Genesis 37:8 His brothers said to him, “Do you intend to reign over us? Will you actually rule us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dream and what he had said.
John 6:15 When Jesus saw that they were ready to force him to be their king, he slipped away into the hills by himself.
The fact that what you wanted most was found yet you still don’t have peace shows that what you need is God. Proverbs 15:16 Better is a little with the fear of the LORD, Than great treasure with trouble. There are millionaires sleeping on the hospital bed and unable to enjoy their money but you are healthy and think having money will make you happy. If you can wake up and can feel your legs, know that it’s grace. Its not how much you love God but how much He loves you.
Things should not make you who you are. Isaiah 55:1 “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price.
Matthew 20:22 But Jesus answered and said, “You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?” They said to Him, “We are able.”
God’ will, God’s time and God’s presence is success. If you are in His will there’s no need to pray for blessings. In the right position, there will be provision.
Genesis 22:8 And Abraham said, “My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.” So the two of them went together.
When you see a successful person, try to find out the battles he won and the challenges that comes with it, to be where he is than to wish for the things he possesses. Matthew 20:22 But Jesus answered and said, “You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?” They said to Him, “We are able.” You cannot own a supermarket and expect problems of a person owning a small shop. More blessings comes with challenges in that level.
When you hear a person who received breakthrough talk about how they had to sacrifice and work hard to get where they are and in the process glorifying themselves, they deny God the glory.
Job 31:24-28 “If I have made gold my hope, Or said to fine gold, ‘You are my confidence’; If I have rejoiced because my wealth was great, And because my hand had gained much; If I have observed the sun when it shines, Or the moon moving in brightness, So that my heart has been secretly enticed, And my mouth has kissed my hand; This also would be an iniquity deserving of judgment, For I would have denied God who is above.
You don’t have to work hard to receive what has been declared. We struggle with our gifts because we want to receive using shortcut instead of waiting. God declared his blessings foe Jacob but Jacob decided to cut the wait. This action led him to captivity. Things he should have received easily, he had to work hard to receive.
Genesis 28:13 And behold, the LORD stood above it and said: “I am the LORD God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants.
