Two weeks ago, I was about to prepare lunch for my family, when I took out a fresh fish from the freezer. Suddenly my one year five months old daughter who stood by watching, started crying and demanding that I give her the fish to eat. I kept trying to tell her in my own way that the fish was raw, I needed to spice it up, cook and then take out the bones so it can be ready for consumption, but my toddler wouldn’t hear but chose to cry louder and even fell to the ground and no one was able to comfort her. I decided to ignore her, went ahead to do what was right and when it was ready, she had her fish and didn’t even remember all the drama she had put up.
The Holy Spirit ministered to me that this is how many of us cry for a blessing that is not yet ready. God is saying I’m spicing it up, cooking it and taking out the bones so you don’t get choked. If only my little daughter knew, she would have waited patiently instead of being anxious. (Phil.4:6) God is saying to someone here that you should be anxious for nothing, Be still and know that I am God I am spicing up that blessing so you will enjoy to the fullest.
Instead of begging God for a manageable husband, wait on the Lord (Isaiah 40:31), be patient while He prepares a Heaven sent man for you. Why are getting worried because you are currently unemployed, be patient because God is arranging that dream job on your behalf. Life is simpler, easier and stress-less if you leave everything to Him. Remember 1 Peter 5:7 “Cast all your worries on Him because he cares for you”.
Relax in the sitting room and let God prepare your sumptuous meal.
