A man can establish a great and successful business in his lifetime and in the end, prepare everything for his son to become the heir. But if that son decided not to follow in his father’s footsteps and take over the family business, then there is nothing the father can do. As much as he wants to leave the inheritance with that son, he will not be able to. Because the son is not willing to listen to him and obey him.
The same thing happens to many people in their faith. They have so many great opportunities to take possession of greater things but they miss out because they are not willing to follow and obey God.
You need to say to God, I am willing to follow your footsteps.
God said to Abraham,
“for I have made you a father of many nations.” Genesis 17:5
But He also said to Sarah,
“and she shall be a mother of nations” Genesis 17:16
God is not interested in your gender, you race, the way you look, if you can speak well or not, or anything like that. God is interested in your actions. He wants an action of faith. Obedience.
He called Abraham and Abraham obeyed, and God gave him everything he wanted. If you obey like Abraham obeyed, then God will give you everything you want.
May the God of the Bible Bless You
