Obedience gives good results

Doing exactly what God has told you to do brings about good results.
The Most High God knows everything; He is omniscient.
His words are so powerful that they are capable of manifesting what is contained.

Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

For example,
Jesus Christ told His disciples to wait in the upper room for the promise of the Holy Spirit; when they obeyed and waited, the Holy Spirit came upon them (Acts 2:1–4).

Dear friends, what is God telling you to do?
Your prompt obedience to His Word will manifest your miracle.

When the ten lepers asked for healing from Jesus, Jesus instructed them to go and show themselves to the priests

Luke 17:13-14
¹³They raised their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” ¹⁴When He saw them, He said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they were going, they were cleansed.

They were healed while they were obeying Him.

Dear friends, disobedience is responsible for many of our challenges and unanswered prayers.
Act on God’s Word; do exactly as He has told you, and you will receive the promise.
