INSTANT OBEDIENCE


Matthew 21:2"Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied there and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to Me. …6 The disciples went and did just as Jesus had instructed them,


The time had now come for Jesus to challenge his opponents openly that he was Israel’s Messiah.  He told the disciples, tell them: "If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, 'The Lord has need of them,' and immediately he will send them." Wow, that was powerful! When we obey the Lord, follow His instructions, go to the right place and take the right direction then no one can deny our request. Glory to Jesus! I want to emphasize on this point today and tell you that we fail because we have disobeyed to follow the voice of God.  


After we relocated to Hyderabad and started our ministry in this new city, we had to shift many houses for residence, Children hostel and the Abide School.  Each time it would be a Herculean task of not only physical transportation of goods, but being sensitive and sharp to hear the voice of God and obey.  Many owners would refuse to give their beautiful house when they hear that we are pastors. Closer doors are better than wrong open doors! Caveat! The facility where we now run our Abide School belongs to a local politician, when we approached him, he said, ‘take it and use it madam.’  Until today he has not disturbed us, therefore, when we obey God, things would run smoothly, be it: marriage, business, career whatever may it be.


If you are facing problems in your marriage, do not file for divorce, patiently pray and work on setting right your life, remove disobedience and start obeying God, He will help you come out victoriously. If your facing problems in your work front or business, do not quit or resign……no……no….stay and be a conqueror. Be it mockery, criticism, humiliation or failure, persevere and be an overcomer rather than a coward to escape. Please tell me what to do’ should be our motto and not ‘who are you to tell me what to do!’ Are you listening? The blessings that you get out of ‘ instant obedience’ is immeasurable!


You know what, I did something really crazy after my encounter with Jesus, I have no inhibitions to share it with you guys; we used to buy a particular newspaper those days that was filled with cinema news and personal details of celebrities – I immediately issued notice for the newspapers to be stopped from the ‘next’ day. I am a nut for God!


Obedience is the key for success: God is not going to ignore people who are obedient and who take all efforts to please God despite the inconveniences. Are you listening?
