Can You handle His Blessings?

 

(Matthew 25:23) “His master told him, ‘Well done, good and trustworthy servant! Since you have been trustworthy with a small amount, I will put you in charge of a large amount. Come and share your master’s joy!’”

(Ephesians 3:20-21) “Now to the one who can do infinitely more than all we can ask or imagine according to the power that is working among us— to him be glory in the church and in the Messiah Jesus to all generations, forever and ever! Amen.”

 

 

We all chase, desire, pray and fast for God’s blessings. But are we sure we can handle it if God decides to give us what we are asking for? Remember that He is able to do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine. Even your wildest dreams are a child’s game for God to accomplish. C.S. Lewis wrote, “A simple drug can bring a man to such an addiction that can make him lose total control and destroy his life. Imagine if you stood in the fullness of the presence of the God that created that drug just by the sound of His voice”.

We seem to forget that before God can pour out upon us power, success, finances, complete health, a large family, children, or even ministry, He needs to make sure we have what it takes to handle it. If we get proud with finances and fame, then we are guaranteed a fall.

If we don’t have the patience to love unconditionally, and sacrificially, then we will end up hurting our spouse and have a miserable marriage. If we have not learnt to speak correctly, then we will only end up cursing our children when they make mistakes instead of urging them on to succeed in life. If He takes away that physical insecurity or infectious disease we have, we might end up living a frantic sexual life. If you are sensitive to what others think or say about you, you won’t last long in ministry and end up retaliating with your words. God knows what He is doing.

(“It’s in the day of small beginnings that He teaches you patience and consistency. Here you develop the ability to stand up to the pressure that accompany blessings. The more you have, the more you are responsible for. The more you have, the more you’re responsible for. People who have no car need no gas. Everything God gives you requires maintenance. God gave Adam the garden, but he had to dress it. Ask God to help you grow so you can handle all He has prepared for you.” – Bob Gass)
