It is and always has been:
The moment bees go out to forage to collect nectar and pollen, they are confident that the gift of flora is their because they understand and appreciate their task and gene make up.
Always remember this: God is not preparing the gift for you but He is preparing you for the gift.
Sometimes we may think we are ready for the blessing and to walk in His promises. Have you ever thought about the fact that you may be ill-prepared for that gift with your name on it just like the prodigal son was?
Patience is a virtue. There is no loss in trusting the Lord even if it seems He may be taking long. The bees work hard and fly thousands of kilometers for a mere teaspoon of honey. The reward is greater. Keep your eyes on the finish line. There is no shame in hard work and integrity.
