Today's Coaching Moment - Are You Putting First Things First?
All of the good things that happen in your life are the direct result of God's grace and love, AND the choices you have made to respond to Him and do things His way.
Sadly few people ACTIVELY pursue their destiny. Many people wait for God to point the way, provide the means and open all the doors, they don't seem to realize that God is waiting for them to step out and do their bit. Your heavenly Father is expecting you to work hand in hand with Him to accomplish His will. Just as you don't do everything for children who are growing up, the Lord doesn't do everything FOR you, that isn't the way He operates.
Many Christians are so afraid that they'll do something that isn't God's will that they don't do anything much. Others are very busy doing things that spring from their own desires rather than what God has planned for them, so they miss out on His best.
There is a balance that requires taking some risks, and knowing when to wait on God’s timing. Making mistakes and learning in the process are essential steps in moving forward and walking in your destiny. God has lots of grace for you, especially when you're learning to walk.
Food for thought – a powerful principle that I'm sure you're already aware of:
"If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don't you think he'll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I'm trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don't know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don't worry about missing out. You'll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.
But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33 NIV)
When you place a high value on your spiritual life and on building your relationship with God, He promises that everyday human concerns will be met. God promises that He will help you deal with whatever comes up when the time comes.
When you put Him FIRST He guides you in all areas of your life, He promises that He will take care of the other things and He does.
Too many times I've become so busy doing things FOR God that I stopped spending extended periods of time WITH Him. Then I would go back to spending so much time reading, studying, and praying that I neglected to spend time helping people or pursuing my destiny.
We need more balance, not either or, both!
Now I'm more consistent. I keep my eyes on Jesus and ask Him to help me schedule my day.
I recommend you start each day asking the Lord,
=> What do YOU want me to do today?
=> What is the best use of my time today?
=> What do you want me to make a priority?
And throughout the day ask, "What's the best use of my time right NOW?
Stop letting past failure and excuses hold you back. Take the necessary steps to grow your relationship with God AND accomplish what He has put on your heart to do.
I encourage you to start asking these questions TODAY, and make them part of your daily routine. They will help you to live your life ON PURPOSE!
