HEALING BROKEN HEARTS AND WOUNDED SOULS

“IF…” continued

My last post was titled, “If…”, and in that post I said if Jesus paid so great a price for me to have the blessings God has in store for me, then how can He again put a limit on my blessing. I wanted to show that most often we do not get blessed because we fail to lay claim to what is ours.
In this post I will go further on the topic. You might be asking yourself, “I know God has many good things for me; I know He wants the best for me, but no matter how hard I try, I never seem to obtain that which pertains to me.
“What are you telling me woman? I didn’t choose to live like a beggar. I wish to enter into the fullness of my blessing, but I just don’t seem to get it each time I try.”
From my own experience with God I have learned a few lessons that I will like to share with you.
1) Your difficulties may be a result of seeds another person sowed some time ago. Generational blessings are real, so too are generational curses. That is why you must sow the right seeds today so your children will not suffer in the future.
2) Your misery may be as a consequence of the irresponsible decisions someone is making. The world is a global community and we cannot really escape from the effects of others’ folly. You will have to be wiser and smarter in order not to keep being at the receiving end of every wrong decision in your neighborhood.
3) Your own very lifestyle and mistakes may be responsible for your situation. God forgives sin, but He does not always take away its consequence. Sometimes we just have to bear the wages of our mistakes while waiting on God to heal our bodies, souls and spirits.
4) Ignorance can keep you in the fire when you are supposed to be under air condition. Do you know your position in Christ? Do you even know what God has promised you? How can you write a check when you don’t even know what amount of money you have in your account? Do you know God’s principles for prosperity?
5) Are you correctly positioned? Blessings are always attached to particular locations and assignments. Your blessing is attached to your calling, purpose or assignment. Are you where you should be, and doing what you should be doing?
6) Sometimes we need to wage spiritual warfare to get back what the devil has stolen from us. Do not underestimate his capacity to distract and derail you; to keep you from achieving your goals in life. There is a part you will have to play. If you stay in bed, cry and complain you will never go anywhere. The devil has no pity in him. Your tears can’t save you. Your faith in God will. And faith without works, we know, is dead faith (James 2:19-26).
This list is in no way exhaustive, but by answering these questions you can begin to understand why sometimes we never really get to enjoy what our Father has in store for us. God’s grace does not in any way replace hard work, obedience and the respect of biblical principles.
Get to work, and see you on the blessed side of life.
