CHOOSING THE WILL OF GOD ABOVE ALL ELSE
The primary responsibility of the leaders we have reviewed thus far is to show us the will of God. If you do anything contrary to any of these leaders, you are out of the jurisdiction of God.
The devil likes to deceive Christians to think they can have their way and still enjoy the best of God. That is not true. You will pay for choosing your way. The first commandment in the bible of Satan is “Do what thou wilt” and the central theme of God’s kingdom is “Thy will be done”. What shows us as real Christians is not just that we are born again, it is that we live by the will of God. The will of God is not something that happens automatically to us, we need to choose it.
Any time you do anything that contradicts what any of these leaders has revealed to you, you are out of the will of God. If your spirit tells you not to embark on a journey and you go ahead, you are out of the will of God. The fact that nothing happens to you on the trip does not mean it has God’s approval.
Many times, when things happen to Christians, we try to blame it on God or something else. Doing this will make you miss the plan of God for your life. God does not want you to play the blame game; He wants you to accept responsibility so that you can find out where you missed it and how to correct yourself.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, I make a fresh decision to always choose Your will in every matter that concerns me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
