Luke 2:8 “And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field keeping watch over their flock by night.”
Luke 2:9 “And, lo the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.”
The shepherds were busy watching their flocks by night when the angel of the Lord came to them. These were very busy individuals who operates for twenty four hours.
In spite of their busy schedule, the angel interrupted them, gave them the message and immediately they traveled to where baby Jesus was born.
Luke 2:15 “And it came to pass as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass which the Lord hath made known unto us.”
Luke 2:16 “And they came with haste and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.”
The shepherds left all they were doing and went after the Saviour! Heaven interrupted their schedule and they responded accordingly. They could have postponed the visit because of their sheep but they chose the divine call over their earthly occupation.
Friend, can God interrupt you? Does the instructions of God take precedence in your life? God doesn’t stave us of instructions but most times we starve Him of our obedience. Many times the instructions of God are very inconveniencing but they are designed to keep us from arms way.
Don’t be too busy with your own agenda that the instructions of God becomes secondary in your life. Instructions saves us from destruction. Sometimes when the Lord says, “Son, fast today”, it might be because there is a food poisoning incidence you need to be delivered from.
Sensitivity is key to walking with the Holy Ghost, and the more yielded you are to him, the more divine secrets he will reveal to you. God is more concerned about our safety, success and victories than our convenience.
Each time there is a prompting in your spirit, obey sharply. The shepherds were privilege to meet baby Jesus before all others because they moved at the prompting of heaven.
Your next miracle is just an instruction away, be sensitive!
Love you BiG
