There will always be opportunities to do right or do wrong, this is the moral dilemma that faces every human being, every day of our lives. So how do we do the right thing on this journey called life?
King David gives us some insight into this as he pondered the same question:
Psa 119:9 Bet
The Benefits of the Word
How can a young man keep his behavior pure?
By guarding it in accordance with your word.
Psa 119:10 I have sought you with all of my heart;
do not let me drift away from your commands.
Psa 119:11 I have stored what you have said in my heart,
so I won’t sin against you.
Psa 119:12 Blessed are you, Lord!
Teach me your statutes.
The Bible gives us the Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth but if someone doesn’t even read the basic instructions, how can they make the right decisions?
If I buy a wardrobe from IKEA it will come with basic instructions and if I follow them I will construct the wardrobe correctly. However if I do not follow those instructions, I will construct a warped wardrobe and one, which would eventually come crashing down. That is what is happening with many people’s lives on planet earth today, they are living warped lives because they just do not follow the manual.
The enemy has had millennia to study us and he knows we are creatures of habit, so he has constructed a system where we will kill ourselves through our own choices. However through all of this God always shows up to those who have eyes to see and ears to listen.
To live a success life, you have to be able to look passed the opportunity that presents itself and discern the spirit behind it:
So for instance, you are a married man and all of a sudden to most beautiful woman starts paying you a lot of attention, the opportunity has just presented itself but what is the spirit behind it?
Or you are in business and there is a possibility to make a lot of money but it is not very ethical, the opportunity has just presented itself but what is the spirit behind it?
Joh 10:9 I am the gate. If anyone enters through me, he will be saved. He will come in and go out and find pasture.
Joh 10:10 The thief comes only to steal, slaughter, and destroy. I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
The enemy has one thing and one thing only in mind and that is our destruction, however he does not mind providing us with our desires in order to fulfill that task.
How many famous people with lavish lifestyles have you heard of that committed suicide or who are on drugs and practice infidelity? These are people who seemingly have it all, BUT there is always something missing.
They have had many opportunities, which had got them to where they are, but because they did not follow the basic instructions their lives were warped.
We are on the journey to eternity and along the way the enemy will throw us crumps to try and take us away from the main meal. This is why we need the leading of the Holy Spirit, that will push away the crumbs and keep the menu in front of us.
Parallel Business Principles
While building your Reliv business, there are always going to be people that will present other opportunities to you to try and entice you away from your Reliv business. They will give you promises of easier money, better products, better promotions etc. This is where you have to be able to look past the opportunity and see the spirit behind it.
There have been so many people that have been entice into opportunity upon opportunity by other people and never had success in any of them, where as the person who enticed them was having all the success. Seducing spirits give people the ability to have influence over others. Many people cannot discern what is happening and that is why they get lead astray. It is the same spirit that leads people into cults.
Remember the enemy’s mission, to Kill, Steal and Destroy.
The way to success in any company is Consistency, Persistency and Determination.
We are having such an impact on people’s lives with what we are doing, so don’t be suppressed when the attacks come.
