As of late many have been questioning, where are my blessings, why hasn’t God blessed me yet? Now I’m drawing from my own opinion and observation of others and I’m posing these questions, are you ready for your blessings? Does your attitude/character match that of a person who would share and be a blessing to others? Can you handle your blessings once you receive them?
I’m talking from a perspective of a person who has been blessed and seeks to be a blessing to others. I say that everything is about timing and having the patience to wait on your blessings, faith of a mustard seed! People must understand that nothing can be rushed before it’s time. I often hear the scripture in my head “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God” Philippians 4:6
I’ve reached a point in my existence where I don’t want to jump ahead of God, realizing that certain events, happenings or situations must be intricately woven into my life, so as I level up, I’m prepared for it. Having a solid prayer life is also another key element to your blessings, don’t mumble a few words under your breath and expect God to hear them, God will listen, just like you prayed, half-heartedly. Take the time to allow the presence of God to fill the room or space your in. God will let you know when he’s there, for me the walls will literally crack, like the room has become pressurized and the floorboards will begin to creak, God is that massive, all praises due to the most high!
Now let’s touch on the topic, does your attitude/character match that of a person who would be a blessing to others? I’ve personally witnessed someone walk pass an individual who they felt in their mind was of a lower work status than them, basically saying in not so many words “you’re beneath me, I have no reason to speak to you.” This particular person then went on to ask “why isn’t God blessing me?” in a conversation, I held with them later in the day. The answer was simple and very clear, how could God bless you by elevating you to a higher stature in life, exposing you to even more people to treat like dirt? Look inward, dissect yourself, maybe you’re the reason why a miracle hasn’t manifested yet. Food for thought!
Lastly, can you handle your blessings, once you received them? Truth be told, I don’t think anyone is ready to manage all the blessings that God has stored up for us, if God was to give you everything you prayed for, at one time, your heart would literally burst, instead he tests you, challenges you, makes you earn your blessings, corrects what needs to be corrected, adds and then subtracts what doesn’t fit seamlessly into his plan for you.
Moreover, blessings are not always monetary, yes we would like them to be, but they come in different forms such as a strategy, a plan, divine connections, an alliance for you to gain the capital that is needed for you to be financially free. Store up your riches in Zion!
I’ll end here with this scripture 1 Timothy 6:18-19
“Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way, they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
Are your ready for your blessings?
