Can God tell you to do something and sometime later tell you to do something else? Yes. Can you do something that God didn’t tell you to do thinking that he did and he still provide away out? Yes. Abraham, Jacob, Moses, David were told by God to do something or go somewhere. He also told them to leave from where they where and go somewhere else even after telling them to go. He even changed the course of Joseph after the birth of Jesus. God can change the course of action in your life when ever he wants and when he wants.
He may tell you to do something one day and then tell you to do something else another day and it still could be his voice. Sometimes we question the voice of God when we hear something else down the road. It doesn’t always mean that what you heard the first time wasn’t him. He might put you in that season for a moment or a period of time but now it maybe time to move on. Abraham changed courses many times.
Abraham also did things that God didn’t tell him to do like going to Egypt during the famine. But even in the midst of that God gave him away out and he even came out with more from Egypt than when he got there. Abraham eventually ended up going back from where he came from under God’s direction. No matter what God always takes care of his people who love him even when we step out on our own sometimes like Abraham. Never think that God can’t change your course of action even when at one moment he told you to do something because at that time under those circumstances that was the direction he wanted you to go that was beneficial but now the course changed!!!
12 The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.
Abram in Egypt 10 Now there was a famine in the land, and Abram went down to Egypt to live there for a while because the famine was severe. (Went to Egypt without Gods instruction, trusting himself instead of God)
Genesis 13:1-2 (NIV)
13 So Abram went up from Egypt to the Negev, with his wife and everything he had, and Lot went with him. 2 Abram had become very wealthy in livestock and in silver and gold. (God made a way out for Abraham and he also allowed him to come out with more than he brought in even when you didn’t tell him to go. God takes care of his people!!!!
12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route. 13 When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.”
Don’t get frazzled if your course changes!!!! He’ll walk with you through it!!!!
Lord I pray that those who don’t know you come to know you and I pray that they ask you to forgive them of their sins and accept you in their life believing that you died for their sins and that you rose again on the third day so that they may live with you forever in your heavenly kingdom in Christ Jesus AMEN!!!
