Progress

I work much better when I feel like working, but I don’t have to feel like doing something to do it or prosper in it.

The Word says, The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. – Deuteronomy 28:8

I made a lot of progress in the Juice+ today, and all I was trying to do was get through my power hour and get back to working on the Story Brand project.

But one thing led to another, and I have a possible sale, a possible team member, and a source of new team members in 4 hours which is great. 

wisdom?

Something weird happened, though, when I saw the progress.

Of course, it got me excited, but there was a pull that I had to keep doing this.

There was a devil on my shoulder whispering that this was the solution to my problems, and if I dug my heels in and put my time and effort in, I would get success.

Wow, that sounds like wisdom.

Doesn’t it?

That’s the world’s system.

This wisdom is not from above but is earthly, sensual, and devilish. -James 3:15 

God will do it

I’m not going to put all my time and effort into it because I will not compromise my study time with Abba and the other projects He assigned to me.

I also will not step out of peace and put the pressure of success on myself. 

 

God will bring success.

It says the Lord shall command the blessing upon me.

But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.

Jeremiah 17:7-8

blessed

Today, I learned that in the Greek Blessed means – to cause to prosper and make happy.

That sounds lovely.

I want to rest in His promises and not worry about tomorrow.

There are too many things in God’s Word I need to meditate on and understand. I don’t have time to worry about where I’m going to sleep or what I’m going to eat. 

trust issue

I haven’t brought in the food I’ve been eating in the last eight months God has provided.

But because I didn’t know where it was going to come from when it came, I had the mentality of eating it while it’s here and don’t let anything waste.

That caused me to eat more than I needed. I had never eaten so much before, and as a result, I gained weight. I don’t pay too close to appearance, and I think there is a balance.

I think it would be healthy to pay a bit more heed.

stinkin thinkin

When I finally understood I was gaining weight, I knew something was wrong.

I looked at myself honestly and thought I believed in God to provide, and I confessed that I had doubts and some stinking thinking.

I’m not going to feed my flesh whatever whenever. It’s healthy for my body to go without from time to time.

shift

I chose to make a shift in my thinking.

Now I don’t just eat what comes in or what’s offered to me, but eat at appropriate times, quantity, and quality.

When our eyes are open, our ears are inclined to listen, and our hearts are hungry to learn wisdom; there are infinite resources around us the Holy Spirit uses to teach. 

Blessings all. 

God desired to see His blessing established in our lives from the beginning of the world.

 

In His Service,
