You can stack up cans and cans of knowledge, but nothing changes until you paint and actually obey the Word of God.
You can come to church for years. Here, there are great teachings about marriage! But you have a marriage that sucks! There’s nothing wrong with the paint (Word of God) but until you apply what you have heard - if all ever you do is get all you can, and stack up all the cans - nothing changes! The colour of the room doesn’t change until you open up a can (your life does not change until you apply the Word of God in your life)!
The Word of God is like a can of paint, its value is in its application. I can stack up cans of orange paint in the basement, but until I take a brush and paint something orange - nothing will happen!
When you discover the will of God for your life, all priorities change - your perspective begin to change. It is imperative that you actually DO. Because a lot of people get stuck in the process of ‘discovery’!
Do not underestimate how the enemy can use the wrong voices from the wrong people in your life. If God can use anyone to influence you in your life, you better believe that the enemy can use others to distract you.
We look up sometimes and expect God’s will to come down from Heaven like a lightning bolt. What if God tries to speak in your life through a person who’s in front of your face, who loves you and loves God? Get the right people around you.
