Respect the process

First, to all the people who follow my blog and the ones who just read it, thank you do much. You guys are awesome I’m every way. Thanks for the kind words and encouragement. I love you all and God Bless.

The way I choose my topics is I sit down early in the morning and reflect upon my previous day and now this particular morning. This is to say that there is a culmination of events that occur which inspires me to write about a certain topic. I allow God to deal with me on a personal level in preparing me to write. What’s been on my mind lately is the story of Joseph and the process he endured in reaching is purpose. For most of us, we wouldn’t like to experience what Joseph experienced. It’s a good thing God doesn’t ask us if we want to go through the process. I for one probably would’ve have avoided the question. The process is meant to prepare you for the pressure that comes from people when you achieves your purpose. Not everyone is going to appreciate you, not everyone is going to like you. Therefore the process allows you to bypass your tendencies to please other people and it then institutes a heartfelt passion for pleasing God. We must show respect for the process. If we endured the difficulties of learning how to run a business, when a business is given to us and it is successful, we will then look back and appreciate the process. The process is not nice, it’s not comfortable…sometimes the process makes you cry and it discourages you. There are people who have given up during the process, there are people who have cursed God during the process. The process oftentimes produces disappointment following disappointment, heartbreak following heartbreak. This happens so much that if we are not careful, we will mistake the process for failure. We know Joseph went through the process. The Bible says He was sold, lied on and thrown into prison. For anyone today who goes through this, your only logical assumption might as well be that God has abandon you. That is a lie and most times that’s what the enemy tells you while you’re going through your process. When Joseph was in potiphar’s house, God gave him favor. When he was in the prison God gave him favor and finally when he went to the palace God gave him favor. If you remember nothing else, remember that God is in your process with you. No matter what you’re going through today, respect the process and know that He has His hands on you. You haven’t failed and Isaiah 41: 9 says…I have chosen you and have not cast you off, Psalm 138:7-8 says…Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me. The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, endure forever—forsake not the works of Your own hands. God has not forsaken you, He’s in your desert, He’s in your pit and He’s in your prison…trust Him and He’ll lead you to your palace. Gods hands are on you, Be Blessed.
