God Has To Screen You
Psalm 66:10 KJV For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.
Our God is a generous God. But as generous as He is. He doesn’t want His resources to be mismanaged or wasted. So by this, He screens whomever he wants to release His resources to so as not to give it out to a fool. Proverbs 21:20 KJV There is a treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise, but a foolish man spendeth it up.
The Kingdom resources I am talking about here is not limited exclusively to money. In fact, money is the least of all the resources. God is ever ready to give gifts to anyone who is ready. He generously gives gifts as described in 1 Corinthians 12.
Many at the manifestation of the gift of God see it as an avenue to make money. They’ve made themselves a descendant of Gehazi. Their eyes are heavy with lust and their hearts clouded with immortality. They have confessed God as their only true God but still, have Mammon in the depth of their hearts. They believe that the gift of God can be used to lord over others. For them, it is an avenue to cheat the innocent sisters. They monopolize the gift of God a this made God leave them at the low pedestal leaving them with their reprobate mind.
Before God would practically make Heaven’s treasury accessible to you. You would have gone through a series of screening as blood is been screened for viruses. As silver goes through the fire for purification, the Lord will try you with many challenges. He wouldn’t be there to pick you out but will be there to see you through. At a point in time, He will be silent but after all these trials. You will come out shining and God will be proud to release the keys to the resources of Heaven to you.
It’s so sad that many of us today love the happily ever after. We don’t want the hard times included in our stories. All we want is the good part. Job 2:10
The Screening tool of God is the challenge of life.
Let us pray: Father, help me to hold on till I become pure.
