Can you Carry out the instructions of GOD? – The best most of us do is to recite the Lord’s Prayer without paying attention to the tasks in the words; your will be done.
Can you do His will when he commands you? Can you Carry out the instructions of GOD?
Hosea was no less of the persons that carried the instructions of God without regards to what people may think or say about him.
‘When the Lord first began speaking to Israel through Hosea, he said to him, “Go and marry a prostitute, so that some of her children will be conceived in prostitution. This will illustrate how Israel has acted like a prostitute by turning against the Lord and worshiping other gods.” So Hosea married Gomer, the daughter of Diblaim, and she became pregnant and gave Hosea a son. And the Lord said, “Name the child Jezreel, for I am about to punish King Jehu’s dynasty to avenge the murders he committed at Jezreel. In fact, I will bring an end to Israel’s independence. I will break its military power in the Jezreel Valley.”’ Hosea 1:2-5
Prior to Hosea, there were many more like Daniel and the 3 Hebrew boys in Babylon. They lived for God and not for themselves. Christ was the ultimate example of living for God and carry out HIS instructions.
Paul lived for God and for Christ by carrying the instructions of God. Who do you live for? If it is for God, Can you Carry out the instructions of GOD?
Dear LORD, give me the heart of obedience and reverence to carry out your every instruction.
