Humanity always wants to progress, we either want to progress positively or negatively but we want to progress. The determining factor of which way we take, is determined upon which spirit is leading us, because we were designed to be spirit lead:
Gen 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul
God is a spirit
(Joh 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
So, when he breathed into us, he imparted a piece of himself and this is what quickened or activated our souls (The mind of our Intellect, The Mind of Our Emotions and The Mind Of Our Will).
Satan is also a spirit
Heb 1:13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?
Heb 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
Remember Satan is a fallen Angel.
Therefore there are only two camps, people who are being lead by the spirit of God and people who are being lead by the spirit of Satan, there are no inbetweeners. This is why you cannot be half a Christian, you are either born again or you are not.
Satan tries to get people to be self reliant instead of God reliant, because he knows if he can do that, he can then sift them like wheat:
Luk 22:31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
Luk 22:32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
Luk 22:33 And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.
Luk 22:34 And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.
Simon Peter was a very much in your face type of person and he would be very reactive instead of responding, so when he said this, Jesus knew his heart was in the right place but his head still had a lesson to learn about self reliance.
God wants us to put him first because he knows that is the best and safest place for us to put him. This means everything we do, everything we exposure ourselves to has to go through the God filter.
When that is happening, God now has the ability to truly direct our lives.
We have better relationships with people, we have a greater quality of life, our mind is right, our families are right, our finances are right.
Mat 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Satan has got people believing the lie of self reliance even in the church and this is why people’s are not moving forward.
In order for us to live the true Christian life, it means complete and total surrender to him.
God will move heaven and earth for his children and he knows exactly what we are going through. He will always show up on time.
When those 3 Hebrew boys would be bow to King Nebuchadnezzar and were thrown into the finance, God showed up. When Daniel would not bow and got thrown into the Lions den, God showed up. When Joseph was in prison unjustly for all whose years, God showed up.
Daniel became the chief adviser to the King and the 3 Hebrew boys part of his advisory council. Joseph became second in command to Pharaoh and saved the nation from starvation.
So expansion happened, it was just in the context of God.
Where are you today and how much are you trusting in God?
God is in control and is helping you to build your business, so how much are you trusting him. Are you one of those complainers that want something for nothing, or are you one of those people who are bring your seed of activity and are trusting God to expand and multiply it?
We talk about “The System” a lot in Reliv and that is because when a person uses The System and gets familiar with it on a daily basis, it acts as a filter for all the rubbish that gets thrown at them by prospects, customers, family and friends. If you do not have that filter in place, you will try to deal with it on your own strength and you will fail every time. The end result will be:
You Will Quit
People who chose to ignore the system struggle to build a Reliv business, people who try to change the system destroy theirs and other people’s businesses.
Guys, do the right things and you will get the desired results and in all things put God first.
That is why this call is so important at the start of our working week, giving God our first fruits.
Remember God knows our hearts so let us make sure it stands firm under testing.
