We serve a God who goes against the gain of normal human thinking, who says, “Walk by faith and not by sight”
You see normal human thinking is, “Seeing is believing” where as with God “Believing is seeing”
To walk a blessed life under the covering of God is a choice every individual has to make. It is not an automatic thing, not something you are born into, it is a decision.
When God told Abram to leave his people because he was going to give him a land for him and his descendants, (Genesis 12), he made a decision that was fuelled by faith. Later on when God told him that he and Sarai would have a son together at an old age, he had to except that by faith, because his body and everything visual was saying, this was not going to happen. Later on he had to draw from his experience of God through faith, to fuel his faith for an even bigger challenge, when God told him to sacrifice his son that he gave him. This was a test of Abraham’s heart, which he passed and this is why he is known as the father of faith.
Our Christian life is fuelled by faith; it starts with a decision to follow Jesus, which a decision fuelled by faith. As we walk this new life, we leave old things behind us:
2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
This is empowered by faith, and as the bigger challenges of life come at us, we draw strength from past experiences of God, that happened through faith, to grow our faith for the present situation. This is the exact same process Abraham had to go through.
So what is happening in your life at the moment, what is man saying verses what God is saying. Draw strength from God’s word to fuel your faith:
Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
When man says, there is nothing more they can do, God says, “Now watch me work!”
However without faith it is impossible to even please God:
Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Experiencing God and faith go hand in hand, why do think the enemy of our souls tries so hard to give us instant gratification and things that are instantly accessible? It is so that we do not have to exercise our faith, which a lot of time is developed through patient endurance.
God is looking for a people of character, people he can trust, people he can use as a show piece to the enemy, just like he did with Job.
You see people that are going to live with God in eternity are the people that choose by faith to be there. People who are sold out to God no matter what the challenge and who have to resolve, that know matter what man or the enemy says, they choose to listen to God:
Jos 24:15 If you think it’s the wrong thing for you to serve the Lord, then choose for yourselves today whom you will serve—the gods whom your ancestors served on the other side of the Euphrates River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose territories you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.
Parallel Business Principals
In order to be successful in building your Reliv business you have to first know by faith that you are going to make it, because that faith will affect your level of activity.
You have to decide whom you are going to believe, the voices of the people around you or that inner voice which is fuelled by faith,
If God is the head of your business and you truly put him first, then why would you not be successful? You see faith causes you to act; it causes you to take responsibility of your own understanding or lack of. Faith causes you to press toward the mark of a higher call (parallel biblical principal).
This is going to take patience, commitment, integrity and action. You have to be sold out to your success no matter what. You have to be ready to look challenge in the face and say “Give me your best shot” You need to understand that you can do ALL THINGS through Christ that strengthens you. And finally you need to understand that the God you serve, will never leave or forsake you!
God is interested in ALL aspects of your life, including your Reliv Business!
