The excuse saying, “I don’t know,” from those that are His, will not work anymore. God knows what you know. He knows if you hear Him and He knows whether you obey Him in what you know.
Matt. 24:24 -25 says, “Then the servant with one bag of silver came and said, I KNEW YOU were a harsh man, harvesting crops you did not plant and gathering crops you did not cultivate. I was AFRAID I would lose your money, so I HID it in the earth. Look, here is your money back.’
26 “But the master replied, ‘you wicked and lazy servant! If YOU KNEW I harvested crops I did not plant and gathered crops I did not cultivate, why didn’t you deposit my money in the bank?
There is an accountability coming that God will require from those that know but do not do. The result of knowing and not doing, the Lord called laziness and useless. He had a way of dealing with that (Matt. 24:29-30). When you do nothing when God has asked you to do something, it’s laziness in His eyes…a step further, rebellion…outright rebellion because YOU KNOW.
Be obedient, not lazy and rebellious. It will lead to being cast out. God holds you accountable to what you know. Disobedience led by fear causes you to hide the gift that God has given you and it also causes you to hide or mask the Truth from others (Matt.23:13).
The answer to you in following through with your obedience is this…Matt.5:15.
Hear what the Spirit is saying…
