For some time now, I have been asking our heavenly Father to give us (the Church Vases d’Honneur) some sound system equipment to avoid spending a lot of money on renting for our gospel crusades and large gatherings. Is this not for His glory? However, I did not understand why the Father was delaying in answering me until the day He gave me an answer. He opened my eyes and said to me: “Mohammed, the sound system I want to give to the Church Vases d’Honneur is very powerful. First of all, pray that the technical team in charge of taking care of this equipment will be able to manage such equipment”. I then understood that within the church, we did not yet have the maturity needed, technically speaking, to properly manage the blessing we were expecting! This was confirmed when we brought in a sound expert to train the technical team. We realized that we still had a lot to learn. Without this learning, we would not have been able to take care of the gift that the Father was going to give us.
Beloved, as a parent, even if you could afford it, would you give your 10-year-old son a car, even if he begged for it day and night? No! Simply because you know he’s not old enough to drive a car! If you gave him the car, it could kill him! Even if he reached the age of majority, would you allow him to drive your car without a driving license? No!
You are praying for marriage but do you have the strength of character, the self-control, the necessary temperament and cooking skills or – if you are a man – do you have the material means to manage your home? Doesn’t your touchy nature make you rather immature to manage a home?
You want the Father to give you the promotion you are so longing for. But, do you have the technical and managerial skills to run the company or department you are working for? You are asking the Father for a big house, but are you able to take care of the flat you are living in?
So there are things that you are not receiving in time from the Father because you do not have the maturity to have them. God does not want sorrows to be added to your blessing. Rather, he wants the blessing to make you rich (Proverbs 10:22). “Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all, but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father”, says the Bible in Galatians 4:1-2. The Lord expects you to become mature, to acquire experience in order to possess, in due time, the glorious inheritance that He has in store for you. Therefore, accept his teachings, accept to learn from him, and let him train you. Thus, He will equip you spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, etc. Become mature in the area where you expect a blessing from your heavenly Father. You will then be able to enjoy your inheritance. The sooner you are mature, the sooner the Father will answer you!
May God bless you Beloved
“For I also was a son obedient to my father, and loved in the sight of my mother: who spoke and instructed me, saying, Let our speech be fixed in thine heart, keep our commandments, forget them not: and do not neglect the speech of my mouth.
