DO ONLY WHAT I TELL YOU



"Success is tied into Doing" yes, doing only that which the master desires. 

There's joy in knowing what to do and doing it. Though, it may fail and it may not. There can be proven success or assurance of success when colleagues or older men gives advice on what to do, there can be possibility of wonderful outcomes, yet there maybe failure.

Meanwhile, there's a source I believe and I have gotten acquainted with over the years whose advice and instruction has never failed and will never fail. That source is God: through His Word; and the leading of His Spirit.

I was in a meeting with some colleagues and a friend asked "if God should give a man an assignment and there's evidence that there's bound to be hazard difficulties, rejections along the way, what should one do?" Every response clearly stated that; "Just do What He asked you to do" Why? This is because; He sees and knows the end from the beginning and He will never lead/give His children an assignment that He Himself will never accomplish. Philippines 2:13 "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for [His] good pleasure". 

Read this: BLESSEDNESS OF BEING A CHILD OF GOD: A review of six different blessings.

The Christian life consist in strict adherence to the leading and the dictates of God; many of  which can be seen from in His Word from Genesis to Revelation.

The desires to please ourselves and colleagues: a proven way of showing ourselves as the brain/wisdom behind every success,; thereby according unto ourselves the accolade and praise of men, rather than in everything glorifying God, has in many ways deter us from seeking and hearing from God many of what He's saying per time.

Knowing what God is saying per time in every situation has never been so difficult. In that as we study the Word, the Holy Spirit teaches us. But, because we are often occupied with many things, we got hindered from getting His mandates for us per time. 

NOTE: "There is always a Word for Every Situation in every Season and time".

David is a vivid imagery of a man who understands the Efficacy of what God is saying per time, or should I say in addition the benefits of putting God first in every situation.
"Bring the ephod": suggests that David preferred whatever God is saying at any situation above the wisdom of men.

1 Samuel 30:7-8 Then David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech's son, "Please bring the ephod here to me." And Abiathar brought the ephod to David. So David inquired of the LORD, saying, "Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?" And He answered him, "Pursue, for you shall surely overtake [them] and without fail recover [all.]"

"Has any of the gods of the nations delivered his people out of the hands of the king of Assyrians"  Isaiah 36:18 says Rabshakeh, the Assyrians envoy to Hezekiah.

 However, victory is not in what man will say, it is rather in what God will say and ask us to do per time.
Verse 21 of Isaiah 36 says: "But they held their peace and answered him not a Word: for the king's commandment was, saying answer him not." Instead, chapter 37:1 says "Hezekiah rented his clothe... and went to the house of the Lord.
He recognized the supremacy of God. He knew there must be a word from God for the situation ofnground. He chose not to respond to the vain babbling of the Assyrian envoy.

LET US LEARN FROM SAUL AND MOSES
King Saul's kingdom was torn because he simply chose to do what pleases him and not what God desires.

God's instruction to Saul was to completely destroy the Amalekites. 
1 Samuel 15:3 Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.'"
He did otherwise:
1 Samuel 15:27-29 And as Samuel turned around to go away, [Saul] seized the edge of his robe, and it tore. So Samuel said to him, "The LORD has torn the kingdom of Israel from you today, and has given it to a neighbor of yours, [who is] better than you. And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor relent. For He [is] not a man, that He should relent."

MOSES ALSO THOUGHT US A LESSON
Numbers 20: 8-11
How well Moses would have entered the promise land. Nothing else would have stopped him. He knows the Lord and he keep his ways, he was a righteous man, and a spokeman from God to His people.
God told him to speak to the rock. But he out of anger and frustration beats the rock.
Speak to the Rock and Beating the Rock are two different things. Because of this little act of disobedience he got hindered from entering the land of promise.

NB: An act of disobedience, irrespective of how little it may be can at any point in time cost one of destiny fulfillment. 

The best we can do at any point in time, irrespective of how great the challenge or problem is, is to seek the Lord, put Him first, hear what He will say and subsequently follow His instructions to the letter. To Him alone belongs the Victory.

Praise God.
