Don't be so solution focused that you forget to seek God for instruction. When an issue presents itself, maybe you are the first one scrambling your brain to figure out the best course of action. Though the world sees nothing wrong with this, as a Kingdom builder, you should. Whenever two people are in partnership, they come together to solve situations and create new innovations. But when one person in the partnership continues to only push forward their agenda, trust and believe that won't be a partnership for long.
We must think of our relationship with God the same way. He uses us here as His hands and feet to accomplish the purposes of His Kingdom. But if we are always running to our own understanding to solve problems, this only creates more issues. Though your solution may be spectacular, who's to say that it won't cause issues for the building assignment God has given you? It's His Kingdom, so you should be sensitive to how He wants it built.
Want a small piece of wisdom? Seek the instruction of the Lord and He shall prosper you in all your ways. When issues arise, go to the altar. Don't try and create your own solutions for a vision that God gave you. Honor your partnership with Him and include Him in on every detail and issue. Watch how the honor you express will birth favor for you in every way with that business/ministry/avenue.
“Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord.”
Proverbs 16:20 NIV
“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
Joshua 1:8 NKJV
Reflection Question(s): We invite you to discuss below.
What is God currently partnered with you on? What are some of the instructions He has given you in the past? Have they caused you to prosper? Why do you run to your own solutions for a vision God has given you? What keeps you from seeking God's will first? How can you better align yourself to seek God's instruction and abandon your own solutions?
