“Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life.”
The apostles had a command from God. The reason they took action is because they’d been told to do so. All true obedience is informed obedience. You must hear from God in order to obey God. Don’t do things just because you want to do them and think you’re living the Christian life. What God doesn’t initiate, God doesn’t appreciate. God is going to tell you what to do. And God has never promised to bless any endeavor that He has not commanded.
• How can we know what God wants us to do?
• How is regular time spent in God’s Word and in prayer connected to knowing what He wants us to do?
Take inventory. Consider the things you are doing because you feel God clearly called you to do them as well as those things you are doing according to your own desires. Seek to submit every area of your life to Him.
