As individuals we all have choices to make and those choices fall into 2 categories, and they are:
Everything we do in life is going to be influenced by these 2 categories. It started off in the Garden Eden and it will continue right up until the return of Christ.
When Joshua was addressing the nation of Israel, when they were progressing through the promised land he said:
Joshua 24 :8 - 15
8 And I took you into the lands of the Amorites on the other side of Jordan; and they made war on you, and I gave them into your hands and you took their land; and I sent destruction on them before you.
9 Then Balak, the son of Zippor, king of Moab, went up to war against Israel; and he sent for Balaam, the son of Beor, to put a curse on you:
10 But I did not give ear to Balaam; and so he went on blessing you; and I kept you safe from him.
11 Then you went over Jordan and came to Jericho: and the men of Jericho made war on you, the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Girgashites and the Hivites and the Jebusites: and I gave them up into your hands.
12 And I sent the hornet before you, driving out the two kings of the Amorites before you, not with your sword and your bow.
13 And I gave you a land on which you had done no work, and towns not of your building, and you are now living in them; and your food comes from vine- gardens and olive- gardens not of your planting.
14 So now, go in fear of the Lord, and be his servants with true hearts: put away the gods worshipped by your fathers across the River and in Egypt, and be servants of the Lord.
15 And if it seems evil to you to be the servants of the Lord, make the decision this day whose servants you will be: of the gods whose servants your fathers were across the River, or of the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living: but I and my house will be the servants of the Lord.
He was calling them to a decision, to be obedient or disobedient, but he was making his decision clear.
When you choose to obey, you are going to come against opposition and your decision is going to be challenged. However once you have made up in your mind that you are going to obey, God will make a way for you:
1 Corinthians 10: 13
13 No temptation has overtaken you that is unusual for human beings. But God is faithful, and he will not allow you to be tempted beyond your strength. Instead, along with the temptation he will also provide a way out, so that you may be able to endure it
God doesn't just leave us alone in our decision but he give us his Holy Spirit to lead us and guide us:
Galatians 5: 16
16 So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will never fulfill the desires of the flesh
Deliberate disobedience has consequences, God is not just going to let you continue to sin without punishing you because he loves you too much for that and the bible says God chastises those who he loves
12 because the Lord corrects the person he loves,
just as a father corrects the son he delights in.
When King David was deliberately disobedient with Beth Sheba and she got pregnant, the consequence of that disobedience was the baby died. Before that when King Saul was deliberately disobedient, the result of that was the kingdom was taken from him.
We all have choices to make and those choices we determine our futures. Everyday people are dying and going to a lost eternity simply because of the choices they have made. So choose this day who you will serve, will in be the gods of the false religions out there, will it be the god of wealth and lifestyle, will it be the god of self righteousness or religiousness. There are many gods you can serve, but as Joshua said, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”
People make choices when building their Reliv business, whether to be obedient or disobedient to the instructions given to them in order to be successful. We hear about the system ALL THE TIME, however it is a choice to obey or not. The result of disobedience to the system is a person does not grow their business, however the result of a person plugging into the system, with persistency, consistency and determination, we will be, that they will be successful.
You see, you have to be obedient to listen to your upline, you have to be obedient to listen in on the Monday Night call or come to the Tuesday night meeting. Obedience makes you turn up for Saturday morning training, active 3 ways calling. Consequently the result of obedience means, you will qualify for MATs School and you and your organisation will be at the Conferences.
So if you are being deliberately obedient to the system, do not complain when your business does not grow.
