SOME “BLESSINGS” WITH ALL ITS COST IMPLICATIONS

Psalm 106:13-15 NKJV
[13] They soon forgot His works; They did not wait for His counsel,
[14] But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, And tested God in the desert.
[15] And He gave them their request, But sent leanness into their soul.

1 Samuel 8:5, 7, 9 NKJV
[5] and said to him, “Look, you are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.”
[7] And the LORD said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.
[9] Now therefore, heed their voice. However, you shall solemnly forewarn them, and show them the behavior of the king who will reign over them.”

When Israel demanded for a king when it was not yet The will of God to give them a king, God gave them a king that would lead them astray, a king that would banish the witches of the land and still took his last meal in the witch’s house and slept on the bed of a sorcerer. He gave them a king that would continually live in disobedience and commit suicide in the end. He gave a king whose head would be captured by the enemies and hung in the shrine of an Idol.
….Because they insisted on having a king when they were still to be ruled by a Judge.

….Because they Demanded for a king and wanted to be ruled like other nations.
HE GAVE THEM A KING HE DID NOT WANTED TO GIVE TO THEM….
Similarly, they demanded for meat in the wilderness which the Lord did not wanted to give them. They cried and insisted on having what the Lord did not want to give to them.

And guess what…. THE LORD GAVE THEM THE DESIRE OF THEIR HEART…. BUT WITH ALL THE ACCOMPANYING TROUBLES AND LEANNESS OF SOUL.
Must you do what others are doing while God does not want you to do it? Must you have what your friends have while God does not want to give you? Must you covet what is not in the plan and purpose of God for your life? Must you twist the arm of God with your fasting and prayer to snatch from Him what He was not yet ready to give to you?
So next time, when you are praying for a provision be careful never to insist on some things the Lord never wanted to give to you.
When next you are fasting and praying to demand for some things, for some promotions and relocations, for some allocations of contracts and some earnest desires, MAKE SURE YOU FAST AND PRAY FOR ONLY WHAT THE LORD WOULD DESIRE TO MAKE YOU HAVE.

When you know the Lord has closed a door against you because He does not want you to pass through that door, DO NOT GO AHEAD PRAYING AND FASTING FOR GOD TO CHANGE HIS MIND.
Even Jesus Christ, in the Garden of Gethsemane prayed: “Thy will be done, Father”
So DO NOT INSIST THAT YOUR OWN WILL BE DONE AT ALL COST.
Do NOT demand for what you can not handle.

Do NOT demand in prayer and fasting for the money you can NOT manage.
Do NOT demand for the load you can not carry.
When Jesus provided a miraculous drought of Fishes for Peter’s boat, the Fishes were too many and the boat was sinking, so he quickly beckoned to the other empty boat to come and help in sharing the supply.
SOME MIRACULOUS PROVISION OF FISHES CAN SINK YOUR BOAT UNLESS YOU ARE READY TO SHARE THE BOOTY WITH ANOTHER EMPTY BOAT.
May I not pray and fast for a provision that will kill me.

May God never answer the Prayers that is not His will for my life.
May I not request from God what will give me life long troubles.
And If I ever requested for it, May the Lord never answer that prayers.
Stay Blessed.
