Obeying God‘s Instructions
by Pastor Andre Butler
And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, “As the Lord God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.” And the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, “Get thee hence and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.” And it shall be [when you’ve done what I’ve told you to do], that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there-
1 Kings 17:1-4
God’s ability to get wealth to you is dependent upon your obedience to Him, even on the receiving end. God prepared a miracle for Elijah, but God gave him very specific instructions: get out of here, go east, and hide by the brook Cherith. Only God could have gotten provisions to Elijah in the middle of a famine. Cherith may have been the only brook with water left. Only God could have known that.
Sometimes people think that wealth and blessings will only get to them when God uses other people to put money in their hands. No, God may put an idea, concept, or insight in your heart as a vehicle to get the money to you. If you know the idea is from Him, ask him what the next step is, and take that step. Obedience is the master key to receiving God’s will.
May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
