Every Sunday, I take a break from writing about Work, Life, and Changing the World. Instead, I write about my imperfect understanding of God’s perfect love as my personal mission to spread His word and His love and to make a difference. You can read more Mission posts here.
You have been praying so hard for a breakthrough in your life—in your career, in your business, in your finances, and even in your love life!
God wants to bless you. He really does!
His blessings are all around you and He stands ready to overflow and overwhelm you with His blessings!
The question is: Do you have a pipeline for His blessings?
Do you have a barn that God can fill up?
Do you have a tank that God can fill up and overflow?
You cannot expect financial blessings to come when you don't even have a job or a business. God will not have a pipeline through which He can send you your blessings in the form of unexpected bonuses or sales.
You cannot expect to get closer to that person you like when you don't even go out and just stay at home all the time!
Don't expect breakthroughs in your life when you're not taking action.
God doesn't have problems giving His blessings. Most of the time, we just have problems receiving them.
Take action and give God a pipeline!
What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister has nothing to wear and has no food for the day, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, keep warm, and eat well,” but you do not give them the necessities of the body, what good is it? So also faith of itself, if it does not have works, is dead. Indeed someone might say, “You have faith and I have works.” Demonstrate your faith to me without works, and I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works. — James 2: 14-18
