The Reward For Obedience – By David Ibiyeomie

2Tim.3:16-17 – All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

God’s word is designed for your thorough furnishing, distinction, lifting, promotion and decoration so you can be turned into an enviable entity. The scripture is designed to establish an enviable future for you.

Reproofs, corrections and instructions are guides to what you must do. They help you to discover what you must do if you want God to act in your favour. The Bible is therefore God’s instruction book and manual provided for His creatures to maximize their existence. When you respond favorably to its instructions, you become thoroughly furnished.

Matt.4:19 -And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

You cannot make yourself because by strength shall no man prevail. You cannot make yourself because it is not of him that runneth or of him that willeth but of God that showeth mercy. You cannot make yourself because the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong. The Word of God helps you to see that you cannot make it by yourself.

John 15:5b – … for without me ye can do nothing.

To get things done in this kingdom, you must follow God’s instructions so as to escape every frustration in life. God is smarter than you, HE sees brighter than you and HE knows it better than you.

If you want to be made to an enviable entity; if you want to make it to the top in your career pursuit, business and family, you must follow God for HIM to make you. The word of God is not just an information book but an instruction book. It tells you what you must do for what you desire to be delivered to you.

Joshua 1:8 -This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

You cannot have good success if you ignore the instructions in God’s word. The instructions guarantee a prosperous and successful life.

Deut.28:1-And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:

The above scripture shows that your distinction is tied to your delightsome compliance with the instructions contained in God’s word. There is a limit to how far you can go without a practical dedication to the commands of scriptures. When you align yourself to the commands of scriptures, you become a commander in the race of life.

Forty days fasting is not a substitute to obedience. One hundred and twenty days fasting without obedience is personal punishment; it does not secure any favour from God for you. Obedience is the gateway to abundance. Everything that works well works on principles. If you don’t embrace the principles of the scriptures, your future will be in doubt. As long as you are in this kingdom, this is the constitution that guarantees your colorful future.

God bless you
