Luke 6:46-49 “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say? Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.”
Many Christians are asking why am I not being blessed or why are my prayers not answered? The Bible instructs you in many scriptures that if you are a doer and not just a hearer of the Word you will be Blessed. If you hear The Word and not a doer you will not be blessed. The WORD OF God is a Personal instruction Guide with God Almighty Speaking directly to you. If you don’t follow and do His Word you are not living by Faith in God Almighty’s Living Word or following His Instructions. If you are not a doer of His Living Divine Word you can never hope that your prayers be answered or be Blessed. If you follow The Word of God and be a doer and not a hearer only you will be Blessed in all you do. God’s Word is His Living Will for your life.
Life is full of owners manuals, owners instructions manual and directions in everything you do. If you don’t do them everything you start will fail! Jesus can only confirm The Word of God in your life. Jesus can not confirm your good intentions or intellect. You can live a disappointed life and not be a doer of The Word and wonder why my life is not as blessed as other Christians. Or you can be a Doer of God’s Word and Inherit all of The Promises of The Word of God.
James 1:5-8 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
James 1:22-25 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.
Matthew 7:21-23 Not everyone who says to Me,’Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
Luke 8:21 But He answered and said to them, “My mother and My brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it.”
