the commands of God? Sometime what God will be demanding of us may not be as easy or common to do. Especially when it involves living the known evil to the unknown.

But the good news is that, if it God’s command, it must be better than any genius invention or knowledge. Is so funny to leave a lucrative job as banking, telecommunications, a medical doctor, a lawyer under any circumstance or disguise and said you are called into the ministry to either be preaching, teaching, evangelism with no one to pay you or under any known organization where you pay is guaranteed.

But you know what, if that is what God has said, He will always have a way of meeting your obligations. You may not like it but His plans standeth sure for that moment until He choose to change it but you must accept what He has to offer.

It is a step of faith that He has called you into, remember our fathers of old Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Joseph, David and very many others.

There is no postponement with God, His Timing is always an accepted time and when He commands, the time to accept is now. Let read more from the message below and I hope you will be blessed:

The Spirit of the Lord God is on Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to bring good news to the poor.

He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and freedom to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of our God’s vengeance; to comfort all who mourn.—Isaiah 61:1–2

God’s timing is perfect! When He speaks, the time to respond in obedience is now. We often act as if we have all the time in the world to obey Him, but history doesn’t wait on our commitments. There is no such thing as postponing a decision with God. Either we obey, or we disobey. It is either faith or unbelief, obedience or disobedience.

When God announces that now is the acceptable time, what you do next is critical. How often people have been unprepared when a word came to them from the Lord. God said, “Now is the time for you to respond to Me” and their response was, “But I’m not ready. I have some things I need to do first. I’m too busy!” (Matt. 8:21). God’s timing is always perfect. He knows you, and He is fully aware of your circumstances. He knows all that He has built into your life until now, and He extends His invitation knowing that His resources are more than adequate for any assignment He gives you.

That is why Scripture tells us God is concerned with our heart. If we do not keep our heart in love with Jesus, our disobedience when God speaks could affect the lives of others. When God speaks it is always out of the context of eternity. We don’t have to know all the implications of what He is asking. We just have to know that it is a word from almighty God. “Now” is always the acceptable time to respond to the Lord!

The second like it is when Christ gives a command, what you do next is very critical. Come along for more enlightenment:

So He sent two of His disciples and told them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a water jug will meet you. Follow him.”—Mark 14:13

The two disciples were given very detailed instructions to go to a certain town and look for a particular man performing a specific task. He would have a large room, furnished and ready to observe the Passover. These instructions might have seemed unusual had it not been their Lord speaking, but the two disciples obeyed and found everything just as Jesus had said. Jesus knew exactly what they would find, and so He guided them specifically. One of the most memorable and precious times the disciples would spend with their Teacher hinged on the obedience of these two.

Obedience to Christ’s commands always brings fulfillment. When the Lord gives you instructions, obey immediately. Don’t wait until you have figured it all out and everything makes perfect sense to you. Sometimes God will lead you to do things that you will not fully understand until after you have done them. He does not usually reveal all the details of His will when He first speaks to you.

Instead, He tells you enough so you can implement what He has said, but He withholds enough information so that you must continue to rely upon His guidance. Your response will affect what God does next in your life. Your obedience may affect how others around you experience Christ as well. If there is any directive God has given you that you have not obeyed, obey that word immediately and watch God’s perfect plan unfold in your life.

What has God instructed you to do, stop postponing it, get going now and the Lord will reveal the rest to you as you obey Him. He might yet take you to another level of career but this time with your ministry delivered to you, you will run with His vision in mind and not your ambition.

This week is blessed in the Name of the Lord. our going out and coming is assured in Him. He will yet do that which no man will do for you. Set the ball rolling and watch God hands in everything you do.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
