Pay The Price! There Is No Short Cut To Holiness And Financial Success.
If you want to achieve something different, you have to do something different. Do not be the average, mediocre Christian who compromises and follows the patterns of this world. Set yourself apart as fully committed to Christ and His word.
Start acting, start doing. It is in acting and doing that God will bless you. Without acting and doing, you deceive yourself. It is the work of your hands that God will bless not idleness. God does not encourage or reward bad behavior, so, stop being idle and lazy if you have formed that habit. Habits can be broken.
You need to help yourself and God will supply the grace as you pray and desire change. If you have decided that you will not train and equip yourself for success, what do you want God to do? Will He come down from heaven and do what you are supposed to do for yourself?
If you keep on reading and watching things about relationship and marriage, yet you lack the necessary skills to sustain a marriage what do you want God to do?
If you are always criticizing, judging, and blaming your spouse to the point of stifling his or her emotions and causing harm to their emotional health which will in turn damage their physical health, you only have yourself to blame for the failure of your relationship. Train and equip yourself for spiritual, mental, health, financial and marital success.
You need to make effort to know and apply the skills that will make you excel in what God has called you to do and in the relationships that God has placed you in.
If you want to achieve something different, do something different and improve yourself in skills that you lack. Also make sure that you do and act. Too much reading without application won’t help you. Wisdom is the right application of knowledge. Get knowledge by reading, listening and watching and also have the wisdom to apply the knowledge that you acquired.
Some people read the Bible all day but do not know how to apply it or act on it. They hardly pray. They do not have passion or desire to obey the word that they have read. So, if you want to be different, start acting differently today. Faith gives birth to action. Read your Bible and also act on it. Do not just say Lord, Lord but also walk in the will of God.
Do not spend too much time on YouTube and social media except you are using it to learn academic, educational or creative work that you can use to improve yourself and make money. You can spend time on YouTube and social media for entertainment, inspiration or other things if you like, but not too much time. More of the time you spend on Youtube should be on educational, academic or creative content. Spend more time being active and working. If you run out of money, those blogs, shows and entertainment content that you watch won’t pay your bills. Too much play is not good, and all work and no play is also not good. Be balanced and wise in all that you do including the way you manage your time on social media.
Also, put on the complete armor of God and pray without ceasing. Pay the price! There is no short cut to holiness and financial success.
