The Divine Instructions of God Grows us From One Glory to Another Glory - Genesis 22:18

Genesis 22:18  And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

If all of us could get hold of the divine instructions of God, it could lift us to where we belong. The divine instruction of God is the Word of God. In God, we have inheritance because we got born again into God's family. We were grafted into God's family. God has our form in his palms and everything is there for us.

In our christian life, we are in an exam. We have to sit for the exam in order to be graduated to the next level. The best thing to do is not to run away from the exam, which is tantamount to avoiding and running away from challenges, but to go through the exam and face it with determination. If we do not sit for the exam, then we will remain in the same level in life. Face your challenges in faith for it will give you some experience in order to graduate to the next level

God wanted to raise Abraham higher because He has a good plan for him and that is the reason He gave him a test/exam. Abraham had to pass the test in order for him to be graduated. Some of us are always running away from God's tests or instructions, and that is the reason why we are unable to receive the divine blessings of God in our lives.

Judges 11:1  Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty man of valour, and he was the son of an harlot: and Gilead begat Jephthah.

Jephthah has been recorded in the bible to encourage those of us who always sulk about their weaknesses. It was recorded for us to realize that we are  mighty in God if we just believe. Stop crying of your failures, predicaments and rejection and move on because God loves you and He has a good plan for you.

Japhthah' brothers expelled him from his inheritance, but later they came looking for him so that he could become their king. When people reject you, don't dwell on that. Remember that when people reject you God has not rejected you. God might even cause others to reject you so that he may use you when you have stepped our of your comfort zone of being accepted by others. Just do your own research and realize that most of those people who are rejected by families and friends end up becoming mighty men only when they don't reject themselves. So when people reject you don't reject yourself. Learn how to accept yourself and to see yourself as God sees you. Don't' let the devil preach to you.

God has put a dream in you. No circumstance or anybody can even remove that dream from you. Before your were born, before you were conceived in your mother's womb, God had a plan for your life and no matter what vessel you came through, God will lift you up when His due time comes. Just like a pregnant woman cannot hurry to give birth before due time, she has to wait for the due time, the same way it is with us. When the baby wants to come out it does not matter where the woman is, she can give birth at the bus-stop, at the market, on the way etc.When God's due time comes we will give birth to God's dream in us no matter what circumstances we are in.It won't matter whether we don't know who four fathers are, sons of prostitutes, sons of murderers, sons of incest relationships, born out of wedlock, orphans, abandoned at birth, disowned, rejected, abused, physically challenged etc. Let the joy of God be our strength. Our heavenly Father is our real Father.

When Japhthah's time came, his family came for him. With his foot down, he negotiated about his comeback; that he must go back as king over them, to which they agreed.

Abraham passed the exam through divine instructions that God gave him and from that time problems ended. He was abundantly blessed because God saw his maturity to receive his inheritance. He was mature enough to handle the abundant blessings that God was going to entrust to Him.

Galatians 4:1  Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, different nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;

When  the heir behaves like a child, he will not receive the inheritance until he matures. God wants to bless us but sometimes it is not possible because we are not able to handle it. So long as we are behaving like children, we remain as slaves even if we are heirs as Galatians 4:1 explains.Spiritual growth in a christian life is a deliberate thing. You have to personally purpose to grow, just like you personally accepted Jesus as the Lord of your life.

How can we mature if we can't even handle the ABCs of spiritual life. The ABCs of spiritual life is the basics like tithing, offering, prayers, fasting, reading the word, testifying to others,  etc. If  we are still struggling with these basics, then we are still on spiritual milk and we are not in a position to receive God's inheritance that required spiritual maturity. Read Malachi1:8 (  And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the Lord of hosts.). Ask yourself, do you offer the best to God. Do you really search for the best in order to offer to God? Just like Abel searched for the best to offer to God, I want to also search for the best for my God; for that is what will open the blessings of God in our lives. When you are giving to God, remember you are not giving to a man, but to God the Creator of heaven and earth.

When we love God we will do what He tells us, moved by that love we have for him. Not because we are obliged to do it but because we love Him so much that we see it as a privilege and honor to do it. Being kids spiritually deters God's blessings to us because children are all the time crying for minor things, always complaining about minor things even in the ministry. The matters of God are by faith. Every time a divine instruction comes, it comes with a hidden plan/agenda of God. in our lives.
