The Light Daily Devotional – Breaking Principles
Focus: Breaking Principles
The word for today
Wherever the principles of God are broken, His promises are delayed. The Lord is ever committed to bringing His words to pass; the blessing of obedience and the punishment of disobedience!
“If they listen and obey God, then they will be blessed with prosperity throughout their lives. All their years will be pleasant. But if they refuse to listen to him, they will perish in battle and die from lack of understanding.” (Job 36:11-12 NLT)
Each time a man breaks the principle of God he has succeeded in breaking His promises over him. The Lord will only take responsibility for your life irrespective of who you are and what you claim to be before men if you are walking in obedience to His principles.
All men who saw how the eyes of Samson were plugged out will say the Lord has abandoned him; whereas Samson on many occasions broke the principle of God and that of his calling. When a man keeps living his life contrary to God’s principles he keeps subjecting the efficacy of the power of God in his life.
The fact that God is merciful does not change the fact that He does not compromise His principles. The Lord does not give up on us when we go astray but will always wait and delay His promises until we get it right with him. Hence, some miracles will not happen in the life of a man until he walks in perfect obedience before God.
Are you walking in obedience?
Prayer: Lord! I receive the grace to walk in obedience to your principles in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: Breaking God’s principles delay God’s promises!
Have a Terrific Thursday!
