The world would want you to believe that God is either dead or never existed, this is to further promote their anti-christ agenda. However, God is very much live today, he is the same yesterday, today and forever more!
Rev_1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
God is working of levels that we cannot full understand, he knows the outcome of every scenario of every situation and this is why as believers we can take comfort in Roman 8:28
Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Sometimes our situations can seem bleak and it may feel like God has abandoned us, however that is the time God is truly working on our behalf and it is our faith that keeps God’s hand moving over our lives.
Outside of Jesus, I don’t think there is no one else in the bible that suffered more than Job. To loose all of your children and your business in one day and then your own health rapidly decline, that cannot be easy. Many people at this point would blame God and say “If there is a God, why is this happening?” People are then open to all of the negative voices out there about God. This is why the enemy uses situations surrounding death or sickness or financial stress as a perfect time to attack. In Job’s case, he used his wife:
Job 2:9 Job Refuses to Curse God
Then his wife told him, “Do you remain firm in your integrity? Curse God and die!
We have to be able to trust God no matter what, as that is the thing which is going to bring us through the challenge:
Job 2:10 But he replied to her, “You’re talking like foolish women do. Are we to accept what is good from God but not tragedy?”
Throughout all of this, Job did not sin by what he said.
Job was not aware that it wasn’t God doing all of this but Satan and because God knew his heart, he was allowing Satan temporary access to Job to prove a point to Satan:
Job 2:1 Satan’s Second Attack on Job
Some time later, divine beings again [Lit. later, the sons of God] presented themselves to the Lord, and Satan accompanied them to present himself to the Lord.
Job 2:2 The Lord asked Satan, “Where have you come from?”
In response, Satan told the Lord, “From wandering all over the earth and walking back and forth throughout it.”
Job 2:3 The Lord asked Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one like him on earth. The man is blameless as well as upright. He fears God and keeps away from evil. He remains firm in his integrity, even though you have been urging me to overwhelm him without cause.”
Job 2:4 Satan answered the Lord, “Skin for skin! The man will give up everything that he owns in exchange for his health.
Job 2:5 However, stretch out your hand and strike his bones and flesh, and he’ll curse you to your face, won’t he?”
Job 2:6 Then the Lord told Satan, “Very well then, he is under your control. Just preserve his life.”
Job 2:7 So Satan left the Lord’s presence and struck Job with terrible boils from the sole of his feet to the top of his head.
Job 2:8 Job took a broken piece of pottery to scrape himself while sitting among the ashes.
We only see the natural; we do not know what is going on in the spirit realm, which is a lot more real than the physical realm, because every physical manifestation has a spiritual beginning.
God was still working on Job’s behalf even through the test, because Satan still had restrictions, he could not take Job’s life.
As Christians we are called to walk by faith and not by sight, because many times our senses and emotions can deceive us, but our faith is what keeps us connected with the source of life, who is able to carry us when we feel we can no longer carry on.
God is very much alive and he is interested in ALL aspects of our lives, he has given us all of the tools to get through this life, from his written word, to his spirit. He has also given us direct access to him through prayer, which we can use as an offensive weapon as well as a defensive weapon. So we need to know what we have in our hands and whom we serve!
Parallel Business Principals
The principal of knowing what you have in your hands is very important in order for a person to be successful in Reliv, because if you don’t fully grasp that, you will just treat it like any other business opportunity out there and you might as well be selling cheaper utilities!
However Reliv is far deeper than that and a person has to have the eyes to see and the ears to listen in order to full grasp what they have with this company.
Many people will try and talk you out of the business; sometimes you may even try and talk yourself out of the business. However this is when the true motive of why you are building your Reliv business will be tested the most.
So know what you have and don’t let anyone steal that from you.
