Seven Vital principles for creating abundance and terminating lack
4. The key of obedience CONT’D.
Imagine what was going on in the mind of Peter when after toiling and toiling without any result Jesus asked him to cast his net into the deep for a draught. Peter was an expert; though he voiced out his mind but he said, ‘nevertheless at thy word’, he obeyed. God’s instructions have nothing to do with your expertise or experience. The word of God that you respond to, the word of God that you obey generates a spiritual force that begins to operate immediately. The spiritual force that the word of God carries is able to transform, crush, heal, deliver, restore, empower, uplift and establish the purpose for which it is sent. Isaiah spoke about it in Isa. 55:10-11, “For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” When you obey the word of God, it is not your responsibility to have it fulfilled, there is a spiritual force that you have aligned with. Heaven backs his word up to fulfil it. That is why faith is superior to fact. The fact could be that you may have headache right now but faith says, ‘by his stripes, you are healed’. If you believe the word of God, it will act for you; it will produce results in your life. It is no longer your effort to make it happen, it becomes divine mission accomplished. The resources of heaven are unleashed at your disposal and you will become unstoppable, you will become a miracle waiting to happen.
- Lord, from today, help me to be complete and prompt in obedience to the leadings and promptings of the Holy Spirit in every area of my life. Help me to align completely with your word which is your revealed will. Thank you heavenly Father. Grant me grace to freely do your will in every area of my life and to fulfil it in Jesus name.
