It’s amazing how often I complicate what God requires of me.

If I’m complicating the things of God, its probably because I’m not spending enough time in the Word of God. And in that case, I realize I have to get back to the basics and to what is important. Yesterday, during my quiet time, I got a revelation about what impresses God. And upon that revelation, I started to think about 2017 and what preceded every blessing God gave me. I realized that my faith in Who God is, and what He can do, than the application of my faith preceded every blessing. Today I’ll be sharing how not only my faith, but also the application of it preceded the blessing of the Rachael Ray Show.

If you missed my Rachael Ray testimony on Instagram live, I spoke about how almost two years ago during my quiet time with God, He told me to write a book. Although I didn’t start writing the book immediately, I did eventually write a few e-books. As to what I should have wrote about, I didn’t know at the time. I just knew writing a book would be paramount to wherever God was taking me. When Rachael Ray’s segment coordinator reached out to me to potentially be on an episode, she asked me if I ever offered tips to my blog readers about shopping on a budget. To which I mentioned the Office Best Dressed E-book I wrote and had available for sale. The segment coordinator asked me to send her a copy so that she could further determine if I’m the blogger she’s looking for. Although this wasn’t later confirmed by the segment coordinator, there isn’t a doubt in my mind that my e-book helped me land a spot on the show for the fashion segment. And it’s simply because I was 1. obedient and 2. believed in what God can do with the book I wrote.

When you look at many of the miracles that Jesus performed, you’ll find that He always did them as a result of the person’s faith. He often healed, forgave, and blessed people according to their faith. Regarding the woman with the blood issue, she was healed because she believed Jesus to be a Healer and acted on said faith by touching the hem of His garment (Matthew 9:20-22). The same applied to the two blind men. Not only did they believe they could they be healed, they also chased after Jesus (Matthew 9:27-30). Regarding the Centurion, his slave was healed because He believed a word from Jesus could heal him. The application of his faith was him asking that the Lord not come to his house but simply speak the word of healing (Luke 7). Time and time again, the Bible shows us that God is moved and impressed by the faith, and the application thereof, of His people.

So many times we profess to have faith in God, but where is the application of our faith? Is it enough to just say you believe? How do your actions prove to God that you have faith? Hebrews 11 talks about the great faith of people in the Bible. And over and over again, we see that all of these people MOVED in faith. Similarly, if I didn’t actually write my e-books, would it mean anything to say I heard God tell me to write them? The application of our faith  impresses God. If you say you believe but don’t do any work to match that belief, than your belief is in vain. Faith without works is dead.

How will you work your faith in 2018?

    You twist the miracles of Jesus and use the word of God to promote eshakti and your ebook for your own monetary gain. It may sound harsh but that is a fact. 2 Cor 7:17 says “For we are not like so many, peddling God’s word for a living” or commercializing, profiting from. This is what so many churches and so called Pastors do. I think you are better than that. When you speak of Gods word the bible please do so seperate from promotion and monetary gain and try to be accurate. This whole story has nothing to do with the faith mentioned at Hebrews 11.

    2 Corinthians 7:17 doesn’t exist. Please proofread before you come for me.

    “As a man thinketh, so is He.” Proverbs 23:7 You THINK I’m sharing my testimony for monetary gain because you probably have been tempted to do so in the past. Don’t place your lusts of the heart on me. We aren’t always tempted in the same way. I’ve been blessed with a great salary outside of blogging.

    None of my profits have EVER come from me sharing the gospel or my own testimonies. Did you actually think before you wrote this comment? Why would I even use the miracles of Jesus to promote an e-book about Instagram? Or a dress?! Where is the correlation?

    “When you speak of God’s Word … please do so seperate from promotion and monetary gain…”
    Um no thanks, I’ll do as the Spirit of God leads me to do. Not a divisive so called disciple named Aaron.

    If you lived during the era of Elijah and the woman at Zarephath, you’d probably tell Elijah that He was peddling God’s Word for profit too! LOL

    Aaron- just as I have said BEFORE, if you want to have a DISCUSSION about something you think I’m doing that is contrary to God’s WORD EMAIL ME.

    I’m no longer allowing for you to comment on my page with such ridiculous criticisms, especially without inquiring of my intention. If you continue to potentially divide the body of Christ in front of unbelievers, you’ll never be of any effect. Peace!

    My bad. 2 Cor 2 :17. The words are there I just wrote the wrong chapter. Again i’ll quote for you: “For we are not like so many, peddling God’s word for a living”.
    Its there in the Bible which was written under the influence of Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit would never lead you to do anything contrary to what is written in the Bible. The Holy Spirit does not contradict itself.
    Like I said it may sound harsh but its true. I apologise that I upset you that is not my intention, I just don’t like to see individuals using scripture to make money. These two things should not mix regardless of intention. Like you say you have a great salary outside of blogging which is great, im very happy for you, which emphasises even more so that doing such a thing is totally unnecessary.

      AGAIN!!!!!!! I have not made a single dollar using scripture and I’ve never intended to do so. Please don’t ever read any religious books other than the Bible. Lest you judge them for using scripture to make money. Don’t apologize. Think next time you reply to any of my posts. I’m leaving this ridiculous discussion with you in 2017.
