The Difference Is Doing What God Says

by Joyce Meyer – posted September 24, 2012

You shall walk after the Lord your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice. —Deuteronomy 13:4

I remember a woman who attended one of my conferences. It was a banquet, and she was sitting with a group of ladies. She came to me and said, “You know, I really learned a lesson this weekend. As I listened to all those ladies talk about their problems, their breakthroughs, and about what God has done for them, I realized that many of them have gone through the same thing I went through.”

Then she said, “Every single thing God has spoken to these ladies, He has spoken to me over the years. Everything He has told them to do, He has also told me to do. The only difference is, they did it, and I didn’t.”

The woman received a great revelation that day. She realized that she was no different than anyone else, that her problems were no worse than many other people’s. What she needed to do was begin doing what God told her to do.

The devil tries to convince us that we are different from everybody else so we will keep asking, “Why is everybody else getting their breakthrough and I’m not?” God delivers people at different times—yours may come soon, or it may take some time. But it is also possible that God has told us the same thing He has told others. The difference may simply be that they have done what He said, and we haven’t.

You are going to spend your time doing something. All God is asking is that what you do is what He says.

Love God Today: Be willing to do everything God asks of you.
