As I continue with the recruitment for GAME Changers, my elite mentorship program, I came to the realization, from the responses I was getting from some individuals, that the decisions of MANY of God’s people is driven by their bank account instead of God. This explains why many of them are struggling with lack and mediocrity.
While it is smart to “cut your coat according to your size” and live within your means, if all of your decisions are limited by the balance in your bank account, so will your results! Think about it, if every action you take is dictated by your bank account, unless you are like God with unlimited resources, it also means that your results, which are the product of your action, will also always be within the confines of your bank account.
Allowing money to drive your decision making rather than allowing God and the vision, goals and dreams that he places in your heart to be the driving force for your decisions is a huge error and tantamount to giving over control of your destiny to money! Seriously, money is not that powerful. Why will you allow something so transient to dictate your actions and have such control over you?!
The Bible says in Romans 8 v 6-8;
“For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God”.
That means that the natural mind and humanistic way of thinking is in conflict with God laws and His way of thinking. It also means that those who are led by the natural instincts and human wisdom cannot get ANYTHING from God. With God, it ALWAYS has to be by faith and you always have to be led by the Spirit. Think about it this way; to get supernatural results, you must tap into supernatural power. That is why the supernatural NOT the natural MUST be what leads YOU!
I am not trying to suggest that you must never refer to your bank account or budget, what I am saying is that your bank account MUST not be what drives your decision making. God, and the goals and dreams that he places in your heart MUST be in the driver seat. It really boils down to order more than anything else and being careful not to set the cart before the horse. So, consider if the item in question fits within your God-given goals and dreams FIRST then budget and financial considerations come after that.
God’s always move AFTER we do… after we set the intention. You ALWAYS have to take the FIRST step before he responds with the miracle. When the children of Israel were at the Red Sea in Exodus 14, they had to go forward FIRST before the Red Sea parted. While they were at the shore, the miracle did not occur in spite of their loud cries and outburst to God for a miracle. That was the same with the four lepers in 2 Kings 7. God did not drive away their enemies until the lepers got up and started moving towards the camp of their enemies. It is your actions, not your words that speak to your faith and moves God to action.
I have found this to be true in my personal life. People think that I am a multi-millionaire because I undertake “million –dollar” projects. The truth is that I am not a multi-millionaire yet in my earthly bank account (I am in my heavenly one :)) what I have is multi-million dollar FAITH! I set my intentions and base my decisions on the bigness of my God and not the bigness of my bank account, and time and time again, I see God respond to my faith with the financial supplies that I need. They often come in ways and from places, I could not see with my human eyes.
Perhaps you are crying to God for a miracle today and believing him for a financial miracle of sorts… perhaps you are one of those who have decided not to enroll in GAME Changers because of the financial commitment involved. Remember, your first step towards actualizing your God given dreams in 2016 is for you to enroll FIRST and trust God for the provision to follow.
Be reminded that early enrollment deadline is Thursday, February 25, 2016. Contact me, TODAY, for the forms and join me on what promises to be an exhilarating and exciting journey to transform the world.
