As Christians we are supposed to live our lives by faith and not fear, because faith is what causes God's hand to move in our lives, where as fear in the dark room that produces all of our negatives.
The time when you know you have faith is when you can rely on God at times when you know you have reached the limitation of you own ability. When you cannot predict the out come and it seems impossible to you and yet you can trust God in it and praise him through it, that is when you know your faith is real.
Many people will say they have faith, but at the slightest challenge that comes along they fall to pieces. Now I know we are all human and as such we have to constantly be killing that lower nature that always tries to rise up. This is why God left us his Holy Spirit to support us in these challenging times. We have the ability to encourage ourselves in the word just like David did, which in turn stir our faith and causes us to trust God more:
1 Like the desire of the roe for the water- streams, so is my soul's desire for you, O God.
2 My soul is dry for need of God, the living God; when may I come and see the face of God?
3 My tears have been my food day and night, while they keep saying to me, Where is your God?
4 Let my soul be overflowing with grief when these things come back to my mind, how I went in company to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with the song of those who were keeping the feast.
5 Why are you crushed down, O my soul? and why are you troubled in me? put your hope in God; for I will again give him praise who is my help and my God.
6 My soul is crushed down in me, so I will keep you in mind; from the land of Jordan and of the Hermons, from the hill Mizar.
7 Deep is sounding to deep at the noise of your waterfalls; all your waves have gone rolling over me.
8 But the Lord will send his mercy in the daytime, and in the night his song will be with me, a prayer to the God of my life.
9 I will say to God my Rock, Why have you let me go from your memory? why do I go in sorrow because of the attacks of my haters?
10 The cruel words of my haters are like a crushing of my bones; when they say to me every day, Where is your God?
11 Why are you crushed down, O my soul? and why are you troubled in me? put your hope in God; for I will again give him praise who is my help and my God
If you look around you, you will be distracted.
As the bible says “Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God” Romans 10:17
The Holy Spirit can only draw out from you what you put in, this is why it is so important for a Christian to read and study the word of God.
The enemy's primary weapon against the believer is fear because he knows if he can get us to live a life of fear, he can paralyse us and stop us from fulfilling God's plan for our lives. So in order to do that, he knows he has to stop us from praying and reading God's word. Then he tries to stop us from fellowshiping with other believers, all of this to move us away from God's covering so he can attack us. But as the bible states in Psalms 91 verse 1-2
1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress
God wants to use you, but he cannot use a person is full of fear, you see without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6)
Many times people are so fearful of offending people, that they are unaware that they are offending God. So you have all of these political correct statement that are an attack on God's true nature and his message.
As Christians we need to be bold to stand up for the truth of God and that is where true freedom will be attained
32 and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free
So we need to push through the fear boundary and be like Simon Peter who was willing to go against all of his natural senses and intellect and step out of the boat and trust that just as long as his eyes were set on Jesus, he could accomplish the impossible and walk on water!
Parallel Business Principals
This principle is so important when building your Reliv business, because fear will kill your business. If you are full of fear, you will never be able to recruit business partners and you will never be able to get customers. You see when you are fearful, you project that to the person you are speaking to and people can not believe someone who speaks like that.
You have to be bold in your speech so the person will believe you, you have to be confident in your speech so that what ever the person come back to you with, it does not faze you. When a person is new they are in the process of developing that and this is way it is so important for them to use their upline support team who already have this boldness and confidence.
Fear will stop you from prospecting because in the back of your mind is that constant question “What if they say no?”
A person with faith has that constant anticipation in their mind of “i can't wait to start helping them when they say yes!”
People of faith become successful, where as people of fear will fail every time.
The biggest fear battle that a person is going to face in this business is the internal fear battle of the unknown and this is why plugging in the Reliv system is so important, because the more you plug into the system, the more faith you are going to develop and the more confident you are going to be about being able to succeed in this business.
Remember faith comes by hearing and when you constantly hear the success stories of people on the products and in the business and you constantly hear how your upline answers questions and deals with objections, as you put people in front of them, the more your faith in what you are doing will grow.
God wants you to be successful in your Reliv busines because as you put him first as you are progressing, he will be getting of the glory and you will not be proud and arrogant, strutting around like a peacock wanting to show your feathers.
