The one thing that I hear so often, and rightfully so I guess, is if God be willing I will get what’s coming to me if it is to be. Oh, that obvious qualifier is one of my top pet peeves of all Christian time. Of course, you don’t want to do anything that God is not willing that you do; and I have a news flash for you, you won’t get it if God not be willing. If God is not willing to do it, you will know it early enough to jump into your back up plan. So I recommend to those that have worn out that as an opening statement, to at least give it a rest before you out of habit, pass up the next shot at opportunity by wondering if God be willing. To tell you the truth about it all, if it is not a right out sin, or going against a direct word from God, or having doubt come up when you hear the staple foundation scriptures that keep us in our lanes, it is pretty much open season. You know in the beginning God pretty much said his will to us concerning how we should go about our lives: simply put, he said to go and dominate the earth. Here it is right here: Genesis 1:26, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” If we, especially including me, could have a coin for every shot at something we wanted, needed, or been called to do that came into our lanes, and we greeted it with “if God be willing,” as the shot at the opportunity was passing on by, there would not have been a better investment opportunity for growth today. Check that, if you invested even a small amount in Bitcoin ten years ago, you are probably out on your knees somewhere giving thanks to God for being so willing. lol. Yeah, I must admit to setting that up with the coin thing example because to me it is just so amazing at what and when we are willing to thank God for being so willing.
And don’t get me wrong, I know that life requires a little more attention to detail before many can just go for the passer by opportunity, but I also stand ready to back up that requiring more detail at times, is the reason that the shot at opportunity was able to pass us by. And many times the details that we would look into will have no bearing as to whether or not we should have taken the shot at it or not. Here is my problem with how most of us Christians process the opportunities that we get, and how we end up losing the bid because we trusted the wrong system first. We are indeed suppose to milk the earth cow to get the best results possible, and that is not the problem that we have. The problem that we do have with the milking of that cow is that we don’t realize until we’ve exhausted ourselves through the world system, that we should have been preparing for the world system cow to not be willing to allow us to milk it at the level in which we need. We have done, and are doing this thing in reverse. We are quick to caution ourselves as to whether or not God be willing, but we run gung-ho into the world system without a concern as to whether or not it is willing to give back to us. If I’m the Prince of this earth, I wouldn’t change a thing. I would continue to allow a small percentage of Christians to appear to have arrived, while the majority continue to have hope that my world system will benefit them. We are allowed to enter the system disproportionally to be represented, but we are allowed to only milk it up to a point, and only on certain levels.
Here is what I mean when I say that we don’t give the same caution to the world system as we do to God, when it comes to taking the shot at opportunities. We don’t worry about the world system as much because its opportunities are offered to all in a natural, and self-selected manner. We don’t feel the need for caution because it’s all familiar, and we aid its acceptance by believing that God made it happen. And again, because we are successful at many of the world’s opportunities, the prince of the world can keep us under reins because we give God all of the credit for his system when it works. Many things that we do, and that we give God the credit for doing, just allows the enemy to take advantage of us. If we always give God the credit for doing everything for us in the world system, we will be slow to elect God’s assistance on stuff that neither we or the world system can give us. And why do we have to be down and out before we cast aside the if God be willing qualifier? No, when we get to that point, we are all over God whether he be willing or not. There are many people with testimonies that come from only a dire position where God was the last resort, and of course that is fine. I want to see us moving in God for opportunities while there is still money in the bank, still in good health, and still happy to wake up to see another day. If we always believe that it was God blessing us in the world system, we will only look for him through the world system. The Father wonders at times, and looks to see what our gifts bring to the surface from which he has placed within us. Yes, we know it is his will that we dominate, but he may just stand there to see what you do, with what you have, to get what he wants you to have. The world tells us how to do its will, but we miss a lot from God because he was looking to see what we would do with his will. So he might be willing for it to be, but he might also be willing to let you take care of his light work also. The world has weaken us in how we come to God because of how it controls; and we shouldn’t look for God to control every step along the way as the world tries to do. We miss opportunities because God didn’t control it all the way, and we let it pass by believing that God was not willing because he wasn’t controlling it as we have come accustom to the world system doing. I love it in the bible where God has Adam to name the animals just to see what he would name them. Let’s read that verse: Genesis 2:19, “ And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.” So you already know that God be willing, and now you are going to have to name some things on your own that he brings forth to you. And once you name the opportunity, just know that whatever you called the opportunity, that will be its name: so name the opportunity by the name of the need or the want that you have to bring to pass for that which you hope for. Listen, the world system can’t touch you naming the physical substance needed, by the name of the thing that you need. So the physical substance could have been named one thing, but God’s system is capable of it being sufficient from the start to be named that which was in you. Let’s not pass up the shot at an opportunity anymore, for we already know that God be willing. Now do something with it to profit withal yourself, and name the substance what you need.
