I remember the day so vividly because God made a point to me.
I was given a word from Him, to give to the person stood beside me, but I was apprehensive…
What if I hadn’t heard God right?
What if the person rejected what I said?
As I was arguing with God about the words I was to speak and how I was to introduce myself, the person to the other side of me approached the person I had a word for and spoke the exact same thing God had told me to say.
Shocked wasn’t the word! But I was disappointed that I had missed an opportunity to show God’s goodness…
Then the clincher
God quietly spoke in my Spirit and said, “If you don’t speak what I ask, then someone else will.”
From that day, I have always tried to be obedient in being led by God
Yet, how difficult is it when the kids are arguing, you have deadlines to meet, or maybe you don’t have enough money to pay that bill, let alone give the money to someone else. I get it
Sometimes we don’t know why God asks us to do something and maybe we never will, but I have learnt that obedience brings a blessing and whether that is seeing the other person find God. Or finding out that another person paid your bill unexpectedly – whatever happens, the most important thing is, that we don’t ignore God
