Isaiah 43:18-22 ( KJV) Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen. This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise. But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel.
Just before Juliet was born, an angel of the Lord had appeared to her Dad giving him information and instructions concerning his daughter. One of such instructions was that she was not to be brought up with affluence; she was to learn to be moderate, firm, and trust God for her needs because of the nature of the assignment God has for her.
Even when her parents told her about these things, she could not understand why the only daughter of a billionaire will be treated as a commoner by her own parents. In anger and pain, she abandoned her parents and left the house to go seek after what she considered a better life. The best she got however was nothing compared to what her parents were offering. After much frustration, she returned to her parents only to discover that all her father’s estate had been willed to her. “But Dad, why didn’t you tell me you have willed all you have to me all along?” She asked, “didn’t I told you I have good plans for you?” her Dad replied. She became ashamed of her actions and asked for the forgiveness of her parents. “I am so sorry for not trusting you” she pleaded.
It is by faith in God through Jesus Christ that you become enlisted for the promised blessings. It is however by trusting God continually and unwaveringly that you will become a partaker of the blessings. This will require process and time, you will have to demonstrate faithfulness before God will entrust the resources of His kingdom to you.
The second thing needed to appropriate God’s promised blessings is faith and patience. Hebrews 6:12 (KJV), “That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises”.
Go into today asking God for the faith and patience needed for you to obtain the promises. If you have judged God unfaithful and have abandoned him like Juliet did her parents, repent and ask for God’s forgiveness.
