One day I was cooking and just meditation on various things. I begin to start thinking about past intimate relationships I had and wanted to re-visit one of them. But previously the Lord told me not to go back because that is not He wanted for my life. I constantly had the thoughts of calling or texting that person but then I heard the Lord clearly while I was cooking and said, “Why is it that you hear me so clearly when I am giving you word for someone else but can’t hear me when I am giving you a word for your life?” All I saw after that was a mic drop on the floor. I did not have any words to say but God you are right. Then I said again, did You just drop the mic?
The term dropping the mic means that someone just said something or called out someone by making a strong statement that makes one speechless. When God said that to me, I had nothing to say or could not make an argument or nothing. So now every time I think about doing something I use to do that God called me out of, I instantly think of God dropping the mic on me. God gives us warning and He tells us through his word, divine revelation, dreams, etc, of right and wrong… for ourselves!
The story of Solomon explains it best about the dangers of ignoring what God has told you to do. In 1 Kings 11:9-10 says, “And the Lord was angry with Solomon because his heart was turned from the Lord, the God of Israel, Who had appeared to him twice, And had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods, but he did not do what the Lord commanded.” There are other examples but the Lord told Solomon twice and it made the Lord angry to see that He was not following what He had told him to do.
How many times have God told you to do something and you have not done it? In result, the kingdom was ripped away from Solomon. Just like the power of God left Saul because of his disobedience. God is calling us to go higher in Him by following His word for our lives. No longer shall God have to tell us over and over again what we need to do. If we are His children, then we should obey Him. In John 10:27 says, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me”
