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.
Last time we met we were discussing what would happen if we continued to compete not adhering to God’s message for our lives.
Ephesians 1:3-6 says, ‘All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. 4 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. 6 So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.’
The answer??? Plain as day…
Continuing from the post made earlier this week regarding ‘The Inheritance’, the true way to inherit God’s blessings is simple:
1) All those results you are going for are not yours. The results are His. You can strive all you want, but no one can move the mountains in your life like He can.
2) All God is asking is that you only focus on what He is asking of you and let Him do the rest. He came for those that are tired and weary so you could lay your troubles at His feet. He promised you perfect rest. Let go, rest, and let God do the rest.
3) it is not about all you did, it is about who God is.
