You have to participate in your own blessings. You have to do SOMETHING! It is amazing how people stretch their hands out for God’s blessing to just fall into them without preparation on their part. People talk about getting a degree, but they don’t take the necessary steps to do so. People talk about starting a ministry, but they don’t do anything toward the end. People talk about writing books, but they never pick up a pen to write the very first line. How are these things going to get done until you do something? How are you going to be blessed by God unless you do what He has commanded in His Word?
