Do you know that doubting the Word and instructions of The Lord for your life translates into not following The Lord fully.
Each time you disobey His Words and specific Instructions for your life, you have indicated you are not following Him fully. An entire generation of Israel were cut off from getting to their destination because they did not fully follow The Lord.
Surely none of the men who came up from Egypt, from twenty years old and above, shall see the land of which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, because they have not wholly followed Me,
Do you know what The Lord said about King Saul:
1 Samuel 15:11
“I greatly regret that I have set up Saul as king, for he has turned back
from following Me, and has not performed My commandments.”
Is this not exactly the same way The Lord is feeling over some of His children whom He has promoted and lifted up and blessed financially and materially? They got to the positions without fulfilling the purpose of their being there. They lost focus and derailed in their plans. He had given them good jobs after graduation so that they might influence the top management to do the right thing, but they have been influenced to their side instead. Because they have not full followed The Lord, and performed all His commandment for putting them there, they would definitely be replaced with a David who would perform all that are in the heart of God.
Are you fully following The Lord concerning your ministry? Or you are doing things according to the dictate of your personal reasoning. Are you doing exactly what He asked you to do with the movies you did? For instance, did He tell you to go to the campuses or villages or churches with the new movie you just made or He directed you to release it immediately?.
Did He tell you to give Him the First Fruit of the ministry and you have spent it for your self? Did He tell you to increase your tithes and you have not done so? What are the things He told you to do and you have not done? They are all indications of either FOLLOWING HIM or not.
Finally, keep this verse of the scripture in your heart:
Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world.
He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
When you learn to FOLLOW The Lord fully with all your heart, you will not walk in darkness. The light of The Lord will flood your path. You will not be walking in your understanding, but in the wisdom of God. Do you know that when you learn to follow His instructions fully with all your heart, something else follows you also?
“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.”
When you follow The Lord, you attract GOODNESS and MERCY all the days of your life.
