IT'S THE SECOND MONTH OF THIS NEW YEAR! You survived and accomplished so much last year! With that in mind, every one is excited to move into what God has called them to; but even in you being eager for God to promote you don't forget about the steps. I am fully aware that we live in a culture where everything is "instant" and you can get rich overnight. However, those get rich and be successful with "these simple steps" don't last because they aren't built on God and His principles of work ethic (read proverbs 13:4) Quite frankly these get rich overnight scams will never work for you; because God is building you to last. You are built to endure not fold and run under pressure.
I want to give you something to think on.
What if Noah(Read Genesis 6) used the wrong material to build the ark because it was easier or cheaper? What would have became of him and his family? Or what if Solomon didn't build the tabernacle how God told him and did it his own way?( 1 kings (1 kings 9:10) To illustrate, the above mentioned parable of Jesus in LUKE 5 is a great example of how vital it is to "build" your house (life) on God and according to how He tells you to do something.Is your foundation solid or unstable like the sand when tossed by life? I believe one of satan's biggest distractions is to get you to think you must move faster. Going no where fast is a sure way of ending up no where. SLOW DOWN AND DO IT God's way!
"Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." James 1:4
There are no short cuts to your divine assignment! Taking a short cut could lead you into a ditch.
Prayer starter: Thank you Lord for growth and all of the great things that you have in store. God you are faithful and detailed. You know what I am going to do before I do it. Slow me down when I get ahead of myself. Bring me low when I think too high of myself. Restore the original vision you gave to me and refuel me to finish what you have put in my heart. Thank you for showing me that I have many plans but ultimately your purpose will prevail. In Jesus' name. AMEN
