Give God Control

Are you making that drastic decision due to pressure? Pressure is real but how you react under pressure, reveals the true nature of your heart.Let’s be real and no sugar coating!! Once in a while, we go through different kind of pressures, whether we like it or not, however our response is what really counts.
1.Getting wealthy quick pressure:- Maybe you are in business but your business is not thriving than your counter parts, who are dishing out tips to get tenders.I know it can be tempting to be swayed away and think that’s the right direction to take, but will  you sell your birth right by compromising your destiny, or will you be patient enough until God opens up the right doors and the right connections for you to do business??
2.Society pressure  –Am addressing this to young single ladies, who want a good life yet it’s out of convenience. Just because some young women who don’t know their identity and what they carry within them, are going out with rich men, in order to have a good lifestyle does not mean they have it all together. Trust me when I tell you, they are only trading their birth right for now, at the expense of their destiny.
3.Career Pressure-Just because so and so slept with the boss or so and so maligned someone to get laid off in order to get a job promotion, that does not mean God promoted them??They only comprised their birth right for something lesser which was limited to their own unlimited ability. Refuse your appetite to be awakened where Gods anointing is not flowing. If your ambition is not accompanied by God’s anointing, your intentions will spoil what you are trying to do and you will end up doing things that God never asked you to do. Always keep in mind, promotion is far much better when God initiates it and not when you try to initiate it. The best promotion only comes from God and honey! get this from me, it comes with honor.
4.Marriage Pressure-You know very well you are not supposed to be in that relationship, you are out of purpose, compromising left, right center, but due to family pressure, friends pressure and also age might be catching up with you, you end up selling your birth right by settling in a marriage union, which is convenient for the moment but too expensive for your destiny.
5.Social Media pressure: God is very clear in His word, we shall live by faith and not by sight, however no where in scriptures is it written, we shall live by accumulating debt. Social media is one medium where people are trying to portray lavish lifestyles and most people have been caught up in the trap of imitating, so and so at the expense of accumulating debt, which is far beyond their current means.
God is forever faithful to His promises, when He promised to bless you, He meant those words. However, before you took that loan to buy that expensive shoe, watch, dress, car, house or taking that expensive vacation, did you inquire from God or did you take that step due to pressure to fit in?

Living a life where you are accumulating debt due to pressure to live a certain life style, is absolutely not the will of God for us. God desires us to have the best from  a place of rest and not pressure.

The list is endless but what happens if your promise tarries yet you are under pressure?? You already have the promise, no doubt about that but things ain’t working out at the moment as you had desired. Will you allow your present circumstances scream louder than the promises of God for your future??
Let’s take look at Genesis 25:29-34 One day when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau arrived home from the wilderness exhausted and hungry. Esau said to Jacob, “I’m starved! Give me some of that red stew!” (This is how Esau got his other name, Edom, which means “red.”)“All right,” Jacob replied, “but trade me your rights as the firstborn son.“Look, I’m dying of starvation!” said Esau. “What good is my birthright to me now?”
But Jacob said, “First you must swear that your birthright is mine.” So Esau swore an oath, thereby selling all his rights as the firstborn to his brother, Jacob.Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and lentil stew. Esau ate the meal, then got up and left. He showed contempt for his rights as the firstborn.
Esau knew his place as the first-born son, yet due to his present situation which was temporal, he traded his precious birth right for a single meal. Can you believe, his pressure brew out from a place of starvation?? His uncontrolled impatience, appetite and lack of valuing his destiny, prompted him to give away his birth right.
At times pressures of life, can magnify our present situation and in one way or another, if we are not patient and keen to hear what God is saying at the moment, we can easily forget what God has already done in our lives  or we can give up on His promises and settle for convenient choices that will offer us temporal satisfaction, at the expense of our destiny.
Do you know in Hebrews 12:15-16 Make sure that no one is immoral or godless like Esau, who traded his birthright as the firstborn son for a single meal. You know that afterward, when he wanted his father’s blessing, he was rejected. It was too late for repentance, even though he begged with bitter tears.the word of God describes Esau as immoral and godless, for lack of valuing his birth right!!!
I know it’s easy to lose sight of the promise God gave you, especially when things are not happening according to your plan and timelines but are you fully aware, God has not walked with you till this far, to leave you at a place of making life choices, based on temporary pressures that you are currently facing!!!

You cannot be a control freak and trust God at the same time. You need to let go of the need to be in control and allow God to do things in His time and in His way.

Each and everyone of us has a great destiny but how many times have we missed out on a miracle, an open door or even a divine opportunity because of impatience and pressure ? Don’t go back for less just because you are too impatient for the best.The word of God is very clear in Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and don’t depend on your own understanding.
Parting Shot:-Whenever we fail to value God’s promises in our lives and end up settling for temporal fixes at the expense of our destiny, in one way or another, we might miss out on the big picture, of what God is about to do in our lives.With all due humility i challenge you my beloved,refuse to sell your birth right for temporal satisfactions and value your great ,bright yet promising future.

Relax, be at rest and let God handle that issue.

Am excited about your future!!!
