Apostle Grace Lubega
Galatians 4:1-2(KJV); Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.
The divine law of process works hand in hand with tutors and governors. These tutors and governors may be people or they may be circumstances.
Sadly, however, some Christians are so desperate to escape from tutors and governors. These tutors and governors are important and God allows them into your life for a purpose.
Laban was a tutor to Jacob. If Jacob had not served Laban, he would have affected his destiny. Under Laban, he had to learn the importance of hard work, patient endurance and respect for authority even when that authority abuses your efforts and dedication.
Imprisonment was a tutor to Joseph. If he had left prison early and run back to Canaan, he might never have had the opportunity to be Egypt’s Prime Minister.
I know you might be under fire of some sort but don’t be too desperate to jump out of it. It might be the fires of job pressure, the fires of a strained relationship or the fires of persecution in ministry. Stay. Rest. It is not a destroying fire. It is a refining fire. You will come out better.
If you choose to quit now, to walk out of that marriage, to leave that job or to throw in the towel over that business, you will have chosen the path of least resistance. This path leads to a life of mediocrity and will cause you to settle for much less than God desires for you.
Respect the process and endure the heat. For the sake of your future and those who will learn from you, don’t give up! Remember that through it all, God is with you.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The divine law of process works hand in hand with tutors and governors. These tutors and governors may be people or they may be circumstances. Respect the process and endure the heat. For the sake of your future and those who will learn from you, don’t give up.
PRAYER: Father, I am thankful for this Word. You are my strength and firm foundation. No matter what I am going through, I know that I will come out better on the other side because You are with me. I am enlarged even as I wait for greater days. In Jesus’ name, Amen
