THE FATHER’S ORDER-2
1Samuel 17:20 “And David rose up early in the morning, and left the sheep with a keeper and took and went as Jesse had commanded him; and he came to the trench, as the host was going forth to the fight, and shouted for the battle.”
On that faithful day, David simply got up and obeyed without questioning the order.
Hear this: The voice of “the Father” is usually wrapped around the voice of “a father” in our lives. The earlier you understand this the better. God still uses men, for men!
1Samuel 3:4 “That the LORD called Samuel: and he answered Here am I.”
1Samuel 3:5 “And he ran unto Eli, and said Here am I; for thou calledst me. And he said I called not; lie down again And he went and lay down”
Samuel kept running to Eli because it sounded alike. When you obey the voice of a divine authority over you, you’re invariably obeying the voice of God.
Note that he didn’t just get up, the Bible says, “And David rose up early in the morning…” The young man treated the voice of his father with urgency. He abandoned all that he had planned out to obey his father’s assignment, little did he know he was not just obeying his father, he was keeping an appointment with destiny!
David thought he was just going to deliver cheese not knowing he was stepping into his purpose. He went out by obeying the voice of Jesse but he returned the king of Israel!
In Luke 5, Peter eventually obeyed the voice of Jesus and he got his biggest catch of fish. I’ve discovered that there is something about obedience that shortens the distance between your present and your desired future.
In Genesis 37:14, Jacob sent Joseph on a similar mission. Joseph also left house that faithful day thinking he was just going to drop a message for his brothers, only to return as the Prime Minister of a foreign land.
Your arrival at that desired future is tied to an instruction wrapped around a voice, locate the voice and promptly obey, Selah!
