OBEDIENCE IS BETTER THAN  SACRIFICE                           The Holy Spirit is our great teacher and He teaches us all

OBEDIENCE IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE The Holy Spirit is our great teacher and He teaches us all things as the word says that He guide us into all truth.
It is also written in the word of God that God's ways are higher than our ways and his thoughts higher than our thoughts.
When He teaches us things,it may not be the way we expect and sometimes,we may resist thinking it is not God .

There is a difference between knowing about what God did in the Bible and really knowing God.

Really knowing God means knowing His nature.

You have to know that this is the God who made the prophet Ezekiel to sleep on his left side for more than one whole year each and every night and to eat the same food for more than a year(of course for a purpose).
This is the same God who made a prophet marry a harIot.
This is the same God who caused the wife of Ezekiel to die so that he could be a sign to the children of Israel etc.
If you just know what God did in the bible, you will just stick to what you read and if He does anything else, you will resist and say that it is not God.
On the other hand,if you really know God,you know His nature and you know that He is capable of doing things like that.
If He does what you have not read about,you will still know its Him because you know His nature.
So today, the Holy Spirit has told me to write about the time He was teaching me obedience. Obedience is what will help us go to Heaven for indeed,obedience is better than sacrifice.
The Lord wants to develop that character in each of us. Total obedience.
The Lord teaches all of us in different ways. He may not teach you in the same way that He taught me. Some months after I had just come to the Lord on a certain day, I had declared a one day prayer and fasting. After I had prayed the opening prayer, the Lord told me, "Now don't do anything and just sit. I want you to do only what I tell you and not what you think you should do. Do not read the bible, do not pray. Just sit."

The Lord was trying to teach me obedience. I know it may not sound like the Lord but the bible says that His ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts than our thoughts.
In such a time,it is hard to obey because you feel that naturally since you are fasting,you should pray and read the bible rather than just sit. It was a very hard thing to do and He knew it. That is why He was using that to see whether I would obey or if I would do what I thought was right to do.

Just like King Saul in the bible. He thought that since the Lord had given him victory in battle,it was only right to spare some animals to sacrifice to Him but those were not the Lord's instructions. The Lord's instructions were to destroy all.
It is always better to obey God than to do what we think should be done. Another example is Abraham,after God had given him many promises which would be fulfilled through Isaac told him to give Isaac as a burnt offering.
Abraham could have thought it was the Devil speaking to him but he knew God's voice very well.
He knew that it was His God speaking to him,testing him. He could have decided to reason that since God had made promises through Isaac, it was only right that Isaac,the son of promise should not die and would have wanted to replace him with Ishmael who was not the promised son.
But Abraham knew to obey the voice of the Lord and not to reason.
So for the fasting, I obeyed that day and I later saw the Lord in a vision with a beaming smile. He was very pleased.
The Lord wanted me to share this so that should you ever come into a situation where you need to obey God,you should know that obedience is better than sacrifice.
I just hope that I will not be quoted out of context as some people usually do.
For example, the Lord definitely can't tell you to go and kill someone or to steaI something just for him to see whether you will obey him or not.
If that happens,know definitely that it is the devil. The Lord can never ask you to do something that is sin. #END
