When you see the finished product, you might not know the process that it went through to be that nice looking piece you want to possess. Whereas it is easy to judge the product without minding about the process, those who were part of the process see and know better. Likewise in spiritual matters, there are those who are wondering what is happening and others who are always critical of what they see, simply because both have never been part of the process . It is the will of God that we partner with Him in the process to bring forth precious products in all aspects of life. The product can be the miracle, restoration and promotion that you need.
At the cross, Jesus cried, ‘it is finished’! His work was accomplished and from that time it became possible for all those who will believe in Him to enjoy a life of victory. However, miracles are not magic; they are operated on biblical principles and accessed by faith. There is no other way, believe and receive. Stand on God’s word and see it produce even in seemingly impossible situations. This is the process, putting your faith into action, putting the word of God to work. The process involves positioning yourself to receive all that Christ purchased for you. Have you ever read; “Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours”1 Corinthians 3:21. “Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy”1 Timothy 6:17. The emphasis that I want you to see is; all things are given to us to enjoy . Jesus went through the process to give us the product of abundant life, life of victory with all spiritual blessings. On our part, the process is far easier and not dependent on our perfection; it is called positioning ourselves to receive. It is simple, but many are unwilling to partner with God because they entirely rely on their efforts.
On a negative side, there are those who would rather engage in destructive processes, rather than constructive processes which bring out the best in others. Even in our personal lives, we can press a destructive button of negative processes like; complaining, negative-talk, double-mindedness and gossip. You can look at certain patterns (process) and automatically know the final outcome. The product will always give you an idea of the process. Make up your mind, not to engage in negative processes, since you will not like the product they birth. The process is like sowing, and the product is the inevitable harvest. Preach the gospel, avoid the gossip that is how you will spread God’s love. The bait of gossips is, ‘I have a long story about so and so’, but it is a wrong story. Don’t listen, next time you’ll be the target. Walk in love. Even when your desired miracle is still not in view, don’t engage in the habit of complaining and negative-talk, keep on the process of faith; exercising your faith, it will surely work for your good. One of the best processes that will assure you great products in the end is fervent praying. The Amplified Bible renders it; ‘The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]”James 5:16. It brings out the fact that it is continued prayer. How many times, do we pray and give up before actualizing our answer. You cannot use being busy as an excuse from praying continuously. If you are not busy to play, you shouldn’t be busy to pray. If you are not busy to talk to friends for hours, surely, you shouldn’t be busy to talk to God daily. Habits are processes that will never disappoint in delivering the corresponding products.
Today choose to cultivate habits that will assure you of the products that Christ purchased for you. Make up your mind, not to spread the gossip, but the gospel. Choose that as you play you will also make time to pray. Just as you value human relationships, prioritize your relationship with God above any other. Upgrade in life, and keep yourself updated with great revelations from God’s word. This will enable you not to be outdated and irrelevant in spiritual matters.
