There are a lot of things that God has provided for you as His child but you will need to fight for them before you can lay hold on them. Many of God’s people have ended up lesser than what God ordained them to be because they were not ready to fight for all that God has for them. I will show you some things you must know in order to be victorious in the battles of life.
Identify early, the cause that you will live for in life
When you identify the reason behind your life, you will spend the rest of your life managing it. Thus, if you can identify that cause early, you will have more time to defend it. Great people live for a cause beyond their stomach. Until you can give God a greater reason than your stomach to bless you, God will not directly bless you. He will bless you through someone else.
Sometimes, because you are chosen by God for something great, there will be certain things that will not happen for you or to you the way it is happening for other people. God allows this in order to purify your motives, change your attitudes and fine tune your desires.
Sometimes, when God is developing you for greater leadership in life, He doesn’t do things for you as quickly as He does for other people because the ones that will provide greater leadership must have deeper thinking. If God is going to use you for something greater, He is not going to work the way He works in every other person's life, and that must make you look deeper and farther. An immature person has the tendency to think something is wrong with him because God is not answering his prayers as fast as that of another person.
God is not committed to your comfort; He is committed to His purpose for your life. He is not committed to your reputation; He is committed to His counsel for your life. If His counsel for your life would mean that you lose your reputation, He would ensure you lose it. Going to the prison was part of the purpose of God for Joseph for him to get to the place he was going. Therefore, if you are only looking for your comfort, you will lose God's eternal purpose for your life.
The experience that God takes us through will determine the instrument that will be produced. When you want to produce a spoon and a cutlass, the heat that the two will go through would be different. So whatever the Lord is taking you through, it is because of what He wants to make out of you and you have to have the end in view so that you go through the process correctly (Hebrews 12:2).
Prayer: Father, I receive a divine awareness and awakening to your program and process for my life. Help me to walk worthy of my purpose and become all you have destined me to be in Jesus’ name. Amen.
