Walking In God’s Favor: For I can do everything God asks me to with the help of Christ who gives me the strength and power. Philippians 4:13 (Message)
The Struggle Is Real; Give People Grace To Grow
How serious are you about becoming the person God designed you to be? Many times you say words with your lips that are inconsistent with your actions. Why is there so often a disconnect between what you say and what you do?
The answer to this questions is not the same for everyone. For some, its just lip service, but for so many others it has sincerely been a struggle to do the things you know to do. Can you relate to Paul when he says in the Bible “For the good that I would, I do not; but the evil which I would not, that I do.” Romans 7:19 (KJV)
For Ardella and myself, the journey out of financial bondage has been a long, tedious one, and the struggle is real. There have been times when we felt like we were treading water, making no progress at all. Then there times in which we would take one step forward and two steps backwards.
We Believe Prayer Is The Most Important Conversation Of Your Day
What is it, that motivated us to keep going, even when we could not see the light at the end of the tunnel? We have two answers for that question; prayer and Bible promises.
Powerful conversations with God has given us strength, power, and wisdom to make tough decisions and change our lifestyle. Listening to God’s Spirit and reading the Bible has given us hope when we felt hopeless or discouraged. We remained faithful to Bible promises even when it looked like it was impossible.
Wherever you are in your financial journey, find a Bible promise that you can use for whatever situation you find yourself in. The Bible contains over 2,000 promises concerning your financial victory and one has been tailor made for you at this moment in your life.
Invest In Yourself; Do Your Work; Your Time Will Come
You have a God who is bigger than your problems. He knows the beginning and the end. He is personally concerned about your needs. How can you not succeed? There is no limit to what God can do in the lives of faithful stewards.
When you begin to experience success and victory, be sure to recognize God from Who all blessings flow. Resist the tendency to feel like you did it by yourself. Remember the words of Wernher von Braun. ” I have learned to use the word “impossible” with the greatest caution.”
