TOPIC: RECEIVING DIVINE INSTRUCTION (1)
Text: Isa 66:1-2
Heaven is my throne, earth is my footstool,
What sort of house could you build for me? What holiday spot reserve for me? I made all this! I own all this!” God’s Decree.”But there is something I’m looking for a person simple and plain, reverently responsive to what I say
When a person goes to a superior with a self sufficient attitude and still seeking for help, he will only attract wrath to himself. Attitudes speak louder than actions. It gives you a smell which can be perceived. It is the true reflection of the unspoken thoughts, unrevealed decisions made in the heart. It cannot be concealed forever. Your attitude will reveal the hidden secret in your heart. The heart is the depth of the man. Your thought and words will surely affect the state of your spirit and all these form the state your heart is before God. He seeks for sincere people who will worship him ( John 4:24).This is the most pertinent thing in receiving divine instruction. What is the condition of your heart? Have you sincerely put out other options to receive from him alone with the faith that he is the only way to everything good? (John 14:6). If you want to fulfill life, he is the way( Jer 1:5).If you want a husband, he is the way. If you want health is the way ( Isaiah 55:2), all good and precious gift comes from above. This is the faith in the heart of a genuine seeker, without this state of heart, seeking God is mockery of ourselves not him because God cannot be mocked, whatever a man sows he will reap ( Gal 6:7,8). If we seek him with the whole of our heart, we will find him( Jer 29:10). Many have come to God with a religious heart and could not find him. These have presented God as being difficult to hear or acting very slow. Our God is faster than what he creates. If light could travel at a speed of 3000km/s, if plane could travel at the speed of sound, do you think God will be slow? Do you really want God? Do you believe he has a purpose for you as written in his word? ( Jer 1 :5, Jer 29:11) Then, start exploring God! Seek him in accordance with his word and the discovery will shock you. You will come out a new man!
I receive the cultivation and alignment of my heart obey his word as I press into this new realm of discovery of him in Jesus name
