You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“Deliver thyself, O Zion, ye that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon. For thus saith the Lord of hosts: After the glory hath He sent me unto the nations which despoiled you, for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of His eye.” – Zechariah 2:7-8

Abraham was staying with his family people and one day the Lord said to him to leave his country, his family and his father’s house to the land which God has planned for him. Then God said to him that He will bless him and make his name great. Genesis 12:4 beautifully says, “So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him...”

Abraham obeyed to God’s word in faith and he left his relatives and went to the place where God asked him to go. As God promised Abraham, He made him great. If we read the further chapters of Bible, at certain moments we can see that the Lord addressed himself as Lord of Abraham. The Lord was pleased with Abraham because he obeyed God.

There were times in our life when we fail to receive any blessings at all, we get depressed. We blame God at times and say He is not hearing our prayers and tears. But we fail to analyze whether we are in the right place where God wants us to be. We might be living in a place from where God wants us to move and we might be living in sin which God hates.

Today God wants us to do a self check in His presence. We have to understand and know for sure whether we are exactly in the place where God wants us to be. If you have to receive God’s blessing you have to be in God’s will.

I came across a person who once worked in a MNC company. He was a well experienced person and He always wanted to do God’s will in his life. One fine day he got a call from his friend asking him to join as a CEO of another MNC company and at the same time he got an offer to join as a chief engineer in another organisation. He knew that being a CEO of an MNC company will make his life settled and he can earn more than the other offer he got. So he decided to join as CEO. But the day before his joining date, God interfered and ask him to leave that offer.

He obeyed and joined as chief engineer with a less salary compared to what he might have got being a CEO. But yet today he was blessed in his professional life and also he is doing God’s ministry as he could able to find free time in this job. He obeyed God and so God blessed him and He is blessing other people through him.

My dear young friends, come out of the place which God asks you to come out. Leave the sins which God asks you to leave. Obey God in everything. Deliver yourself from all things that God dislikes. He will make your name great and you will be blessed by God in a glorious way.
