Last post we were discussing the definition of coveting and how it can take root in our lives. To rid ourselves of anything that could possibly be perceived as coveting is to stop looking at what others have and comparing your fruit to theirs. You may have been given the same opportunity to flourish, but you are in a different season or you might just have more to overcome, to learn from so that when it is time, you have the maturity, knowledge, and understanding to know what to do with what you have been entrusted with.
Hi friends! Last time we were talking about success and creating results. The journey to creating results can seem so smooth until a pit fall comes your way. A pit fall is something that must change in you first in order to move forward and create the life you truly desire. Lets take a look and see which one of these pit falls best describes you and how you will overcome it.
The first pit fall is false pride and ego. False pride and ego is over-estimating and compensating your abilities. When you size up your competition to match their credentials, when you obsess to be better than everyone else and strive to achieve results, when the results and success that you have aren’t good enough, when you think you are already better than everyone else and don’t need any more skills and training because you already know it; these are all classic signs of false pride and ego. Just remember one thing, pride always comes before a fall.
Another short, sweet, word of encouragement to you this week…we all go through things in life. Sometimes these things last for seasons. Sometimes these seasons seem as though they will never end. Some seasons feel like everything around them is crumbling and falling apart. Whatever you do, stay the course and be willing to press in and ask God with faith that does not waiver for what has been laid on your heart. Trust that He is listening and teaching you steps, lessons, and giving you tools that are preparing you for that next level and breakthrough. When God NOT man decides it is your time and turn for breakthrough, watch out!!!!! You are on the cornerstone and brink of a massive shift of breakthrough. Keep asking without ceasing and believe that Gods timing for you is perfect! Until next time….
