If you are like me, growing up, there are those types of people that really just seemed to get things so easily! Those "goody-two shoes" types that always jumped into everything and then excelled at the job and made it look so easy!
I would slog at the same mountains of burdens and at times barely finished the job in time. The effort it took almost killed me. How could these people do the same job… enjoy it and make it look so easy - in half the time!?
Very Simply put – They Were the Key to Their Own Success!
If truth be told (okay a moment of honesty here… watch out), I did the job because I had to and just wanted to get it done. It was not a joy or pleasure to do - it just had to be done. I was the shmo left to do it… gee thanks! The result? I never really got fully into the process. I just did it. I was on the outside looking in.
On the other hand, what made the other person different was the way they approached the same mountain I faced.
The other person made it their own. They took on the job and put everything they had into it. They put their full enthusiasm and expectation into it. By doing this, they tapped into a very powerful principle of success!
You see, when you commit and put your all into something, you tap into the potential to get revelation from the Lord to do the job better. When your heart is fully given into something, the Lord has tools to work with and is able to give you the best solution possible.
By putting your faith, hope and love into the job, you give the Lord all He needs to step in and do His part.
To use an old picture - By getting your boat's motor going, the Lord is now able steer the rudder. Until the boat is moving, the rudder will do nothing. It's potential is lost. When I committed myself to these jobs and problems, no matter the situation, I was amazed at how quickly the change came and with the revelation, I got to work smarter.
By not holding back, it gave the Lord everything He needed to make the job easier, faster and more enjoyable. With this new outlook, I walked away from this "less-pleasant" job, having learned something and became the better person from it. I learned new tricks that could be applied in the future when I needed it.
Let's face it, we will have times when our flesh will not enjoy what we know we have to do. That is a fact! Yet with the right outlook and the right commitment, you will see change come in every area of your life.
Why are you where you are today? Because you choose to be there! You have the tools to make things happen.
So what is staring you in the face today? What is waiting for you to give your all into? It does not matter if it is unpleasant… you know you need to do it!
Why not give yourself fully to it and allow the Lord to steer you along this journey? He knows the best route and the best tools to use.
The Lord waits for you today! You can expect God to bring about miracles in your life when you have played your part.
In His Love,
