You have to do it to get it.
It is just as important to do it.
“Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it” Luke 11:28 New International Version
It is one thing to hear God speak to you, it is just as important to do it.
Think of a child.
The parent informs them it is important to go outside in the cold rain with a coat on.
They hear but do not obey.
What is the end result?
They get sick.
So too it is with God.
When He instructs you to do something it is for your own good.
If you refuse to obey Him you will suffer for it.
When you are suffering why be stupid and crybaby to God: “Why are you doing this to me?”
Now how are you going to hear the word of God if you are sitting in front of the idiot box instead of reading your Bible or listening to sermons online?
“Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.“ Psalm 37:4 New International Version
As you delight in doing Gods will in your life, your desires will turn from whining for God to give to you but for God to change your desires to do for Him. When you do this your life will be filled with joy, purpose and meaning.
Then you will get the blessings God intends for you to get.
“Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” Matthew 6:25–34 New International Version
Prayer: Holy Spirit my mentor, please give me the wisdom to not just hear the word but to do it. I humbly ask in the name of He who obeyed the Fathers will during His earthly ministry Jesus Christ. Amen.
May you be blessed with Gods divine love, peace and joy.
