It takes a lot of work to change your world at a scale that matters. It will appear sudden to your world, but as an insider, you would understand the work ethic it demanded. You have to stop thinking your glorious purpose will manifest itself suddenly, all at once. You have to stop thinking that the changes you want to see in your world will happen through an unexplainable series of random events. They might appear random and miraculous to the observer, but in reality, the events were neither unplanned nor random. Operating by the grace of God is not a substitute for hard work. In fact, the grace of God will make you work smart, for as long as you need to, and as hard as you can. The grace of God maximizes your work.
Apostle Paul wrote, “but by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me” (1 Corinthians 15:10 ESV). We see here that the grace of God is not a substitute for hard work. Rather, grace fires you up for hard work. Just because we can explain how the children of Israel fought battles and possessed their promised land, does not mean that the mighty hand of God was not upon them.
It always appears sudden and unexpected to the world. However, behind-the-scenes, God has set in motion the necessary processes required for the results we want. The righteous, selfless leaders we need in our world will not drop from heaven. God will work upon your heart and mould you into a great leader over time. Your problems are not going to disappear suddenly. You will outgrow them with time. The great and mighty things God promised to do through you will appear to the world suddenly, but like Moses, you would know that God had been preparing you for decades.
