You Are Well Able

We all face obstacles, challenges, and difficult circumstances, but as believers in business, we know we also have the ability to OVERCOME any obstacle that we may face.  

This week on the VLOG I share that YOU are well able to face your challenges and overcome with FAITH! Watch the video or read the post below:

Quick Summary:

No matter what situation you may be facing right now:

  • REALIZE that YOU are well ABLE
  • KNOW that the Lord is with YOU
  • FEAR NOT
  • TRUST that God will allow you to OVERCOME

Caleb's Declaration to the Israelites

We can learn from the story of Caleb and Joshua about overcoming obstacles.  Caleb looked past the circumstances in the promised land.  The others negatively reported:

  • The people are strong
  • The city is walled and the wall is great
  • The land was inhibited by their enemies (Amalekites)
  • The mountains were inhibited
  • The sea was inhibited 

But Caleb looked past the circumstances in the land and declared:

  • Let us go up at once and posses it
  • We are well able to overcome it

The group continued to be negative and stated:

  • The people are GIANTS
  • We are GRASSHOPPERS in their eyes

The Israelites were devastated because of the bad report, but another person had a good perspective like Caleb. Joshua said:

  • The Lord delights in us, He will bring us into this land, and give it to us
  • The Lord is with us
  • Fear not

The only two people in that generation who eventually made it to the promised land were Joshua and Caleb.  The two individuals who had a POSITIVE perspective.  

Practical Lessons:

  1. REALIZE that YOU are well ABLE
  2. KNOW that the Lord is with YOU
  3. FEAR NOT
  4. TRUST that God will allow you to OVERCOME

Scripture References:

  • Numbers 13:1-33
  • Numbers 14:1-10

How to Overcome Mountains, Storms, and Giants in Life and Business

Life is full of difficult circumstances that feel like mountains, storms and giants.  The good news is we have the ability to overcome any obstacle that we may face in life. 

This week on the VLOG I share how to overcome the mountains, storms, and giants of life and business. Watch the video or read the post below:

Quick Summary:

The circumstances that we face in life and business usually fall under the following categories:

  1. Mountains–  The obstacles that appear in our path
  2. Storms–  The situations that feel overwhelming 
  3. Giants–  The people who are difficult and hard to deal with 
We have the ability to overcome the impossible obstacles, hard situations, and difficult people by turning to God, trusting God, and confidently moving forward in life and in business. 

Mountains

Mountains are defined as the things that seem to be impossible to manage or overcome.  

We can learn about mountains from the story of the Israelites and the Red Sea (Exodus 14:1-32).  When they were being pursued by the king’s army and the only way out was to move forward into the sea, they were instructed by Moses (their leader) to not be afraid, be brave because the Lord will save them.

So they bravely moved forward through the Red sea and God opened up the water so that they could walk on dry ground.  

When the Egyptians tried to follow them they were swallowed up by the water and drowned.  

From this experience the Israelites knew without a doubt that the Lord had saved them and worshiped Him and trusted Him. 

SUMMARY: 

When you’re facing a mountain in your life or business where things look impossible turn to God, get instructions from Him, and move forward.  Then you will experience the goodness of God for yourself. 

Storms

Storms are defined as the situations that are hard or difficult to deal with.  

We can learn about how to deal with the storms in our lives from the story of the disciples caught in a storm with Jesus (Matthew 8: 23-27).  Jesus and the disciples were on a boat and a severe storm happened.  

During the storm Jesus was asleep.  The disciples were so scared that they woke Jesus up and said, “Save Us!”

Jesus response was, “Why are you so fearful and have no faith?” He then went on to quiet the storm and the sea became calm.  

The disciples were astonished by how easily Jesus calmed the raging storm.  

SUMMARY:

When Jesus is in the midst of your situation, there is no need to worry.  You can have the peace of Jesus and sleep through the storm or the power of Jesus to calm the storm.  When you trust and believe, God can handle anything. 

Giants

A giant is defined as a person who is in power or has influence that you are having a difficult time with.  

We can learn about giants from the story of David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17:1-58).  The Israelites were being threatened by a giant named Goliath.  

The king said he would give great wealth, his daughter, and tax exemption to any man that kills Goliath.  

David felt like he could slay the giant, so King Saul sent for him and offered to give him the equipment to fight Goliath (sword, armor, etc.).  

David refused Saul’s equipment and opted for a stone and sling shot.  

With the stone and sling shot, David was able to slay the giant and win the battle.  

SUMMARY:

When you are confident in God, confident in the ability He has given you, and not intimidated, you can defeat any giant in your life as long as you remain true to you, authentic, bold, and courageous. 

Scripture References:

Mountains–  Israelites and the Red Sea (Exodus 14:1-32)

Storms–  The disciples caught in a storm with Jesus (Matthew 8: 23-27)

Giants- David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17:1-58)

The Power of EVEN Faith

Introducing the Women Faith + Business Vlog.  Each week I will be sharing a faith-based message that can be applied to life and business.  

This week I share about the Power of EVEN Faith.

How many times have you found yourself saying even if this happened, even though I did that, or even now I don’t about the circumstances or opportunities that have shown up in your life? Those thoughts or words created doubt in your life, but what if you used even if, even though, and even now statements to activate your faith in God instead of questioning it.

Watch the video or read the post to discover 3 types of “Even” Faith that allow you to confidently EXPECT the goodness of God in ANY situation. 

