God does not build a beautiful airplane, make it take off fast on a runway and then eventually crash-land it. That is not God’s style of doing things. It’s either the devil behind it or the pilot misjudged somewhere and made a mistake. A lot of times, a gift or blessing you get from God, either physical or spiritual, is always good but the devil or human error or irresponsibility can affect that blessing. That is why it is important to guard your gifts and always protect your blessings.
Very often you have to put effort to make things work out in your life. Be it in business, relationships, marriage, work, ministry, and even with family. The Bible says every good gift comes from God above. “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17
Sometimes we blame the devil for things we are responsible for doing ourselves. Not every failure is from satan, some of it is you. For example, you cannot expect to earn without working with your hands, for God blesses the work of our hands. Deuteronomy 15:6-16. Also, you may not expect to do something great without the necessary training for it. think about it? that means when you work, expect to get paid, and when you get trained expect your skill to get you some kind of reward. The value of your skill ( your gift) is determined by how well you use it.
But other times it really is the devil. You can receive a good gift from God, and the devil can try everything and anything to take it away, or frustrate it but these threats seldom have any power over one who believes in Jesus Christ. Because the gifts and calling of God are without repentance Romans 11:29.
This means that God does not reverse a blessing. But be careful not to reverse it yourself thinking it’s just gonna fall from heaven. God forbid you to think like that. Protect your gift, your relationship, your marriage, your family, your business, your talent, your everything that God has blessed you with. Because believe me, when you put effort into it. You will soon reap the rewards. I just remembered a great verse in the bible.
“Don’t be misled–you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.” Galatians 6:7
They may try to take what you have produced due to your ability from God, but they can’t take what God has put inside you. It’s your responsibility to take of it. He has made you a steward. Protect your blessings. Do what it takes.
