WHY MANY WONDERFUL CHRISTIANS ARE MISSING GOD’S BLESSINGS
It’s the desire of God to bless His children not only spiritually but physically, financially, materially and martially, but one of the reasons many children of God are not experiencing the abundant blessings of God beyond human expectation is because many are missing the blessings, and here I want to share with you, by the grace of God, one of the reasons many wonderful Christians are missing God’s blessings.
In your personal life, finance, career, business, marriage or ministry, if things are not working as God promised you, you may or might have been missing the blessings of God only for this reason, and the reason is simple: FAILING GOD’S TEST OR FALLING INTO SATAN’S TEMPTATION.
Today, let’s share the first part:
Why Many Wonderful Christians Are Missing God’s blessings: FAILING GOD’S TEST
Before God can launch you into His abundant blessings, He will first give you a tip of the blessings and see how faithful you will be. God’s test here is not to destroy you or to tempt you into sin but to see how faithful you are with the little or much He has given you.
Every Christian must pass through period of test before they cross to the abundant blessings of God. Test is a path by which we pass into the abundant blessings of God, so passing the test from God is passing into the blessings of God, and failing the test of God is forfeiting the promised blessings of God.
Let’s look at the life of Abraham in Genesis 22. God tested Abraham and asked him to sacrifice his only son Isaac, and he obeyed and passed the test, it was after Abraham passed the test that God confirmed the promise of blessings for him. In verse 15 to 17 of Genesis chapter 22 “ Then the Angel of the LORD called to Abraham a second time out of heaven, 16 and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son— 17 blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies.”
How God Tests Us
There are different ways God tests His children before releasing the abundant blessings into their lives just like Abraham.
WITH LITTLE: He can test us by giving us a little of the blessings maybe spiritual gift, anointing, talents, financial blessings, etc. and then see how we will be faithful with that little. Many people fail the test of the little. When a Christian fails the test of the little, he may lose that very little he has, Matthew 25:28, or remain stagnant in the little position, Luke 16:11.
WITH WAITING: God also tests His children with a period of waiting. Sometimes when God has the best of the bests for His children, He tests them with waiting patiently on Him. It may be for financial blessings, marital partners, jobs, breaking forth in ministry, etc. So many people are failing the test of waiting on the Lord and so missing the abundant blessings of God for their lives. Many wait 10%, and then loose heart and fall away, many even wait 99.9% and when it remains just few moments, they fall away and miss it forever. You may not know the point at which you have reached in your waiting on the Lord, maybe your time of divine visitation is closer than you think.
The Most Easiest Difficult Thing
One of the difficult things in walking with the Lord is waiting on Him in one area or the other, because you don’t know when the waiting will end, just keep waiting, but it’s easier than wasting your time or your life and missing the blessings of God forever. Waiting on God, though difficult but easy, saves us from wandering about, wasting our time, or working against the will of God, just simply wait, and if we patiently wait till the end, we shall receive the abundant blessings of God beyond human understanding.
When God keeps telling you “WAIT”, though it seems difficult, boring or late, but there is no other way to experience the abundant blessings and fulfillment of God’s promises for your life than to wait on Him to the end.
So What Happens?
What happen if a Christian fails the test of little or waiting? It means that Christian will miss or forfeit the blessings of God either temporally or permanently, depending.
May we not miss the blessings of God for our lives in Jesus name.
