Understanding The Power Of Process – Part 1 – Triumphal Meal.
“Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. 3 Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.”
4 But He answered and said, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”
5 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written:
He shall give His angels charge over you,’ and, In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ ”
7 Jesus said to him, “It is written again, You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’ ”
8 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”
10 Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.”
Your success in life is determined by the process you pass through. You must pass through something in life to obtain your breakthrough. The beauty of gold is made through fire therefore life is not fulfill until it pass through a process. Baby is not delivered until the baby is processed for the period of nine (9) months in the womb.
Life is beyond butter and bread. Many people are in haste to accomplish life today in fact their prayer focus is divine speed to fulfill destiny at the expense of process. God is not an author of confusion therefore He has pre designed for every man a period in which he will be processed before he launch him out.
The success of Lord Jesus Christ during His earthly ministry cannot be fulfilled without the law of process at the wilderness.
What is a Process?
Process is a series of actions that produce something or that lead to a particular result. Process is a divine package where God train and prepare His own children for the future ahead. Process is a school of training and preparation for the future leaders.
There are lots of pains, troubles, stress, struggles, pressure ,tears, shame and insult during the process however there is a result behind every insult in fact the insult is permitted most times because is capable of producing tangible results.
Every man is a product of something. What produces you matters in life because it goes a long way to affect your destiny. Man is made in the workshop and not on the stage. Many people are interested in the stage and not the workshop. There is no short cut in life for every short cut will definitely cut you off from the plan and purpose of God.
“And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt: 18 But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt.
God did not permit them to go through the short cut because they don’t have what it takes to stand the test of time.
“Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.”
Matthew 4: 1
God did not allow His Son( Jesus Christ) to start His earthly ministry until He passed through wilderness. To become something in life you must understand the power of process. Process is a period of training in order to determine the real person inside of you.
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
Jeremiah 17: 9
The essence of process is to determine the position of your heart. The first man Adam failed because he did not pass through the process for he saw everything around him made available no wonder he was not able to manage the success.
Many people have messed up at the peak of their success because they did not go through the process. Process is a period of preparation before manifestation. Jesus Christ was taken to the wilderness to prepare Him for the task ahead.
It was in the wilderness he understood the importance of prayer and fasting, quite time, personal fellowship and the power of the Word. Wilderness is a place where man is made, where flesh is drained, where the will of God is discovered and of course how to live a triumphant life.
In the next edition we shall be looking at the importance of the Power of Process in fulfilling destiny.
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”
Your success in life is determined by the process you pass through.
