With Apostle Joseph Ziba
Respect God’s Process
Isaiah 46:10 NIV
”I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’”
The Bible tells us that God declares the end from the beginning. God ‘goes’ into your end [future] before you start and shows you what He sees and wants you to be before you ‘physically’ become it or before you get there.
This way of operation by God has been misinterpreted by some individuals and has caused problems in their lives. Such individuals have been fooled to start living the ‘greater life’ that God has showed them, instead of accepting the present reality of where they are now.
For instance, God may show them that they will become CEOs of big companies. Being fooled with such kind of vision of life, such individuals fail to pick menial jobs in the interim. As a result they keep on struggling daily; hoping that God will make them CEOs one day. This is so pathetic!
You need to understand that God is the God of process. God can’t take you to the top if you haven’t proved yourself faithful in ‘smaller’ matters. (Luke 16:10). Great giants in the Bible such as Jesus, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David et cetera, had to go through a particular process before they became great. You can’t be spared!
God takes you step by step so that so that when you get to the future (to the top), you can look back and thank Him. And also that you can respect those that are in the process that you went through.
Be humble and start from where you are. Don’t be too excited about the future such that you forget today. The Bible says: “Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.” (Job 8:7).
Beginning is usually small. But as long as you know that you’ve started with God, your end shall be greater! So, start your business now, start pursuing your career now, start your church now. Don’t wait until all conditions ‘seem’ to be in perfect order because if you do, you will wait until Jesus comes before you start doing something. And it will be a shame for you.
Precious Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, thank You for opening my eyes to your present truth. I thank You for where I am and I thank You for where I am going. I will start doing something where I am now whilst believing You for the greatness that I see ahead of me. I refuse to be too excited about the future and I choose to act now. I respect Your process.
