“Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard: and I have come because of your words.” – Daniel 10:12

Have you ever prayed for an answer to a situation, then found yourself still waiting on the Lord? Here’s what’s real: the Lord have already answered, but your answer is held up. I tell you, my friend, do not give up! Your breakthrough is coming!

Declaration: I will not give up on the Lord! My prayers have reached the ears of the Lord and His answers are on their way.

Ridiculous Requests

Do you ever ask God to do ridiculous things for you? I know I do. But, has God ever asked you to do something you thought was ridiculous for Him?

Friends, I want to encourage you when you hear God speak, move! Whether you have all the answers or not, whether you know the next move or not, whether it seems crazy ridiculous or not–just get to steppin’!

There may be times God just tells you, “Go there,” and you go there, and then say, “I don’t know what I’m really doing here, Lord.” Sometimes He may say, “I just needed you to go there.” Sometimes it is a matter of obedience – are you listening for the still quiet of His voice and are you responding out of obedience? Sometimes, you may feel ridiculous.

Regardless, you heard the Voice and took the step.

Other times, God Almighty say, “go there,” and once you get there, He will tell you exactly why you are there and what to do. It may be something ridiculous like, “Yeah, I need you to drive around the city and pour oil all over it.”

Pastor Gene Izaguirre, who is a crazy man, once got tired of driving around Matamoros pouring oil all over the place, so he got himself an airplane. He drilled a hole in the bottom, took about 2000 gallons of oil, and just sprayed it all over the city of Matamoros praying against the cartel. I don’t know about you, but that seems a little cray cray. I can tell you, God Almighty loves that kind of crazy.

Listen, obey, prosper – regardless of how ridiculous it may seem. Can you touch the Father’s heart by obeying even in the ridiculous? Once you do, it’s a game-changer!

“But this is what I commanded them, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you will walk in all the way which I command you, that it may be well with you.’” – Jeremiah 7:23
