Nigerian Fast Rising Adamawa Based Evangelist Ellah Emmanuel is yet out with a Charge Tittled ” You want to be Blessed, He wants To be Glorified ” Read and be blessed of the Lord in Jesus name.
It’s true that you want God to bless you. You want him to lift you to great heights in life. You want him to give you breakthroughs and extraordinary accomplishments in life. While all of that are good and wonderful you need to understand that in as much as God wants you to get blessed and to enjoy many good things in life, he also wants to be glorified in everything that happens to you.
This is why most often God will have to subject you to challenging process in order to take you to your place of blessing and lifting. So that while you are celebrating and enjoying your blessing on this end, God is being glorified on the other end. The two are meant two happen simultaneously.
The Bible contains stories of men who enjoyed God’s lifting and blessing. Interestingly, none of these men got to enjoy what they did without passing through serious series of troubles and challenges.
If you can’t remember any of these men in the Bible, you should be able to remember joseph and the troubles he had to pass through in order to get to where God promised him in destiny.
We all are subject to different kinds of challenges almost every blessed day of our lives. I need you to understand that many out of these challenges are actually for our liftings and for God’s glorification.
You want the blessings, he wants the glory, this is why he humbles and prepares you by the process through which the blessings come so that at the end of the day, you won’t be tempted in any way to take the glory to yourself and also, those around you will join you in glorifying Him(God).
This simple truth could be the reason behind that very challenge you are passing through presently.
How can you recognize the Almightiness of God after he must have lifted you up, if you are not humbled by those troubles and challenges that form the process through which he takes you to that place of blessing and lifting.
Please learn these,
Do not fight every challenge that comes your way. Some of them are actually a part of what you MUST pass through in order to get to your place of blessing.
There are some cups that you MUST drink of them for you to get to some places in life. And your refusal to drink of those cups can perpetually hinder you from getting to those places.
There are problems we face that the best solution is to pass through them with patience and endurance, and not trying to “solve” them. You are not meant to dissolve some challenges that come to you even when you can. Rather you are meant to pass through them with patience and endurance so that you can learn of them to afford you the right to handle some great blessings in life.
God can actually watch you as you use your own wisdom to solve those problems and you can actually succeed at it, but at the same time you are hindering something greater from coming your way.
You may ask why?
This is because there are always lessons for you to learn in every process God lays before you that are required in your effective managing and handling of whatever blessing or lifting he intends for you.
So, those problems are there to teach you these lessons so that you can qualify for that very blessing or lifting. Failure to allow yourself to be taught by those problems and challenges means the rejection of God’s blessing and lifting in your life.
God wants the glory, you want the blessing, and in order to achieve these two at the same time, a process that exposes you to challenges and troubles is necessary. And you will have to pass through the process and succeed at it in order to enjoy the blessings.
Don’t fight every problem that comes to you, but learn to embrace some of them and say like Jesus, “not my will but your will be done, Lord”
