Today, I would like to teach how Adjustments are Necessary.
Our Scripture will come from the book of Luke 14:33
“Any of you who does not give up EVERYTHING he has cannot be my disciple.” Many of us want God to speak to us and give us an assignment. However, we are not interested in making major adjustments in our lives. Biblically, that position is impossible. Every time God spoke to people in the Scripture about something He wanted to do through them, major adjustments were required. They had to adjust their lives to God. Once the adjustments were made, God accomplished His purposes through those he called
Adjusting your life to God is the second critical turning point in your knowing and doing the will of God. The first turning point is the crisis of belief: you must believe God is who He says He is and that He will do what He says He will do. Without faith in God, you will make the wrong decisions at this first turning point. Adjusting your life to God is another turning point. If you choose to make the adjustment, you can move on to obedience. If you refuse to make in the adjustment you will miss what God has in store for your life.
Once you have come to believe God, you demonstrate your faith by what you do. Some response is required. This action is one of the major adjustments we will focus on. You cannot stay where you are and go with God. God’s revelation is your invitation to adjust your life to Him.
