Lately, my daughter has been questioning a lot of what I instruct her to do. For example, it could be something as simple as getting her to take shower or even getting her to get dressed, then she starts questioning me about the task because it does not make sense to her as to why or what or even when I am asking.
The Holy Spirit showed me this is how many of us treat God. When He asks us to do something, we come up with many reasons why we can't or won't do what we are being called to do. This is also shown in Luke 9:59-62 KJV when Jesus asked two men to follow him.
The Bible shows us in Matthew 4:18-20 KJV when Jesus called Peter and Andrew, "And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed him." The word to focus in on is straightway which means right away or immediately as defined by Merriam Webster's dictionary. This is to be our example when it comes to following God's call in our lives.
So, has God instructed you to do something?
If so, how will you respond?
