Early To Rise
Many people lead very busy lives, from having to deal with our children and family commitments, to fulfilling our roles of employment. Our days can be quite full, so with all of this going on it can be very easy to push God to the back of the list if we are not careful.
However we need to clearly understand that God wants to be Lord over all of our lives, not just a part of it.
As with any relationship, if we do not spend quality time with God, then are relationship with him will not grow.
A good time to spend with God is early in the morning before all of the crazy schedule of the day starts. This is a time where you can focus without distraction and really hear from God. It can set the tone for your whole day and prepare you for the challenges ahead.
Gen 19:27 Abraham went early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the Lord earlier.
Jacob Worships God in Bethel
Then Jacob woke up during the night and told himself, “Surely, the Lord is in this place and I never knew it!”
Gen 28:17 In mounting terror, he cried out, “How scary this place is! This is nothing less than God’s house and the gateway to heaven!”
Gen 28:18 When Jacob got up early the next morning, he took the stone that he had used for his pillow, set it up as a pillar, drenched it with oil,
Gen 28:19 and named the place Beth-el, although previously the city had been named Luz.
Gen 28:20 Then he made this solemn vow: “If God remains with me, watches over me throughout this journey that I’m taking, gives me food to eat and clothes to wear,
Gen 28:21 and returns me safely to my father’s house, then the Lord will be my God,
Gen 28:22 this stone that I’ve erected in the form of a pillar will be God’s house, and I’ll give you a tenth of everything that you give to me.”
Psa_63:1 A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
There are many occasions in the bible where people rose up early in the morning to either seek God or hear from God.
The enemy would not want you to do this because he knows the closer you get to God, it’s the more dangerous you are to him. So he will try and bring distractions to you and tap into that part of you that wants pleasure to try and keep you in your bed. However God is faithful and if you make the commitment to seek him early, he will give you the ability to fulfill that commitment.
God wants to speak to us, he wants to guide us, he wants to see us progress, he is a loving father. However love is a two way thing and we have to do our part. Love causes you to go that extra mile and do things outside of your comfort zone and God is seeking a people that will love him for who he is and not just what he can give you.
We have to be mindful of our actions and motives because God see everything, we cannot hide these things from him, he will draw close to those who draw close to him.
Parallel Business Principles
Getting up early and start your day correctly and on a positive note is so important to having a productive day in building your Reliv business. Putting God at the head of our business is the best thing we can do for our businesses.
The bible says, “The step of the righteous man are order by the Lord” and this is why having that communication going with God is so crucial to our success.
It is amazing how one of the elements of the Reliv system is to wake up early on a Saturday morning and go to training. Saturday morning is a morning where the majority of people sleep late in their beds, whereas those people who are the successful business builders with Reliv on Saturday mornings are being empowered and networking.
God will not force anyone to get up early to seek his face and in the same parallel, you cannot force anyone to get up early to be trained.
Success and relationships are a choice.
