Make sure you don’t forget GOD, your God, by not keeping his commandments, his rules and regulations that I command you today. Make sure that when you eat and are satisfied, build pleasant houses and settle in, see your herds and flocks flourish and more and more money come in, watch your standard of living going up and up—make sure you don’t become so full of yourself and your things that you forget GOD, your God (Deu 8:11)
I was still trying to ‘live by Faith’ when GOD opened the door for me to have my own business. Suddenly money began flowing in and (for me), it became so easy to become full of myself and the things and enjoy it.
One morning, I was walking through Red Lion Square in London, just heading off for a coffee when I heard the Lord speak to me in my heart, “I’ve taught you to live through lack, now I’m going to teach you how to live and survive in plenty!”
Brothers and sisters, it was the hardest, most horrible, hurtful time for me EVER!
Everybody wanted a piece of the pie! Business partners betrayed me. Friends betrayed me… and because I didn’t get the perceived ‘justice’ I believed I was entitled to from GOD, and in order to retain as much as I could, I willingly became the wicked avenger!
It was only when cancer came for me that my eyes finally opened and I realised that I wasn’t trusting GOD at all. I loved having the money (the power), just not the responsibility to GOD for it!
Like the old proverb, “Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it!” <3
