The bible says that we have not because we ask not. The Lord already knows what we have need of before we ask, but it is important to follow the plan for provision. You must ask, seek and then knock. Each of these words require you to act. It’s not enough to lament about how terrible your universe is, because we have all been in similar situations; what is more important is that we follow the plan the Lord has prepared for us to follow.
If you get the steps out of the order, it may not fit together properly. Many people rarely read directions, and prefer to figure things out on their own. This usually causes a bit of frustration when things do not turn out as planned. Usually it is a last resort to read the directions.
Do we take the time to read our directions? The bible sits on many shelves going to ruin because they are unread. We have the answers to any question that is posed to us in that holy book, but do we sit down and read it? Technology is the greatest and most terrible thing to happen to our lives in this century. It is great because we can reach out to others all around the world, and it’s the most terrible thing, because we may not even see the ones who are sitting beside us because of cell phone abuse.
Too many dreams have been deferred just to live life. It’s time to dust them off and revisit them. Planting seeds and reaping a harvest does not happen overnight. It requires a time of waiting. Have you ever complained to God about your answers taking too long? We get so impatient when we need to be thankful that the Lord is working all things out for our good in his time. If we saw what the Lord sees, we would fully understand when he causes us to wait it out. He sees the obstacles before us and those detours he causes us to take, could really be the Lord’s way of protecting us from danger.
Do not underestimate the love of God. He loved us enough to send his son to take our place at Calvary. Renew your vision, and let’s do our best to fulfill his purpose for our lives.
In this week’s Lattereign, we ask an important question: Are you prepared to speak it into existance?
