Allow God To Direct You!
We read this scripture and quote it all the time:
Psa_37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
But do we really believe it, or if we do, do we really operate in it?
God has seen the end from the beginning and everything in between, nothing can take him by surprise, this is why we need to trust him and be guided by him. We live in a world of wicked people, the bible calls them the children of disobedience:
Eph 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
If we are not careful we can give these people access to our lives and put ourselves in positions we need not have put ourselves in had we been directed by the Lord. However God is so gracious, he allows us to make those mistakes, so he can establish his truth in us that is unshakable, but often times that lesson can be very expensive:
Isa 39:3 Isaiah Rebukes Hezekiah
Then the prophet Isaiah came to King Hezekiah and asked him, “What did these men have to say? And from where did they come to you?”
Hezekiah replied, “From a distant land—they came to me from Babylon.”
Isa 39:4 “What did they see in your palace?” he asked.
“They saw everything in my palace,” Hezekiah replied. “There is nothing in my treasuries that I did not show them.”
Isa 39:5 Then Isaiah told Hezekiah, “Listen to this message from the Lord of the Heavenly Armies:
Isa 39:6 ‘The days are surely coming when everything in your palace and all that your ancestors have stored up to this day will be carried off to Babylon. They will come in, and nothing will be left,’ says the Lord.
Isa 39:7 ‘Then some of your own sons, who will come from your loins, whom you will father, will be taken away to become eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.’”
When we are not being directed by the Lord the enemy can use that as an occasion to take our things, often that can be our material things, our health, our relationships or anything else we hold dear.
Application of the word of God is a defense against such things and this is why it is so important that we are doers of the word and not just hearers of the word.
We need to operate in the Fruits of the Spirit Galatian 5:
love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
Gal 5:23 gentleness, and self-control
Understand that we have an enemy who is an expert in luring people away from their covering:
Eze 28:14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
Eze 28:15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
Covering is he specialty, so he knows in order for him to effect us, we have to move from underneath that covering:
Psa 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
However if we make a mistake and we fall, we do not have to beat ourselves up about it, all we do is recognize the mistake, repent and move on and he is faithful and just to forgive our sins:
1Jn_1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
A lot of times people let the mistakes of the past stop them from moving forward in the future, but as Christians we need to understand if God is willing to forgive us, then we should be willing to forgive ourselves. Also if we truly learned from our mistakes, we will truly allow God to direct us in the future and be more sensitive to his voice of direction or warning.
Parallel Business Principles
The challenge when building a business like Reliv is, you will come across people that may have started some kind of opportunity in the past that did not work out or they may have been scammed by somebody and they use those experiencing to be negative about everything else they come across. In these situations we need to recognize their genuine concern and provide them with as much information and time they need in order to make an informed decision. You cannot rush these people because you are dealing with issues that are deeper then just being skeptical.
This is why the system is so important, because it allows you to present the weight of evidence. I cannot stress more, how important it is to plug into the Reliv system!
