More of is it MIne, Yours, or is it God’s?

Now we come to accepting God‘s direction, look at Matt 6:31

 

Matthew 6:31

New Living Translation (NLT)

31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’

We have to believe that God’s wisdom is superior to ours and that he cares about and will meet our every need. Anxiety is needless and pointless worry- which worry will gain nothing but gray hairs! Jesus here addresses and identifies our most basic needs– that of food, water, and clothing. Worry is wrong- concern is something else that is good- with concern comes some type of action. As mentioned before- pray, fast, or just believe and have faith that God will grant a means to provide these things.

Psalm 127:2

New Living Translation (NLT)


2 It is useless for you to work so hard
from early morning until late at night,
anxiously working for food to eat;
for God gives rest to his loved ones.

 

This says that God gives rest to those whom He loves. We must have God is all that we do to obtain the promised blessings. If we do not include God in our plans then all that we do or accomplish is useless.

Refuse Quick Decisions:

All “get rich quick” schemes have one thing in common- that of requiring one to make quick decisions based on incomplete information. Lets look at Proverbs 21:5

 

Proverbs 21:5

New Living Translation (NLT)

5 Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity,
but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.

We see that profit comes from good planning and hard work. And poverty comes from taking hasty short cuts. Make your plan then work your plan. No matter what we endeavor to do is going to take hard work and planning. Wheter it is building a house, building a business, buikding a ministry, a marriage, building a church, no matter what there is no easy way and without proper planning it is doomed to fail and without hard work it is doomed to fail. Even getting a handle on out of control finances takes palnning and hard work. No one ever said this was going to be easy!

Excel in Your Work:

10 God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. 11 Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.

 

We are to work as though we are working for God and as if God is working through us. Excellence is the minimum quality standard for a Christians work. Often times Christians feel that they should be second or even purposely fail- that is NOT God’s plan for us!
