Topic: Why God Gives Revelation In Piecemeal
SCRIPTURE: He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night. Job 20:8 (KJV)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Disobedience is the reason behind people’s inability to hear God.
MESSAGE: Yesterday, we looked at the mode and method of Divine operations. We understood that God does not reveal His plans to His children at once but in bits. He does so line by line and precept by precept.
The question is, why does God not reveal all of His purpose to His children at once?
Seed of Destiny Devotional: The Tragedy of Confusion
Consider the three reasons below:
1. God wants us to take one step at a time in life
One can easily fall if one takes too many steps at once. In order to avoid a fall, God reveals things bit by bit so that you can take a step at a time.
2. God wants to confirm your obedience
God does not speak to disobedient people. Disobedience is the reason behind people’s inability to hear God; they have not obeyed the last instruction God gave them, yet they want to have more. So, God gives you revelations in bits and pieces in order to confirm your obedience.
3. God wants you to maintain permanent dependence on Him.
God does not want you to come to a point where you do not need Him anymore. He gives you revelations in piecemeal so that you can maintain permanent dependence on Him.
Beloved, ask God for the grace to take one step at a time and to be obedient and dependent on Him.
Remember this: Disobedience is the reason behind people’s inability to hear God.
1. Make up your mind to take a step at a time.
2. Ask God for forgiveness in all areas of disobedience to Him and make up your mind to obey Him henceforth.
3. Maintain the attitude of dependence on God.
