Previously, we examined that obedience is required as we allow God’s word to determine the seasons of our life. Obedience, love, and faith are godly attributes that are inseparable.
We are told in scripture that “We love Him because He first loved us” – 1 John 4:19 (KJV)
Also, “Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me”. John 14:21a (NIV). Amen.
We also understand that according to His command, faith requires works. James 2:14-26 (NKJV). Amen.
How are these applicable? When God’s word comes to you like it did for Elijah, you receive the word and your decision to comply with the word received is an act of obedience, based on love (His love for you and your love for Him). Then, your ability to implement the word received is an expression of faith. Amen!
So, it suffices to say that, these 3 attributes function together. In order for the next season of your life to find full expression, you need to engage your obedience, love, and faith in God. We can rest assured that our God will speak to us when he has to, however, the question is “What will you do with what He has told you?” Elijah heard and Elijah did. The Widow of Zarephath heard and she did. They expressed their faith and as a result, the door to another season of their lives opened’. Do the same and be blessed. Amen!
