When God tells me to do something, I do it without expecting anything enjoyable on the way. This is how I’ve managed to appreciate every thing He does, no matter how little. Many people believe that everything God tells them to do must come out beautiful, that’s not always true. Sometimes, what He tells you may require that you endure hardness. I remember how God sent me to work in a company where salary was not paid for 3 months. The company didn’t make sales, so there was no way workers could get paid. Yet, I went to work everyday, even if I had to trek to the office. The situation pressed me to asked God why salary wasn’t getting paid, He responded saying “I didnt send you there to be paid, but to be trained”.
God may tell you sweet things, but don’t expect the journey to be sweet. Of course, He’d make a way in the wilderness, but you still have to pass through the wilderness. God showed Joseph that he’d become a man of great authority, but see what he went through. God told Abraham that he’d be the father of many nations, but see the torments that Abraham had to go through. Someone will think that delivering Isreal from Egypt would be easy after Moses had an encounter with God, but see what he had to go through in Egypt. This will help many young ministers; don’t go about questioning God’s call over every obstacle you encounter on the road, God only spoke to you about the end and expected you to do something about the road. God sent Jesus to reconcile man to God; that sounded easy, but see what Jesus had to go through. However, the good news is; the road may be rough, but if it’s God that sent you, then you will finish strong.
That’s how far we’d go on today’s Timely Note. But take these last words; GOD’S WORD MAY BE GOOD NEWS, BUT YOU STILL NEED TO ENGAGE DILIGENCE AND GREAT DISCIPLINE TO SEE THE GOODNESS IN GOD’S WORD MANIFEST IN YOUR LIFE. Have a most fruitful week, in Jesus precious name!
