What happens when you take the time to pray, co-create a vision you believe is from God and still don’t have the assurance that being a Christian coach is God’s will for your life? This is something that comes up with new coaches…It must not be God’s will because I am not making money fast enough!
Well, here’s the truth…this is a LIE to cause you to be passive and not whole-hearted about solving your problem! Even John the Baptist at the very end of his mission, asked his followers to go and ask Jesus, “Are you the one, or is there another”? J-o-h-n T-h-e B-a-p-t-i-s-t. The man who was so sure about his mission he was eating bugs and rebuking kings without fear. Understand that every spiritual leader has to recognize and confront this lie.
I remember a time when things weren’t growing fast enough, and I kept going to God about it day after day in prayer. One day I was very frustrated with the Lord. I said, “Lord, I have been praying for you to solve this for many months now. I have asked you to download a plan to me and yet you haven’t.
I heard CLEAR AS DAY. “Becky, you’re not waiting on me, I’ve been waiting for you.”
I was stunned. I asked the Lord, what? How long have you been waiting on me? He said since the first day you asked me. WHATTTTT? I said you’re God. You give people plans; I was waiting for the perfect plan from you. It was going to be a revelation that glorified you because I waited on you and didn’t act in the flesh. (Don’t you love when you get spiritual on God and he calls your card….He said, no you’re fearful and don’t want to do whatever it takes to solve it!
I was so laid out by this revelation that I got up out of my prayer closet and solved it like I was on FIRE.
You may say like I have many times. “Lord, what if my plan fails 100 times”? Shouldn’t things grow faster if it’s your will? Here are some examples of ideas you may have to come with yourself:
- How to solve your ideal niche
- How to manage your time so you can grow your business on the side while you work
- How to solve lead generation
- How to create compelling packages that people love and give you great testimonials
So, get out the acceptable plan that you are going to have create and evaluate results with and begin to pray this over yourself=>
Lord, take my good, acceptable plan and turn it in your good and perfect will. I will not hide my talents this year or hold back because I am afraid of you or even my own failure. I will believe you that I AM BLESSED beyond the curse. I AM crucified in you, and it is no longer I that lives but Christ that lives in me. I AM not going to be held back by my lack of clarity, my feelings on how ill-equipped I feel to be a good spouse, parent, friend, business person….etc.I AM a light on a hill; I take the plunge to do great things for you. I will get back up every time I fail because you strengthen me.
To quote General George Patton, (Whom I am sure was very loved by God).
Better a good plan executed violently today than a perfect plan tomorrow.
Friend, when you pray, believe in faith and move forward with your acceptable plan. Trust God to make it a good and perfect plan.
