One day the Holy Spirit gave me some instructions. How could I be sure it was the Lord speaking to my heart? His Spirit only and always speaks in line with the Bible. I have been reading the Bible long enough now to recognize the instructions I received were biblical. I also know they were not only for me. How do I know? The Bible from start to finish is clear about all of us needing to follow the instructions the Lord gave me that day.
Be faithful. Be steadfast. Be vigilant. Be humble. Be careful to seek me. Be diligent in hearing and obeying me.
I don’t believe you’re reading this by accident. I believe you need to hear this just like I do. Just like we all do. That when it comes to the Lord Jesus Christ, we need to be humble before the Lord, steadfast in our relationship with Him, vigilant in having Him be our number one love and priority, continually seeking Him and His will for us to include praying, reading the Bible, and listening for His voice, diligent in hearing Him through the Bible and by His Spirit speaking to our hearts in line with the Bible – and obedient!
These instructions should be foundational and fundamental to our our hearts and lives.
So, friend, where do you stand?
Father God, precious Lord, please help each one of us to follow these instructions. Each and every day. Please help all who read this to believe in you as Lord, to follow you as Lord, and may these instructions truly be foundational and fundamental to our hearts and lives now and forever, AMEN!
