When Instructed, Act on it!

God’s Word Says:

7 When the angel who spoke to him had left, Cornelius called two of his servants and a God-fearing soldier from among his own personal attendants.
8 And having rehearsed everything to them, he sent them to Joppa.

My Thoughts:
I believe it would amaze us how often God whispers into our hearts and minds things that He would like for us to do, and we either brush it off, or we feel the importance of discussing it with our ‘trusted advisors’ before we ever act? Friends, I am not advocating that we should never discuss things of importance with our friends, but what I am saying is that such a discussion should be secondary to our acting on God’s instructions. Look at the example of Cornelius in verse 7 …… as the angel departed he called his servants who would carry out the instructions given to him by God through the angel. I would dare say that when we delay for any reason, we are doubting what God may have said to us. When our hearts and minds are in tuned with God, and when we are constantly in touch with Him through prayer and in studying His Word, why would we doubt? We are His chosen people, His bride (the church). If He can’t use us, who will He trust to carry out His work? When we ask our kids to do something, we expect them to act on it without question and without hesitation. God expects no less from us dear friend. Let us pray that we will overcome the temptation of the Evil One to doubt God, and instead be followers of Christ, obedient to His call and His instructions. Only then will we see this world, our world of influence, won for Christ! Won’t you join me in this endeavor of instant obedience today?
