Just so you know, Faith in God and oneself=Success!
Having a reasonable belief in oneself is necessary to move forward, but it will take more than that to be successful. It would be wise to study before any test, whether they be spiritualistic, physical, mental, or a combination of things I can not name?
Preparation is key!
God knew who we would be before we were formed in our mother’s womb. (Jeremiah 1:5)
For us in the carnal world (physical), it may have all started in our mind’s eye as a vision, (dream)? From there, the opportunity to format God’s plan, under the guidance of His Trusted Son, Jesus Christ, was born, and success is only waiting on an effort to succeed.
When belief in oneself (faith) is connected to a relationship with Jesus Christ, coupled with perseverance and humility, we are in a great space to tackle unforeseen as well as obvious obstacles that may present themselves.
Just so you know, problems, not dreams, always seem to be at the forefront of our lives. Perhaps, “It’s the way of the world?”
It’s our imagination and the Spirit that lives in our hearts that takes us on a journey to “Self-Realization.” We often dream about what we want to be, and where we want to go in life. And we imagine our ideals playing out in front of the real world.
In addition to being Lovers of Christ, as far as I know, all men who have achieved great things have been great dreamers!
When some dream, their beliefs are so strong they swear and make promises they can’t keep, even if it was not their intent. The bible tells us in Matthew 5:36: Do not swear by your head, for you cannot make one hair black or white.
Just so you know, one of the biggest killer of dreams is: When we don’t believe or have Faith in Jesus Christ. Disbelief creates a disconnect when it comes to His Teachings, and that rob us of our dreams, lifestyle, hopes; as a matter of fact, anything positive we can think of.
I believe, the “New Norm,” scams, a lack of effort and education has a great deal to do with our future, or lack of. Prehaps we are rich in technology, but poor in morals?
Just so you know, that can become a thing of the past if we were to follow after Jesus Christ. With Him, we can not only have our dreams come true, we can also move mountains (obstacles) for our fellow-man.
When talking to the disciples in Matthew 17:20 (AMP), Jesus said to them; Because of the littleness of your faith (that is, your lack of firmly relying trust). For truly I say to you, if you have faith (that is living) like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move: and nothing will be impossible to you.
FYI: Most would agree that the verse above is not to be taken “literally.” In my opinion, and what I have been taught in a Christ-like environment; Jesus is telling us how we can accomplish big things with big Faith, coupled with an understanding that it can be done because we believe in the purpose he has for us, and the Faith we have in Him to get the job done.
LET THE CHURCH SAY AMEN!.
If we don’t believe and work hard for our dreams to materialize, they won’t, and our chances of moving anything is unlikely. Dreams are just that, dreams, a figment of our imaginations, until we make them come alive with hard work, Faith, and a few blessings from The Master.
So don’t get to invested in the good time stories told by self-made men; including the myths told by others about how their dreams came true; never mentioning God. I believe if our success is not from God, it’s from Satan, and that’s a problem.
Just so you know, The Devil gives gift too, and sometimes, No matter how explicit the pledge, people will turn and twist the text to suit their own purpose. Mahatma Gandhi
Even when Satan, and his dead followers are involved, some of us refuse to take directions; we live by our own understanding. Therefore, without council, the greater the chances we will develop into fools.
Understand this Genius; attacking knowledge by not listening will cause you lose valuable information, such as: There are more ways to know and do something, than just your way, and both get to the same means. (results) Try imagining what you could never imagine. All you have to do is listen, sometimes.
Are we really that foolish, and stuck within ourselves? I say, Yes! I also say, taking directions from the Devil will not only kill you, it will kill your unborn generations.
Spoiler Alert: As hard as we may try to do things our way, and no matter how many promises come from our mouths, John 15:5 tells us, You can do nothing without me. And, I believe that because of trial and error, and the price I had to pay.
We have every reason in the world to want to achieve our grandest dreams. But, just so you know; Imagination plus innovation equals realization? Denis Waitley
With that in mind, I suggest we go for our dreams, especially if we have God on our side. (Who can be against us?) I know with Jesus; “Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” e.e. Cummings
And for the record, once we realize our own potential and have self-confidence in our abilities, we can heal in our bodies, mind and spirit, allowing us the freedom to build a better tomorrow through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Realistically, “Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.” Soren Kierkegaard
It’s Something to Think About!
Jesus is Lord! And it is in His name we pray. Amen
