It is amazing how many people want God to do all of the work and feel their contribution can be as little as possible. This is why the prosperity gospel preachers have been so well received, because effectively their message is, its all on God, all we have to do is name it and claim it, slap it and grab it.
That type of preaching will always attract people who do not want to put the time in to learn the skills, laws and principles required in order to prosper. Most people treat God like a lottery ticket or a bank account that is constantly being withdrawn from and never or very little deposits made. However we have a part to play as well, David said these words:
Psa_34:1 A Psalm of David, when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed. I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
David understood even after making many mistakes, that he had a part to play in building a successful relationship with his creator.
Solomon said these words:
Pro_4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Solomon understood that even though God can give us the gift of wisdom, we also have a responsibility to go out and gain the right knowledge that God’s gift of wisdom can then direct effectively.
Joshua said these words:
Jos_24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
Joshua understood that is was not his environment or his challenges that determined his choices, but it was his attitude towards God that allowed him to make the right choices and he was determined to create the environment in his home that his family would be around the true knowledge of their creator.
All of these people understood they had a part to play and it wasn’t just all on God. If we take 1 step towards Gods he will take 10 steps towards us. God is looking for people whose heart is right, people he can trust, just like JOB.
God wants people who love him for who he is not just what he can give them. He has promised eternity to the right people and this life on planet earth is the testing ground to see if we qualify. This is why we go through challenges here so that what is truly inside will come out. It is only when we are tested that character is developed and true motive is exposed.
Can we praise him even when are feelings try to tell us we cannot sense him?
Can we trust him even when are eyes tell us this is impossible?
Can we be directed by him even when our ears hear conflicting messages to what his word says?
We have a part to play and that part will determine how successful we get through this life!
Parallel Business Principals
Building your Reliv business you have a part to play. Too many people come into our business and industry expecting something for nothing. They feel just because they invested their money to come in at what ever level they did, this automatically means they should be successful.
They do not understand that success requires effort, it requires consistency, it requires learning new skills and it requires vision.
Coming onboard the business at whatever level is you walking through the front door, now that you are in the house, you have a part to play in building the house and maintaining the house.
Also if God is the head of your house and you are doing the right things, why would you not be successful?
Are you going to have challenges building your house? You better believe it!
Are there going to have days when you feel like quitting? Absolutely!
Are there going to be times when you ask yourself, is this thing ever going to work? Probably.

Make sure your WHY is stronger than your WHY NOT
