The goodness of God knows no bound. It is in the nature of God to bless His people at all times. However, why many do not experience the manifestations of these blessings as they ought to, is due to lack of spiritual growth. God is not a waster of resources.
From our scriptural text we discovered that the first thing God takes into consideration before the release of His showers of blessing is the promise of building the people. He said; "I will make them...." The making process always precedes the blessing season. What you are asking God for now in prayer, have you paused for a moment to ask yourself if you are matured enough for it? Can you handle that financial breakthrough? Can you handle that marriage? We are meant to focus first on our spiritual, emotional and mental growth before demanding access into certain level of blessings.
The bible reveals this truth to us in Acts 20:32 "now I commit you to God and to the Word of His Grace, which CAN BUILD YOU UP, AND GIVE YOU an inheritance among all those who are sanctified."
Until the word build you up, it cannot give you access to an inheritance. As it is in the physical, so it is as well in the spiritual realm. You cannot give a car key to a 4 year old to drive no matter how you love the child. Like my son will always say,"Dad, let me drive" and I will look at him and smile, because I know he is not matured enough to handle what he is requesting. Likewise, God often smiled at you, because He knows you do not understand the magnitude of what you are demanding. Give yourself first to the word, and grow in order to access your inheritance.
Galatians 4:1-2 What I am saying is that as long as the heir is a child, he is no different from a slave, although he owns the whole estate. He is subject to guardians and trustees until the time set by his father.
Apostle Paul made us understand that as long as you're a child, you're no different from a slave. Who is a child? A child is someone not matured in reasoning, in decision making. You can be of age and still acts as a child. Age is not a yardstick for maturity. What gives you access into the blessings you are made for, is your growth in the word of God.
1 Peter 2:2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation.
Have you seen when a newborn baby is hungry? The baby will cry and cry until the mother gives her food. When you see a baby that does not cry for food such a child will look retarded, malnourished.
In other words, when a believer does not crave for spiritual milk, that is the word of God, he/she becomes retarded. Though is a believer but lacks necessary essential nutrients for his growth. The essence for the crave is for nourishment, growth.
1. Oh Lord, build me up with your word today.
2. I walk in the fullness of God's blessing, I can never be limited and I can't be stopped in Jesus name.
3. The blessings of God is at work in my life making me rich and prosperous in everything I lay my hands on in Jesus name amen.
GOD BLESS YOU.
