Obedience Technique: Signposts – Half 1
By Margaret D. Mitchell
Week of August 30, 2020
A couple of months in the past, my husband and I have been confronted with a pivotal determination.
So, I pressed God for a solution, as a result of our timeline was quick.
What ought to we do? Ought to we do that? Or ought to we try this?
God answered my prayer by displaying me a imaginative and prescient of a highway block in entrance of the way in which He directed us to go three years earlier. I might clearly see in my thoughts’s eye a barricade in entrance of a highway with the Phrases “LIMITED TIME” printed over the scene.
God made His will clear to me that we have been not to go that approach and that the time for that observe was over (Ps 119:110).
God had one thing new.
So, in persevering with to hunt and observe Him, we finally found He had a extra stunning, even loftier place for us than three years in the past.
Mates, what higher place does God have for you on this hour? What new starting?
What’s His subsequent step for you?
Psalm 28:7 TPT says, “…Once I totally belief in you, assistance is on the way in which.”
God’s approach is a certain path of life, shielding us from each hazard (Ps 119:25, 37, 114).
His signposts are revelatory clues that He makes use of to carry readability and assist direct us alongside His greatest path. After we know God intimately, we all know His voice in ways in which align with His Phrase (Jn 10:27). We’ve eyes to see and ears to listen to His fact (Matt 13:16, Ac 28:27 AMP).
Our degree of obedience to His methods largely determines the extent of life we expertise on earth.
Considerable life is there for individuals who select to obtain it (Pr 11:19 TPT).
And it’s for His glory.
Psalm 31:19 NIV says, “How plentiful are the nice issues that you’ve got saved up for individuals who concern you, that you simply bestow within the sight of all, on those that take refuge in you.”
After we love God deeply, we revere Him, run to Him, and put His eternal Phrase earlier than us. After we know Him, we belief that He’ll authoritatively direct and set up us in His will and methods as we set our hearts upon Him.
Revelation of His Phrase is His gentle of understanding to us. This revelation-understanding is the signpost that guides us to our subsequent step (Ps 119:97, 100).
Psalm 119:140 TPT tells us, “all Your guarantees glow with hearth.”
So, identical to the pillar of fireplace (and a cloud) that guided the Israelites nearer to their promised land, God’s illuminated Phrase guides us into His guarantees to us as we set our entire hearts on Him and search Him for understanding (Ps 119:130, 2, 80).
Righteous God goes earlier than us and reveals us the way in which, in line with His Phrase (De 1:32-33).
He reveals these secrets and techniques to us not solely so we are able to have an understanding coronary heart, however so we are able to obey Him (Ps 119:34). This postures us to favorably full assignments and obtain enduring rewards to higher assist others.
After we love God greater than something (or anybody) else, we are going to observe Him greater than these different issues.
Mates, that’s when life will get superb.
Psalm 119:127 TPT says, “Really, your message of fact means extra to me than a vault crammed with the purest gold.”
Psalm 119:129 TPT tells us, “Your marvelous phrases live miracles; no marvel I lengthy to obey every little thing you say.”
So, God’s Phrase as miraculous, beneficial treasure makes us wiser than our enemies and protects us (Ps 119:98, 92-94).
Holy Spirit teaches us alongside His simple approach and directs the circulation of our lives by His teachings.
Proverbs 21:21 TPT tells us, “The lovers of God who chase after righteousness will discover all their desires come true: an plentiful life drenched with favor and a fountain that overflows with satisfaction.”
Conversely, compromise of His Phrase diminishes life.
So, we’re to search for and obey God’s signposts of illuminated Phrase passionately, setting them ever earlier than us. (Ps 119:130-131).
We’re to be just like the psalmist in Psalm 119:112, who decided in his coronary heart to “totally and eternally” obey no matter God mentioned.
Mates, the extra we come into alignment with God’s Phrase, the extra we come to expertise the revelation of His coronary heart and the elevated circulation of His energy to assist others.
Proverbs 11:30 TPT tells us “…a life lived loving God bears lasting fruit, for the one who is really sensible wins souls.”
Proverbs 11:24-25 TPT say, “Generosity brings prosperity, however withholding from charity brings poverty. Those that dwell to bless others may have blessings heaped upon them, and the one who pours out his life to pour out blessings might be saturated with favor.”
Mates, these are non secular legal guidelines that work on our behalf and show true in our lives.
So, do you like and belief God at His Phrase? Are you keen to observe Him and His methods?
In that case, in gentle of all this, our prayer ought to be Psalm 119:29-32 MSG, which reads:
Barricade the highway that goes nowhere; grace me along with your clear revelation. I select the true highway to Someplace, I put up your highway indicators at each curve and nook. I grasp and cling to no matter you inform me; God, don’t let me down! I’ll run the course you lay out for me for those who’ll simply present me how.
In Jesus’ Mighty Title.
Mates, be a part of me subsequent week for Half 2 of Obedience Technique: Signal Posts.
