Obey God’s Word
Jeremiah 46:2-4 (NASB) – “To Egypt, concerning the army of Pharaoh Neco king of Egypt, which was by the Euphrates River at Carchemish ... 'Line up the shield and buckler ... Harness the horses, and mount the steeds, and take your stand with helmets on! Polish the spears, put on the scale-armour!”
Some think that faith in God is only important for purely spiritual issues. That they can go to church, but then live any way they want. Yet the Bible makes clear that God is interested in every part of our lives. That He can help us in any matter, at any time. In fact, He knows everything about everything. Finance and interpersonal relationships. And even business and military strategy.
Did God only give this kind of specific direction for His people in ancient times? Many might think so. But He is the same today as when His people faced the Egyptian army.
What can you do to get this kind of specific direction? First, be sure to base your life on His Word. That you apply His principles in everything you do. That you always stay sensitive to His Spirit. Then commit your specific needs to Him. Cry out to Him for the wisdom and direction you need.
Trust in Him with your whole heart and don’t lean on your understanding. Be confident that He will direct your path.
• Pray committing your specific situations to God
• Ask for His wisdom.
• Ask the Lord to show you what you should do
• Pray that your faith shall be fixed on Him
In Jesus' name. Amen.
