But Jesus, being aware of it, said to them, “Why do you reason because you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive nor understand? Is your heart still hardened? Mark 8:17
Have you ever wanted something so badly and didn’t receive it? You worked hard, did everything that was required, had all the necessary credentials but did not receive it. You prayed for it, you fasted for it, you spoke it and you thanked God in advance for it but you did not receive it. You felt like a fool, felt disgusted, felt like giving up and wondered why God didn’t allow you to have it after all you did. Well, I’ve been requested by God to tell you, “that’s not what He has for you.” He/she wasn’t the one He prepared for you, that job isn’t where He wanted and needs you to be, you were headed in the wrong direction and He had to re-direct you. God’s plan for your life has not and will not change and He wants only the best for you. Celebrate the nos and anticipate the yes.
“And when you have come in, you shall shut the door behind you and your sons; then pour it into all those vessels, and set aside the full ones.” 2 Kings 4:4
Everything that looks good isn’t necessarily for you. Everyone that makes a great pitch isn’t part of your destiny and every door that is closed is not rejection but redirection. Continue to work towards that which you desire and trust God for success. This may not be the time, you may actually not be ready and God knows that. It is better that you walk into the right door prepared than to enter unprepared and lose the opportunity to be what you were destined to be or do what you were purposed to do. Walk away and look forward. Your door is open, you just haven’t reached it yet.
Be patient and don’t give up,
Minister Deidra Bibb
