God: very specific in directions; confirms His directions; backs up His word.
Jeremiah 1: 8, 9 (KJV) “Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord. Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth”.
I am about to ask a question of such a serious and contemplative nature that I’m not sure if you are able to respond at this moment; but have you been diligent in obeying when the Spirit of God have asked you to do something or rather when He has given you a task to perform?
You may know and then again you may not be aware that you do not have to be a prophet calling fire down from heaven for God to use you to carry out His will, but sometimes when the instructions comes, many people live in fear and this creates disobedience to the will of God and his direction.
Oh no! Many of us second guess ourselves and the instructions we are given and someone live just might depend upon it and in addition you are then operating in the spirit of disobedience and or rebellion against God. This is serious stuff as I told you; but look at the Prophet Jeremiah, who received the call on God upon His life, but when the calling came, God reassured Him that there was not a need to fear anything or anyone who he was sent to and most of all don’t look at the rage on their faces either because its expression will not manifest in any hurt to you for I the Lord your God will be with you.
God further encourages His man-servant and applied His hand to his mouth to reinforce that what comes forth from his mouth is God ordained and spoken, so just obey, do and open your mouth. This is some powerful stuff, but if God says it, then it must be so; but somehow, I am writing this and I am thinking that someone out there is being directed to GO by God and is hesitating, doubting themselves.
Hey apart from the dangers I listed above, who would you rather listen to; yourself, your mind, or God?
