CRITICAL AREAS OF LEARNING (4) - HEBREWS 5:8-9

2. You must learn obedience: 

One major thing that the Lord Jesus acquired was obedience. He did it to set a pattern for us to follow. This is the greatest gift in life and destiny. Your ministry, calling and destiny, all centre around your obedience. Obedience is not a gift; you have to acquire it by walking a road. Jesus had to learn obedience even though He is the son of God. No matter who you are, obedience is something that you must learn.

Moses lost his future on the subject of obedience. God said “Speak to the rock” but what did he do instead? He struck the rock and water came out. Working in disobedience does not always mean you won’t have results. Men rarely dispute results but God disputes any result that comes from disobedience. There are two positions that are dangerous to your obedience in life and destiny; 

1. When you have not succeeded: This is when there’s no proof of the calling of God on you. At that time, it easy for you to change your instructions. Many people have moved away from where God originally posted them. People have changed their details of instruction because it is not palatable or due to lack of results. 

2. The second place that is dangerous is when you really begin to succeed. At this time, you can have resources enough to enter into disobedience. It is at this point that people push their leaders to do what God never told them to do, what they are neither gifted for nor suited for. Sometimes, your nature and personality can be suited to certain things that God may not call you to do. This can often lead you into disobedience, so be careful of it.

 

PRAYERDear Lord, help me to learn correctly as you bring me across fathers and tutors in life and destiny. Amen!
