‘If you’re going to introduce abundant experiences into your life and in the lives of your family, be responsible enough to build it on a firm foundation
Abundance Now, pg. 213
“I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onwards. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.”
Philippians 3:12-14 (MSG)
“What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but do not have works?…faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead.”
James 2:14-18 (NRSV)
“It’s time to activate abundance…now.”
Lisa Nichols & Janet Switzer, Abundance NOW, pg. 210
Dear Prosperity Partners and Friends,
It’s our time to Decide, Listen and Move on what we hear! What a wrap up to the 2021 Adventure in Faith! Thanks for taking this journey with us. I pray that the decisions you have made about the role of abundance in your life that has caused you to Level Up in ways that prove to be a blessing to you and others, too.
Let’s Recap the Lesson
Our Teacher-In-Training, Conroy B. Wilson, quoted the words of the Apostle Paul encouraging us to ‘press on.’ We ‘press on’ because God is always in charge. He reminded us to:
1. Decide – Nothing begins until you decide. Make a decision. Whether you are presently laughing or crying, know that you, alone, get to decide the direction you will go from wherever you are.
2. Listen – After you decide, become receptive to your inner voice; the voice of Intuition; the voice of God within you that seeks to guide you in all your ways. When times appear challenging, pause, and listen to what God is saying about the condition and circumstance. Listen to what God is saying
about the decision that you have made. God wants to lead you into right and purposeful action. Listen.
3. Move – Once God’s intuitive voice within you speaks, MOVE on the directions you receive. Your faith only works if you work your faith. Otherwise, it is as if your faith is dead. It produces no works. See James 2:18.
Conroy’s message to us is this:
Repeat Steps 1, 2, and 3 above, as often as necessary, to achieve your desired goal.
My reminder to you is to work the faith that you have. Too many people stand on life’s sidelines and ‘wish’ that they had more faith. This may come as a shock to you, but God has already given you faith. Every time you put faith to work, you strengthen faith. Like a muscle in the body, the more you use it, the more developed it becomes. That’s why Jesus said that one’s faith, even if it is the size
of a teeny-tiny mustard seed, will move a mountain-sized condition in your life. (Matthew 17:20) Begin today. Dare to put your Faith to work. Faith will work for you if you put it to work.
You have empowered us with the ability to decide. This day, we decide and decree that You, alone, are in charge. Whether we laugh or cry, You are in charge. If we feel faith-filled or fearful, You are in charge. With a definiteness of purpose we decide, listen, and then move in alignment with Your leadings. In faith, we trust that all things concerning the decision are working together for the highest good of all concerned.
