…then it’s probably God!

If It Sounds To Good To Be True…

(then It’s probably God!) 

With God_PossibleI know that you’ve heard the old saying that ‘if it sounds to good to be true then it probably is’. People usually say this when presented with an opportunity that is beyond their wildest dreams or expectations. This is especially true, when we’re confronted with MLM’s or home-based business opportunities. 

Many of us have a built-in automatic negative mindset trigger! This attitude allows us to pass over opportunity, after opportunity – forgetting all the while:

  • that with God ALL things are possible! {Matthew 19:26 / Mark 10:27}
  • That God has the ability to do above anything that we can ask or think! {Ephesians 3:20-21}
  • That God has, is, and will forever be working on our behalf! {Romans 8:31}
  • God will ALWAYS have our BEST interest at heart {Jeremiah 29:11}

The sad part is, we hardly ever investigate or do our due diligence on what’s being presented to us. We automatically assume that since it sounds that ‘good’ – then it must be a scam, pyramid scheme, or fraud…right? Yes, I do understand, that there are plenty of less unsavory people out there; who’s only interest is to take advantage of you – and  make you vulnerable in the name of profits (if you let them, or better yet…if God let’s them!). {Matthew 7:15}

However, my problem is we often (and very easily I might add) – “miss” our blessings, because we don’t follow these instructions: 

  • Make A List: First write down the priorities you believe God would have in your situation. Again, “…God would have in your…”. These are not the things that are important to you, but rather the things that are most important to God! Ask questions like: Will the outcome of my decision draw me closer to God? Will this opportunity Glorify God? How will it impact those around me?
  •  Seek God for Advice: Acknowledging God implies that we first ascertain whether what we’re about to take on is in accordance with His will and plan for our lives. This may even include seeking counsel from a spiritually mature person (i.e. Pastor, Elder, Parent..etc.).

Proverbs 3:6 – In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.

Proverbs 15:22 – Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counselors they are established.

Proverbs 16:3 – Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. 

  • Be Willing to Accept and Obey Gods’ Answer: It is absolutely essential that you and I humbly and fully submit to the Word of God during this process. 

John 15:14 – If you love me, you will keep my commandments. (Jesus speaking) 

  • Take ACTION on “our” Decision: If we have arrived at our decision with the sincere intention of pleasing the heart of God, incorporating biblical principles and wise counsel, we can then proceed with confidence knowing that God will work out his purposes through our decisions. 

Romans 8:28 – And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 

So, you see everything may not too good to be true; especially when you acknowledge God!! The next time some presents you with an opportunity (especially if you prayed about [it]) – please don’t limit yourself, by thinking that it’s out of your realm of possibility. 

From this point on, instead of saying, “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is”…continue to say, “if it sounds too good to be true, then it’s probably God!”
