- While I cook pretty regularly, I really ENJOY non-cook nights.
- When I do take-out, I usually like to go into the establishment and check my order prior to leaving.
- On this occasion, I did not heed the direct voice of God.
- That disobedience brought on consequences and a reminder.
KJV Scripture references
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
I Corinthians 6:12
All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.
Oh BCU Fam, we really waste time and when we lean to our own understanding. More importantly, we may miss opportunities in the kairos (God’s perfect timing) time zone that may never come our way again. Even in God’s mercy and kindness, sometimes, we don’t get do-overs (ask Esau). So, with God’s help, let’s ask the Lord what to do, and obey His voice straightaway. Amen? Amen!
