EVERYDAY LIFE WITH JESUS CHRIST

TOPIC : DIVINE DIRECTION. PART 3
(Inspirational message that will change your life complete).
Genesis 12:1: “Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:”
Looking at the life of Abram, he was a barren man. His life was attached to mockery and that’s why he was called ‘Abram’. His life was filled with bitterness and barrenness – seemed as if nothing good can come out of his life.
Who is he that is saying that nothing good can come out of your life? Something good will come out from my life. I will change the story of my family – I am born to be a story changer.
And it seemed as if there is no one with destiny in the family of Abraham.
Many of them that God had chosen died unfulfilled. They didn’t meet up with the terms and conditions of God.
And here is a man. Humanly speaking, Abram ought not to be chosen because of how people belittle him, trampled on him, he does have any children and a lot of insults. But the Lord was seeing what no man can see. When God wants to choose a man, He first look at the future – “What benefit can I get from him? Is he going to disappoint me?”
God told a brother, “Many had disappointed me. Don’t disappoint me.” You will not disappoint God.
How do you normally feel when you so much trust someone and probably take him as your family member but you come to discover that he is an unfriendly friend, how will you feel?
That you have told your secrets to the enemy of your life; that you have invested in the enemy of your life? You will feel so bad. Some of us, it have reach an extent that we cannot trust anyone again. But now, think about how terrible it is to fail God.
The Bible says that God created man in His own image. As we have feelings, God do have feelings. When His children do what they ought not to do, he feels it – “Why would you do that?” None of us will fail God in Jesus name.
So this man Abram that men thought nothing good can come out of his life. They thought he would die as a barren man. It’s the same man that God say in Genesis 12:2 “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:”
This is a man hidden in one village.
Men that follow direction of God are always a voice in their generation.
Genesis 12:3; “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
What do we get from that?
The conclusion of men on your life does not mean that that is the conclusion of God on your life.
When men concluded that nothing good can come out from the life of Abram. The Lord appeared in the scene and said, “No! That is a lie. … I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:”
Stop listening to men! Stop concluding at the conclusions of men.
“Why are you doing this? Why do you remain in this level?” – “because men say; my family say; my uncle say” NO, don’t say that. Change your thinking faculty.
Because you have failed one time, does not mean you will continue to fail. Men concluded on the matters of Abram; “You are a barren man.” But God said, “That’s a lie. You are a fruitful man.”
Whose report do you believe?
But you must understand something – If you will not want the conclusion of men on your life to come to pass, stay connected to God to get direction for your life.
There are some situations whereby people will say, “We said it. That is what is going to happen to him. We said it. That he cannot prosper – he will keep on failing. We have said it before and it seemed as if our mouth smells. You can now see.”
The reason why men can say that is because that particular person fails to get connected to God to get direction. Get direction!
