I get so frustrated, so very frustrated with people who claim to love God and so then they therefore cannot make any money. And maybe you fit into this category.
You keep looking for a reason to fail…
I know you do not think you are doing it but YOU ARE!
And I wonder why you keep doing this to yourself. Why do you think your pass into heaven depends on how little money you make? Again, think about what you are thinking about? It is like you are waiting for that ‘ever longed for’ voice from heaven telling you to make a move and frankly, it is such a waste.
Let’s hash this out once and for all and even though I am shaking a little in my boots, I will tell you exactly what I think and you can do what you like with it, but I am DONE with seeing people who claim to love God suffer with a lack of money because they have some weird ideas about what they are allowed to do or not allowed to do.
This is some of what I believe but only a little bit because if I really dug deep, I could come up with a whole lot more but that might be the subject of a book, not a post.
1. IF GOD DID NOT WANT YOU TO USE IT, HE WOULD NOT HAVE GIVEN IT TO YOU.
This is something I remember hearing when I joined a church ages ago and maybe it infects your thinking – Something about you not using your talents to make money?! What kind of weird thinking is that? The feeling that if you have a special talent, it should be laid down and only used in your church or mosque or other sacred place. Otherwise, get a job that you do not much like and make money from that because… it is somehow more holy to make money doing something that drains your soul than actually use the talents you are gifted with?!
I mean REALLY?!!!
Look at what you are saying and where it ultimately leads and tell me, that a loving God has put you up to that! Is it God or the Devil you are serving here?
I kept trying to make myself fit into this weird way of thinking but I finally allowed myself to see that it made NO SENSE whatsoever. I mean, if you are Christian, you do remember the story of the talents, right? USE it or LOSE it.
Please THINK about what you are THINKING ABOUT because it is making your life pretty darned hellish when you believe fallacies.
2. IT IS THE WORLD THAT TEACHES THAT MONEY IS UNHOLY, NOT GOD SO WHY ARE YOU BELIEVING THE NONSENSE?
You talk to me about being separate from the world…
You talk about being set apart…
You talk about being in it but not of it …
And yet, you take the thinking of the media and propagate it as though it is truth! You look at how much money your own preachers are making and judge them according to it. What nonsense!
It is Hollywood and the media that sells the idea that every wealthy person is evil and even if they were (which they are not), then what on earth are you doing about it? Marching round buildings, condemning everyone is not a useful use of your time.
You think money is not being used ‘righteously’…
And maybe it is or maybe it isn’t but what on earth are you DOING about it?
It is not enough to talk and pray – Take action… SHOW us how it should be done. MAKE SOME MONEY and change things instead of thinking, dreaming, talking a good game but ultimately hiding your light under a bushel.
3. YOU DO NOT NEED A SIGN FROM THE HEAVENS TO GO.
Just pray and follow inspired action. If you will just get over this crazy idea that poverty and righteousness are somehow connected, you might make a whole lot more progress in life. Stop praying then waiting for a voice from the heavens…
You do not need people to give you permission – there are simple principles of business and wealth that if you obey, you will make money. Simple. You do not have to do anything evil to make money, you do not have to give up all your friends (unless they are holding you back) in order to make money, you do not have to ignore your children to make money, you do not need a sign or a voice from the heavens in order to make money.
Just decide what you want, then do what you do & be who you be, BOLDLY and you will not be able to help making money IF YOU ALLOW YOURSELF TO.
And this is the thing, it is not that money is hard to get, it is that you feel bad about it on the inside and so you put an upper limit on yourself and for some of you, that upper limit is pretty darned low and so you struggle and pray forever. And all I see is a very loving God looking at you in wonder as He has provided all you need to be wealthy and you keep pushing it back because you have convinced yourself that HE does not want it for you.
Please, please PLEASE get deliberate about what you are thinking and believing because it ain’t God stopping you. It is YOU!
4. MY PERSONAL BELIEF IS THAT YOU CAN DO MORE IN THE WORLD IF YOU ARE WEALTHY AND CONNECTED AND ALL OF THAT STUFF.
I do think we are the physical expression of the love of God and there are some (not all) who are called to be there in the trenches with the hungry, poor, sick etc like Mother Teresa.
And yet for Mother Teresa to do what she did, she needed people with money. Why can that not be YOU? I know I am not called to be in the trenches or maybe I just choose not to be but I certainly choose to impact people who literally have nothing by no choice of their own. I choose to give to such charities, I even hope to set up charities for this purpose and in order for me to give as much as I want to give, I need to MAKE MONEY with no apology. Some hungry child out there needs my help!
Again, pray all you like but someone has got to actually make the money. Yes, I know the world order is not great but it is what it is for right now (If you want to change it, you probably need money!)
We live in a free economy where anyone, as I have already said, can follow certain principles, serve people and make money so why not just get on and do it.
When you do it, then you can stop talking and then actually be of use to the world in putting a stop to world hunger, you can give to charities, you can even go on a mission yourself.
And going back to the fact that we are the physical expression of love, when you allow your own weird thinking to get in the way then you are being weak and lazy. You are following the masses of people who keep blaming ‘the rich’ for all their problems instead of taking personal responsibility for being a part of the solution.
Even if ‘the rich’ are wrong in what they do, does that make you right when you are not being useful either! What? Do you think a lack of physical wealth absolves you of personal responsibility?
If you choose to be poor, know that it is a choice because if you live in a developed country, you have NO excuse for poverty. I am sorry but you don’t. Even those who live in under-developed countries are making it, so what is your excuse again?
Anyway, I could talk and talk and talk about this subject but ultimately, let me show you my heart.
I am tired of seeing you in struggle…
I am tired of watching you stay stuck and overwhelmed when I KNOW that this is not the Divine’s plan for you.
Please get deliberate about your thinking – Stop looking for proof of beliefs that keep you stuck in a life you do not even like. You would be better off looking for evidence that it is okay to be wealthy, happy and free.
Use your gifts, use your talents and MAKE MONEY for you and yours.
And then you can make the world a better place as you come to life.
You have a part to play. Please step up and play it. God is FOR you, not against you. Please be FOR yourself. Stop with the judgments and start being you in all your glory.
Being rich is not a privilege – It really is your right.
But you gotta fight for it in a world that tries so hard to whip you (because you let it!)– Don’t make it so easy for that to happen.
Use your gifts, your strengths, create wealth already.
Fight for, create the life, the business you WANT – You do get a choice, you know!
