“Yet Jehu was not careful to keep the law of the Lord, the God of Israel, with all his heart. He did not turn away from the sins of Jeroboam, which he had caused Israel to commit.” 2 Kings 10:31 NIV
Obedience involves both action and direction!
Jehu could have done greater things for the kingdom of God if he would have kept God’s direction! Read 2 Kings Chapter 9.
God gives each person strengths & abilities that will find their greatest usefulness, but only under God’s control. Without God’s control we may not accomplish what we could with the gifts He has given us.
One way to make sure this happens is to go to God and tell Him you want to be under His control. With God’s presence in your life your natural strengths and abilities will be used to their greatest potential for The GREATEST GOOD! Amen! (Life Application Study Notes)
