Are there things in your life that you have been wanting? Maybe a new job, a bigger house, a new car, an updated wardrobe, or even a new Ministry? Whatever it is, can God trust us with it?
As I was thinking on this, I began to check myself as I was preparing for this blog post.
I heard my husband share a testimony in Bible study a few weeks ago. He said when he was working a secular job he would see these guys driving up to work in these really nice pickup trucks. Since he drove almost an hour to work every day in his little Honda car he noticed things like other vehicles. He said one day he was driving home and just praying and asking the Lord for a new vehicle. All of a sudden he felt a prompting to look at what he was driving and the shape that it was in! YES, it was a mess! He said he felt the Lord ask him, “If you you can’t take car of what I have already given you, how can I BLESS you with more?”
What an eye opener!! Many of us today are wanting more things or more time, but how are we treating what we already have? How are we using the time God gives us? Are we spending it watching too much TV, or (this is me!) on the internet, on Facebook or Pinterest or browsing those other “essential” sites too much???
I believe God is a God of Excellence! He is a GOD of ORDER!! I’ve been listening to Terri Savelle Foy on de-cluttering, and she quoted this scripture (which I Love) Genesis 1:31, “And God saw everything that He had made, and, behold, it was VERY GOOD.” Even He Himself had order, so I think that He expects the same from us!!
Right now I want more of God in my life! More Anointing!! But guess what? It takes more than just a few minutes a day or every other day to get what I want!! There’s a price to pay. Are we willing to pay the Price? If we want PROMOTION from God, it takes effort and persistence on our part!!
Yes, sometimes we lose focus. Ask Him to help us to get our focus back. Get on your knees and REPENT and start fresh!!
Write down your dreams and visions and keep them in front of you, so you can see them everyday. Pray over them. Ask God to help in areas of your life that you’re slacking in. I’m going to! I want Promotion in my life and the lives of my family!!
Be blessed on this Monday!! It’s a new day to Start Fresh!!
My Tip Of The Day: Set your goals today and write them down! Pray over them!! Remember, the number one key to success is Don’t Get Discouraged!!!
