CAN GOD COUNT ON YOU? HOW YOU CAN MAKE GOD COUNT ON YOU

One of the things that God will not do is to bypass the responsible. In fact, his system of justice and righteousness will not allow him to do it God will not bypass the responsible for divine assignment and divine communication.
when you see anyone who proves him or herself responsible before God over time, God cannot but give him/her more assignments and reveal his secrets to him/her. God will not bypass that responsible father, the responsible church, the responsible Pastor, the responsible Brother etc. There is something beautiful about responsibility; it draws a man to God. if you want God to be committed to you, all you need to do is to be faithful to him and live a life of responsibility before him.

Among the sons of Jesse, it was the responsibility of David that drew God to him. He was responsibible over the flock of sheep; he was responsible to his father's assignment.

A worthy example of a responsible man that God will not bypass for divine communication is ABRAHAM (Gen. 18:16-19)  When the men got up to leave, they looked down toward Sodom, and Abraham walked along with them to see them on their way. 17 Then the Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do? 18 Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all nations on earth will be blessed through him.[a] 19 For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just, so that the Lord will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him.

 
God himself attested to the responsible lifestyle of Abraham and so God was left with no alternative than to reveal his intentions to Abraham concerning Sodom and Gomorrah. Unlike many Christians, after God had declared his intention to destroy those cities, Abraham took it upon himself to stand in the Gap and interceded for Lot.


But look at Eli, the high Priest, a man who was once a great honour and privilege before God, as a result of his irresponsibility over his Children suffered much loss. He not only lost the divine communication of God over his life that God bypassed him to speak to Samuel, a twelve year old boy concerning things to come, he also lost his two sons and heritage in Israel. The act of irresponsibility of Eli equally brought severe judgment of God over his generation. (1 Sam. 3:1-14).

HOW CAN I MAKE GOD COUNT ON ME? SIMPLE ANSWER TO THIS IS TO LIVE A RESPONSIBLE LIFE.

Live your life in such a way that God can count on you. To every assignment that God has given o all of us, He has several others that can do it well. God has a replacement for all of us in case we fail. make up your mind, to live your life in such a way ha God will not have a replacement for you in that which he has committed into your hands. live your life in such a way that God can count on you all the time.
