Isaiah 11:3 NLT: He will delight in obeying the Lord. He will not judge by appearance nor make a decision based on hearsay.
Do you take delight in obeying the Lord? This question is in dare need of honest answers because it is becoming obvious that people no longer delight in obeying the Lord. They want it their way otherwise they simply ignore it and say that God is a merciful God and will understand. Then others will obey out of fear of the fire of hell. They will simply say that they do not want to go to hell and as a result they will have to obey.
God does not want His children to obey Him out of fear but love. Compelling us to obey His commands is not His way. He wants us to take delight in obeying His command. Doing that, demonstrates that we truly love Him like His son Jesus who love Him and take delight in doing His work. Also, when you obey Him out of love for Him, you will never get tired of doing what He wants from you.
In addition, many people have taken the path of judging by appearance and making decisions by hearsay. This is a demonic trend that is ruining alot of relationships, ministry and marriages. Once your matter is out on the social media or blog, you will be judged and condemned immediately without any form of caution or thought about the implications of such actions. Jesus is not judging by appearance. He knows the heart of every man. Learn from Him and ask Him to guide you in your decision making. Shalom.
Declare to yourself loud: I delight myself in obeying the Lord.
Heavenly father, help me to stay true to your commands and never judge by appearance or hearsay. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
