CAN YOU FOLLOW GOD’S DIRECTIVES❓
If you want things to go away for you, exclude God in your affairs. If you want your plans and endeavors to hit bricks, reply solely on your initiative without God. If you lean totally on your own understanding, philosophy and logic, you will sooner than later meet a cul-de-sac. For, no one can ever make it in life except the Lord approves of it.
Genesis 26 relates the second account of famine in the scripture. This famine occurred during the days of Isaac. And, as every responsible father and husband would do, Isaac chose to head down to Egypt, a place famine did not affect. Perhaps, he recalled that his father- Abraham, travelled to Egypt with the entire family and survived the first occurrence of famine. Maybe, he saw others fleeing to Egypt and decided to join them.
As he prepared to leave, God appeared to him and advised against the movement. The Lord, instead, instructed him to go a different direction and sojourn there for blessings. Isaac obeyed the directive of God and became a hundred times blessed in the end.
The Lord is telling you this morning to trust, follow and rely fully on His directive. He knows more than you can ever know. He sees more than you can ever see. He understands more than you can ever comprehend. Do it God’s way, not your own way.
No one can ever make it in life except the Lord approves of it.
Lord, help me to trust, follow and rely fully on Your directive everyday of my life.
