Daily Devotional: REJECT BACKWARDNESS.
Memorise: But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.
Read: Jeremiah 7:23-24
God wants you to go well and be duly satisfy in destiny. His plans are greater than your thoughts and imaginations but the fulfillment thereof comes with absolute obedience to His word. There can’t be a better you without the help of God therefore, to keep moving forward and to make tangible progress in life and ministry, you must be ready to obey the Lord without wavering. Obedience to God will set you on higher grounds but every act of disobedience is a tool of backward moves into your previous pains. May you not drift back into errors and perdition in Jesus’ mighty name.
But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward. Jeremiah 7:24 KJV
The resources you need to scale great heights in destiny can only be given by God. Deut.8:18. Therefore reposition your heart to His side and be ready to do his will. Your desires, especially your ambition, no matter how good will remain limited. You need the Lord’s portion to emerge a success that He has ordained you. Keep disobedience far away from your life, get married to God and His word. Be and addicted student of His word and profess them with faith and thanksgiving through prayers. If you will follow the Lord in absolute obedience, you will never know backwardness again in Jesus’ name.
Reflections: Are you following the Lord or simply your heart. God is greater than your heart. Accept his grace for obedience and be free from stagnation and failures.
