It's a New Week!
Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you've had a lovely weekend. God has been reminding me this season that He is the God of process and as a Christian, I must not bypass His process to achieve growth. There are some growths that are not God's agenda for us as Christians. God has the right time for every growth that He would like us to experience. He is the God of Process.
Why does it take at least 38 weeks for the formation of a baby in a mother's womb?
Why do trees and plants take time to grow and blossom?
Why does the harvesting of crops take seasons before you can get a nice and lovely fruit out of the tree?
Even, God's creation took a couple of days before God finished creating the world.
Sometimes the process of a thing may be short or long but the most important thing is, there is a process for everything that we experience on earth. Do you sometimes take a pause and ask God to tell you His plan about what you are going through or what you are waiting for?
Hebrews 10:36 says "You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised."
Whose will should you do? The will of God.
Who should persevere? You!
- Joseph went through a process before God lifted him up. God moulded Joseph through his various experiences.
- Jesus went through a process before He died and rose again. He went through various temptations on this earth and He overcame them. I hope you know that the temptations weren't limited to the ones in the wilderness.
- David also went through a process before he became king, albeit he had been anointed a very long time. One would have thought David would become king immediately after he was anointed but no, he had to go through a process that tested his patience, humility, his character, his heart, his love, amongst many other things. David had to wait for God's appointed time. Essentially, he was anointed but waited for God's appointed time.
Are you waiting for God's appointed time for that particular thing that you are holding on to God for? How are you waiting?
King Saul was appointed as king but during his reign, he kept on doing things that did not please God but pleased human beings eventually, God rejected him as king.
As long you are living according to God's Word, I'd like to encourage you not to despise God's process for your life. Stay true to God's Word. If you have missed it along the way, ask God for mercy and retrace your steps to God.
