In order for you to continue to grow in your relationship with God you must learn to be very intentional and purposeful in everything that you do. On today, I want to quickly share with you three shifts that you must begin to make in your life today if you want to experience God’s abundance and unleash your purpose in this upcoming year.
We only have 67 days left in 2017 so what will you do to position yourself to live a life that releases God’s favor?
- Shift your mindset: The battle in your mind is one of the biggest battles that you will fight as you are striving to live a Godly life. If you want to win the battle, you have to jump into the fight with intention. The word of God tells us in Romans 12:2
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”
So does this mean that understanding God’s purpose for your life is directly tied to the way you think? Yes it does! If you are still attempting to think like the world around you, you will only ever receive what the world has to offer you. I can guarantee you that this world is going to sell you short every time. The only way for you to unleash God’s abundance and favor for your life is to shift your mindset to align with what is pleasing to Him.
- Shift your focus: Are you constantly struggling to focus on the things of God vs. being distracted by the circumstances of this world? Believe me, you are not alone. This is another battle that you must win if you desire to get closer to God. The word of God tells us in Colossians 3:2
“Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.”
How will you ever know the fullness of God’s plan for your life if you don’t shift your focus? Your blessings are hidden in your relationship with Christ. This is the time and the season to focus on strengthening that relationship so that you can begin to unlock all of His hidden treasures for your life.
- Shift your relationships: This may be the hardest battle of them all! We are relationship driven so often times, we find ourselves in relationships that pull on our desires and keep us distracted in life. I want to encourage you that in this last 67 days of the year, you must evaluate the relationships in your life. Are the people in your life encouraging you to grow in God? Are they bringing you peace or drama? Are they giving you the support you need to become the person that God wants you to be in life?
Believe me, I know that this is not an easy assignment. However, it is a necessary shift that must take place in your life if you desire to grow in God and position yourself for His abundance in 2018.
I pray that you have been encouraged by what I have shared with you on today. I believe in you, and I believe in God’s plan for your life. I want to help you experience the fullness of God’s abundance in your life. I am praying for you, and I know that God is going to give you everything that you need to draw closer to Him in this next season of your life.
