One of the things believers today, neglect, is a life of OBEDIENCE, that is, complete obedience to GOD.
GOD would never exalt someone who isn’t obedient to HIM.
Let’s take JESUS as an example, before HE became CHRIST.
Philippians 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
The end-point of OBEDIENCE is EXALTATION.
If you can’t honour GOD through your obedience to HIM, HE has assured you that, HE’LL lightly esteem you.
Such a wonder, that because of JESUS’ obedience, we have HIM as the only access point to the father.
You see GOD would never exalt anyone HE can’t count on. HE exalted JESUS CHRIST because of HIS proved obedience.
GOD would never assume, regardless of HIS might. Even when HE wanted to swear , HE didn’t assume HE was the highest or ALL-POWERFUL, HE had to check and confirm if there was someone greater than HIM. Only after then, did HE swear by HIS name. That’s why, HE encourages us in HIS WORD to test all things, and check if they’re truth.
1 Thessalonians 5:21 but test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good.
There’s a difference between truth and something be true. The law of Moses is TRUE but not TRUTH.
A topic for another day.
Desire the strength to live an obedient life, and watch how GOD would make you a WONDER for HIS KINGDOM.
