The recurring theme in the word of God is that there is consequence for all actions. Obedience brings prosperity and disobedience brings calamity. There are some inbetween that we cannot explain other than the act of God, like when Jesus disciples asked him about the man blind from birth, was it his mother that sinned or his father and Christ responded that neither but that the work of God may be made manifest.
John 9:1 Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth.2 And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”3 Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.
2 Chronicles 31:4 Moreover he commanded the people who dwelt in Jerusalem to contribute support for the priests and the Levites, that they might devote themselves to the Law of the Lord. 5 As soon as the commandment was circulated, the children of Israel brought in abundance the first fruits of grain and wine, oil and honey, and of all the produce of the field; and they brought in abundantly the tithe of everything……Verse 10..“Since the people began to bring the offerings into the house of the Lord, we have had enough to eat and have plenty left, for the Lord has blessed His people; and what is left is this great abundance.”.…..16 ..Besides those males from three years old and up who were written in the genealogy, they distributed to everyone who entered the house of the Lord his daily portion for the work of his service, by his division,……18 and to all who were written in the genealogy—their little ones and their wives, their sons and daughters, the whole company of them—for in their faithfulness they sanctified themselves in holiness. Verse 20 Thus Hezekiah did throughout all Judah, and he did what was good and right and true before the Lord his God. 21 And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, in the law and in the commandment, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart. So he prospered.
Friends, are you wholeheartedly serving God in Spirit and truth? Does it seem nothing is working for you and you are beginning to wonder why? Have you sought God’s face? You have promises and its taking too long you presume? Wait for it! Are you beginning to let doubt seep in? Don’t please, for the promise is for an appointed time, it will not tarry but come at the appointed time. Encourage yourself like David did.

God is working out those long standing issues of your life. You are for His glory, the totality of your being is for the glory of your Father in heaven.
Oh my friend, there is no happenstance with our God. He planned everything long ago, before the foundation of the earth was laid. God knew you before you were conceived, He has not forgotten you. Hold on still! The carrier of good news is at your door. Yes! Wait for it, can you hear the footsteps, can you smell the fragrance of His presence? Tune up your antenna friends, I hear the rain falling! Your seed will bud and you will have abundance of all that pertains to life and godliness, your barn shall be filled up. All the ditches you have made will be filled up. Can you feel the tiny seed in your womb, fluttering of butterfly? You are carrying and will bring to birth? Be encouraged friends, God is working things out for you. You will prosper in all division of your life.
Dearest, you can expect the above only if your trust is in the Lord Jesus. To expect without commitment is at best foolishness. You have to be aligned with heaven. Accept Jesus Christ into your life today. He loves you!
