ODE - O'NEAL'S DAILY EXHORTATION WEDNESDAY, MAY 5, 2010 When God Speaks! II Chronicles 20:20 And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth , Jehoshaphat stood and said , Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established ; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper. – King James Version They were up early in the morning, ready to march into the wilderness of Tekoa. As they were leaving, Jehoshaphat stood up and said, "Listen Judah and Jerusalem! Listen to what I have to say! Believe firmly in God, your God, and your lives will be firm! Believe in your prophets and you'll come out on top!" – The Message Translation How many times have you heard someone give you directions only to turn around and disobey what you heard? How many times has your mind been made up and you figured it was best to do it your own way? Especially in times of crisis, you may find yourself at a cross road of decision. You have the choice to either do what you heard or follow your mind and your own thoughts. God has a funny and strange way of bringing victory in our lives. The Word of God says that He often chooses the foolish things to confound those who think they are wise. (I Corinthians 1:27) This is where trusting and obeying has to kick into gear in your daily life. Don’t go to church to hear a sermon and walk out of the door doing the complete opposite. Stop reading books and magazines that God allowed to come into your presence at the right time to speak to your situation, to only turn around and follow your gut feelings or emotions. No longer listen to messages on the t.v., radio or tapes and then decide that what you heard is not for you! You are wasting time! God promises that if you believe Him (His Word) and follow the directions of those He assigns to speak into your life (apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, teachers – and anyone else He desires to anoint with a Word for your situation) you will be successful. Don’t waste anymore time! Just walk by faith and not sight and obey the Word of the Lord and walk into your blessing. You may find yourself doing strange things – just do it and be blessed!
