“You must not have any other god but me.” - Exodus 20 :3 (NLT)
One of the most frustrating things that can happen to a business is getting a Facebook ad account shut down. That's what happened to me yesterday.
I woke up and saw an email that said my ad account was disabled for policy violation. I knew it had to be a mistake, but it will likely take weeks to rectify—weeks that I need.
My safety net is in knowing that if I do X, I will likely get Y results. But that’s not how faith works.
Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” If every move you make is assured, what do you need faith for?
The other day, I was catching up with a good friend of mine. I told her about some of the things I was working on, and she asked me what my goal was.
“My goal?” I asked in a confused tone. “To help hundreds of thousands of people grow in their relationship with God and stay encouraged in their daily walk.”
My friend wanted to make sure that I wasn’t losing myself in the process of building my business. I needed that heart check.
I truly believe that God allows obstacles to come into our lives to keep us humble and draw us closer to Him. It’s possible that God allowed my ad account to get disabled because I relied on numbers to get me to the next level more than Him.
We all need a constant heart check. And a faith check too.
“You must not have any other god but me.” - Exodus 20 :3
It’s crazy how easily we can make things into idols, but God doesn’t want us to put anything or anyone before Him. God is teaching me in the most subtle ways that believing He will do something and trusting Him to do it go hand in hand.
If we truly believe God will work things out in our lives for the good, then we do not need to be anxious about the things out of our control. Let God do His thing.
My question for you today is where’s your heart? What’s your goal? Are you relying on things more than God? If so, ask God to lead you down the right path, not your path.
There’s a lesson to be learned in every situation. And more often than not, the lesson is to let go and trust God.
God’s way may not always be the easy way, but it’s the best way. His path will build your faith and always lead you to victory!
