You remember that time you passed a beautiful state of the art car, you touch it’s sleek body, feel the smoothness, smell it’s “newness” and you turn to your friend and say “I love this car… I wish I can get it.”. You still remember passing that beautiful building, you notice a young lad at the balcony dancing to the tunes coming from his walkman and you say to yourself “I love this house… I wish I can build it.”

:

Have you come across an exquisite cuisine? What did you do? Your mouth became more wet as you hoped you could afford the food on a good day.

:

Let me take it a bit further… Have you ever seen yourself in a situation where you are so much in love with someone, you feel the whole world about him/her and you say to yourself “it must be him/her… I wish he/she can be mine.”. 

:

So… After all those fantasies, how are you doing now? How is the market going? The car… Yes… that one you touched years ago and have wished to buy… have you gotten it? Are you still planning to buy it? What about that house you saw, are you on the plans of erecting such epitome of magnificent excellence? Have you started the foundations? How many blocks have you moulded? That is if you have a land where you can get the job done.

:

The food nko? Have you changed diet? Are you on a slim fit program? 

:

That person you felt you can’t do without, what about him/her? Have you finally gotten him/her? Are you now married to him/her…

:

I don’t know your answer to all of those questions, if yes, how did you get all you wanted? By fasting and prayer?  I’ve got a message to share with you in just few lines. That you wish to have it doesn’t mean you can have it.

:

We all love good things, we all love good people, we all love it when it is beautiful. We don’t just love it, we want it. But hello… we don’t just get something because we want it or wished for it. We may want it badly but it doesn’t mean it’s going to come. Someone will say I don’t have faith… really? Faith doesn’t work by just wanting something… Faith without working it out is a practical unseriousness and will never yield result. Yes, what you want may not even come when you work on it but at the end, something better comes. See, you will not always have what you want but you’ll surely get what you need when you didn’t just relax waiting for your wish to come to pass.

:

That car may not come, that house may not come, that food may not get on your table and that person you desire may not be yours… That is because horses are not wishes and that’s why beggars are not riding.

:

You want a car, house and food? Work for it. Yes… I mean work! You think faith makes meaning without work? What about that person you so much adore? If you want him/her you must work on it too! You think they can fly into your life just like that without talking, making some sacrifices and showing them reasons to give you a chance? God loved the world so much and He didn’t just say “I wish I can have my people back”… Even without seeking for our approval He sent Jesus to die on our behalf as a proof of His love. (John 3:16)

:

But… As you work, always know when certain things aren’t supposed to be. Don’t just work towards getting that car or building that house… Work towards solving needs. You can’t be getting 30,000 ,monthly and be planning to buy a car… No! You need to find other means and invest what you have and at the end you can boldly buy what you want and where you want it… that is if you made good investment.

:

How about relationships? You don’t hope things work out without making attempt. But you must know when certain things aren’t yours. When they are not yours, rise up and go for adventure… Go and discover what belongs to you.

:

So… my simple message is this: 

  1. You may not always get what you want.
  2. If you want it, work for it.

  3. When you work for it and you’re still not getting it, work for something better.

  4. You may want the good but you need the better. If the good isn’t for you, the better will come.

:

Sometimes look away from what you want and begin to consider what you really need. It becomes much more easier when you are connected to Jesus. If you are a believer in Jesus, you receive the ability to be directed by God towards doing the right thing. Mind you, it’s not like God will start controlling you like a robot! No! Rather, you will always be fed with ideas and informations from above but the choice to apply it is still yours.

:

The rule remains… if you won’t work it out, you can’t have it.

:

If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat.” 2 Thessalonians 3:10 ESV

Have a blessed day
