DO WHAT GOD HAS TOLD YOU (3) Genesis 6:9-22
Noah walked with God (v9 NKJV)
What went through Noah’s mind when God told him to build a boat in the middle of dry land? Nobody had ever done it before. Yet the Bible says, “Noah did everything just as God commanded him” (v22 NIV) How did he do it? Answer: “Noah walked with God.” Walking takes place step by step. The trouble is, we want God to reveal the second step before we take the first step of faith. But until we take the first step, He won’t reveal the next step. We’ve got to be obedient to the measure of revelation. He has given us, if we want more of it. That’s why we get stuck spiritually. We only want to follow Christ to the point of precedence-the place where we have been before – but no farther. We’re afraid of doing what we’ve never done before because it’s unfamiliar territory. So we leave unclaimed the new gifts, new anointing and new dreams God wants to give us. You’ve got to push past the fear of the unknown. You’ve got to do something different. The African impalia can jump ten feet high and thirty feet long, yet it can be contained in a small enclosure with four-foot-high walls. Why? Because it will not jump if it cannot see where it’s going to land. We have the same problem, don’t we? We want a money back-guarantee before we take a leap of faith, but that eliminates faith from the equation. We are called to “walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7) So the word for you today is “Do what God has told you” (TWFT)
