A man of God had a revelation where he saw himself anointing the eyes of his wife with his saliva. The wife had suddenly developed a swell on her eyes, and they were in the midst of a major convention. He confessed to his wife that he would not bring himself to doing something as ridiculous as that. Before he knew it, the wife had brought a plate for him to spit and apply. She insisted it must be done. Amazingly, the eyes cleared after that act. What would you have done if you were the wife or husband?

Friend, there are crazy instructions that are divine. They do not always come, but once they do, we should have enough faith to carry them out (2 Kings 5:10-12). It is easy to read stories from the Bible about how people got their miracles and breakthroughs. But have you stopped to consider how crazy most of the instructions that birthed the miracles were? If you were to live in the Bible days, would you have yielded to such?

Can you fetch water in a cup and give the MC of your wedding hoping it would turn to wine (John 2:1-11)? Note that the water did not turn to wine before taking it to the MC. It turned to wine when the MC tasted it. If it were you, how would you feel carrying out such instruction? What would be going through your mind? How would you look before people? Would you not hesitate to carry out such instructions?

Here you are, receiving an instruction to build an ark (Genesis 6:11-18). God had said He would send flood on the earth. You don’t know what rain looked like, let alone flood. You probably don’t have any skill in building technology. You are only following God. People would mock you daily as you resume work on the ark. It looked crazy. Some might have called you mad. Others would laugh you to scorn. Some would ignore and not take you seriously. Yet, you obeyed God in faith (Hebrews 11:7).

If you were to bring down a very high wall, how would you have attempted going about it (Joshua 6:1-20)? Is it not to start demolishing it even if it would take you days and even months? But here you are, marching round the wall based on divine instruction. You even had to march around it seven times (Joshua 6:15)! You had to endure the seeming craze of doing this severally with no visible sign that the wall was giving way. Your team had some mockers and complainers. But you had to, based on divine instruction.

What if your man of God tells you to go to the sea and bring money from the mouth of a fish to pay ministry bills (Matthew 17:24-27)? Would you dare to go? See, everyone wants a miracle, but not many people want the ridicule. If you must experience God in your life, learn to obey His instructions, no matter how crazy they seem (Job 36:11, Isaiah 1:18). Once it is not unrighteous, illegal, or violates scriptures, obey such instructions. Miracles are always products of divinity and humanity. Whatever he tells you to do, just do it (John 2:5). Understood?
