Can you imagine life without DOUBT?Jun 05, 2021
Most of the CanaGlobal business community discovered us during a season of waiting on God. And most who find themselves waiting, are battling doubts about reaching their full destiny, on a daily basis.
I'd say 80-90% have found themselves in dry-bones season, someplace between what used to be ... and what they are believing for. In their discomfort, they have drawn closer to God in new and refreshing ways.
Most are in a career or entrepreneurial transition and are not getting paid well, or at all. Something has happened to their personal income. Sound familiar?
They are learning what it means to wait on the Lord. To trust God to be their provider. An employer is not their provider. A client is not their provider. God is.
For the past month or so I've been creating social, blog, and video content around this topic. And, I still have more to say as God continues to pour His thoughts and Word into me — to pass on to you.
Side-note: Something God shared with me today is that those God has called and sent me to help, those in our Online Community, Full-Stack Entrepreneur Accelerator and HisPlan MyPlan Journey CoLabs, are my-former-me. That is to say, someone who is experiencing what I've gone through. I immediately have empathy because being stuck in a dry-bones season is still very fresh to me. You never forget what it's like. I am extremely motivated to help them prosper and succeed.
UM, YOU'VE BEEN ROBBED
If Jesus said He came that we would have life-to-the-full or abundantly, then why are so many people living "not abundantly"?
If that's you, I can tell you how, because it happened to me too!
You got robbed! Of what? Let look and see.
John 10:10 AMP - The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].
The thief (satan), yup he's real, is out to:
Steal what? Jesus reveals the answer in Mark 4:11-20
+ vs 11 Jesus says this is the SECRET to the Kingdom of God.
+ vs 15 Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them.
+ vs 16-17 Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. But since they have no root, they last only a short time.
+ vs 18-19 Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful.
Take a strong look at this. Can you connect what Jesus said in John 10:10 with what He said in Mark 4:11-20 in the parable of the sower?
If satan can steal the Word of God from you, God's promises, he'll steal your future.
How does he do it? Same old tricks. Same old lies. He uses his unholy trinity, doubt, fear, and worry. He is extremely effective. The whole battle occurs in your mind. He is extremely persuasive. He masquerades as light, and he's good at it. Never forget he was God's top angel in heaven who convinced a third of God's angels to turn against God.
There are over 6000 biblical promises for you. God's answer to EVERY one of them is yes. It is part of our inheritance through Jesus. It's His will of what He wants to be done. It's His covenant written will (inheritance) of what is ours, through Jesus.
I just read a report through Barna Research that stated only 6% of Christians have a Biblical worldview. Why? Because less than 15% of Christians read their Bible on a regular basis. They might read devotionals or Christian books, but they don't actually study the Word of God. And less than 5% of Christians have made the Bible the center of their life.
If you don't know what's yours, it's make stealing it that much easier.
So what did I do? I exposed and eradicated doubt from my thought life and my words.
How? I filled myself in The Word of God leaving no room for doubt. Doubt is SPAM. FAKE NEWS! When a thought enters into your mind and you recognize that the thought is contrary to God's promises, Demolish the thought. Get rid of it.
How? The minute I recognize the thought is not from God, and from satan, I do what Jesus did following His 40 days in the desert, I say ... it is written ... speak a biblical promise ... and hang up on the devil.
NEVER answer the questions of satan. That like an email phishing scam, if you respond he'll steal what you have.
Take back what was taken from you! How? Through God's biblical promises. He promises to give you back double. Double for your trouble. (Isa 61:17; Job 42:10-16; Zech 9:12)
Can you imagine what life would be like IF you had Zero Doubt in your life?
God reminded me of VIP waiting as a picture of what waiting on God should look like.
For 20 years of my entrepreneurial career, I did a ton of traveling. Every week I traveled out to business turnaround clients. I would fly out on Monday and come back home on Friday.
I lived at the airports. But one year, American Express sent me a special card, a card that gave me full access to every VIP Airport lounge in the US. I discovered how the VIPs were waiting. It's a similar experience to flying first-class or private.
I had no idea these lounges existed. When I'd enter the VIP lounge, the person at the reception would check my departure time, make a note of it, and then come find me when boarding would start. At some VIP lounges, they would actually escort me to my gate, yelling VIP coming through. If I'm honest, though a bit embarrassing, I kinda liked the treatment.
Inside the lounge were bathrooms with floor-to-ceiling marble and showers in case you needed to freshen up. There was a huge spread of free food and beverages. Conference rooms to work out of, a variety of seating areas.
I learned to LOVE waiting. I thought, "this is heaven!"
God reminded me that this is scripture is a picture of what God's VIP waiting looks like.
Isaiah 40:31 AMP - But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] Will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]; They will run and not become weary, They will walk and not grow tired.
If you have become weary or frustrated in your waiting on God, how can you enter His VIP waiting?
Read and meditate on these chapters from the book of Psalms chapters 34, 40, 46, 91,103, and 107.
Fill your thought and words with these scriptures. Speak them over your situation. Your words when filled with God's Words ... have authority and power.
THEN, Put on the full armour of God. Read Ephesians 6. Read Joshua 1 for instructions on how to be successful and prosperous.
Be strong and courageous.
Keep the Word of God on your lips.
Meditate on it day and night.
Think about it all day long.
Talk to God about it all day long.
Praise and thank God for it all day long.
Do not be afraid.
Do not be discouraged.
God is with you.
He will NEVER forsake you.
My SIX final words for you.
Fear Not. Believe only. Get Ready.
