Last night we did a broadcast on Livestream! I think it went pretty well considering it was our first time doing it together. We figured out the iPad app with minimal pain.
We discussed a few good topics, one of which I will share with you today. Doubt…
These are the icky feeling topics that most of us don’t like to talk about. We don’t like to look at our shortcomings. Personal growth is not easy! It takes a lifetime to do and it’s never complete this side of heaven. Let’s look at someone who doubted on more than one occasion, Thomas.
A group of Jesus’ disciples were in a room, doors locked, hiding in fear from the Jewish leaders. Here comes the resurrected Christ into the room. I’m sure I would have had my jaw on the floor. Thomas was not with them when this happened so he plainly says in John 20:25….
So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”
But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”
Well guess who shows up a week later? Jesus is back! *insert theme music here* John 20:27 tells us this…
Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”
I’m pretty sure Thomas inserted his foot in his mouth!
What about King David? When King David was seeking answers from God he would retreat to a “stronghold” or a quiet place to seek God. My quiet place is the middle of the woods, where is yours? Your bathroom, bedroom, closet? David talked to God and asked for a response. God answers our prayers. He answered King David who never lost a battle. He answered Thomas when he doubted. We have to wait for the response!
Have you ever been impatient with God? Doubted that He cared? Think maybe He forgot about you? Have you ever taken matters into your own hands while waiting?
Sarah, Abraham, and Hagar are just one example of being impatient and doubting God. God still blessed Abraham and Sarah with a son, Issac! He was planning on it, He said He would, but our “time” and God’s “time” are not the same.
Are you involving God in your Direct Sales business? Are you hoping to just “get” there eventually on your own? What if we asked God to be in EVERY aspect of our business and didn’t doubt! What if we were to be specific in prayer like King David and ask God specifically how to reach our goals? Maybe you are having trouble recruiting new team members, ask God specifically and do not doubt! You still have to do the work but I bet you will be amazed at the outcome when you start taking every request for your business to the King!
Dear God, Thank you for being a God I can come to with any need or desire I may have. Please help me to overcome my doubt when it comes to my business. Help me to step out of the boat and believe that you will answer me. Help me to seek You more and to learn to wait on you. Bless my business and life. I am yours. In Jesus Name we pray, Amen!
Now go out there and ROCK your business! God is there, do not doubt!
