Love you all, praying for you.
I just love Gods' Word - it tells us what we need to know, and when we need to know it... as long as we read it daily - so it's with us! If we don't, we won't know the secrets of success that God wanted to share with us today... because we will need them. We'll be stuck with our mind instead of His! Proverbs 12:11 - He who works his land will have abundant food, but he who chases fantasies lacks judgment. I love God's directness. You can be offended. He's not calling people names, He's just giving straight truth. He who works his land... What land did God give you? Physically and Spiritually? Are you working it? Is that why you’re hungry? Lacking? If you don’t work the land God gave you. If you’re doing other things… you will go hungry – that’s why. He who works his land (not somebody else's, not someone else's assignment) He who works his land (the assignment God gave him or her) has abundant food. What is food? The produce of the land - what the land produces. But he who chases fantasies lacks judgment – goes hungry. The first land you’ve been given, is your possessions – do they represent God? Do they look like God owns them? He does. The second land you’ve been given – is your assignment – career, ministry, school whatever field you are in. “Get your fields in order, after that build your house.” Are you working the land you’ve been given? Do you even know what it is? Do you know what God’s vision for you in that land is? Maybe graduate, maybe graduate Suma Cum Laude. Maybe a business that honors God, loves and serves well, and sustains and increases profitability, and valued solutions to an important problem or need. Do you know God’s vision for your business, or your job (your company)? Are you working your land? or are you chasing fantasies? The Third land God gave you is spouse and children. Isn’t that more important than work? Not if you're not working you’ll be broke, hungry... (This applies spiritually and socially as well as physically) and you cannot care for a spouse and children if you are broke. If you’re a stay at home spouse, that’s your land. He who works his land has abundant food (fruit, harvest, satisfaction) If you’re dreaming but not doing, distracted not diligent – that’s chasing fantasies – you lack judgment. To work your land you need to #1 Know what it is, #2 Know God’s vision for it (Why are we doing this? and what are we shooting for?) and #3 Know God’s plan for you today – to work your land (that includes Daily Tasks, and His tasks for this day - so you'll be ready for tomorrow's - and next week's) Sometimes its rest, or key conversations, or regular conversations. It’s definitely conversations with Him your PRISM time in His Word. How would you know truth or success? It’s how you confirm what He told you. Praying that your day will never be duped or lulled into chasing fantasies, but full of joy, working the land that He gave you, His plan at His time. Praying that today is full of testimony! Your diligence & God’s faithfulness.
