WHEN YOU WONDER WHY GOD DOESN’T DO SOMETHING TO ‘MAKE’ MORE PEOPLE SUPPORT YOU…

When you’re passionately pursuing your God given purpose…

When you’ve invested your time, money and reputation into what you believe God has called you to do…

When you’ve ‘put in the work’ hoping for certain results…

When you have ‘put yourself out there’ and taken risks, even having some of your efforts fail so you can learn, grow, redefine, and define your work…

You can sometimes feel frustrated when you aren’t getting the support, encouragement, affirmation, and acknowledgment you may think you have earned.

Okay. I’ll put myself out there for in a transparent moment, and maybe some of you will admit this with me…

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHY GOD DOESN’T ‘TOUCH MORE HEARTS’ TO ACCEPT, SUPPORT, RECEIVE OR SHARE YOUR EFFORTS?

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHY GOD DOESN’T DO SOMETHING TO CONVINCE MORE PEOPLE TO HELP YOU OR JUMP ON BOARD WITH WHAT YOU ARE SAYING, SINGING, WRITING, OR DOING?

I have.

I’ve thought those thoughts.

This blog is my ‘youngest child’, and I passionately want it to be read by and a blessing to millions. I want the world to be inspired by my wife’s music.

I have many personal efforts in my life that I felt would have garnered more support. There are times I’ve felt overlooked, ignored, unappreciated, and abandoned by some of the people who I thought would support me the most outside of family.

Have you?


When we have low moments, we aren’t alone. Some of God’s most anointed prophets sometimes after great moments of victory were left feeling abandoned and all alone…

1 Kings 19:9-10 (NKJV)

And there he went into a cave, and spent the night in that place; and behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and He said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?

10 So he said, “I have been very zealous for the Lord God of hosts; for the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left; and they seek to take my life.”


Even after performing supernatural miracles, Yeshua the Messiah, had many to desert Him, as stated in John Chapter 6 verses 66 and 67...

66 From that time many of His disciples went [a]back and walked with Him no more. 67 Then Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you also want to go away?”


And don’t forget that one, final human moment when the Lord said…

Matthew 27:46 (NKJV)

46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”

So, as I was experiencing a personal moment of ‘why won’t God touch more hearts to help me’ in some of my kingdom and personal efforts, it occurred to me, and I sincerely believed He dropped this in my spirit…


IF GOD DOESN’T FORCE PEOPLE TO ACCEPT OR HONOR HIM OR HIS CAUSE…

HE’S NOT GOING TO FORCE PEOPLE TO ACCEPT OR HONOR ME OR MY CAUSE!


God allows people to chose for themselves.

Yes, we plant the seeds. Yes, we do the work. Yes, God can even manipulate situations around us trying to help us decide…but the decision is always ours.

Being rejected was a prophesied sign of the Messiah. It was a core part of His suffering…

Matthew 13:53-58 (NKJV)

53 Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, that He departed from there. 54 When He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, “Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works? 55 Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, [a]Joses, Simon, and Judas? 56 And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?” 57 So they were offended at Him.

But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.” 58 Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

And, a core but often ignored part of our purpose is to share in His suffering, sometimes by being rejected. After all, it’s only fair…

1 Peter 4:13 (NKJV)

13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.

Philippians 1:29 (NKJV)

29 For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake,

Remember, the people who contended against Yeshua went back to their homes on the day of the crucifixion thinking they had one…and the Lord ALLOWED IT.

The fact is that if Jesus can patiently wait for His glory, we can wait for ours.

FOR THOSE WHO FEEL IT’S TAKING TOO LONG FOR THINGS TO ‘TAKE OFF’ FOR THEM…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

  1. I’m with you. I once thought I had fewer followers and readers and likes than others because God didn’t want many people reading so when I get that book deal or music deal then they would sell lots Now I say it’s because I don’t have time to interact enough and that’s okay.

  2. I’ve noticed that I regularly, usually every day, lately, have visits from two people in China, and they seem to be interested in only my Home page, where there is a picture of me, and a quick testimony of how I got saved. It seems they are interested in me, not in the gospel. I must have touched a nerve at their end, because I got their attention. Lol. God will use us in the way he decided we would be used, from the foundation of the world. Peter had never intended to deny Christ, but, he did three times, as was planned by the Father. God’s word never returns to Him void; it always accomplishes what he sent it out to do.
