Topic: Dealing With The Lifestyle Of Disobedience [Monday April 9, 2018]
Scripture: And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. 2 Corinthians 10:6.
Thought For The Day: When your obedience is complete, nothing is permitted to disobey you.
Previously, we saw that the lifestyle of disobedience is a deadly enemy of destiny. Disobedience aborts a man’s glorious destiny.
Now, our anchor Scripture makes it clear that when your obedience is complete, nothing is permitted to disobey you. This means when your obedience is not complete, everything is permitted to rebel against you.
It has been confirmed that one of the consequences of disobedience is the crash of destiny; that is to say, disobedience prevents God from driving your destiny according to His plan and purpose, and if God is not the Driver of your destiny, destiny accidents are inevitable.
Now, how can you deal with the lifestyle of disobedience?
i) Check out areas of disobedience in your life
You see, there are times that many things in your life may not be seen until God shows them to you. It was in the year that king Uzziah died that Isaiah saw his filthiness and repented (Isaiah 6:1-5).
ii) Promptly repent of every act of disobedience if you want your destiny safeguarded.
Just as Isaiah repented when God revealed his sin to him, make up your mind to repent likewise.
iii) Never respect anyone enough to agree to disobey God
There are many people who have disobeyed God out of respect for people. Adam respected Eve his wife and ate the forbidden fruit she gave him whereas God commanded that he should not eat it.
Beloved, my counsel is, do not agree with anyone to disobey God, even if it is your boss at your place of work. Make God the priority of your life above everyone and everything.
Remember this: When your obedience is complete, nothing is permitted to disobey you.
1. Check areas of disobedience in your life.
2. Promptly repent of every act of disobedience.
3. Never respect anyone enough to obey him by disobeying God.
Prayer: O Lord, give me the grace not to respect anyone enough to disobey You in order to obey them. Help me to obey You unconditionally, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
