Thus says the Lord:” Stand in the ways and see, And ask for the old paths, where the good way is, And walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ Jeremiah 6:16 New King James Version
How many times do we ask the Lord for guidance and when He provides it we do not like it so refuse to follow it? As a consequence we do not receive His blessing but receive His curse instead.
There is no middle ground with Jehovah. Obedience brings blessings while disobedience brings curses. Joseph- Anthony: Green
One of the reasons it is important we read the Bible every day because it gives us plenty of examples of people who refused to obey Jehovah’ s command and as a consequence they suffered. We need look no further than when the Israelites refused to cross the Jordan and not only were denied the blessings of the inheritance land but suffered forty years in the desert as a result
There was a time I felt Jehovah telling me to go to one place to obtain work and I thought I knew better and went in the opposite direction. I ended up not only with no work but no money and no place to stay. I was living in a tent in a park. Finally I obeyed and headed in the direction He intended me to go. As a result I was blessed with one of the best contracts I ever enjoyed.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God our Sheppard) for the wonderful privilege of being led into Your eternal purpose for my life of service to You. If you do not know your calling yet: Please Jehovah Rohi bless me with the patience and wisdom to allow You to mold me as You prepare me for the service unto You that You have prepared for me from before time began. I exalt You in the name of He who was obedient to You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
