The Power of Following An Instruction

Obedience to an Instruction is the Prevention of Pain, the Creation of Pleasure, the Birthing of Favour and the Generation of Longevity.

If you cannot be instructed, you cannot be directed. Instruction prevents frustration, fatigue and failure in life and destiny. Perhaps you know someone who failed a test, not because of ignorance but because they failed to follow the correct instructions of the examination?

 

The book of Proverbs says wisdom cries out aloud and she raises her voice (Proverbs 1:20). People who cry or raise their voice are not happy.

Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, and forsake not your mother’s teaching, — Proverbs 1:8

 

Wisdom is not happy about the son or daughter who ignores her instruction or teaching.

 

Obedience to an instruction is the prevention of pain, the creation of pleasure, the birthing of favour and the generation of longevity.

 

Instruction is the bridge to the life you desire to have. Teaching is the steps you take to cross the bridge.

Solomon said to his son, hear your father’s teaching and forsake not your mothers teaching.

Both parents figures rear healthy children. An instructing father and a teaching mother are God’s compulsory gifts to your destiny.

 

What are the differences between instructing and teaching?

  • When I am instructing you, I am teaching you without an explanation. (The secret to receiving wisdom through instructions is trust and humility.)
  • When I am teaching you, I am instructing you with an explanation. Teaching is explaining how something is done. While instructing is telling you to do something.
  • An instruction provides foresight (direction).
  • A teaching provides insight.

 

Remember this:

An instructing father and a teaching mother are God’s compulsory gifts to your destiny.

 

Assignment:

Are you listening and obey the instructions and teachings of the wise?

What was the last instruction God gave you – have you followed through on it?

 

Prayer Confession:

Father, I will walk in obedience to your instruction and teaching in my life.

Obedience to an instruction is the prevention of pain, the creation of pleasure, the birthing of favour and the generation of longevity.
