Obedience is what we will always need in our relationship with The LORD.
Why, you may ask? Because without Him, apart from Him, we can do nothing.
How do you feel when He gives you an opportunity, and He rewards you with seeing the results of what He told you to do; whether it be to give, or to witness, or to speak, to pray, or to write?
He is your shield; your hedge of protection on the path He gives you to walk on.
He is your exceedingly great reward; for without the faith it required to obey Him, it would have been impossible to please Him.
He is the rewarder unto those who diligently seek Him.
He is the Author and Finisher of your faith; and He anoints you with the power to carry out and finish what He has given you.
You are far more capable because of Who He Is. You can do all things through Christ, Who strengthens you.
The indwelling of Holy Spirit empowered you to hear the Voice of The LORD.
He has empowered you to know Him as the Comforter. He has empowered you to walk in obedience in the strength that He is.
You do have the unction from the Holy One, and you really do know all things. Revelation really is your portion; it is meant for you to carry. He brings to your remembrance everything that Jesus has spoken to you in His Word.
Holy Spirit does what Jesus sees the Father do; He takes from Jesus, the Son of God, and reveals to you the heart of the Father.
Great grace is now upon you just like it was upon the Apostles and disciples in the Book of Acts. The same tongues of fire that rested on the heads of the disciples on the Day of Pentecost are resting upon you in the Spirit; enabling you to pray as the Spirit gives you utterance, and according to the will of God.
Just as all the Gifts of the Spirit are given severally according to the Spirit, your ability to pray in the Spirit, is powerfully available to you, every time you are led to pray in the Spirit.
We really can’t take these things lightly, and expect God to take you lightly. You came into His Family at a great price.
As you take these truths lightly, you will be wishing you could hear Him more clearly.
He has given you the choice to obey Him with your whole heart with the full assurance of faith, our hearts and minds sprinkled by the Blood of Jesus from an evil conscience, and our hands washed from the sin of our lives with the washing of water by The Word.
If you take to heart, in obedience, the Word That Is Sent, you will know Him as your shield, and your exceedingly great reward. And your life will bear the fruit that will remain.
The Voice of The LORD is powerful; The Voice of The LORD is full of Majesty!
