Another 10 second rule.
I went to the bank today and as always they give me my money in an envelope, but this time put the money on my dash board instead of in my wallet like I always do. I went to Kohl’s to buy a couple of shirts. When I was leaving I noticed the hair cut place so I decided to get my hair cut because that makes my wife happy. So I go in and get it cut. Somehow we got on the subject about being yelled at. She said she does not like it (I thought who does?) Anyway, I asked to her if she had asked the Lord why that bothers her so much. She just looked at me like I was crazy. I did not press it. So we got finished and I paid and I went to my truck. I was sitting there and I saw the envelope with the money in it so I decided to put the money in my wallet. I do that and start to back up and I hear “go back and give her $50.00” I just set there in the middle of the parking lot just kinda dazed at what I heard. I didn’t want to. I knew the 10 second rule. So I pulled back into my parking spot and went back in and got her. I explained the story about going to the bank and then I just looked at her and pulled out the $50.00 and handed it to her. It messed her up and just looked at me and said “she couldn’t take it”. I said “yes you can” So she received the blessing and then asked me why I would do that. I looked at her and said “the Lord told me to give you this money” She came over and gave me a hug and said “she was going to cry” I said “it is okay to cry.” I then said “have a nice day and left” I don’t know why He had me give her the money and it doesn’t really mater. What matters is I obeyed. My devotion this morning took me to 1 Kings 19 but it took all the way to 1 Kings 22:14 It really stuck out to me this morning but didn’t have a clue about what to write about until this afternoon.
1 Kings 22:14 But Micaiah replied, “As surely as the Lord lives, I will say only what the Lord tells me to say.”NLT Which means do what your Father in Heaven says do and say what your Father Heaven says.
For I do not speak of myself, but from the Father who sent me and commanded me what I should say and what I should speak.
1 Peter 4:11
If any man speaks, let him speak as the oracles [words] of God; if any man ministers, let him do it with the ability that God gives,3 so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
The big question for you today is this……. Did the Lord speak to you and tell you to do something and you paused and talked yourself out of it or did you do it? Believe me I don’t this all the time.
