(Don’t Neglect The Details When It Comes To God’s Instructions);
TO THE BIBLE Proverbs 4:13
“Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; keep her, for she is your life.”
As you walk with the Lord and carry out that which He instructs you to do, you must painstakingly pay attention to spiritual details because of their importance. Moses, for example, learned this the hard way. In Numbers 20:8, God instructed him, “Take the rod…Speak to the rock before their eyes, and it will yield its water; thus you shall bring water for them out of the rock….” Moses didn’t know how important it was when God told him to talk to the rock.
The instruction to speak to the rock was of spiritual significance which he ignored and struck the rock instead. It was the mistake of his life. The instruction seemed so light to Moses, but the rest of his ministry was hinged on it; he didn’t know it. Moses, as a result, wouldn’t be the one to lead the children of Israel to the Promised Land because of this error.
In serving the Lord, it’s very important that you always listen to the details of His instructions, however insignificant they might sound. God’s Word is God’s instruction. Live your life, not according to man’s instructions, information or opinions, but according to the Word. God leads you in the path of greatness by giving you clear and specific instructions to follow. It’s not about what somebody advises or instructs you to do; the question is, “What is God’s instruction in His Word about it?” This is why I love the Bible because it’s God’s instruction manual for a glorious life.
Do you want to have an excellent life, full of glory and success? There’s a way: follow God’s Word; don’t neglect the details in His instructions. Always remember that His wisdom is greater than man’s wisdom; therefore, be sensitive to the guidance He gives you through the Word, and by the Holy Spirit, and you’ll have a beautiful and exceptional life, and gloriously fulfill His calling and destiny for your life.
Hear instruction and be wise,
And do not disdain it.
Apply your heart to instruction,
And your ears to words of knowledge.
Dear Father, I thank you for your Word, which has in it the ability to cause me to do what it says and be all that you want me to be. My heart is attuned to your instruction and I’m guided to attend to even the minutest detail of your Word, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
