OBEDIENCE TO DIVINE INSTRUCTIONS IS THE KEY TO A FULFILLED LIFE
January 13, 2021
Life is subject to instructions which God wants us to obey; though He gives us free WILL to obey or not to obey. Our actions towards these instructions will either result to blessing or curse or outright abortion of destiny.
Obedience is a key to accomplishment. Obedience is a link to great success in life. Disobedience delays promises of God to mankind; sometimes terminates a glorious destiny. Each phase of life accompanies with divine instructions which God wants mankind to strictly obey. Our choices will definitely determine what will happen to us now and in the future.
God instructed Abraham to get out of his country, from his family and from his father’s house, to a land He will show him. Note He did not instruct him to go with Lot, his cousin. Gen 12:1-4. Despite his disobedience, God blessed both Abraham and Lot in livestock, silver and gold. But God’s promises for Abraham are beyond what he had then. Gen 13:1-3.
THE NEW THINGS FROM OLD THINGS
This implies that, God wants us to know that new things can still emanate from old things, thereby making it to become new for that particular period or season. God has given us all it takes to make things happen.
Chain of events created an avenue for Abraham to have a second chance to adhere with what God told him before he departed Haran. The herdsmen of his livestock strived with Lot’s herdsmen. The separation of Lot from Abraham led to his doom because he was not in God’s agenda for Abraham. God established His initial covenant with Abraham when Lot departed from him. Gen 13:14-16. Obedience is better than sacrifice. God wants us to obey His commandments in order to enjoy His blessing. Deuteronomy 7:11-15.
