DON’T MISS GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS BECAUSE THEY ARE SIMPLE | John 2: 8 | My Jesus Today – Lesson 29 | David Adeniji
When the instruction looks complex, it’s probably not God. His commandments aren’t grievous. God leads through the scriptures, but there’s a spirit behind every written line, and so there are personal instructions that may not even be written exactly in the Bible as the holy spirit dictates them to you. But they always agree with the scriptures. They are spoken. I had once said that God’s word (the Bible) is the written manual, while God’s spirit is the spoken manual.
Please look again at the three instructions that led to the water-to-wine miracle in John 2, a miracle of abundant supernatural provision.
1. Fill the waterpots with water – vs 7
2. Draw out the water – vs 8a
3. And present it to the Governor – vs 8b
The miracle happened in the hands of the servants on their way to deliver that ‘water’ to the Governor. This is what happens when ordinary people follow the instructions of an extraordinary God. When the instructions look complex, then it’s probably not God.
“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous” 1 John 5:3
Now, compare this with three similar instructions that led to the same kind of supernatural abundant provision in John chapter 6
1. Where can we buy bread? John 6:5 (They told him)
2. Tell them to sit down (They did that) – John 6:10
3. Gather up the remaining fragments so that nothing is lost (They obeyed) – John 6:12
Just 3 instructions. 3 simple, very simple instructions. We miss God when we’re searching for mysteries, whereas, he is the mystery. Our blind obedience to the seemingly ridiculous instructions, is the mystery. Notice, the miracle here also happened in the hands of the disciples in verse 11, while they shared the bread. God is simple. Please don’t complicate Him. And don’t complicate the gospel.
For me, I look for simple preachers, with simple messages, and obey the simple instructions. God will not send you to the 10th floor, when he hasn’t prepared you for the ground floor. In other words. He takes you the way you are, gives simple instructions and refuses to proceed to another level with you until you obey the first instruction. Lord, We wait for your instructions today. We. Know they will be simple, we will not miss them because of their simplicity. We receive the grace to be simple and to obey, so we can unlock our miracles in Jesus Name.
