God, on Your Terms-12

Deuteronomy 5:33 “Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and [that it may be] well with you, and [that] ye may prolong [your] days in the land which ye shall possess.”
Deuteronomy 5:33 “Walk straight down the road GOD commands so that you’ll have a good life and live a long time in the land that you’re about to possess.” (MSG)
…From yesterday…
Matthew 19:27 “Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?”
Peter was wondering what would befall him and his fellow disciples, those of them that were following Christ wholeheartedly and had sacrificed so much for the sake of the kingdom.
Jesus then made this profound statement:
Matthew 19:29 “And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.”
Jesus said when you meet God on His own terms He will daze you! What Jesus was telling the rich folk was to go sell all his possessions, give the proceeds to the poor and then come and follow Him and everything he had given out would be multiplied back to him a hundredfold!
The bible says this man was very wealthy, possessing great possessions; but he missed the chance of becoming the richest man in the world because he could not meet God on His terms!
So how do I deal with God on His terms?
John 2:5 “His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do [it].”
I love that advice from no other than Jesus’ mother. She said “…Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it”.
Don’t debate it; don’t reconsider it; don’t argue it; JUST DO IT!
I have come to discover that even if you say God’s instruction doesn’t make sense, He is still smarter than you!
To be continued…
