If we are not careful, my friends, the devil will have us thinking that God is partial. Let me explain why in a scenario that you will understand: your friend goes to church like you do and everything they ask of God they receive. Unfortunately, you are still on the waiting list,still waiting on that house or that spouse or even that car. You realize that the more you ask the more others seem to get blessed but not you. Then you ask yourself, is it fair?
This is the number one trick of the enemy: the lust of the eyes, flesh and the pride of life ( 1 John 2:16). If you look closely you realize that all three occupy your mind so much that it consumes you and with that consumption you can’t hear from God because the road he needs to communicate with you is blocked and your ears are clogged like a sewer line.
Why do you think you deserve Gods blessings more than the other person? Do you know what a person does privately to get blessings? What their parents or grandparents did for them to receive blessing? I am sure many of Abrahams descendants don’t deserve Gods blessings but He made a promise to Abraham and God doesn’t break his promises( 2 Peter 3:9;Numbers 23:19).
So you think you are entitled to Gods blessings, may I ask what you are doing for you to feel that you deserve them? How many times a day do you pray for more than ten minutes? How often do you read the bible? Do you acknowledge Him in all your ways? Do you seek Him and his righteousness so that He can bless you? Do you know His commandments and are you keeping them all? Do you present your body as a living sacrifice that is Holy and acceptable to Him or have your sins separated you from God (Isaiah 59 :1 &2)?
Why do you feel that you deserve Gods unlimited favor when you are not living up to His standards. If you are not obedient to His word in the Bible or the standards His son Jesus Christ has set for us do you still think you deserve his favor. Speaking of son did you accept Gods ultimate gift of His only begotten son Jesus Christ ?( John 3 :16-17) . Now you may believe that God is partial but was our father almighty partial when He sent Jesus to die for our sins? What in all of creation could you want or even could compare to what Jesus gave up for us? His sacrifice for us was for us to receive forgiveness from our sins, to have a closer relationship with God and to have Eternal Life.
Have you thanked Him today? Have you thanked him for opening your eyes? We have to wise up my brothers and sisters because He did not have to sacrifice himself for you. How often do you praise Him or honored Him first with the things He gives you? So realistically, why would He give you the desires of your heart or open the windows of heaven and pour out His blessings upon you when you are not doing the things He requires from you? How do you expect him to give you what you want when you don’t talk with Him unless you want to acquire something or need help with an issue.
In Psalms 37:25 David says this; he was young and now that he is old;he have never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread’. You do not deserve His blessings because you are righteous, you deserve his blessings when you are righteous according to His (Gods) standards. Examine yourself and realize that if you are not receiving His blessings there is another reason and NOT because God is partial. The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle and easy, to be entreated full of mercy and good fruits,without partiality and without hypocrisy (James 3:17).God does not keep good things from His children (Proverbs 3:27).
