When life gets chaotic, we make excuses by using the ‘if only’ clause. If only I had a friend, money,..What we need is in #WhatWeAlreadyHave
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: (Ephesians 1:3 KJV)
Positive Practice 109: The solutions for any challenge we face is locked up in us – our intuition, our wisdom, our resources, and other intangible things we already have. We even have a back up of spiritual blessings we can download into manifestation in the physical through the actions we take.
What we need is available to us in one form or another. It is up to us, not to make excuses and waste time wishing for what we think we do not have instead of using what we do have to move forward to our desired place.
During stressful times and when we find situations chaotic and challenging, that is the time to rise up to the challenge rather than giving in to the ‘if only clause’. If only I had this or that….
If we have tried everything, and we absolutely cannot solve a problem, then we need to access, the peace, the joy and the sound mind that enables us to live fulfilled in the now while we wait for our future manifestations.
Say with me. “I have everything I need. It is all available to me now in one form or another. I can be at peace. I can move forward”.
It’s easier to cover a pile of junk- anger, pain, bitterness, low self Esteem on the inside by painting the outside beautiful.
But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart. (1 Samuel 16:7 KJV)
Positive Practice 108: The time spent working on what is going on inside me is more valuable than the time spent working on what I want people to see on the outside.
When what is on the inside correlates with what is on the outside, life becomes real, fun, authentic, genuine, beautiful, inspiring, fulfilling, healed, no cover ups, simple, priceless, …..that is what I will strive for, everyday.
To live inside out. To be beautiful on the inside first and to reflect that on the outside. To look at all the junk life has served me and to decline, to abstain from dining at that table in that darkness.
To choose what I fill up with and to glow with the vitality of the light of my beautiful soul.
I pray the same for you.
Our confidence is higher when it is not only in ourselves but also in what we’ve been promised by one who never fails. #WeWillGetThere
In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory. (Ephesians 1:13, 14 KJV)
Positive Practice 106: Have you ever experienced that utter feeling of disappointment when someone who has made a promise to you fails to come through at the crucial moment?
It is very upsetting and cripples trust in other people.
It is important however to know that the success of your life is not only dependent on you and on what others will possibly fail to do for you or on what you can do for yourself.
We must be free from fear of failure because we have insurance and assurance that at the right time, in the right way, what we need will be provided to get us there, to the place of success. We are sure of the promises that confirm that what we yearn for and seek after will inevitably be delivered. That challenges in the now should not faze us. Why?
Because we have been guaranteed by one we know can never fail that victory will be ours.
God is not a man that he should lie. Has he said it? Then it will surely come to pass irrespective of how weak or unqualified we feel in ourselves in the now. He has guaranteed his promises in our lives by leaving a deposit, a pre or foretaste of it in our hearts by his Spirit.
We know deep down that God is with us and if he is with us now then whatever he has promised will surely come to pass. We therefore can face today and tomorrow confidently. His promises never fail.
