I often see many of us hope for miracles, hope for changes for our lives, blessings, etc. but we don’t do anything. It always shocks me so much to hear people say, “I’m waiting, God will provide. “
Honestly, I think it’s really selfish to wait for God to do all the work for us. Some of us hope for jobs, others hope for miracles in their finances. Others hope for miracles for their relationships, and openings in other areas. I am not saying that it is wrong to hope and to have faith that God will act. I mean stop stating that you are receiving without doing anything. God will work miracles, but you must also work. “All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.” (Proverbs 14:23) Work as hard as you hope. Miracles do not happen without actions. Don’t spend more time shouting “I declare, I receive” than working to receive what you expect. Many are using God. Many come only when there is a need or a situation to resolve so that God can do all the work. Be an actor of your existence. God also wants wonderful things for you. And even for the call He has for your destiny, it also takes work from you, He cannot reveal to you your call for your life and then you don’t do anything about this revelation. Act for your life too.
God giving you talents, He equips you, you need work on your part and you need to know how to implement and use the talents that God has placed in you.
I am closing with this little reminder, the Bible says: « Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart » (Psalm 37:4). To make the Lord one’s delights is to place Him above all things, to seek His presence. To make the Lord your delight is to approach Him with prayer, with respect and confidence, to pour out your heart before Him, to be true to Him, to realize His strength and His power, to remember the wonders He created and what He does in your life. It’s letting Him lead your life with confidence that He wants the best for you. He can’t give you what your heart desires if you don’t make Him come first, if you don’t give Him His place. He knows what your heart desires, He will grant you, you must also be ambitious.
Fill your life as best as you can with constructive things, valuable people, worthwhile experiences, and remember that you have to make efforts, because nothing falls out of the sky. God has already made you good, you have to show it to others and trust God.
