KEY SCRIPTURE: Joh 9:36 KJV “He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?”
The Lord met the man who was healed of blindness after he had been kicked out of the synagogue, and asked him,” Do you believe on the Son of God?” The man quickly responded, Who is He that I may believe Him. This man had a ready heart to respond and do what the Lord expected. This is the type of attitude God expects from His children.
In Genesis 12:1-3 the Lord appeared to Abraham, formerly called Abram and said the following to Him. Gen 12:1 KJV Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
Abraham obeyed and indeed God made a great nation out of him. He left his father’s house meaning he lost his name, yet God made his name great and made Him a real blessing. Abraham attained to all these because He had a ready heart to obey.
How ready are you to do what God calls on you? Someone once said if Christians would obey and practice just a quarter of what they hear in church, our world would have received a very great transformation. God’s power is so great, yet, humanity has not been privy to it, because the agents of God’s glory are not taking their place of obedience. Daniel lived in a foreign land, and his name was changed, yet he made sure the whole land was made to recognise his God and even worship him. Dan 6:26 KJV” I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom, men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and steadfast forever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end.”
The above was the decree of the king after Daniel had been obedient to God and survived the lion’s den. Have a ready heart to obey the Lord always.
Thank you, heavenly father, for your love and mercies that you continually bestow on me. My heart reverences you above all thing, and I’m always ready to do what you tell me. My life is promoted as I do your word.
THOUGHT: FOLLOWING GOD ALWAYS LEADS TO THE LAND OF BLESSING.
James 1:25 KJV” But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”
Gen 22:18 KJV “And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.
