“And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].”ROMANS 12:2 AMP
Have you ever wondered why there are non- christians that are wealthy, can always buy the things they want in an instant? And can practically get what they want at will? We see them more blessed that we do. We see them get blessings upon blessings before our eyes and before us?
I often asked myself, everytime I see them, and at the same time ask the Lord why?
I am often confronted with so many questions in my mind and wondered why they get so tremendously blessed and here I am still waiting for provisions.
Over the years, I keep asking the Lord over and over why non- christians get so blessed and others are not!
Until, one day, I heard Him saying “in their blessings, there is no power, no anointing and sustaining power, do not be dismayed for their wealth can be taken in an instant and my presence is not with them to sustain it. They are like stagnant water. Where my presence is, there is sustaining power, like streams of river it keeps overflowing” then, I realized it’s actually true.
His ways are always higher than our ways. His thoughts are not our thoughts. We may see them tremendously blessed but we don’t know what they go through. Are they able to sleep in the night free of worries like us? Can they still enjoy life like we do? Can they talk to God like we do?
That very minute I heard Him saying that. I stopped mumbling and focused myself to keep pressing on and keep waiting for the right time, His exact and perfect time.
We really cannot judge people in the natural because we don’t know what they go through. Our focus should not be in the norms of this world, for it will easily fade and lose.
I remember one preacher saying that if you are not ready, then it will destroy you. If your intentions are bad, the anointing will destroy you. True as it is the anointing of the Lord that will propel us to the next level. We move from glory to glory. It may take us a long time, a different route but it will definitely be worth it. Like the process of a diamond, it goes through years of perfection and once it reaches its final stage then the diamond is indestructible. Like when God blessed us, it surely unstoppable and indestructible because the presence of the Lord will carry us through and sustains it.
We may not get what we want at present, but God wants us to patiently wait for the right time. He is God and He is good. He will never let us down. We just keep on pressing our way in, carry His presence until the final day that we live in the life He promised for us.
The bible says, God wants us to live a life full of joy, a lavish life. While we go through and it isn’t there yet. Let’s keep rejoicing, love like Christ. Keep sowing so that in the time of harvest we have plenty of good things to harvest and surely it will be worth it. Without a doubt, it will be worth the wait.
God will never leave us empty. He always gears us, armed to the full, from head to toe so we are ready to fight the battles in life. God has never promised that we can easily live in this world but He said it will be worth it. Let’s keep trusting God in this!
Let’s not forget as we go through the storms of life that He geared us to use the whole armor of God to withstand the evil day, use the belt of truth for it will set us free, the breastplate of righteousness so we know who do we stand with and the power we have through Jesus, the sandal of peace for our feet as we walk and the use of our faith as a shield so no schemes of the enemy will penetrate us and most importantly the Sword of the Lord which is the Word. The Word that will never fade away. Things will fall, earth will be destroyed but His Word will and shall stand both past and future ages.
