Good Monday morning to you. Are you ready for an amazing grace filled week in your business, and career?
Grace-Full business devotionals are all about teaching you about God’s intense desire to make your business and career full of His grace, resulting in awesome success! Although God’s desire is that every area of your life is overflowing with His super abundant grace, we have devoted Monday’s to our careers and businesses. I am delighted to report that I have heard some exciting testimonies about His grace in the lives of Grace-Full Business participants. All you have to do is believe. Here is the beauty of the gospel of grace, it doesn’t matter whether you start with a lot or a little, because of Jesus you have been FILLED with His treasure, and poverty has no place!
You have been redeemed from the curse of poverty, through the cross of Calvary, and Deuteronomy 8:18 says that God has given you the power to get wealth. Why? To establish His covenant of grace through Christ Jesus.
In the book of Numbers, the children of Israel were complaining about the manna they were eating. They wanted meat, so Moses inquired of God asking in Numbers 11:13 saying; “where am I going to get meat to give all these people? (Probably around three million people). For they weep all over me, saying ‘give us meat, that we may eat'”. Vs 18-21 God said he would give them meat to eat for a month. (That is a lot of meat for three million people). Moses asked God, “where will you get that much meat, shall flocks and herds be slaughtered for them, to provide enough for them? Or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, to provide enough for them?”
You see, in this instance Moses had our typical ‘where am I going to get our provision’ mentality. Or ‘this is going to cut into my savings’ mentality. What did God tell Moses? Vs 23 And the Lord said to Moses “has the Lord’s arm been shortened…?” or another way to put it; “is the Lord’s power limited?”
Have we been limiting God’s power in our business dealings? Have we been leaving God’s grace out of the equation? Thinking that we must do something or else it won’t get done? In vs 31 God provided so many quail that the people were up two days and one night just gathering them up.
What have you settled for? Are you satisfied with just getting by? Have you concluded in your mind that it isn’t going to get any better, so learn to live with it? God loves you so much, that He wants to give you a net breaking, boat sinking business and career experience!
Don’t say things like, “well if it doesn’t come through, then I can down size, I don’t need much to get by.” Your a King for crying out loud, think like a King, act like a King, don’t resolve to accept defeat. Jesus did all the work, so you can rest in Him. You are His, He will make sure you are well taken care of. You are royalty, don’t back off the grace message, don’t mix a little law in it, hoping a little effort with grace will do the trick. All that will do is VOID your faith, Romans 4:14. Hear the word, believe it and bear fruit! Bear fruit in you career! Royalty is in the blood line, you have favor with the King of Kings, you are the King He is King of!
The message of the gospel offers more than just spiritual improvement. It offers a revelation of wealth, a treasure within you. Colossians 1:26-27 Mirror; This mystery was concealed for ages and generations but is now fully realized in our restored innocence before Him. 27 (God knows the mineral wealth that He deposited in the earth on man’s behalf) in the same way He now eagerly anticipates the unveiling of the riches of the ultimate treasure in all the nations; which is Christ in you! The revelation of His indwelling fulfills His every dream for you.
Now that we understand what was completed in us through the cross, then we can stand firm on faith ground, not backing off of grace, not settling for less, but settling for the best. You are a King so reign as a King in your career today!
