And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
Luke 17:14 (KJV)
There would never be a time in our lives where it is okay for us to disobey God. Obedience to God for the believer should not be something we decide to do sometimes. It should be a daily commitment, whether we feel like it or not.
From the story of the lepers, their simple decision to trust and obey God’s instruction in the face of conflicting situations is a decision worthy of emulation. First, as lepers they were considered as outcast, then secondly they were ceremonially uncleaned. So the instructions to go show themselves to the priests, was more like asking them to do the unthinkable. However, because the instruction was coming from the Creator of all the living and the Lord of the temple, they decided as leprous as they were to start moving towards the temple in obedience to God, and the scriptures said as they went, they were cleansed.
Beloved, there are miracles that God has for us that are tied to our obedience. The answers would not come as we hear the instructions, the answers will come in our line of obedience. Step out of your comfort and limiting situation today and start moving in the direction God is asking you to go, ready or not go show yourself at the command of the master.
My declaration and confession: Father today I declare that regardless of my situation I will move in the direction of your instructions.
Ignite Thought: Miracles happen whenever we hear and obey the instructions of our Master.
