Careful Consistency Compels Conquering

This Friday will be a month since I began my new business venture with It Works! A health and wellness company. Initially, I wasn't sure what to expect but I told God to make it clear if this was for me. Needless to say, He did that immediately! Within less than 24hrs, the pray I prayed was answered. That got me EXCITED!!! I had no clue what the company was all about but knowing I was saying yes to God and not necessarily the company was enough for me to go forth! 

Ever since my "yes" I have seen the benefits unfold. People who I never thought I'd share this with showed interest & I now have 2 of my teammates in the business with me. (I plan to take the Freedom Movement to conference to minister at the Friday night worship service) But honestly, things beyond my expectations were beginning to happen. 

I often find myself reflecting on the small victories in life, particularly with It Works! as of late. I always get so excited when I realize that these victories came from simply being obedient. In my obedience, I remained consistent and as a result, I am evolving and growing like never before. It's fuel to remain obedient. Often times we "mistake" our way out of blessings because we refuse to stay consistent. (Meaning we continue to make mistakes causing us to miss out on our blessings) If we can just be consistent in WHATEVER God instructs us to do then the mistakes will become less, and the blessings will become more. The more intent you are to heeding to instruction the less likely you are to slip up. Then, in that moment, God dropped a saying in my spirit that led to this blog, Careful Consistency Compels Conquering!!

Let me break it down, (I'm almost done talking, I promise) 

CAREFUL - Be careful in all that you do this and be sure to listen very closely to what God is saying! Be intentional and precise.

CONSISTENCY - Whatever God has given you to do, BE CONSISTENT! We can't complain about lack of results if we aren't being consistent in our walk/purpose/lives!

COMPELS - If we can get past the first two steps, God will bring about the results you desire. He will reveal the things you've been waiting to see. Anticipate ; RESULTS ARE IN as long as your in accordance with Gods plan.

CONQUERING - This term is self-explanatory but the key here is overcoming. Listening, actively doing & anticipating the results we want will bring about victory! We are conquerors, especially when being obedient. 

Like I said, I love seeing the benefits of obedience. If you feel like you haven't been rewarded or seeing the benefits of doing what God has instructed you to do, I challenge you to reflect on these 4 things and figure out where you're losing your way. Careful Consistency Compels Conquering but they each go hand in hand. I'm excited to see your benefits!!!

Isolation = Elevation

Lately, I've been finding myself more and more distant from everyone. For some of us, that's normal. We have those periods in life where we just need to pull back and regroup...but this wasn't one of those times. This time, people started pulling back from me. Problems began to arise and completely separate me from some of the closest people to me.

I didn't understand...  

What was I doing that was so bad that people didn't want to be my friend? The more I looked for answers the less I found them until I finally realized I didn't really care. The relationships that I would have once fought for just weren't worth it anymore. But still something in my heart felt sad... I was becoming isolated by force for doing nothing wrong.

 What kind of sense did that make?? To me, NONE! But eventually, I got past the initial hurt and began to find myself. I branched out, tried new things and allowed myself to journey through the isolation carefree... Needless to say, I was liberated in my isolation.

Strange? I know..but it's true.

I was beginning to get elevated within my own self and I didn't have to worry about anyone or anything. That felt GREAT! Standing out was OKAY! I was always told that I wasn't meant to "fit in" anyway.. I was finding the true meaning of inner elevation and seeing how I could grow as a person within myself. Elevation isn't always physical or even visible. It's not always a promotion from one position to the next. But rather an upgrade from mediocre to extraordinary; peasant to royalty! We get so easily caught up in other people, good/bad that we lose sight of OUR purpose. But when you figure out your purpose and begin to LIVE IT, your life will CHANGE! Ever since I changed my focus from "why doesn't anyone like me?" to "How can I fulfill my purpose?" I seriously saw immediate change!

Stop worrying about all the casualties around you and focus on the battle... Truth is, the battle isn't with anyone else, it's between the EXISTING you and the LIVING you! Stop just existing, start living!!! Live out your purpose and the village that was meant for you will begin to rise up. 

Stay encouraged! Isolation isn't always negative... Just think of it as Gods way of dropping hints that something HUGE is about to happen to YOU!

Law of Commitment

Love requires commitment. That statement alone can go a long way. If you examine your relationships with the people you love, family, friends, significant others and most importantly God, there's a level of commitment that's required to reassure the other person that there is a firm foundation to the relationship. You want to know that the person you love is committed to loving you and supporting you.

Think Happy Thoughts

You ever see those people who walk just happy & carefree. It seems like they never get upset or ever face any real problems. I used to wonder, why can't I be so effortlessly happy like them? Or why don't they ever have anything bad happen to them? Well here's a newsflash, they have problems just like everyone else! The only real difference between us and them is ATTITUDE! Your attitude towards life plays a major role in how the series of events you face play out.

Get Out Of Your Own Way

Most of our lack is self inflicted. We short ourselves of blessing all the time because we don't believe we deserve what God has for us; yet we wonder why He won't give it to us. If you don't even believe you should have it, what makes you think you could handle it if He gave it to you? 🤔 If we don't think we're worth it, why should anyone else? Funny thing is, Gods mentality isn't like that. 

Looking Back And Giving Praise

It has been said and proven that we are creatures of habit especially in our actions. I believe that to be the case sometimes even in our expectations. The Bible is filled with God’s promises that He will never forsake us or fail us. However in times of our greatest challenges we wonder . . . and that wondering potentially turns into doubt. It is nearly impossible to resist basing our future expectations on past experiences. However that is where faith is supposed to overshadow fact! No longer can we predict what happened in our past to repeat itself in our present or future.

Rest And Restoration

I do not think it is a coincidence that the first four letters of the word restoration are REST. states the meaning of restoration in this manner: A return to a former, original, normal, or unimpaired condition. Restitution of something taken away or lost. Oftentimes the need for restoration occurs because there has been a shortage of rest. Out of necessity many times we set a pace for our lives that initially is manageable but after a period of time our bodies, minds, and spirits need a break from that pace. When we ignore the obvious signals we receive we can incur repercussions. If we continue to ignore those signals we can expect that sooner or later there will be a breakdown. God has created us in such a fashion that our bodies, minds, and spirits need rest; a time to revive, relax, and refresh.
