As you’ve prayed, has God told you anything He wants you to do? Have you gotten impressions of something you feel you need to do? Maybe someone you feel you should go see? Well, I sure have. I’ve begun to write these things down and describe them as, “God’s to-do list”. Things He wants me to do.
Now, I’m also praying for God to do some things for me. And I know He’s got some wonderful things planned so why haven’t they come to pass? This is how God described it to me: It’s like a teenager who asks his father, “Can I have the car Dad?” And the dad replys, “Have you cleaned your room yet, like I asked? You can’t have the car until you clean your room.”
God won’t do what He’s got planned for me until I do my part and do what He’s already asked me to do. It’s an obedience thing. “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. James 1:22“. Yes, I want to be a good kid and do what my Father asks and, I know, He’ll be real good to me when I do. What has God asked you to do?
