Today Reminder - 26 October 2012 (Obey)

A reminder for today
The LORD had said to Abram, "Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father's family, and go to the land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you." (Genesis 12:1-3)

Hearing, listening and following – is to obey.

This is probably one of the most interesting scriptures in the Bible and it leaves us with such a great idea of how God will take us in a direction and then He can just change our course and send us on to greater things. I love how Abram hears this call from God and how he obeys without doubting.

We love to hear God’s voice and then doubt it and then make up our own plans. And when our plans fail, we wonder why that could happen. Following our own direction will lead to more bad choices until we change our direction and follow God’s plan. We are stubborn in that sense and disobedient.

My dear friend, God’s plans (however small in our eyes) is far greater than we can ever envisage. Listen carefully, hear exactly what God says and follow His plan with perseverance. God will lead you to where you are most needed, even if it that means you must travel a little.

I pray that you will hear God’s voice and that He will show you the way He has planned for you and that you will follow Him with a contempt heart, in Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
