Does today feel like a borderline day? Do you feel that you can go either way with your day?
Everyone has those days when you feel like giving up but aren’t completely sold. It could be business, it could be your eating or exercise. Whatever the case, they are all the same. The decision you make will alter your life in some way. The verse, Isaiah 41:10 says
“Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold yo with my righteous right hand.”
The cool part is the one before ” I have chosen you”
If you pray, seek God he will show you what to do and how to do it. Many times we get discouraged because we aren’t “hearing” anything from God and we get so hyper-focused on that, we miss the blessing or direction. Don’t focus on the weightloss, business, finances… but, focus on God. It says in Phil 3:14: Keep your eyes on the prize, do not look at what is behind you but strain toward what is ahead. Press forward to the prize for which God has called YOU.
Like in Proverbs 4:27, “Do not sway left or right but keep your foot from evil”. Meaning do not let your eye wander from what God has you to do, regardless as to what is said. Now, we are to pray because we could be on a path and if the path doesn’t make sense or we are making the wrong decisions and God brings someone into our life to help guide us the right way, we need to be open to that person. As to why, pray without ceasing and to keep your eyes on him.
Only God can move that mountain but it is your faith in him that will move that mountain. You ask, with faith, without swaying and it will be done. But there are some things in which God does give us to teach us a lesson because we just won’t get off of it.
Be careful what you wish for, is the saying. God may grant it but are you ready for the responsibilities it will bring. That’s why in business slow growth is important. (Proverbs 13:11).
The rule 10% applies in running, training, and business. It is the same. Success can happen overnight but rarely is it forever. A hurricane and tornado can rise up in an instant and destroy everything in its path.
Have discipline in your work, be persistent and knowledge to grow your wisdom to make the right choices, pray without ceasing. Do not lean on your own understanding as to why something is going on. Know that you are not in control. But in the same hand, do not worry. Worry is fear, and fear is distrust. Then why pray if all you are going to do is “give it to God” then talk about all the negative that you have, what you don’t have and how you don’t know how you will do it.
If you live alone , don’t have anyone for support. Know that God is your provider, your cheerleader, your dad, your friend. Like a phone call to a person, you have to call on his name. The sparrow has nothing to worry about, for that little bitty thing knows that food will be provided. A child has no fear and goes for it. Sometimes our extended knowledge of the world brings us fear. Fear isn’t real. Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real.
Nothing is impossible for everything is possible through God. You, ” I am Possible” I am possible to do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Go out into the world and change your fears into possible things. Cast your fears far from your thoughts because it is in your head that you can harm your health, and make you think you can’t do it. Anxiety, worry, fear… are all in your head. Cast out the thought so it doesn’t move down into your heart, to your stomach and make you sick with worry, fear, anxiety… which is the leading cause of so many health issues, stomach, digestive issues.
Today, put your feet on the floor knowing today is your day to make a change and be the best you can be with what you have, eyes open, ears open like someone on high alert ready for positive change and success.
Whether you believe in God or not, the thing is that Proverbs has a lot of wise advise so does a lot of the bible that makes sense and many apply what is in the bible to life that don’t know they do…. interesting but true.
Love one another.
