How many time have you had a vision and ended up sitting on it as if it was an egg and it would hatch anytime soon? Me! I sure did that. I always put these doubts in my head, turned the other cheek and walked away. Now many of you may know I love God. Yes I sure do! And I was always taught about faith,sowing and reaping. But I wasn’t really taught about the value of money, how to use it to multiple and not just how to get by. How many of you all heard the scripture
““No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
Matthew 6:24 NKJV
I’m sure you have and how many times have you thought that meant you can’t get money and have God. Wrong answer and the devil is a liar. Don’t you think God wants us to be free and live an abundant life? God just doesn’t want money to become all we want, but He doesn’t mean we mustn’t have it. Why would money be invented if we weren’t meant to have it? Don’t you think God wants us to multiple? I bet some of you forgot the story about the talents let me remind you
““For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey. Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. And likewise he who had received two gained two more also. But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money. After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them. “So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’ His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ He also who had received two talents came and said, ‘Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.’ His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ “Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.’ “But his lord answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed. So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents. ‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’”
Matthew 25:14-30 NKJV
Ok now recognise these people were servants. And the one who ended up being called lazy and was casted out into the darkness why? Because he decided to sit on the vision, finance or task he was meant to achieve. You see God would never give vision and no provision. If He has given you something why would He not provide for the thing he has given you. God from the beginning of time God wanted us to have dominion over the earth and multiply.
Dominion – sovereignty or control.
Multiply – increase or cause to increase greatly in number or quantity.
“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.””
Genesis 1:27-28 NKJV
Now these are the very request that came out of Gods mouth. So I ask why are you sitting on what God has given you for such a time as this? Ladies I am not saying I haven’t done this before but what I am saying is I’ve been delivered. I no longer allow doubt to fill my mind with what if…….. where will I get…… How will I…….. No sorry it’s now filled with let’s do this……. I am ready……. Let’s go…… Lead me…….. Because when it’s all said and done I got 10 eyes looking up to me as the example. To be the Mum that says and does. The Mum that practices what she preaches. The Mum that never gave up. The Mum that made it work with the family.
I hope now some what I have helped you to shift the misconception of loving God and being broke out the window. If not just one more scripture I want you see quickly
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
John 10:10 NKJV
Abundantly – in large quantities; plentifully.
Oh wait sorry I’m not finished just yet this is the last one I promise…
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV
So what I’m saying is God wouldn’t give you a vision if he didn’t want you to live plentiful right? Ladies it’s time to get up off that buried vision and accomplish what God has purposed you to do here on earth.
