Introduction
Every purposeful and fulfilled life is directed by God.Without God’s directive, we are nothing and can achieve nothing. God spoke to Abraham in his father’s house and directed him to leave his kindred to a land He will show him. Abraham obeyed God.
The place of God’s directive is a place of fulfilment. Without Abraham hearkening to God’s directive, he wouldnt have been who he was. Those promises and covenants God made in his life were only activated when he departed to where God showed him.
The directives of God produces result and makes providence for every need and requirements in one’s life. Operating under God’s directive is the sure way to positive results. When He prepares a place for everyman, He gives directives leading to the place. Many times, the obstacles and barriers we encounter in life daily are because we neglect the directives of God. We most oftenly see them as failures in life, attributable to the devil. Sometimes, the directives of God sounds foolish, but is profitable to man. It was God’s directive that made the Israelites triumph against their enemies, with the Levites going before the army of Israel with musical instruments singing and making a joyful noise to the Lord. They won that battle without drawing a sword.
