Half-Hearted Obedience

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Joshua 16:10

They did not dislodge the Canaanites living in Gezer; to this day the Canaanites live among the people of Ephraim but are required to do forced labor.

O-bservation:

Ephraim was the brother of Manasseh. The two brothers were Joseph’s sons, and when it came to parceling out the land the twelve tribes of Israel had conquered, the Children of Manasseh were unwilling or unable to drive the Canaanites out completely. Yes, they were required to do forced labor, but the peace God desired for this tribe never happened because of “Half-Hearted Obedience.”

A-pplication:

God commanded the Tribe of Manasseh to drive out or exterminate the people of Canaan from their land. When God gives us a command, He always promises to help us make it happen. But first, we must obey completely. When we do, the impossible part gets accomplished by the Lord. When the Lord doesn’t accomplish it, it is certain our obedience wasn’t complete. I believe this is the case in modern Christian circles. Everybody wants to be together until someone doesn’t, and they begin to show their true colors. Manasseh never realized their complete potential because they didn’t obey when they first possessed the land. If you want to see the Lord do the impossible, do away with “Half-Hearted Obedience!”

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

It is my desire this AM to give You complete and total obedience every time you speak to me. I know there will be times I’ve failed you, and I probably will in the future. However, Lord, I want more than anything to be the person who runs away from “Half-Hearted Obedience.” Help me, Jesus. Amen
