Ask for a demotion at work to get paid less than a 1/4 of what you are currently making. Irresistible idea right? I mean, use this example: suppose you are making $100,000 a year. You are going to ask to starting making $25,000. before taxes??
Sounds crazy right? Go ahead admit it.. it’s crazy! But, what if God told you to do this? Still think it’s crazy?
For years God’s been dealing with me on so many issues. Finally, I got tired, of being tired,of being tired, of being tired, and I said OK God! My issues were many: need for control, fear, longing, stress, giving more of myself than I had, putting others needs ahead of my own (this is the short list).
I free fell into Gods will. I have to say once I did, I felt relief. Free and so light, that It wouldn’t have surprised me if I had floated on air.
I had no fear. I knew with a certainty I’d never felt before, that this, was the right thing to do.
I got that demotion! (I say this proudly) A few days later, I bought my forever home. I own it. I moved into the house a week later. It’s been months now, and I can say with certainty, I’m an overcomer because of God.
Bills are paid, I’m not hungry, I have everything I need. I lost nothing. In fact I’ve gained really valuable things…time being one and peace being another.
Peace means less stress. I now have more time for God. I get to go to church weekly to praise Him now and get the Word. I pray more. My relationship with God is so much deeper and richer. I understand myself better. I see life differently now. I’ve softened and become more tender in my life. I’ve opened myself to giving myself up to his will. I’ve overcome so much of all that was holding me hostage in my spiritual and personal growth.
Nobody but GOD could do what HE has done in my life in the past few months.
I can tell you that when God speaks, answering HIM is the right thing for me. I wish I had answered sooner. Well … maybe not … see if I had, I might not have the testimony I have now. I wouldn’t have the joy I have now. I wouldn’t have the peace I have now…
I also wouldn’t have the courage I have now to be transparent in my journey with GOD!
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