Quick Summary:

 
THE 3 TYPES OF EVEN FAITH:

  • EVEN IF you think things may not go the way you’re hoping, trust God is going to be with you and He will protect you.
  • EVEN THOUGH it’s not in your time, trust God’s perfect timing.
  • EVEN NOW when it seems impossible, know that nothing is impossible for God.

"Even If" Faith

The inspiration for EVEN IF Faith comes from the story of the 3 faithful Hebrew boys, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego.  

When faced with the circumstance of a new law set by King Nebuchadnezzar that everyone had to worship the golden image that he created, and whoever did not worship the image would be put to death by fiery furnace, the Hebrew boys had to make a DECISION to remain faithful to God and His ways.  

They knew it was not right to worship any other gods or bow down to images, so they refused!  

They had confidence that God would deliver them from the fiery furnace, but EVEN IF He didn’t they would not serve the god of King Nebuchadnezzar or worship the golden image.  

Because of their decision they were cast in the fire, but the fire did not consume them and God was with them.

They had EVEN IF Faith!  Even if it doesn’t turn out the way we are believing, we will be obedient to God and TRUST Him!

"Even Though" Faith

The inspiration for EVEN THOUGH Faith comes from the story of Abram and Sarai. God promised Abram that he would be the father of many descendants. Abram BELIEVED! 

But after a longtime Sarai did not conceive, so Sarai took things into her own hands and convinced Abram to sleep with their servant Hagar. Abram agreed and they conceived a son, Ishmael.  

However, Ishmael was not the son that God had promised.  God had promised that Sarai would conceive and through Abram and Sarai would be the many descendants.

Sarai and Abram continued to wait on God, but questions whether in his and his wife’s old age they would be able to have a son, finally Sarai has Isaac in her 90’s!  Even at this age God made it possible.  

Abram and Sarai had EVEN THOUGH Faith and knew that God keeps His promises and NOTHING is impossible for God. So EVEN THOUGH they were older and waited so many years, and made mistakes, God kept His promise to them. 

"Even Now" Faith

The inspiration for EVEN NOW Faith comes from the story of Lazarus.  Lazarus was a friend of Jesus who was very sick.  His sisters, Mary and Martha called for Jesus to help their brother because he was so sick.

Jesus took His time in going to Lazarus and Lazarus died.  When Jesus finally made it there, Martha said, “If you had been here, my brother would not have died. But I know that EVEN NOW God will give you whatever you ask.”

Jesus replied and said, “Your brother will rise again!” Martha had to BELEIVE that Jesus could raise her brother from the dead EVEN NOW after he had been dead for several days!

Martha and Mary had to have EVEN NOW Faith!

Scripture References:

  • “Even if” Faith–  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego- Daniel 3:1-30
  • “Even though” Faith–  Abram and Sarai- Genesis 15:1-6, Genesis 16:1-4, Genesis 17:1-22
  • “Even now” Faith–  Lazarus- John 11:1-45

    Top 5 most impactful books in 2023

    This year has been a year of GROWTH and a large contributor to my growth this year has been the books that I have read. In this post I’m sharing the top 5 books that impacted me the most this year.

    Every year I select a daily devotional and this year I selected this devotional. I have several devotionals by Joyce Meyer, but this one was so impactful this year because each day includes a scripture verse, a story, a thought of the day, and the opportunity to dig deeper on the topic for that day by offering two additional scripture verses. I especially like this feature because it allows me to go deeper into what God’s word says about the topic for that day. I liked it so much that I will be doing the same devotional again next year for 2024!

    I was led to purchase this additional devotional journal this year, so in addition to my daily devotional I also did this devotional journal for 100 days in 2023. What I like most about this devotional is the journaling. Being able to go deeper by journaling my thoughts and getting one word a day to remind me of who I am in Christ really helped to boost and impact my confidence. Each day provides a word, scripture verses to support the word of the day, a key scripture, a place to journal your thoughts and a declaration.

    I was introduced to this book in my Pinnacle Forum group. A group that has helped me to grow personally and spiritually. This book is a must read and something that I will definitely read again. It taught me the importance of circling my prayers and the many ways that I can circle my prayers including circling and praying about a scripture/promise of God, physically circling something, and circling my prayers by fasting. This book is powerful and is now in my top list of all spiritual development books that I have in my library.

    This book is a supplement to The Circle Maker book. Each day of the challenge offers a scripture verse, an explanation and an impactful quote to help you grow spiritually and specifically in the area of your prayer life. It’s easy to digest as it’s in bit sized daily content. This book was something that we also did as a group in my Pinnacle Forum group and we were able to share praise reports, insights, ah ha’s and more as a group which made it even more impactful.

    This was a small, short, but powerful book that shared the power in what we believe. Our belief is one of the greatest abilities God has given us so taking time to read a book about unlocking the power of believing was so impactful this year. As I continue my journey to believe bigger!

    Honorable mentions:

    This year I published by first collaborative book, so I couldn’t create a list of books that impacted me the most in 2023 without including my very own 90-Day Activate Your Faith Journal

    This journal is all about taking the steps to overcome key blessing blockers that stop women of faith in their tracks. Things like procrastination, fear, complaining, doubt, distraction, etc. The journal includes 10 days of going deep on each of the 9 blessing blockers included in the journal and allows you space to journal about how the blessing blocker may be impacting you. Each page has a scripture verse to help you study God’s Word on the topic and each author shares how she overcame or is overcoming this blessing blocker in her life. It also include special gifts from each author. It was definitely impactful for me in leading this book project and I pray and hope it will be impactful for all those who read and consume the journal.

    What books have impacted you this year? Be sure to comment below:
