Be it people, situation or circumstances, when it hears the word of God and does not accept or obey it, transformation will never occur and the situation and circumstances will persist.
You and I may need to reexamine ourselves in relation to some instructions we had received. Have we complied in obedience? Maybe you cherry picked like I did, friends, now is the time to repent and obey the Lord, for His instruction is for our good.
1 Samuel 15:22 But Samuel replied:“Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the Lord? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams. 23 For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, he has rejected you as king.”
No amount of sacrifice, gift, seed, or whatever we have to offer can appease or incline the Lord to bend backwards for us. God is not a man! The Lord will not oblige our disobedience.
Ezekiel 3:4 He then said to me: “Son of man, go now to the people of Israel and speak my words to them. 5 You are not being sent to a people of obscure speech and strange language, but to the people of Israel— 6 not to many peoples of obscure speech and strange language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely if I had sent you to them, they would have listened to you. 7 But the people of Israel are not willing to listen to you because they are not willing to listen to me, for all the Israelites are hardened and obstinate. 8 But I will make you as unyielding and hardened as they are. 9 I will make your forehead like the hardest stone, harder than flint. Do not be afraid of them or terrified by them, though they are a rebellious people.”
You may be wondering and thinking, how hard is it to just obey! Just obey! Can we really do anything except the Lord help us? It is by God’s grace that the dinner you had last night digested and your body is able to get nutrient, and the left over excreted. If you’ve ever been constipated, I mean a bad one, you’ll understand.
Friends, let us ask our Father to help us by His Holy Spirit that dwells within us to yield our all in obedience. The stake is high friends, now is the time to truly obey and do the will of God!
