Matthew 1:24-25 When Joseph woke up, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded and took Mary as his wife. But he did not have sexual relations with her until her son was born. And Joseph named him Jesus.
When Joseph woke up from his dream, the Scriptures say he did what the angel told him to do. Boom. Obedience.
When God tells us something, we need to immediately obey it. We don’t obey because we have to, we obey because we get to participate in the supernatural! When we disobey God, we miss out on all that He has planned to accomplish through us! So obey Him! Joseph enjoyed the privilege of being the earthly father of Jesus simply because he obeyed what God said!
What has God already told you to do, that you just haven’t done?
Forgive someone? You are missing out on the supernatural!
Become generous and tithe? You are missing out on the supernatural!
Read your Bible daily? You are missing out on the supernatural!
Maybe the reason why you never experience God is because you just didn’t do the last thing He told you to do. Go and do it! God has supernatural great things for you.
Write down one thing God has told you to do that
you have not done yet. Then tell God you are sorry, and go and do it today.
Don’t wait any longer.
