“…he who keeps instruction is in the way of life, but he who refuses correction goes astray…” 

Proverbs 10:17 (NKJV)

Do you want to see the results that the bible talks about in every area of your life? Do you want to walk in the path God wants you to walk in without stumbling in life? If yes, you must make a conscious decision to follow spiritual instructions. Why, you might ask? Because spiritual instructions preserve your life and keep you in the path you should go. A man without instructions is like a blind man and his journey through life would be a rough one. A vivid example of what I am talking about here is the story of a man called Naaman in the scriptures who was a leper. God used him mightily to bring victory to the Syrians but he was afflicted with leprosy. One day, his servant girl recommended that he should go and meet Elisha in Samaria that he would help him. So he yielded to that counsel and went in search of Elisha. When he came in contact with the man of God, he was told to go and wash in the Jordan River seven times.

At first he didn’t want to go because the man of God didn’t come out to meet him, however, his servants advised him to go and do it since it wasn’t a difficult task. So he went and got it done and his health was restored because he followed the instructions of the man of God (Scripture Reference: 2 Kings 5:1-15). Imagine he had not followed the instructions, his health challenge would have remained the way it is. But he was a man who was always willing to follow counsel. First it was his servant girl that advised him and then his servants, and then the man of God. He followed instructions and it brought him restoration in his health. The same way he was restored, you could be restored like that as well in different areas of your life, if only you will learn to follow the instructions given to us by God in His words, and also follow the instructions coming from the pulpit by God’s servants. If you can start giving value to spiritual instructions and following them, your life will not remain the same. So begin today to cultivate the habit of following spiritual instructions, it will help your life a great deal. Praise God!


Spiritual instructions are like road maps, if you miss them, you miss the point!


Glorious father, I thank you for your love and grace, I thank you for teaching me the importance of following spiritual instructions. I yield myself to positive spiritual instructions coming to me in the Name of Jesus. Amen!
