During a recent shopping excursion I was comparing prices on some sale items in order to determine what goodies would come home with me. It was then I heard a small whispering voice inside of me ask, “Are you really getting a deal?” I had to think about that for a moment. I mean, what is considered a deal? Just because a price is marked down does not automatically make the purchase a deal.
With every dollar I spend, I am investing in someone else’s dream or idea. There is nothing wrong with that. However, if taking advantage of deals on everyone else’s dreams means that I do not invest in my own dreams, then what started out as a benefit could end up being a downfall.
We consume for the purpose of self-gratification, yet we invest so little towards the fulfillment of our personal visions. This mentality is deadly to our legacy and generational wealth. Prosperity is an opportunity afforded to all who choose to take advantage of it. However, it starts with our mindsets. Let us take a minute to learn something together. Our power word for this post is: Invest.
According to Webster’s Dictionary, invest means: “furnish with power and authority.” God the Father is waiting for His children to reap the harvest that He has provided within our souls. If we do not value the internal investments of ideas, creativity, character and talents given to us as a Dunamis Woman and/or Real Awesome Men we will continue to dismiss our worth by looking for externalities.
Based on the power that God has invested within your soul, use your mind to imagine your future! No longer are you permitted to walk in the shallow waters of life. You have ideas and dreams and you are letting excuses stop your flow of thoughts. As a result, they are constantly being pushed back and smothered by circumstances, conditions, challenges, trials, and tribulations.
Whatever you are permitted to conceptualize, think about, daydream or ponder over, be assured that He will provide above and beyond our most vivid imaginations. Our Father is waiting to receive a return on every investment that He has made, because the death, burial and resurrection of His only Son was the best deal ever made, and it was free to all mankind!
