Now Where Do I Go?
Every one of us is on our own individual life journey, sometimes the road is rough and sometimes it is smooth.
Our choices ultimately determine our long-term road conditions and whether we even stay on the road or start going off road.
People often tend to blame God when bad things happen to them and they love to say the statement “Well if there is a God, why do bad things happen and often times to good people?”
This is the easiest way to get out of accepting any responsibility for your actions or understanding the ripple effect of other people’s actions.
For instance in the book of Genesis we read that Adam & Eve chose to eat from the tree God told them not to eat. Now the ripple effect is we live in a fallen world where every offspring of Adam & Eve are born into sin.
We read in the book of Isaiah and Ezekiel, that Lucifer who was the most beauty angel God had created, chose to go against God and the result was he lost his position, got kicked out of heaven and became the adversary of God or Satan. The ripple effect is because human beings where made initially in the image and likeness of God (Gen 1:26), that he/Satan hates us with a passion and his sole purpose is to destroy us or cause us to destroy ourselves.
Joh 10:10 The thief comes only to steal, slaughter, and destroy. I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
What People will be Like in the Last Days
You must realize, however, that in the last days difficult times will come.
2Ti 3:2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,
2Ti 3:3 unfeeling, uncooperative, slanderous, degenerate, brutal, hateful of what is good,
2Ti 3:4 traitors, reckless, conceited, and lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.
2Ti 3:5 They will hold to an outward form of godliness but deny its power. Stay away from such people.
This portion of scripture in its context is talking about people that are supposed to be believers. So if the organized church is that bad, what about outside the church?
People want to take God out of the picture and the ripple effect is a breakdown of society.
People do not want to look after themselves through correct nutrition and exercise and the ripple effect in chronic sickness and disease.
Nations and national leaders are full of greed and the ripple effect is poverty and famine.
The list could go no and on. Now could God have stopped all of this? Of course he could, however in doing so he ultimately would not be showing love, because love is never forced and always allows for choice. So he gives us the right way and then allows us to choose it or not. This is why NO ONE is born a Christian!
So where do we going from here?
Through chaos, God always has his people, we see this through the whole of scripture. Yes we understand sometimes bad things do happen to good people, however through those periods, God is still with them working it out for their good (Roman 8:28). It is hard to understand that when you are going through it, however when you go through it and you look back, you will see God’s signature all over it!
God uses tough times to mold us and build character and also to test our faith to help so see if we truly love him for who he is or are just using him for what we can get from him.
If we are off, then negative experiences can cause us to change direction and come back to him just like the Prodigal Son.
So where do we go from here? Well it starts with every choice we make from this point. So the choice is ours.
Parallel Business Principals
Many people join Reliv and choose not to plug into the system, they choose not to do the activity and learn all of the right things, then they choose to quit. We cannot control other people’s choices and that is why we continue to sponsor new people until we find those who truly want to do this.
We look for people with a true passion and desire to help others, who are also teachable and motivated with self-drive and vision.
These types of people are not everywhere, that is why we have to make the conscious choice to go out there and prospect continually.
The good thing about building your Reliv business is, if you have made the mistakes and not been actively doing the things you where supposed to do, you can always make the choice today to start doing them and then turn your business around.
The Choice is Yours!
