"JULIE, WHEN ARE YOU COMING TO WORK?"
That was me harassing my seventeen-year-old daughter this week! She told me, and she stuck with her word joining me day before yesterday at our office. We’re in the car business, and I gave her the assignment to sit with a manager and assist him with posting ads on the internet. She sat with him until all vehicles were listed. That’s my hardworking boo! Early the following day, some customers showed up showing us one of the ads Julie posted.
Long story short, they ended up buying the vehicle, but you wouldn’t believe the name of the customer… Julie. How did JULIE end up coming to buy a car from an ad JULIE posted? Believe it or not, this was one of my perfectly orchestrated God alignments to let me know that He is with me as I work on this overwhelming challenge of getting our business back on track. There is no way that my daughter, JULIE can show up one day to help us with our advertising, and another JULIE shows up to purchase one. THIS WAS NO ORDINARY COINCIDENCE; it was God!
There is an important verse in the Bible I live my life by:
“’Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty” (Zechariah 4:6).
Meaning that I’m relying on God who is working in the spiritual realm on my behalf. Yesterday, in my appointment with Him, He said that I should look at this getting our business on track again as a lighthearted challenge that He and I can handle together. In other words, ‘Nik, have fun with it, I’m with you to help you!’ So, as Julie showed up to post ads, God's Spirit made sure that the other Julie saw it and showed up to buy it. Like I always say, “Teamwork makes the dream work.” God and I are a TEAM, baby, as I bravely and joyfully tackle every aspect of my life with Him!
Perspective is everything! With God on our side, we can show up giving life our very best and trust that He can do what we can’t do: “’Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.” It’s just for us to learn His voice and follow where He leads us on a moment-by-moment basis. His ways are not our ordinary human ways, His ways are far superior. I get my wisdom from God on living my best life, and I want you here with me. Make sure you wake up every day making Him your priority!!! Instead of saying I have a lot on my plate, I’ve made God the plate. Meaning I’m centering everything on Him seeking His help with EVERYTHING I do, say, and everywhere I go. He is my life Partner! This life is much too hard to go it alone! WE NEED GOD!
