With every action there is a reaction, it is the one thing we cannot escape from, it is God's law of Sowing and Reaping.
Many of the negative experiences we have may have been avoided had we made better choices.
We can blame other people when things do not go our way, but the reality is a lot of the time it is our fault. We expose ourselves to things we really should not be exposing ourselves to and as a result later on down the line Satan can use it as ammunition to attack us.
Many men at some point in their lives exposed themselves to pornography and before they were a Christian it was not an issue. However, then they get saved and they are trying to live right, but they find that they are struggling with lust and the availability of elicit material is everywhere:
On their phones
On their computers
On their TV
Images pop up that they where not expecting, which triggers memories of previous things that they exposed themselves too.
The initial act before they got saved of watching pornography is now having a knock on effect, even in their new life. That choice was initially their fault. However because we serve a God of grace, he gives individuals the strength to overcome the flesh and it's desire:
16 So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will never fulfill the desires of the flesh.
17 For what the flesh wants is opposed to the Spirit, and what the Spirit wants is opposed to the flesh. They are opposed to each other, and so you do not do what you want to do
As Christians we have to be careful what listen to and what we put in front of our eyes, because our eyes and ears and gateways to our souls:
Psalms 141: 4
Incline not my heart to any evil thing, To practise deeds of wickedness With men that work iniquity: And let me not eat of their dainties
2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me?
I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes:
I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.
4 A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person
King David, when he should have been out at battle with his men stayed at home and while at home he look out of his window and saw a woman bathing. He should have turned away, because it was not something he planned to do, but because he liked what he saw, he continued to look, which stirred up emotions in him and before you know it, he was sleeping with another mans wife and eventually murdered him. That is how dangerous looking at the wrong thing can be.
Sometimes we try to justify our behaviour instead of holding up our hands and saying, yes I messed up and it was my fault.
However repentance brings liberation and that is why the enemy does not want you to do it, but he wants you to condemn yourself:
1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit
Today is a new day, so move forward in the newest of life and do not let your past dictate your future. Ask God to cleanse your mind so that you think on good things and do not, through your actions dig up old rubbish!
In your Reliv business you are going to come across people that have been in Network Marketing before or you yourself may have been in Network Marketing with previous companies. Sometimes the fear of failure is so great simply because they failed in the previous opportunity. So all of the thoughts and memories of that keep on coming back to them.
This is why it is so important to plug new people into the system as quickly as possible and it is also so important to stay plugged in, so the reality of the stories can combat those old thoughts.
You need to be around positive people and hearing positive messages, because if all you are doing is exposing yourself to negative people and negative messages, eventually your passion for reliv will die.
Be careful what you watch and what you listen to about Reliv, let reality of what is going on guide your actions.
