Are You Hesitating?
When God gives you a clear direction to “GO!” it’s time to go. To hesitate brings in confusion and a high price we really don’t have to pay.
There’s no need to calculate, strategize or map out how God is going to move. He doesn’t need your help. He just needs your heart.
Oftentimes we think God is still ‘working things out’ so we say that we are ‘waiting on the Lord’. When in reality as soon as God designed that something would be, it is. It is done. It’s finished. He INTENDS to complete it. Don’t get in the way of God’s divine order. Don’t try delaying God’s divine plan and putting in on your calendar when it’s convenient.
Hesitation can get us into a lot of trouble. Make a commitment. Make a decision and then MOVE! Being relentless to show up where God is moving, when He is moving, is how you overcome it. Please don’t act in haste or in a way that is just plain goofy. But when God has clearly spoken, OBEY.
Sure, there will be some discomfort. I’ve never had God move on my time table or in the way I thought He should. But He has never failed to enable and give the grace that I need when I simply obey.
BE MORE my friends. Be more.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way, to be happy in Jesus, than to trust and obey.
When you start to feel disconnected from God, just tell Him. “God I feel so far from you, please come near to me” He will. I promise.
Press in… part of your assignment is to hold a space where heaven can rule and reign, through and around you. This takes work. Its not a work to prove that God loves you, that you’ve earned His love. No, that all comes through Jesus. We earn the FULL love of God through Jesus. But if we want to be the powerful mighty people of God we’ve been called to be we must PRESS IN.
It is a battle. It is a war. Don’t be so surprised! Don’t be so weary!
Say it, “God I feel so disconnected from you. I’m sitting here and I need you now!” He will come near to you. Don’t just ‘tack Him on’ to your day. Set aside time everyday to talk to Him. Really talk to Him. Really have relationship with Him. Read His word….
The religious spirit also reads His word & is not in relationship with Him. That’s dangerous! Understanding Bible verses and even knowing the Greek and the Hebrew won’t save you or bring you into deep intimacy with the Father. I love the Greek & Hebrew. I LOVE studying God’s word. But it is HIM that I want! His presence. Him. His touch. Relationship with Him is what keeps me vibrant. Reading His Word when I am in Him & having relationship with Him REWRITES the Book! HA! It becomes ALIVE, daily! It’s what keeps me alive.
Not church membership.
Not a prayer meeting.
Not a Bible study.
I love my local church. I LIVE to pray and intercede. I love studying my Bible. But a deep intimate relationship with the holy Trinity and living IN heaven while I’m ON the earth, this is what I was created for and so were you. THE LOVE OF GOD settles the matter. Seek HIM. Seek His righteousness. Stop trying to be so good and stop trying to earn His affection. RECEIVE His affection. RECEIVE His love.
This makes you altogether good AND powerful!
Lean in. Press in, my friends. Take the time. IF you do this… if you pursue relationship with Him above everything else in the entire world…. your entire world will change. Your work will be brighter. Your communication will be better. Your brain will operate more fully! You’ll dream again!
He is my DNA. He is my all. Nothing has any value to me apart from Him. And with HIM?!?! OH MY GOODNESS…. life is a blast! Through its highs and its lows and its challenges and its victories. Life in a loving deep relationship with Him…. is worth it all.
Have a great day today.
We currently have more than 1 MILLION clients in our client base. More than 600,000 follow me on social media.
The #1 thing people write me about DAILY is how to get past negative people on social media. “HOW do I deal with mean people, haters, vomiting people who hurl insults and negativity on my business page?”
I’m a business trainer. I also work with several multi-billion dollar brands working on their social media pages & several ministries with more than 1000 staff.
My advice is this- if you wouldn’t let them come to your store and vomit all over you and your customers, don’t tolerate it on your Facebook or Twitter page. Be wise!
Keep your brand healthy, don’t tolerate this. It’s a part of business, with 600,000 on my social media platforms it happens to us daily. But it’s not my focus. I block, ban and even report. Then I move on!
You can’t change crazy!
Choose to influence, release hope and not focus on that. Business 101- focus on where you’re going and don’t get distracted with the bumps in the road.
Whether you have a brick and mortar business, are a totally virtual business or are just starting out and have a combination of both- you will always have negative people to contend with. The bigger you get, the more it happens. In the online world, 1 out of every 100 people is just a bit ‘off’. Maybe the statistics are much higher.
It’s important to know when to encourage someone, when to block them and when to simply ignore. Discernment is the number one thing we need in this generation. But please, in your desire to be discerning, loving and positive, don’t let someone dump their garbage truck into your living room (or showroom!)
BE more. Be the leader you are designed to be. Lead people in the right way. Love all, pray for all, but don’t tolerate this nonsense.
Serve your clients & don’t let an unstable person side track you.
