In HIS Presence


Read: John 2:1-10
Meditation verse:
“His mother said to the servants, “whatever He says to you, do it” (John 2:5)

If you are going to reach your highest potential, you must operate on the principle of bold obedience in your walk with God. This simply means that you obey even when it does not make sense. Faith is not in your head; it is in your
heart. 2 Corinthians 4:18 says, “while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal”.

God would sometimes ask you to do things that does not make sense to the natural man. Imagine asking for wine and being told to fill jars with water. Imagine needing money for tax and being told to go to the sea and cast a hook to collect a piece of money from the mouth of the first fish that comes up (Mathew 17:27). Imagine fishing in tested waters all night as an expert fisherman and catching nothing, then being told to cast your net into the least
likely side of the river (Luke 5:5). Imagine been told to roll away the stone from the grave of a man who had been dead several days and stinking, so that he could be brought back to life (John 11:39).

God knows the end of every matter from the beginning. He declaresthe end and then sets things in motion from the beginning. The blessing is not the first call. The first call is usually a test and calls for complete obedience, not half
measures. If you obey, then the second call which is the blessing will follow. If you do not obey, you will miss the follow up call. And the sooner you obey, the faster you will discover what God has in store for you.

What is God stirring your heart towards? Are you struggling to obey because it looks foolish? The foolishness of God is wiser than the wisdom of men. God’s ways are not our ways, His thoughts are not our thoughts. Do yourself a world of good by responding quickly. Remember, obedience begins only when youtake the first step.

Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest.

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:

Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.WHAT FOOTPRINTS ARE YOU LEAVING IN THE SANDS OF TIME?
