Obedience to do the will of the Father is True Humility

The kingdom of God is all about power & authority, the measure we receive depends on our level of obedience to His command. 

John 15:14-15:-

“You are my friends if you do what I COMMAND. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”

God will give us knowledge of revelations if we are His friends; it shall be things that we can see clearly into the spiritual realm with God’s immeasurable power and authority resting upon us for our obedience.

In Matthew 11:28 Jesus said, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." It means that the Lord will rest His glorious light upon us  making us flames of fire and His glory works through us while we rest in Him.

Jesus further added in Matthew 11:29, “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Jesus meant is for us to take His yoke of humility to do the will of the Father. Obedience is true humility and is a mark of Sonship.

When God told Elijah to anoint Elisha to succeed him as prophet, Elijah obeyed and threw his cloak around Elisha. Elisha did not set conditions. He just obeyed and said that he wanted to kiss his father and mother goodbye. Elijah replied in one sentence, “Go back,” Elijah replied. “What have I done to you?”

1 Kings 19:21

So Elisha left him and went back. He took his yoke of oxen and slaughtered them. He burned the plowing equipment to cook the meat and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he set out to follow Elijah and became his servant.

It was not easy for Elisha to obey and left his business and family behind to follow Elijah but he knew the immeasurable power & authority that Elijah had, so were the company of 50 prophets following behind both Elijah & Elisha (2 Kings 2:5). They all kept close to Elijah before he was taken home, hoping to catch Elijah’s mantle of immeasurable power and authority. Elijah’s successor Elisha caught the double portion of the Spirit of Elijah.

Reinhard Bonnke had a high calling. He knew the treasure of the immeasurable power and authority when God sent him to Africa. Without hesitance, he resigned from his calling as an ordinary missionary to embark on his high calling. If he had set conditions or to delay accepting the calling, God will raise another.

Listen to his testimony:-

May this sharing of truth enrich your spiritual walk with God. 

God bless!
