The Sure Way Up
By Rev (Dr.) Lizzy-Johnson Suleman
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Ezekiel 15-16
TEXT: “Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.” Isaiah 48 :17.
Every position or level you are, both in the physical or spiritual is determined by the level of instructions you adhere to. The level of harvest you receive is also determined by the level of instructions from the Lord. Listening to divine instructions and obeying them is the sure way to the top. Instruction is what you do not argue with but willingly obey them. Isaiah 1 :19; says, “If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.”
God speaks daily. The Bible says, “Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.” (Psa. 19 :2). When you hearken to the voice of God, you soar at the top. Deuteronomy 28 :1; declares, “And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth.”
Are you set to go up continually? Then awake to willingly obeying divine instructions. The voice of God is in His word; go for His word. When you read God, you will hear God. Let the word of God be your dailly meditation, your speech and your actions. Joshua 1 :8; instructed this to have good success. If you can devote time to the word of God, you will not lack His voice, or lack rising to the top.
God has a path for His children to give them an expected end. Make up your mind to be led and embrace divine instruction, the sure way up.
PRAYER: My Father! My Father! As I begin to pray, empower me to always seek and yield to your instructions.
