Who’s Ability Are You Focusing On, Yours Or God’s?
Have you ever found yourself wondering how you got where you are in your life, If you are where you’re meant to be, If you’re going to stay on this road or if God has other plans for you? If you answered yes, you’re like 98% of most people.
I get asked pretty often, “How does a pastor/speaker/teacher end up in Network Marketing?” My answer is pretty simple. 1. This is where I felt God leading me because I needed to be home with my children and be able to earn an income 2. I’m passionate about people and this enables me to serve them. I can still use my gifts with the people God places in my sphere of influence every day!
Why am I telling you this? Because you may have found yourself questioning how, or if you are ever going to get the place that you envisioned yourself in so many years ago. You may think that the passion you have deep inside has nothing to do with where you are in life right now and you may be questioning yourself about the choices you have made or the direction you have gone in. I want to encourage you that you ARE being prepared, changed and transformed by God to be EVERYTHING that He created you to be.
We often have more faith in our own ability to get it wrong than we do in God’s ability to get it right but you WILL end up in the right place at the right time if you follow one simple truth. Make knowing Jesus your Determined Purpose. Everything else you need, everything else you feel passionate about will come forth in your life as you follow this ONE thing. We make it far more complicated than it needs to be. We question and doubt ourselves more frequently than we should and we forget that it’s God’s strength and Grace that will take us where we need to be.
If God put a passion and a desire in your heart HE will get you there when you make HIM your determined purpose. Stay FOCUSED on Him and let Him love you, guide you and transform you. His grace is bigger and more powerful than any mistakes you may have made or any shortcomings you may feel you have.
Often things may not look the way you thought they would but that doesn’t mean that they are wrong. If I listened to every person who questioned me about how I got where I am, I would be a confused mess, but I know, that I know, that I know that God is leading me and HE is my determined purpose. Give 100% of who you are to where you are! Don’t get so stuck on what you thought the plan would look like that you forget to enjoy the journey!
Be encouraged! You are loved, YOU have a purpose, and God IS big enough to get you where you’re going!
“[Not in your own strength] for it is God who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.” Philippians 2:13 Amp
