God wants the best for us , His plan is for His goodness and mercy to be part of our lives daily. However, it would require our working with Him through His word  that would lead to our seeing the manifestation of His will in our lives.  The word of God says in Mark 4:26-29.
"And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.  But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.

Word of God is a seed (Mark 4:14) which planted into the soil of the human heart grows.  This process involves two main processes.
First, God’s Word has to be planted like a seed in our hearts. Just as a seed doesn’t release its life until it is planted into the ground, God’s Word will not set us free until we get it in our hearts. 
Second, the man who sowed the seed slept and rose day after day. It takes time for a seed to germinate. You can’t plant a seed one day and expect to see it growing the next day. Just because there’s nothing visible above ground doesn’t mean the seed isn’t growing. If you dig it up every day to see if anything is happening, it will be destroyed . That's what murmuring leads to, the death of dreams. Do not allow natural circumstances override your commitment to God's word. 

A farmer has to leave his seed in the ground and believe that it’s growing even though he can’t see it. Likewise, you have to have faith that the seed of God’s Word will do what it was designed by God to do: produce its fruit in its time. 
When we meditate in God’s Word, we are undergoing effortless change! We may not see ourselves growing, but we are-just like that planted seed is growing under the ground even though the farmer can’t see it!

Effortless change is impossible and it is happening all around us even as you read this now your finger nails would have grown . We receive effortless change by taking the seed of God’s Word and sowing it in our hearts. Then the Word will produce all the change we need.

The  orange tree does not travail to produce an orange, it just comes naturally and effortlessly. It may take  time, but it comes effortlessly. Likewise, it is natural for all true born-again believers to be like Jesus. This can only happen when we plant the seed of God’s Word in your heart.

Growing means to change to an improved version. Plant make constant changes as they grow . For the plant, it’s effortless; it just grows, and the change is evident to everyone. Your life should be just like that—green, growing, changing, and evident to the world. The plant never resolved to do anything. It just grows and produces fruit because of what it is. The Word of God is the same. When planted, it just produces—effortlessly.

Prayer, fasting, and giving offerings are no substitute to God's word in your heart.  Prayer and fasting are like water and fertilizer to a seed. A seed needs those things. But it is the seed that has the miracle of life in it.

The only effort on your part is to put God’s Word in your heart and protect and nurture it. Then God’s Word will produce the change. Receive grace for an unquenchable appetite for God's word in your heart for a life of  unlimited breakthroughs this year as you read this now in Jesus name.
