We often don’t acknowledge that the blessings we desire and God is able to give can break us. When we ask to be blessed we do not consider the implications of the blessing. We need to understand that to whom much is given much will be required. As such the blessings for which we pray may seem to be delayed but there is a reason for this delay.
The word lets us know that the blessings of the Lord maketh rich and addeth no sorrow with it. So because God is wise instead of giving what we ask for immediately he allows us to go through a process which causes us to be built and strengthened for that which He will bless us with. During the process we may become lonely, tired, angry, sad. We may even experience grief during the process. However, amist the myriad of kaleidoscopic emotions, throughout the process we will see glimpses of what will be endowed upon us manifested which will give strength to keep moving along the journey.
The process is necessary for us not to destroy ourselves. For instance, in the natural if you give a car to a six year old to drive, though it may seem like a blessing to him it will result in breaking/death of that child as he is not quite aware of how to properly maneuver the vehicle amongst other things.
We are not the only ones who have to endure the process. David before he was anointed king had to go through the process of being a shepherd. Before he faced Goliath he had to go through the process of killing lions and bears. Yes, all these things happened in the background out of the limelight. But when it was time for the limelight/ show he was already prepared as he had been rehearsing for a period of time. He was able to bear the weight of the blessings because he went through the process. Don’t get caught up focusing on the limelight. It will happen. You will get to be upstage and center. Go through the process and build spiritual muscles to bear the blessings that God is about to pour out on you!!!
