Your decision to be a winner today will be tomorrow's reality, and if you are to be successful there are two things you need to consider.
- Getting started!
- Never quitting!
If you can overcome these two problems then you can become the person God wants you to be.
You may not have considered when you started to read this study that today could be the day that your life could change forever.
2 Corinthians 6:2 For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
Exodus 14:15 Living Bible Then the Lord said to Moses, Quit praying and get the people moving! Forward, march!
Even back in Moses’ day, the problem was getting the people started. It's interesting how so many Christians want to do the religious and spiritual things and don't want to do the practical things like starting.
Beginning means that you are half done and already on the way to completion.
Proverbs 12:11 Hard work means prosperity; only a fool idles away his time.
You need to decide to do something about the idea that God has given you. Start to treat each idea as a gift from God. As you get into the program you will feel enthusiasm starting to build and you will know that you can also finish.
1 Thess 4:11-12 Living Bible This should be your ambition: to live a quiet life, minding your own business and doing your own work, just as we told you before.
12 As a result, people who are not Christians will trust and respect you, and you will not need to depend on others for enough money to pay your bills.
When faced with a God inspired idea, people who are insecure hibernate. They run from good ideas in case it costs too much or they might fail.
The lazy people luxuriate, they don't pay much attention to a good idea. They want the pleasures of life now, but not the responsibilities!
The wounded people commiserate. They agree it's a good idea but because they have failed before, they can produce a list of excuses not to do it this time.
The foolish people procrastinate. They put off the things that they should do.
However, the wise people dedicate themselves to the task and move into it zealously.
The difference between the winner and the loser, between the high achiever and the low achiever is that the winner and the high achiever are the "Lets go and do it now!" kind of people.
Phil 4:13 For I can do everything God asks me to with the help of Christ who gives me the strength and power.
Winning starts with beginning and beginning starts when you get up and do something about what you believe.
Prov 3:6 Living Bible In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.
When God gives you the dream of something more than you have at this time, you can be sure of this one thing. God's dream will appear to be impossible, because He always thinks bigger than we do.
Eph 3:20 Living Bible Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of--infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes.
God wants you to use Creative Thinking.
Prov 23:7 For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.
Ecclesiastes 11:4 Living Bible If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.
You can do it, now go for it!
My new book HOW TO HANDLE DEPRESSION is being professionally re-published and is for sale on Amazon and on Barnes and Noble.
Depression can be such a terrible illness that causes people to be despondent and they don’t understand why. Many times they become unreasonable with family and friends and they end up being isolated because their loved ones do not understand. This book is a study from God’s Word on the matter on depression and can help those who are willing to be helped. The study is through Psalm 42 & 43 in David's life. It retails at $11.99 and can be pre-ordered from me if you wish to and I will pay the postage.
