As Christians the one thing we should never forget is what we have access to, which is the God of ALL power. The moment we accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal savior, we tapped into creation itself!
This means, where as before we were living a life of limited potential, now because of what and who we have access to, we now are living a life of limitless potential.
This is so important to understand because many times people will doubt you and you may even get to the place where you start doubting yourself,
When you can remember the God you have access too and the fact that he NEVER doubts you but has placed you on a road where HE can sustain you, then you will never let people define you again but your definition will come only from God.
Gideon in the bible had to learn this lesson because he let people and his lineage define me so he could not see his potential because he was looking at his potential through the eyes of people and not through the sees of God:
Jdg 6:12 The angel of the Lord appeared to him and told him, “The Lord is with you, you valiant warrior!”
Jdg 6:13 But Gideon replied, “Right… Sir, if the Lord is with us, then why has all of this happened to us? And where are all of his miraculous works that our ancestors recounted to us when they said, ‘The Lord brought us up from Egypt, didn’t he?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and given us over to Midian!”
Jdg 6:14 The Lord looked straight at him and replied, “Go with this determination of yours and deliver Israel from Midian’s domination. I’ve directed you, haven’t I?”
Jdg 6:15 ¶ “Right…,” Gideon responded. “Sir, how will I deliver Israel? Look—my family is the weakest in Manasseh, and I’m the youngest in my father’s household.”
God does not look at your current situation, but he looks at you in the context of where he is taking you. This is why it is so important to approach every situation with the right attitude knowing that all things are working together for your good, because of the level of relationship you have with the God of ALL power (Romans 8:28)
Sometimes it is the people closest to you that doubt you the most and I know that can be the most hurtful, however never forget where your definition comes from, it is not from your spouse, your parents, your children or your siblings, it is from GOD!
David was discounted by his family and yet God chose him despite of his family’s negativity:
1Sa 16:5 He said, “Peace, I’ve come to sacrifice to the Lord. Consecrate yourselves and come with me to the sacrifice.” Samuel consecrated Jesse and his sons and invited them to the sacrifice.
1Sa 16:6 When they arrived, Samuel saw Eliab, and said, “Surely he’s the Lord’s anointed.”
1Sa 16:7 The Lord told Samuel, “Don’t look at his appearance or his height, for I’ve rejected him. Truly, God does not see what man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord sees the heart.”
1Sa 16:8 Then Jesse summoned Abinadab and brought him before Samuel, and he said, “Neither has the Lord chosen this one.”
1Sa 16:9 Then Jesse brought Shammah, and he said, “Neither has the Lord chosen this one.”
1Sa 16:10 Jesse brought seven of his sons before Samuel, and Samuel told Jesse, “The Lord has not chosen these.”
1Sa 16:11 Then Samuel told Jesse, “Are these all the young men?” He said, “There yet remains the youngest one, and right now he’s tending the sheep.” Samuel told Jesse, “Send someone to get him, [for we won’t do anything else until he arrives here.”
1Sa 16:12 So he sent and brought him. He had a dark, healthy complexion, with beautiful eyes, and he was handsome. The Lord said, “Get up and anoint him, for this is the one.”
1Sa 16:13 God’s Spirit Comes on David and Departs from Saul
Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed David in the presence of his brothers, and the Spirit of the Lord came on David from that day forward. Then Samuel got up and went to Ramah.
To them David was just this small shepherd boy, but to God who had ALL power to see his future, God saw him as the greatest King to rule Israel.
Yes David had his challenges and yes David made mistakes but the one thing David NEVER forgot was the God of ALL power and so even when he felt powerless he could write psalms like:
Psa 51:10 God, create a pure heart in me,
and renew a right attitude within me.
Psa 51:11 Do not cast me from your presence;
do not take your Holy Spirit from me.
Psa 51:12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
and let a willing attitude control me.
Psa 51:13 Then I will teach transgressors about your ways,
and sinners will turn to you.
Psa 51:14 Deliver me from the guilt of shedding blood,
God, God of my salvation.
Then my tongue will sing about your righteousness.
Psa 51:15 Lord, open my lips,
and my mouth will declare your praise.
Parallel Business Principles
In building your Reliv business, you are going to have people that are going to doubt you and what you are doing. However you have to have enough confidence in what you are doing so that you do not let those people define you.
You need to ask yourself these questions and be FULLY convinced of the answers:
If you can honestly answer those questions in a positive way, then you need to trust the God of ALL power to bless the work of your hands and then go out and do the correct activity, which will allow you and others to grow.
Forget about the people who do not believe in you, no matter what your Reliv journey has been like so far and just trust in the God who is going to take you to the next level.
