The Non-commandments

25 Jun

The Non-commandments…

There are times in our daily ministry where people are carrying out a directive which they were told came from me. One day they tell me about it and I say, “I never said that.” They say, “But I’ve been doing things this way because I was told that’s the way you wanted it.”

It turned out someone misunderstood or assumed something, and then told someone else that this was the directive from me. But it never was. These are miscommunications and misdirectives.

It doesn’t only happen with earthly things. There are heavenly miscommandments. People often make mistakes when it comes to hearing Him and then relaying what He said to others.

When this happens, I’ll tell the person, ‘Don’t assume that something is from me, just because someone said it. Come to me about it. Get it direct.” The same way with the Lord.

You have to go direct and check back with the Word, as the Bereans when they heard Paul. You have to hear direct, from God’s Spirit to your heart.

Don’t waste your walk believing misunderstandings, obeying miscommandments, and carrying out misdirectives. For Jesus died… so you could go direct.

Have I not written thirty sayings for you, sayings of counsel and knowledge, teaching you to be honest and to speak the truth, so that you bring back truthful reports  to those you serve? Do not exploit the poor because they are poor and do not crush the needy in court, Proverbs 22:20-22

Today make it a point to go directly to God about any and everything that comes up.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
