This topic has been on my mind for a while now but I’ve never written on it. It seems that we are always praying to God for more and for increase. We always want something better. We want a better house, better job, better car, or maybe even better friends. We are always asking God for more. More money, more time, more influence. Not saying there is anything wrong with asking God for increase because it certainly is not. But, before you ask God for increase, I want you to ask yourself one question. What are you doing with the things God has already given you? Are you asking God for more money and you can’t even pay your tithes. Do you want a new job but you can’t even get to your current job on time. Why would God give you more to misuse? God is not gonna give you more money when you are not even honoring him with the little that you already have. Why would God give you a better car when you won’t even keep the one you have clean? Why would God take you to the next level in your career when all you do is sit at work and complain and slack off. And we could all make excuses why we do these things. You could say oh I am always late because of traffic or my kids move slow in the morning. Well, have you considered leaving home earlier or rearranging some things? God wants us to give our best and for everyone this is different. Just ask yourself the next time you are waiting on a blessing that seems to be taking too long, this could be blocking it. God will never give you more resources to misuse. Once God sees that he can trust you will small things, he will trust you with much more. Remember, in order to get to your promise land, you must be faithful in the wilderness.
