Sometimes the answer is not "NO", but "Not yet, I am preparing you". God cannot plant blessings where the soil is not prepared because where the soil is not ready the blessing cannot blossom to its full potential. If God uses all of our life experiences to prepare us for the point where His anointing and favor meets our God-given skills, then there are going to be times when we must wait. In that season of waiting, enduring, and persevering we learn the valuable lessons that will allow us to operate in full capacity. Specifically, we practice the habit of releasing control of situations in our lives. Control is one of the most addictive, misused, and the gateway to evil and sin possessions on this earth. It causes us to doubt, forget, and disregard God and His word every day. Take a moment to reflect on areas of your life that are negatively affected by control and begin to release it to Him. You will see your life and relationships with others improve when you remove that component and that will be the blessing planted in prepared soil.
