How to Succeed, Use What You Have!
Sometimes you may feel that everything you are doing in your life is not working and everything is going backwards, not forward. During these times, you must remember that God has favor and blessings over you. He is preparing you for your victorious life, He has in store for you. During these times, remember to let God know “Lord, I thank you for everything and I know you have favor over me. I shall not be afraid and I will keep the faith because I know my blessings are coming.” While you are waiting for your blessings, you must prepare yourself by thinking and speaking each and every day that your blessings are coming and God has favor over your life. Never stop praying during the rough times and good times asking God to bring the promised blessings into your life.
Prayer is our way of communicating and speaking with God. This is the time that God let’s know what He has planned for our lives and we tell God what we need from Him. God uses your gifts and connections with others to answer your prayers. When you pray, God can answer your prayers in two ways: (1) He can use somebody you know. (2) He can use something you have. Luke 6:38 “Jesus stated, ‘Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.'” When God blesses you, He often does it through people. Proverbs 13:20 states “He who walks with wise men will be wise.” So, be careful of the company you keep. Wisdom comes when you’re moving forward, not resting on your laurels. You must be teachable, discerning, rational, and responsive.
With God you always have enough to create what you need! God will use the gifts and talents you have to help others reach their goals and get you to the next level. Eph. 3:20 states “God can do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to his power that is at work within us.” Where’s the power? Within you! Your resources are in your gifting, your tenacity, your relationships, and your connection God. So the word for you today is: What do you have?
