How to be a REALIST while operating in FAITH 

🔘How to be a REALIST while operating in FAITH. 

Sometimes there is a conflict between a realistic mindset and a faith-filled lifestyle.
🤔 The realistic mindset says: based on these facts this is and will be my result.

🛐A lifestyle of faith says: because of these facts I hold fast to the promise that God has given me and I will have these results.

At times, the faith filled lifestyle will take the first step and expect God to do all the rest. Unfortunately, many people stop at that first step, and do not ask for wisdom and understanding to know what THEY should be doing to encourage the process along.
Not asking for wisdom for the next step, it is like burying your talent in the ground and expecting it to produce something. What did the master think about that?

If we are the bride of Christ then that indicates a joining partnership. When we partner with God we are coming together listening to each other, strategizing and executing specific plans. This may not relate to Everyday Life, but for me as a business owner I take my partnership with God seriously because the future of our company depends on it.

For instance the design show we just had in Los Angeles, which was a massive investment for our company, may not have produced instant sales at the show (just 1) but this is where faith in action comes in. I believe the first small strategies are in play now with ideas God gave me however, that is just the start. I choose to not only have faith but ask for divine strategies to go after the leads we received in a completely new way than they have ever experienced before from a company.
🤔💕🛐
In the end, you can have faith and be a realist. You just can’t be a realist and allow fear and doubt to come in to squash your faith. .😉

Dream with God 

Do you realize that when you have dreams that are far superior to what you ever thought you could accomplish that God knows that is just the tip of the iceberg for the Destiny has for you. I’m telling you this, dreaming with God is like nothing else on earth! Tim and I started dreaming, strategizing and putting together the numbers for a different focus in our business. It would put our tables in places that we have only dreamed about so far. Looking at the numbers with the expenses of a very expensive to run business we didn’t know how it would be possible. 

💥BUT WITH GOD NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!!! 🌈 WE HAVE SAID SINCE THE VERY BEGINNING THIS IS HIS BUSINESS AND HE WILL TAKE CARE OF IT IF WE LISTEN TO HIS VOICE AND OBEY!! 


So just now someone came down from Alaska and bought enough slabs to finance our new endeavor that we will be doing in June. More details of that to come! Ha ha 😁🙏🏻👍🏻 
Matthew 6:8 “for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” 

HE SURE DOES!!! 
🤷🏼‍♀️ When you are at a point in life or you are feeling stuck and not advancing. There’s a reason you’re feeling that. God is a rustling the ground under your feet. It doesn’t mean jump ship and do something stupid and crazy 🤦🏼‍♀️. It means he is starting to prepare you for something and it is our responsibility to SEEK HIM!! 🙏🏻We need to begin to pray and ask him what he has for us, read the Bible🎚, soak in His Presence in worship. 🛁 He is not going to prepare something for you and not tell you about it. 🗣That only happens when we are not in a position to listen. 👂 

My husband had a revelation last week that Faith is a VERB. It takes action. I looked up this verse and it says it very clearly. I love the message version

James 2:21-24 Was our father Abraham not shown to be justified by works of obedience which expressed his faith when he offered Isaac his son on the altar as a sacrifice to God? 

💥You see that his faith was working together with his works, and as a result of the works, his faith was completed reaching its maturity when he expressed his faith through obedience. 💥

And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and this faith was credited to him by God as righteousness and as conformity to His will,” and he was called the friend of God. You see that a man believer is justified by works and not by faith alone that is, by acts of obedience a born-again believer reveals his faith. 

I love how the word of God speaks to all situations to confirm what we are sensing! 
 More than anything anticipate great things because God loves you and has better plans for your life then you could even imagine.

I will end with one of my favorite life verses! Praise the Lord He sees every day if our life till the end! Hallelujah! He is a good good father! 

Isaiah 55:8-13 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts higher than your thoughts. “For as the rain and snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth, Making it bear and sprout, And providing seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So will My word be which goes out of My mouth; It will not return to Me void useless, without result, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. “For you will go out from exile with joy And be led forth by the Lord Himself with peace; The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands. “Instead of the thorn bush the cypress tree will grow, And instead of the nettle the myrtle tree will grow; And it will be a memorial to the Lord, For an everlasting sign of His mercy which will not be cut off.” 

Financial Breakthrough for Business Owners and Employees 

It is very Relieving when you have sensed a call to do something for a season that seems almost contrary to what you would typically be sensing in the spirit. Not bad in a sinful way, but some would say more materialistic. Except when God tells you to do something and then confirms it through His Word and other spiritual leaders – and I feel peace – I must do it! 🌈 Working Hard and Applying practical things like work and providing for our family is not a “faithless” attitude – it is an Act Of Faith and preparing ourselves to RECEIVE a great Harvest!! Both in the natural and in the spiritual. 
The lights of your churches don’t stay on because God touches the fuse box! It is time for God’s people to plunder the enemy’s camp and take back what has been stolen and receive our inheritance. The wealth of the wicked is stored up for the righteous. We need finances to pour into ministries to extend the kingdom of God. We need our financial mindset to be that we are blessed to be a blessing. We need our pastors to be taken care of financially so they can pastor without the stress of finances. We need to teach our people to get out of debt so the freedom and blessing of God can flow!

People of God (especially business owners and managers) it is time to put our hands to the plow, expand your warehouses, stretch out your steaks, build new storehouses because God has a harvest of souls that will need the resources coming into our hands to support. Just like Nehemiah, as the people were building the wall, they had a shovel in one hand and a sword in the other. It is time for God’s people to not only be on their face crying out to God, but taking up the shovel positioning ourselves for blessing and breakthrough in our finances and businesses. Hallelujah, I receive it!
