Disobedience Attracts Negative Consequences
Deut. 28:15; Jos. 7:1, 5, 11-12, 24-25
Disobedience to the word of God attracts great eternal consequences as evident in the texts above. Has God spoken anything positive concerning your life? Has He promised to make you great or has He promised you a bright future? How you respond to His word on a daily basis determines if those things will eventually come to pass in your life or not. God can change His mind if we ignore His instructions. How do we feel when we act contrary to the word of God? The Bible says if you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the fruit of the land. The consequence of disobedience does not terminate with the offender but extends to his generation as seen in the case of Achan. We need to repent and forsake every form of disobedience to God to avoid His anger and judgement. Don’t terminate God’s mandate for your life through disobedience.
Point of Emphasis: Fulfilling God’s mandate for your life is practically determined by your level of obedience to His Word.
Prayer Point: Lord, I commit myself to obeying Your Word, help me to be faithful to the end in order not to miss Your purpose for my life.
