There are many different levels of Honor and my question to you today is what level are you on? As we grow up we have different grades we enter into each year. Based on what we learned and how we apply it, that when test comes it will reveal if we pass the next test and if we are going to the next level or did we fail the test and have to re take the class again and so it is in the spiritual. We are equipped with lessons and when the test comes based on how we received The Word and apply it will determine if we go to the next level. So when it comes down to your level of honor are you still in elementary, have you graduated to middle school, are you in high school? What level are you on?
God wants you take the principles of Honor and start wherever you are located and start Honoring.When you Honor you will serve. When you Honor, God will give you ideas on how you can honor. God will give you things to do for where you are located right now on how to serve your authorities.God is not looking for lip service but heart service which will be reveal in my actions. What you do right now, reveals to God what level you are on for honoring and serving and what God can do with you.
Matthew 15:8( NIV)‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me."
There are always opportunities to Honor, our eyes just needs to be open to see them, and that is something only God to do when we ask Him.
Genesis 9:21-23 “When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent. 22 Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father naked and told his two brothers outside. 23 But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father’s naked body. Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father naked’.
Now when Noah had awaken and found what Ham had done, he cursed him. But to the ones who covered him, he blessed and praised them. God always blesses those who Honor. When your man of God nakedness is revealed, will you cover or expose?
Shem and Japheth turned their backs on Noah’s nakedness to cover him up but they made sure no one else saw it either. They covered Noah, rather than expose him. This is Honor. This reveals that they Honored Noah in their heart and it was not just lip service but when the test came they covered him. And made sure no one else saw him this state. They covers Noah even when Noah did not release he needed covering.
When you Honor you will honor and cover the man of God in public and in private.
2 Kings 2:6 (MSG) Then Elijah said to Elisha, “Stay here. God has sent me on an errand to the Jordan.”Elisha said, “Not on your life! I’m not letting you out of my sight!” And so the two of them went their way together.'
Elisha had his assignment from God and no matter what Elijah said Elisha was going to obey God and follow.God will show you and reveal to you how to Honor at whatever level you are located. So make a decision today to start honoring.
