Luke 22

Luke 22:8-13 “And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat. And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare? And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in. And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples? And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready. And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.”

God isn’t going to command us to do something without already having done the work. When Peter and John were commanded by Jesus to go prepare the Passover they found that everything was just as Jesus had said it would be, the room and everything that they needed were provided for. However they did have to obey exactly what Jesus had told them to do. I wonder how often we “rob” God of opportunities to use us because we won’t obey, I wonder how many blessings we’ve “robbed” God from giving us because we didn’t obey him.


Lord help me to obey whatever it is that you put before me to do… Help me to rely on your perfect timing… Lord help me to obey in your streangth and for your glory… Father help me to do everything for our honor and glory…
