Doing As Told

To read the Bible in a year, read Second Kings 9-11.
Elisha told one of the sons of the prophets to take some oil and go to Jehu and anoint him as king over Israel (2Kings 9.1-3). The Bible shows that the young man did as he was told, “So the young man, the servant of the prophet, went to Ramoth Gilead. And when he arrived, there were the captains of the army sitting; and he said, ‘I have a message for you, Commander.’ Jehu said, ‘For which one of us?’ And he said, ‘For you, Commander'” (vv. 4, 5). The young man then told Jehu that he was the new king and what he was to do as the king (vv. 6-10), and then the young man left.
Why do we fight doing things as God said to do them? We only make ourselves miserable. Be bold today. When you discover in the Scriptures what the Lord wants you to do, do it as He said to do it.
