It is an amazing feeling to be a child of the most high God, to know that the God of the universe was so concerned about me that he came looking for me, even when I was not even thinking about him, blows my mind every time.
When we as Christians truly understand this, then we will truly praise him, not for what we can get out of him, but for who he is:
Psa 100:1 A Psalm of praise. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
Psa 100:2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
Psa 100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Psa 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
Psa 100:5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
I was truly blessed to have been invited to one of my distributor’s churches yesterday. Going there and seeing over 3000 people just praising God in song and dance was truly amazing. The bible says “They shall know the truth and the truth will set them free” (John 8:32) and what I experienced were people who truly understood how free they were and they expressed it in the praise and worship.
We have to be excited about our Christianity because God has infused us with power through his Holy Spirit, this is why he told us through his word that Signs and wonders will follow those who believe (Mark 16:18).
If we are just going through the motions of being a Christian, then something is going very wrong. If we are not having any experiences with God then something is going very wrong also because God is a personal God who wants a personally relationship with his children.
If you think you never hear from God, then maybe it is because the noise of the world is too loud in your life, because God is always speaking. Try turning down the noise of the world and you will be amazed at what you hear.
When you know how free you are in God and you praise him, then people who do not understand that freedom, will look at you like you are crazy because they can under it:
1Co 2:14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
1Co 2:15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged by no one.
When David danced before God when the Ark of the Covenant was brought back into Jerusalem, his wife tried to knock him because of how free he was with his praise. She was more concerned about people’s opinions than about praising God (2Samuel 6:14)
I personally can never get my head around those services that last for 30mins to 1 hour, with people going through the motions wanting it to finish, so they can get on with the rest of their day. The only emotion you see is when people are smiling with people they know, on the way out. The whole thing, being so rigid and restrictive that the Holy Spirit has been replaced by a predictable formatted program.
Now this is not how Jesus said it should be. When addressing the woman at the well, Jesus told her the truth about free in God:
Joh 4:23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to worship Him.
Joh 4:24 God is a spirit, and they who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.
Being expressive in your praise is not a cultural thing, it is a freedom thing. I personally have seen people from all different cultural backgrounds being very expressive in their praise.
When you truly understand where God has brought you from and where he is taking you to, you will praise him with all of your might. You will praise him even when your flesh does not feel like praising him, in fact when you are in that situation, this is when you should praise him even harder.
Parallel Principals We should be forever grateful to the person who took the time to introduce us to Reliv, because what they placed in our hands was vehicle we can use to be such a blessing to so many people.
I truly believe that God has drawn each and everyone of us to this opportunity, what we do with it is up to us.
Remember because our model of distribution is not the normal traditional business model, some people will not understand it and some may even look down on it. This does not take away from the fact that it works and our industry has created more millionaires than any other industry on the planet!
Be confident in the product, it will never embarrass you and the company will never embarrass you either.
Be confident in the industry after all it is based on a biblical model of the great commission:
“Go into all the world, find people then mentor them so that they can go and find people and mentor them as well”
If you truly believe that God will bless to work of your hands, then what ever season you are going thorough, you will be persistent, consistent and determined during that season.
We have a lot to give God praise for!
