• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outlet and safe community to be apart of.

Do What God Has Told You (2)

‘By faith Noah… built an ark.’ Hebrews 11:7 NIV

Noah built the ark because God commanded it. It’s what he was called to do in life. Sawing planks and hammering nails for him was an act of obedience. And when everything was said and done, it was the longest act of obedience recorded in Scripture. From start to finish, Noah’s one act of obedience took tens of thousands of days! And with each daily act of obedience, he glorified God. No matter what tool you use in your trade—a hammer, a keyboard, a mop, a football, a spreadsheet, a microphone, an espresso machine—using it is an act of obedience. It’s the mechanism whereby you worship God. It’s the way you do what you’re supposed to do.

The Bible says, ‘Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.’ (Colossians 3:17 NIV) Stop putting yourself down and thinking what you do is not important.

Remember the old proverb, ‘For want of a nail’? It goes like this: ‘For want of a nail the shoe was lost. For want of a shoe the horse was lost. For want of a horse the rider was lost. For want of a rider the message was lost. For want of a message the battle was lost. For want of a battle the kingdom was lost. And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.’ In God’s eyes, small acts of obedience are big things. When you joyfully do little things like they are big things, then God will do big things like they are little things. That’s how His Kingdom advances. So the word for you today is: do what God has told you.

It is my earnest desire to be obedience to the word of God and what He is telling me to do. Sometime it gets pretty hard and I don't always understand His ways, but I want to please Him in the act of my obedience.
