Gods favor & patience
In life sometimes we think we are doing a person a favor, but then it turns around to hurt us, I don't think we should bother anymore. it started a long time ago. Sarah gave Hagai her own husband to bear him a child, little did she know that Hagai will turn around and taunt her.
What I read today taught me a lot I would love to share, firstly God is a loving and I realize that sometimes he doesn't need our faith to perform his wondrous deeds. He promised Sarah a child, there she was laughing and faithless, but God is not man, he dint say. Oh you ain't getting no more child because you laughed, Instead he stayed sure and true to prove his words don't come back to him void.
Secondly, in life God prefers people to be loyal to their authority, because he knows all and see all, perhaps if he dint want hagai to be there, he would have taken her out of there. But he said go back to your mistress and submit to her authority, so even in our places of work, homes it's good to submit to authority, that is when God releases his blessings. You just have to be where he wants you to be to get blessed.
Thirdly, how patient God is. Seriously if I was the one a person keeps negotiating back and forth with, I may get upset and say, hey, look I've compromised enough and my decision is final. But thank God he is God and not man. Imagine how Abraham kept going back and forth negotiating with him about the people of Sodom and gomorrah , throughout i saw he was ever so patient and that demonstrates how deep Gods love is for his children, he is willing to make sure his children don't perish, you just have to yield and make yourself a vessel he can use.
