KEY FACTORS THAT HOLD US BACK FROM GETTING WHAT WE NEED IN LIFE.
Before we go into the the topic for the day. “key factors that hold us back from getting what we need in life.” I will like to make a point very clear which is “ALL THINGS ARE YOURS!” 1cor.3:21-22. Do you feel like asking me, who am I? All things are mine? Where are all the things? All the things are in God. All the things are out there. All the things are yours.
The first thing you should begin to do is to simply accept and believe. You must comply with the thought that all things are yours. You need to embrace the grand idea that all things are yours. You have to be at peace with that very thought. Only after that is done will my article of today be of benefit to you. Because soon after this paragraph, I am going to begin to give you a list of all you need to do to get all you need in life.
One of the key factors that usually holds us back from getting what we need in life, is that we are often too afraid, shy and intimidated to get what we need in life. If you tell somebody that you can be a millionaire, in most cases, the first response is that of discomfort, shock, bewilderment. It is this kind of attitude which indicates disbelieve that often hinders us from been able to get from life the things we need.
Fear is a form of disbelief, because faith is the opposite of fear. When we truly believe, we don’t have to be afraid that things might not work out as we think. Even when things don’t work out as we had thought, faith still enables us to cope with the situation at hand. Faith allows us to know that our failure and defeat is only but a temporary situation.
“If you plan on being anything less than you are capable of being, you will probably be unhappy all the days of your life.” ― Abraham Maslow
Faith looks ahead. Faith does not put its head in the sand of the present. Faith does not have an ostrich’s response to life. Faith is forward looking. Faith allows you to know and be sure that the present failure is only a temporary thing. Faith sees the possibilities ahead of today. Faith looks to the future, hence faith does not give up. Faith allows you to keep on trying until you get what you need.
“Apply yourself. Get all the education you can, but then, by God, do something. Don’t just stand there, make it happen.” ― Lee Iacocca
When you truly believe in the words of the scripture we just read, that “all things are yours” then you will go for it. If you really need to attain a goal, when you really need something, that assurance that all things are yours gives you the faith to keep on going. It is this kind of faith that makes you go forward to get what you want no matter what.
That word of the living God, gives you the courage to surmount any obstacle. To seek if necessary on the land, to seek if necessary in the ocean and to seek if necessary in the air. People who believe that all things are theirs don’t see limitations before them. When there is faith and assurance in the word of God, you are not only ready to ask or seek, you are ready to knock if need be.
“Faith is about doing. You are how you act, not just how you believe.” ― Mitch Albom
It is faith that causes us to stand up and go. It is faith that pushes us to want to do something. It is faith that makes us to keep on going until we attain our goals. It is faith that makes us to be proactive. It is faith that makes us to seek, knock and to keep on knocking until the door is opened to us.
