There are many people that have gone through some difficult times and they have got the stage where they are just tired and they feel that they just can’t take anymore.
For many people, it is at this low point that they discover religion because they are emotionally and spiritually vulnerable. Region offers a person an escape from their problems by substituting them with new values and a new routine and there are many religions to choose from. So people normally gravitate to the one that makes them feel good, the one that they can logicalise.
However God is looking for us to come to him not out of desperation, he is looking for us to come to him out of a revelation:
He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
Mathew 16:13- 17
When a Jesus came to the area of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” They answered, “Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “You are blessed, Simon son of Jonah, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but my Father in heaven
Also when someone has a true conversion, it does not make them feel comfortable, in fact it is the complete opposite. This is because when the light of Christ is shone on a person’s life, it highlights all of the dirt and the things that need fixing, which is a very uncomfortable situation and one which leaves a person broken. However being in that state allows the refiner’s fire to come in and fix them.
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to them.
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
You see religion offers a person an escape mechanism from the problems, where as a true relationship with God offers someone a way back home through their problems. Sometimes things do not make sense, but because God said it, by faith we have to trust him. This takes faith, but without faith it is impossible to please God, no matter how good a person thinks they are.
When God told Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, to his human mind, this made no sense, because God had promised that through Isaac the world will be blessed. Also Abraham had waited so long to have Isaac that both he and Sarah were tired. However Abraham had so much faith in God and also had a revelation of who God is that he new that even if he did this, God would have to raise him from the dead so that his promise could be fulfilled.
Hebrews 11:6 (continued)
for the one who approaches God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him
So when we go through things that make us tided, we have to draw from our well of faith in order to get through he situation. So we always need to make sure there is plenty of water in our wells to draw from. This is why it is important for us as believers to regularly be reading, studying and listening to the word of God:
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Many people get involved in our industry because they are sick and tired of always being sick and tired. They many times have had the experience of corporate life or working for someone else and they decide that it is not for them.
They get involved and many times they are told to do things that initially does not make sense to them. So in Reliv they are told to plug into the system and do follow up with their customers and distributors.
If they are teachable they do it, if not they don’t, however their success will be determined by how much they trust in the system and have the faith to know that it works.
People have to want the change bad enough and that will only come by having a true revelation about their current situation and then having the determination to do what it takes to change it.
