The man who reads this Book and listens to it being read and obeys what it says will be happy. For all these things will happen soon. Revelation 1:3
There are always directions to everything in life. In our jobs, we’re given duties to perform prior to getting a paycheck. In purchasing a home, you’re expected to put down 20% before the bank will finance the rest.
God has directions as well, but we won’t know them if we don’t read His direction manual. We want all the good stuff, all the blessings, the promises fulfilled, but we seem to have issue with following directions.
Here are just a few directions to think on throughout the day:
- Love one another. “I give you a new Law. You are to love each other. You must love each other as I have loved you. If you love each other, all men will know you are My followers.” John 13:34-35
- Give. “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” Luke 6:38
Love, because God is love. Give, because that’s how His Kingdom works. Read His Word, because in it contains directions.
If things aren’t going right in your life, get in a habit of reading His Word everyday. It will change you into the man or woman God designed you to be. It doesn’t mean everything will be roses and sunshine on the outside, but on the inside, your perspective will change. You will see God’s direction in every twist and turn, every storm, every loss, every pain.
If you want to know God and get direction for your life, read the directions.
